Nightfire MDL format documentation

Post by x6herbius » 4 weeks ago

Hi all,

I was wondering whether there is still any information on the Nightfire MDL format actually available? I'm looking into GoldSrc modding and wanted to see whether I could load models of that format, without having to decompile and convert them explicitly to the GoldSrc format.

I know that, back in the day, the NFBSP wiki had a research page on the v14 format, but the Wayback Machine only seems to have archived the main page and a few of its links. The v14 page is not accessible from there; however, via the archived 009 site's external links I was able to get to the original NFBSP site, and found an incomplete spec of the format by FordGT90Concept.

I gather that, since an MDL decompiler/converter did come to fruition back in the day, you guys worked out the format more or less completely? Is the full v14 spec available anywhere?

Thanks.


Ignacio

Awesome, thanks - though the v14 spec on those pages was the one I was able to get to through the web archives. Is that the newest document we have? If so I guess I'll run with it.
