Title: RE3SLDE: A tool to edit SLD files...
Post by: Leo2236 on August 16, 2014, 09:25:52 pm
-RE3SLDE v0.8b-

About:
It's an editor for RE3[PC] SLD files those files contains compressed masks in PSX TIM format. This tool can Export an mask within SLD to TIM, BMP, SLD and replace from TIM file. After editing an SLD the game exe(ResidentEvil3.exe) itself must be patched otherwise mask will look buggy or the game will simply crash to avoid that use "Tools->Select EXE" option to specify game exe after that every time you save an SLD specified exe will be patched automatically. I have tried this tool only with several SLD from Stage1 and it seems that it work.

Note:
The v0.8b support all stages(1~7) and support only those versions of the game (UK, USA, Xplosiv)...

Very great tool!

I'm testing with RE3English.exe version and it works properly.
I edit with simple modification on cam_00 of RDT100 [saveroom]. I 'paint' this layer with green color table and save.
This is the result:

I'll try to update the tool as soon as possible, right now I'm working on GT Track Viewer and I think I'm not very far from the first release at least I hope so, anyway after that I'll probably will work on RE3SLDE again but I can't promise anything, we'll see.

I decided to work again on this tool since I'm done with the other tools for now, anyway I need  RE3 saves from all stages I would play the whole game to make those saves by my self but for some reason game crash somewhere in RPD probably because I run the game from extracted ROFS##.DAT so I would appreciate if someone could upload those saves at least from stage2.

Greetings

Post by: Leo2236 on September 30, 2014, 02:52:08 am
Thanks Dominic but just now I played game from ROFS##.DAT instead of extracting them and the game didn't crash so now I have save from STAGE 2 which is enough to start working on supporting that stage, but still I'll probably will need saves from other stages soon, Now I can get saves from other stages (3, 4, 5, 6, 7) by my own since the game working that way but if you have some free time spend to get those saves go ahead that would help me I would spend spend saved time on tool rather playing game. I need saves for standard PC PAL version English :)

Edit1: Just have add support for STAGE 2  English version for now have test it with several rooms and it seems that it work. I guess now I'll work on STAGE 3 support. By the way it seems that I'll have to add support only for STAGES 1~5 cause it seems that the regular game use only those stages, and STAGES 6~7 used for mercenary mode I guess!?

Have applied sepia effect on BG and Mask.

Edit2: Have add support for STAGE 3 too, need more tests to be completely sure if it's will with all rooms in that stage though.

What? I've played the game until the end and saved on every stage!  So what happend there with my safefilles??  Maybe I've send you the wrong files I guess?!



I've  opend the game to check out the savefiles:


(http://666kb.com/i/cs9xihuedt5mlod80.jpg)



Edit2:

Leo in my Resi3 Directory I can just see those savefiles from yesterday midday.  Now I'm confused. Now it's 6:055 in the morning and I've played Resi3 again and saved in the factory again. But why can't I see that the savefile was modified?


(http://666kb.com/i/cs9yce8h7t99mm6sw.png)

so that u can see that I'm in the factory:


(http://666kb.com/i/cs9yhwtpkxwrp44q8.jpg)


So that's why u got these old savefiles where I'm on stage 2... But I was already in the last stage when I send u the files.

I hope u can help me to find these hidden savefiles

That what I see when I load your saves.
(http://i.imgur.com/fCybpJB.jpg)

Probably game use other saves files, open bio3.ini with notepad and check "Save" key it should show you path of saves that the game actually use. Those saves must be somewhere right?! :) By the way I still need those saves.

Ok Leo I've uploaded the safefiles again (but haven't checked if the safefiles are exactley these which I saved this morging.)

