Launch XRConvertersMain.exe from the command line.... Hope I didn't miss this, but how? I've loaded everything from what I can tell. Xcattools,Converter tool.... But how do I do a command line. So far if I double click on the XRConvertersMain.exe. a tiny black screen flickers and that's it.

Look up "Command Prompt" for Windows, there are tons of guides online. Nobody explained it because most modders already know what that means, but basically, you go old school & open up a terminal and run it from there. Short version is you search command prompt in the bottom left search box, open that, then start XRConvertersMain.exe in that window.

Hm, it always tells me I misswrote the command or it couldn't be found.

I've used the following command:

XRConvertersMain.exe importxmf "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\X4 Foundations\unpacked" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\X4 Foundations\unpacked\assets\environments\cluster\Cluster_01_data\anim_moon_v1-lod0.xmf"

Anyone got an idea what the problem might be?

Set path for XRConvertersMain.exe. and with importxmf command you should use xml file:
C:\Program Files (x86)\XRConverter\XRConvertersMain.exe importxmf "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\X4 Foundations\unpacked" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\X4 Foundations\unpacked\assets\environments\cluster\Cluster_01.xml"

Thank you this worked :) Now I have a Cluster_01.dae file. Let's see what's in it :D

The command did not produce any result for me. d: \ XRConverters \ XRConvertersMain.exe importxmf "d: \ modingX4 \ rabot2 \ titan \ assets \ units \ size_l" "d: \ modingX4 \ rabot2 \ titan \ assets \ units \ size_l \ ship_arg_xl_carrier_01.xml "

It should be like this:
d:\XRConverters\XRConvertersMain.exe importxmf "d:\modingX4\rabot2\titan" "d:\modingX4\rabot2\titan\assets\units\size_xl\ship_arg_xl_carrier_01.xml "
path to converter .exe, path to folder where game exported (where assets folder), path to .xml file and data folder with .xmf files, converter take path to data folder directly from .xml file so do not use size_l folder for ship_arg_xl_carrier_01.xml

I was able, thanks. I had an error. But the converter immediately exits as if I launched it through a double click.
The file is not created. d:\ModingX4\XRConverters\XRConvertersMain.exe importxmf "d:\ModingX4\Rabot\X4-F\assets\units\size_xl" "d:\ModingX4\Rabot\X4-F\assets\units\size_xl\ship_arg_xl_carrier_01.xml"

In your case X4-F folder should be as destination in second path:
d:\ModingX4\XRConverters\XRConvertersMain.exe importxmf "d:\ModingX4\Rabot\X4-F" "d:\ModingX4\Rabot\X4-F\assets\units\size_xl\ship_arg_xl_carrier_01.xml"
Converter works only from Command Prompt.

Ok, i uderstand, converter should find textures, you should extract folders: libraries and assets
and place them:
d:\ModingX4\Rabot\X4-F\libraries
d:\ModingX4\Rabot\X4-F\assets

Hi guys,

does the xac <-> dae converter actually work with X4 npc models? I converted a X4 npc xac body file to dae and exactly the same one back without touching it and my game crashes on loading up the the mod. What did work though was if I deleted the Armature modifier and converted everything back into xac. I mean you can´t practically use the output since there´s no rigging or skinning and you have only a wrongly scaled mesh flying under a npc´s head but the mesh got into the game. So all in all it seems to me that rigging is a problem for the converter. Did somebody else experience this or did I do something wrong.
