Hello everyone. I'm the author of Commandos HD Project mod. What do you think about the remastered version of Commandos 2?

I think it's shit but it's a sign that Commandos is still alive.

 

It's time to mod, my friends!

 

We have to do our job and exploit the potential of this new remastered version.

- We need better Menu
- We need better Commandos faces (maybe with animations from Commandos 3?)
- We need to remove censorship

I have checked the game files and would like to share what I have found.

There is a BASE.PCK under StreamingAssets that contains files from the original game, including MIS and GSC scripts and Y64 map images.
Character animations (ABI), scene models (MBI) and sound files are missing, which are located in Unity asset bundles in StreamingAssets\aa\Windows\StandaloneWindows64 and in Unity formats (Unity textures, models and sound files). I have seen images from the big map, so I think Y64 may not be used any more.

PCK is in a new simple format and can be edited with my new tool PCKManagerHD.
Unity asset bundles can be viewed with AssetStudio(https://github.com/Perfare/AssetStudio) and edited with Unity Assets Bundle Extractor(https://github.com/DerPopo/UABE).

Congratulations R_ex. This is what I meant. Let's not lose heart. This is a new starting point for us.

Where can we find your tool?

The Gods have awakened, Stankan is back in the game, hooray. Welcome back, buddy, welcome back. Was too busy managing CBC to check the forums past few days. 

 

Literally was talking about asking you regarding the mod toolkit of yours, r_ex, with someone else on the Discord server. Good progress here as usual by everyone. :p :p

Dude, I really appreciate your work on HD project and enthusiasm in modding this crap remaster.

However, if you guys really made a mod that turn the remaster into original, you’ll no doubt make profit for Kaylpso, which they don’t deserve to earn.

And by the way, the work of modding this shit remaster to original is just more than the work Kaylpso did in my opinion. You really don’t have to suffer from it.

I’m not a saint like you, I’d like to see Kaylpso burn down to ash tbh. LOL

Ironic but true, @Imami_Ken. At this point it seems like modders would have to RE- remaster the game again. Hah.

Wrong place to ask technical support, @dukepapas. Use the Steam bugreport forums for communicating such issues with the publisher>developer.  Usually you need the latest graphic drivers, Unity can be true asshat :D Again, try to ask on the Steam forums: https://steamcommuni...10/discussions/

 

This topic aims to uncover the limitations and specifics to modding.

@SmayLee, this is not yet possible to do. We haven't even discovered if we really can modify the game and load loose files.

Any progress? People still hope someone will restore the censored symbols and I think that won't happen soon. Guess it's a dead end.

I made the first mod to Commandos HD Remastered files. I edited the briefing and cinematics file at the beginning and during the missions.

Every dialogue appears with a smaller and better zoom and without frenzy. Soon I will share something...

Hi there,

 

If you're still modding Commando II HD, you can use DevXUnity Repacker Tools which can extract and replace textures, sounds, videos in Assetbundles

Hi there,

 

I don't know if someone is working on it, but I started to remove censorship on submarine mission :

50% is done.
