Hi everyone, I was wondering if it's possible to convert UT2004 models to Half-life or Half-Life 2. If so, what program(s) would I need in order to do this?

    I believe Milkshape would do the trick, but you aren't allowed to upload them anywhere since it would be illegal.

    I see. I didn't have plans to upload them anywhere, so I won't if it's illegal.

    What if it was a custom UT2004 model, and not a default one? Would I have to contact the original maker of the model to upload it anywhere?

    Porting = illegal.

    illegal =/= good.

    /thread.

    So...it would be illegal to port the custom model to Half-Life, even if I did get permission from the original maker?

    You need permission to upload things that aren't yours. It would basically be like if someone borrowed your bike without asking. It's thievery in essentials.

    I don't want to upload it anywhere. I just want to port the model to half-life by myself without giving it away.

    If its a custom model, it isn't illegal on the basis that you have the owner permission to do so.

    As for actually porting it... I haven't got a clue. You should ask Modder Freak, he's the master of porting around here from what I remember.

    Finding the owner might be the hard part for me...

    But I'll ask Modder Freak if he is willing to port it.

    Here is how it goes. If you are using a default model. You can port to Half-Life 1 or 2. You cannot upload letting people download it. This is illegal.

    If you are using a custom model. You can port to Half-Life 1 or 2. You can upload letting people download it if IF you have the permission from the original author. But if you don't have the permission, it is illegal.

    We've established this already, but repeating things is good for accentuation and to drill it into this kid's skull.

    So high five for repeating things :D

    Well I just wanted to be certain about this. Especially since you said that it could be illegal.
