Well, this script for Blender 2.63+ will import some Diorama Studio models, but not all are complete (like faces)

Link

Its something for the non-Max people at least.

EDIT: I discovered the version I was testing on my laptop was 2.62, and that was why it did not work. 2.63 and up should work fine.

EDIT2:

Here is a link to the 3DS Max Importer plugin for versions 2010, 2011, and 2012

EDIT3:
And here is a version that requires the Max.NET plugin also be installed.

ok i finally had some (Little) time to extract the files and see what's in them...

i decided to separate the battle rondo and diorama studio files on different folders to see if there's any size difference and for what i can tell the bulk of the game in on the battle rondo folder (so pretty much Diorama studio uses the resources from there... i'm still wondering why konami decided to put dstudio on a different folder if 90% of the stuff it uses isnt even there...)

one thing that i want to ask before i advance any further is: ¿does quickbms extract only the relevant files or all files? because the sound files are too damn small and there's a lot of folders that are empty....

(just to note: quickbms asked me to overwrite existent files or skip them, i did the latter, maybe i needed to overwrite after all?)

offtopic edit: i almost break myself in tears of pure nostalgia after hearing the sound files from the "agl" folder (aka: arnval's voice files) :*) :*(

sorry for the double (triple!?) posting but... well... it didn't work... i installed the scripts and tried to import the files into 3dsmax 2010 (x64) and... nothing....

i dont know if its because i'm using the 64 bit versión or maybe because i didn't ovewrite the files when quickbms asked me to....

does someone here can give it a try? i'll try again at work and see what happens there... but iw would be useful if someone else manage to open those dff files and find some use for them....

Out of curiosity (And yeah, I realize I'm a bit late here), what format are the sound files?

Just to clarify for someone who doesn't really know much of anything about battle rondo (or even computers really)
even with the applications and data files, there is no way to use BR or DS anymore, since it requires communication with the online server to operate, correct?

i downloaded the files and might see if i can import them into any of the software that i have, but i doubt I'll have any success, so don't get your hopes up.

correct! so right now all the stuff contained within the game is useless until someone manage to successfully export the 3D files, the sound (read: voice) files are a-ok though... if someone needs them (and assuming there's no rule breaking here) let me know.

good luck with that!
