RE3SLDE: A tool to edit SLD files...
« 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:




Now I waiting other stages and sure the RE3Spanish.exe version to edit our Rebecca's Escape project.
Best;

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.

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:






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?




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





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.


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.
