Would anyone be able to explain how to use Sleepkiller's model-edit tool? The readme isn't very clear and it'd really help me out in using higher poly sides.

Hey!
Well, I use Sleepkiller's model edit tool for my side mods.
So, my explanation will be based on that.
Basically, you have to follow these steps:
1) Munge your side (REP for example)
2) Now go into REP/_BUILD_PC/Sides/REP
3) Copy your "munged" folder found there into your "model-edit" folder (For example: C:/model-edit or wherever your "model-edit" folder is located, so now your "model-edit" folder should contain 3 files: model-edit.exe, model-edit.exe.config and your "munged" folder)
4) Press Win+R, type "cmd" and press enter
5) Type "cd C:/model-edit" and press enter
6) Type "model-edit" and press enter
7) Type "model-edit munged 4" and press enter (Instead of 4 you can use any other factor varied from 1 to 8 )
8 ) Now delete your original "munged" folder located in your REP/_BUILD_PC/Sides/REP
9) Put your new "munged" folder from "model-edit" folder to REP/_BUILD_PC/Sides/REP
10) Back up your munge.bat found in REP/_BUILD_PC
11) Now right-click your munge.bat from REP/_BUILD_PC and press edit
12) Delete these lines:
"del /q Sides\%1\munged\*.*"
"modelmunge -sourcedir ..\Sides\%1 -platform pc -inputfile !*.msh -outputdir Sides\%1\munged\ -maxbones 16 -keep collision -continue -righthanded" and save it
13) Munge your side once again

That's all. You should get rid off low-res models now. Actually I think step 6 is unnecessary but still keep it for safety. If you want to do the same thing again, you just have to replace your munge.bat from REP/_BUILD_PC with the one you backed up and start from the step 1.

beware that units can slide if the value is set too high or if the view distance is tooo high or if there are too many units.

Also it's much more effective in BF2 than BF1.  BF1 it can help but the much lower limits of BF1 really don't give you much extra room to work with when using model-edit.

Thanks a lot man! I appreciate it! 👍

TimoCruz

For some reason the lines you said to delete in the munge.bat file aren't there, any idea why?

Reimus

Hmm.
Are you sure you are editing the munge.bat from "_Build_PC" folder of your side file

TimoCruz

Yeah I've no idea why it's not there for me

Reimus

I'll check this tomorrow.
Could you please tell me what other lines do you have there?

I guess I see the problem now.
This munge.bat is located in _BUILD_PC/Sides
Back up 2 files: "clean.bat" and "munge_side.bat"
Now, remove the clean.bat from that folder
Then edit munge_side. bat and delete this line:
"modelmunge -sourcedir ..\..\..\Sides\%1 -platformdir ..\..\..\_source_pc\Sides\%1 -platform pc -inputfile !*.msh -outputdir munged\ -checkdate -maxbones 16 -keep collision -continue -righthanded"
Munge your world. It should work now.
