Topic: The Metal Sonic Model
Apologies if this thread is in the wrong category but I'm in need of assistance regarding the Metal Sonic model used in Sonic Xtreme.
For those who have explored the leaked Saturn SDK you would have noticed that there is a file called "MT_SONIC.SG3" which appears to contains the model/texture data for a Metal Sonic model. Comparing this screenshot:
To one of the screenshots of the Metal Sonic boss stage:
Clearly shows that the sample model was reused in Sonic Xtreme. For example, the eyes appear to be unfinished as he has no pupils.
Unfortunately, .SG3 seems like Sega's in-house format for Saturn related models. There are several programs in the SDK which I have tried to run via Windows 8SE through Virtual Box to see if I can view this format but unfortunately, I'm getting a "Cannot find Plugin-Module" alert message.
Has anyone, who has better 3D modelling format knowledge than I have, managed to open/import this format and convert the models in a more modern format? Or if anyone knows how to get the SDK programs functioning again it would be much appreciated!
