Battlefleet Gothic Armada 2 PSKX files not importing, Causing Max to Freeze
« on: January 17, 2019, 22:36 »

What it says in the title. I exported a set of PSKX models from BFG Armada 2, and attempted to open them in 3ds Max. When loading the file using latest ActorX importer, the model began to load, until it reached the material stage, then it caused 3ds Max to lock up. Also, for anyone interested in working with Battlefleet Gothic Armada 2, it uses Unreal Engine 4.18.

I have a couple examples of models which caused the issue:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1aoFyYJsRIQHEzdykvWOGmEuQJM7JgnRs

I believe its due to the texture files being extremely large, and 3ds Max's script function running out of memory. I will attempt to load the model without its textures available to the script, and see if that fixes the issue.

Blender can do it without fuss, even both at the same time Cheesy.



3ds Max on the other hand completely crashed Windows 10 UI for me lol.



Looking at over 1 million verts combined.

This seems like 3Ds maxs limitation. It can't handle so many polygons. After 20 minutes of it trying to import it did, by using 28gb RAM out of my 32gb.


As Blenux showed, Blender is obviously much better for this, use this importer https://github.com/Befzz/blender3d_import_psk_psa .

Hello;)
I'm new in this forum, I registered in this web because I saw this thread, The only reason by which I registered is due to I want models from battlefleet gothic armada. I haven't game and I don't like game playability. Only I like models. Can you send me models? I want models from chaos, imperium, eldars, orks and tyranids, 1 model of type is enough (example: 1,gloriana, 1 battlecruiser, 1 cruiser, 1 light cruiser, 1 scort, 1 transport) you can upload to drive and send me link.
Ok, I understand is a lot of work to you, but I don't know how get this models, Should to buy game only to models? Besides I don't know how import models to blender, I see you use 32 gb of RAM. I have only 16 gb of RAM, maybe I won't be able to load models in blender...
It would be great if you could load a video where show me how import models to blender. I don't know to use blender. Besides I don't know how to install this (https://github.com/Befzz/blender3d_import_psk_psa)
greetings and thanks

You CAN'T open Unreal files in Blender. You should use UModel (UE Viewer) to export things to psk or glTF format, and then use Blender addon to import that EXPORTED content.

UModel.exe is shipped with SDL2.dll. Nothing else is needed. I think you've got a mess with something else.

1. Your umodel is terribly old. Where did you download it, man?
2. There's a page for this game - https://www.gildor.org/smf/index.php/topic,6505.0.html Please note that it tells a different engine version than you tried to use.
