I used the SFp1 File Extracter to see if it would extract files from WOI (F-16, etc.). I extracted everything that the F-16 needed from WOI "object.CAT" (I think that's what it's called) file and it flies fine. The only thing is that the maintenance guys are using a really good form of Windex to clean the canopy because I can't even see it! :blink: I did the same thing for the F-15A Baz and it's canopy is visible. Note below.

What is going on?

Have you patched WOI?

 

The original had a typo in the reflection tga name and so the canopy reflections don't show.

 

You need to patch WOI first.

 

Or you can rename the F-16's reflection tga to correct name - the typo was using - (hyphen) instead of _ (underline). So where you find - change to _)

Viper6> Nope, this clearly is a Targa (forget the geeky pun, I'll explain if needed).

My guess without being able to test right now would be that it is indeed an issue with the tinting of the canopy, through a TGA file IIRC, meaning it's either missing, incorrect, uncorrecly named etc...

From memory, there is 2 TGA needed for WOI's F-16, one named GoldCanopy.tga and another CanopyGlass.tga or something like that, I guess you only extracted one and not the other.

 

BTW, why spending time backporting WoI's F-16 into SFP1/WoV/WoE when the Mirage Factory version is quite adequate ?

I'll try patching WOI. That may help my problem. I almost said "convertable" too. Just it would be a little cold and windy "with the top down"... :biggrin:

The Mirage Factory F-16's are really good. I love them. I just wanted to try and see if the WOI F-16 worked in SFp1. I have almost every major series F-16 in SFp1. There are few F-16's that are not Mirage Factory in my game. Thanks for all of the replies! :good:

there are a couple of "common" files in the objectdata.cat, like canopy and hud tga's..

they are near the top of the .cat list in the extraction tool, open it, then scroll down about a half window.. those tga's are below the crater lods

Reflection tga error made the canopy invisible from inside - not outside.

 

Thanks for correcting.
