Again, I do not know if this helps or not. I have trouble understanding what half of that stuff even means.
I too really want the models for this game. I thought that I should post these even if there is only a slight chance that these could work. I will let you know if I find out anything thing else.
Oh yeah. One more thing. Have you tried using Ninja Ripper to get the models? I tired it but I only end up getting useless 1kb files from it. I do not know why either. Maybe you can't use it on this game? Or maybe my computer cannot handle it? Maybe you will have better luck than me.
In that pic you just posted, it looks like you have the mesh of the model, right? I personally just want that. I really do not need the bones or the animations. Great job by the way! I am glad progress is being made finally.
I wanted to let everyone know that I'm learning how to rip the models using the particular way Luffy (chrrox on Xentax!) used to obtain the ones he posted.
If I manage to learn I'll release them for everyone.
