  • UT4 Converter - 0.9.1 - [25/08/2018]

    Name UT4 Converter
    Version 0.9.1 (25/08/2018)
    Author Me (XtremeXp/WinterIsComing)
    Status Discontinued
    Description Helps convertings any map from previous unreal / unreal tournament games to UT4
    Download UT4-Converter-0.9.1
    Requirements
    • Windows 7 / Vista / 8 / 10 - 64 bits
    • Java 8 SE
    • Unreal (Tournament) previous game with latest patch
    • NConvert texture conversion program
    • UModel















    Old UT3 Converter topic: https://forums.epicgames.com/threads/588848

    Note:
    For unreal 1, use latest patch from www.oldunreal.com


    Known bugs / limitations :
    • [UT99] Custom textures are not being converted
    • [UT2003/4, UT3] Staticmesh conversion does not keep original collision volume
    • [U2] Unreal 2 conversion barely tested so many things might not work properly
    • [U1/UT99] Rotated textures with PanU/V set are not correctly aligned
    • [UT2003/4, UT3] Shaders not yet converted so many surfaces/staticmeshes may not be textured
    • [UT2003/4, UT3] Terrain partially converted for UT2003/4. No terrain conversion yet for UT3.
    • Flag bases/Teleporters do not import correctly if you do not have loaded previously a map (like CTF-Face)containing these actors Note: no need to re-load again a map once they have been correctly imported at each new UE4 Editor start.

    The project is now discontinued. UT4 is for me now a dead/abandoned game walking on the agony path like UT3 did. I no longer have the will to continue working on the converter and i'm focused on other projects/stuff in life now.
    Best regards.

    History:
    - 0.9.1 - 25/08/2018
    • Hotfix: fixed some unconverted resources.

    - 0.9.0 - 19/08/2018
    • added support for UDK maps (conversion quality is like UT3 = medium)
    • u1/ut99: default scale is now 2.5X
    • u1/ut99: decreased light intensity from 60 to 35
    • ut2003/4: decreased light intensity from 80 to 70
    • ut2003/4: fixed staticmeshes skins not being correctly applied
    • ut2003/4: handled uv2Mode, uv2Skin (thanks MoxNix for reporting)
    • ut2003/4/ut3: fixed some cases where some textures from staticmeshes where not converted
    • ut2003/4: added support for LadderVolume, PressureVolume, SnipingVolue, ConvoyPhysicsVolume, xFallingVolume, IonCannonKillVolume,
      HitScanBlockingVolume, ASCriticalObjectiveVolume, LeavingBattleFieldVolume, xFallingVolume
    • ut2003/4: VolumeTrigger, MessageTrigger, CrowdTrigger, UseTrigger, MusicTrigger, RedirectionTrigger,
      GravityTrigger, MaterialTrigger, TriggeredCondition, ScriptedTrigger now converted to TriggerVolume
    • ut2003/4: fixed lift actor property in lift exit actor not being set
    • ut2003/4: added support for multiple skins (corona) with lights
    • all: fixed some teamplayerstarts being converted as playerstart
    • all: fixed crash on UT4 editor import if trigger had either radius or height set to 0
    • unreal 2: fixed no staticmeshes or textures being converted. Since umodel does not support the game
      the conversion quality of resources is not good yet (staticmeshes with bad roration and uv)
    • unreal 2: added support for Trigger TT_USE case
    • all: movers forced to movetime=0.1s if their movetime is 0s (else won't move at all)
    • all: tag property now being converted
    • all: brushes/movers with flat horizontal shape are now being converted back (need convert them to staticmeshes
      prior fisrt build)
    • ut3: now no longer loads lightmap when extracting textures from packages (=quicker conversion)
    • ui: updated welcome screen
    • u1/ut99: fixed mover using default sound if no sound was set originally
    • ui: added option for lightmap resolution (default 128 for UE1/UE2 else 32)
    • ui: progress bar now being update more often
    • ui: remove notification of unconverted actors

    Gamerz31w, That sounds like a wonderful idea.
    Personally, I also stopped caring about UE4 a while ago, because it's starting to look a lot like Unity and doesn't support it's own PSK format anymore.
    Even though I prefer UE3 over UE4, Still I'm excited to see what your project beholds.

    ШιητεЯΙsСσmιηɡ, since you abandoned the UT4 Converter, would it be easier to start working on your UT3 Converter again?
    That lifts one very complex engine from your shoulders, because UE4 is an entirely different engine anyway.
    I'm sure a lot of people will care once you continue that project with UDK compatibility under the name UDK Converter, However that's just a suggestion.

    But if you are indeed retiring from this, I'd really like to welcome Gamerz31w to the development of UT4 conversion.

    Thank you for your support and I wish you both success!

    If this tool was,is and will be abandoned for a very long time and period probably never gonna be updated in the future. I heard soon Epic Games will add modding support(according to Epic Games Trello Roadmap) probably for Fortnite Battle Royale in that case do you have plans for new tool which I named FBRXConverter which might replace UT4XConverter in the future.

    Dear ШιητεЯΙsСσmιηɡ,

    Too bad UT4Converter has been cancelled, I really hoped to see the this converter reach milestone 1.0 since you already implemented so much functionality in your converter
    I thought that it's better to finish this project for once and for all, but it's more important to move on to your next project.

    I always look out to the projects of high quality developers like you.
    I want to wish you Good Luck with what you're doing right now!

    Sincerely,

    Kevin Crans

    I would like to second this.

    Hi again

    4th Post Smoothing issues

    For a nice mesh rendering, there is a need to smooth the meshes through fbx export (only way I tested).
    Unfortunately, Blender as well as the free Autodesk fbx converter does not allow "smooth groups". The only way to have the smoothing was to use 3DSmax.

    Updated: nov2018:
    Possible to export smooth groups with blender:
    Cheers Dan
    Right is smoothed Right is smoothed

    Hi again
    3rd post UV issue

    When using the .obj files from UT-converter, it was necessary to add a CoordTexture node on all TextureSample nodes with U = 1 and V = -1.
    Could not be solved yet (from me) using 3D application like blender using axis mapping of the fbx exporter.

    Converting .pskx files from direct umodel extraction, the fbx converter will produce the right UV mapping.

    see you Dan

    Hi everybody
    Just some results from the Deck conversion and some issues.
    1 post: Overall conversion look
    A lot of work on the materials (as suggested by Mitch)
    Overall mood nedd a strong modification (light building is highly time consuming)

    best
