It sure looks great, but I am sure historical accuracy is not on their table.

Hey all gods of HD2 modding :)

Thank you hdmaster for your involvement and efforts. Really appreciated that!

Any update on a importer/exporter plugin? :)

@betteryouthanme

I've seem some post above that you exported meshes back to the game? :)

Now hdmaster's 3ds Max plugin is already available, it's just incomplete.
But yes you can import and export 4ds models.

You can download it here.
(About installation, check the ReadMe file)

INFO
You will need 3ds Max 2013 or 2014 version.
Newer version have not been tested yet.

The plugin was only compiled for 64-bit versions. It does not run on 3ds Max 32-bit!

Wow! That's great! Going to check it out :)

Thanks betteryouthanme thup01

Tested on 3ds max 2014 64bit, working like a charm.
Tested on 3ds max 2016 64bit, not working

Edit:
Please forgive me for posting this here. ;) I was playing a little bit with importing and exporting .4ds from 3ds max.

First tried with kar98k, I've added teapot to the model - worked like a charm. Sorry no pic for that ;)-

Later on, tried to replace M1 Garand model with my M14 model just for test since they are quite similar.. anyway. I exported it to the game (pics at the bottom ;) )
Unfortunately exporter or I think it that it is, breaks a little bit UV on a model :(

Anyway, just wanted to share this with you.

M14 as M1 Garand #1
M14 as M1 Garand #2
De Lisle - added more geometry to the front sight #1

I know that i am late in the discussion, but i managed to import H&D 2 maps into 3ds Max 8 (except the Africa 1 and Czech 1 maps) using hdmaster's 4ds import plugin in 1.0 version provided by MCh2207Cz from Mod DB community.

I am also giving a 3ds Max 8 download link with the 4ds plugin to anyone that might be interested in using them: http://www.mediafire.com/file/0oqweojza ... n.rar/file

You need to use the keygen to activate the 3ds Max 8. Use this serial number: 666-12345678.

Place the plugin in your 3ds max/scripts folder. Before running the 4ds script in 3ds Max for the first time please check the readme.

The script allows also the import of other 4ds models. For testing purposes i imported a H&D 2 Sten gun into 3ds Max 8.

The textures on the imported Sten model are working, but i think that there is an UV mapping problem with them.

As for imported H&D 2 missions i didn't open them in HDD editor yet. I only imported the H&D 2 maps into 3ds Max 8.

You could check that for yourself NilsZ - i shared the download link for 3ds max 8 and 4ds plugin in my previous post.

I managed to open the Africa 1 and Czech 1 maps from H&D 2 in a software called Noesis. See pictures below.

It could be used also to import other H&D 2 .4ds models like weapons.

Here you have the download link for the Noesis program: http://www.mediafire.com/file/5eign02nx ... 5.rar/file

OK, i downloaded both programs, thanks jakub :D
I am now installing HD2 after it was laying more than 10 years in a box. The game somehow disappointed me, so i never took a look again on it.

I imported the H&D 2 Norway map into the HDD editor with its original size and textures.

I got a couple of errors, but beside that the map works OK.

You could see the minesweeper. I wonder, where the second ship is. Probably a separate model added later into the map.

See pictures below. :cool:
