Can't create cyberfaces as blender doesn't let me open PNG files.

Postby fritodelay on Mon Apr 29, 2019 10:26 am

It's a shame that the last good video on how to create Cyberfaces was made like two games ago and features a different version of Blender given how large the community is. If I didn't know any better, I'd assume people don't want more folks to figure out making cyberfaces. Anywho, gripes aside Blender keeps saying "File Format is not supported" and PNG files won't even show up until I click "enable filtering of files".

Is there a fix to this? because I followed everything the video I saw did religiously, but I think things might've changed since its 2k19.

The only major change that I'm aware of between now and that previous tutorial is that you need to clear out the LOD's. So when you open the hihead.scne file in notepad, at the very bottom there is a section that looks like this:

"Lods": [
"hihead_LODShape1",
"hihead_LODShape2",
"hihead_LODShape3",
"hihead_LODShape4",
"hihead_LODShape5"


Delete the LOD parts so it reads like this:

"Lods": [
"hihead",
"hihead",
"hihead",
"hihead",
"hihead"

Other than that I'm fairly certain the process is the same. And no, those that can create could careless whether more people make faces. It's not a competition.

I will say, it's frustrating for those of us who put the time in learning the process and then new people take issue with all that goes into modding, get frustrated and just ask for others to make faces. But it's clear you're trying so I'm happy to help get the ball rolling if I can.

Thanks, I just deleted the LODs. The latest- and only applicable video I can find has modder importing the files into Blender effortlessly and by going into the Scene Editor tab on the side. He clicks on the importer on that same tab, finds the file and imports it.

My blender doesn't even have an importer on that side, The only way I can find anything containing the word import in it is the top after clicking on file, then finding import- once I click that it gives me a variety of formats but none of them work. Not that I'd know which one would be applicable in this case either way.

You need the NBA 2k import/export for blender: 2K18 Blender Importer/Exporter

Make sure to follow the README file

After proper installation, you should have the same plugin that TheGoods uses in that video.