Here is the Link:   (And yes I saved  a big bunch of time because I would do it not always from beginning when I die in game)


http://www.mediafire.com/download/1uqtzt2j9i31i7l/Savefiles.7z


So when the files are the same like before then I really don't know what to do. I hab this problem never before. It's strange. 
Title: Re: RE3SLDE: A tool to edit SLD files...
Post by: Leo2236 on October 01, 2014, 01:47:23 pm
Sorry Dominic but the saves are exactly as before. Try to search you PC for bu00.sav and bu10.sav they must be somewhere on HDD(since you can load those saves in game) if you haven't done that already.
Title: Re: RE3SLDE: A tool to edit SLD files...
Post by: CraZyEddy2010 on October 01, 2014, 02:05:41 pm
Ok Leo I'll do it now!
Title: Re: RE3SLDE: A tool to edit SLD files...
Post by: Leo2236 on October 01, 2014, 02:15:35 pm
By the way what "Save" key bio3.ini says? You didn't mention ???

Post by: CraZyEddy2010 on October 01, 2014, 03:19:54 pm
Leo I really don't know whats wrong with this  ****!  I'm totally pissed off.  I found no other savefiles on the pc.  Guess what?  I took the savefiles cutted them off and pasted them in another folder. then startet the game and while I went on load Game and then it said "no load files"  So if I'm right it means that the files are the savefiles which I send to u?! This is so mysterious I can''t believe  this ****.  What do u think about it?
Title: Re: RE3SLDE: A tool to edit SLD files...
Post by: Leo2236 on October 01, 2014, 06:52:45 pm
Don't know what to think Dominic I never had that kind of issue not even heard of it before. I guess I'll have to play the game to the end after all. Hopefully I'll finish updating the tool within 1~2 day/s cause I'm already tired from this tool.
Title: Re: RE3SLDE: A tool to edit SLD files...
Post by: CraZyEddy2010 on October 01, 2014, 07:28:55 pm
I never used that tool before.  Why are you tired of this tool?  Is it boring maybe? 


Have u ever worked on Final Fantasy / Tomb Raider or Silent Hill Toos?

Yes it''s boring, it's much more interesting to create a new tools rather than updating them.

Have u ever worked on Final Fantasy / Tomb Raider or Silent Hill Toos?
I'm not interesting in Final Fantasy so I wouldn't even try to make anything for it without interest beside theres already plethora tools for the game as far as I know,  I was working on an level extractor/decompressor  for TR4 once this game also have already many tools. As about SH it's a game that I wanna to create tools for, have already experimented with levels a while ago, so theres a chance that I may start working on it maybe even soon.


The update is almost ready have add support for stages 4, 5 too, the tool should work fine with all rooms from supported stages even though I haven't test them all.
RE3SLDE v0.2b:

Edit: Have add support for stages 6 and 7 so now tool support all stages, download link on the first post.

Hello;

Dominic maybe your files had a save problem because you using other version. It's possible.
If you played the US version, for example and change to SPA EUR version, your game just read the savegames is the same of your executable. Maybe this happened with your savegame.

Leo I'm getting our Spanish executables [edited and untouched] and I'll send to you.

Best and congratz!

Sorry that I couldn't help you with the save files.
No problem Dominic, you tried and thank you for that! ;)

Leo I'm getting our Spanish executables [edited and untouched] and I'll send to you.
Thanks for the EXE's ;) 

I needed those EXE's to see differences between versions and add support for other EXE's too maybe, as about original Spanish EXE there's no rush when you will have it send it to me please.

By the way did tried the new version of RE3SLDE with you RERebeccasEscape EXE?

Also I forgot to mention that the tool now recognize automatically EXE's, it support original English version and the EXE from RERebeccasEscape that you've send me a while ago.

If I'm not mistake the tool should automatically recognize your EXE and do proper patching, but you'll have to try it to be a 100% sure ;)

Have update the tool a while ago for someone but forgot to upload it here, so here it's, the v0.8b support all stages(1~7) and support only those versions of the game (UK, USA, Xplosiv). It may not work at all with other version of RE3 than I've mention, for other version use older version of the tool   ;)
