general information

  • TRIG files are stored globally (in AE/AEInstaller/vanilla/level0_Final.dat)
  • TRIG files are intended to hold the rail geometry but <BaseGeometry> (M3GM) isn't used in sole BINACJBOTrigger import, the trigger rail is part of the AKEV level geometry
  • The xml code on this page is compatible with onisplit v0.9.61.0

embedded M3GM

export

You would need to cut TRIG instance so that only the M3GM and its connected instances remain and convert it to oni.

onisplit -extract:xml output_folder input_folder\TRIGfile.oni
onisplit -create output_folder input_folder\cutfile.xml

version hint:

onisplit v0.9.61.0 can extract M3GM only as obj
onisplit v0.9.41.0 can extract M3GM as obj or dae

Convert the M3GMfile.oni to obj:

onisplit -extract:obj output_folder input_folder\M3GMfile.oni


import

There are some tags which make together the mesh but you basically need to know that you can replace that content with data from another M3GM.

You can create M3GM meshes from obj files.

onisplit -create:m3gm output_folder -tex:trigger_tex input_folder/trigger.obj
-tex is optional
The TXMP file must created separately (if needed).

Then you can convert the file to xml and replace the TRIG's old M3GM xml code.

Remember to change the links (#N) and instance IDs of the new data.
