.elu.ani is the most unused "animated cursor" file.

nobody (but maiet) knows what program they used to make .elu.ani files, maybe they made it themselves or it exists but we dont know the name for it....

till now nobody exept for maiet has ever opened .elu files >.>

u shoulda known that...

Elu.ani are the animations for the ELU files. ELU files are the packaging for the models, sorta like an MRS file. INSIDE the ELU files are the real models.

And yeah, Legion told me he did manage to unpack them, but he hasn't been able to make custom models yet.

No, the problem isn't laziness.

He told me he did get them to display in a model viewer, but that was as far as he got. The models are in fact MAIET's own, proprietary model format. And the maps are a weird form of BSP. So custom maps and models are still far off.

Yeah. He can get them to display, but can't edit them yet. I'm sure he'll figure out how though, he's a freaking genius.

Emm? If you can already open models in a 3d program then you can edit them too... just convert to editable poly <.< but you need to know what are the hardpoints for what?

Download GunZ Entropy.

I have been investigating how GunZ read ELU files, its call ALOT the MZip::Read function, i think it first read the file header and then its unpack all files inside ELU.

But im now busy with my own game to investigate the elu format, XD

It's rather easy to view them, MAIET used MAX for their files. Just unpack them. Making them is another story.

Can you give us a more exact name please? Searching MAX on google is somewhat pointless. Even with other key words ><

Ya. I learned how to open elu on 3D Max. Its editing them is the hard part. T6 is right. Legion will eventually find out ...
