All, I was finally able to find a DFF import/export script that was able to handle the Viper Defender DFF file... I exported it to OBJ and C4D

RE: [VEHICLE] Viper Series Mod for GTA 5
What's up guys... Total newb here, first post, actually.
I know I helped at least one of the members (don't remember if it was 5dmc1 or not) of the original Viper Mod Team back in the day. I had sent a limited number of high-def effects clips and mp3's of the score. I never actually installed the Viper Mod, but always wanted to do it. Never had a copy of GTA:SA for PC...
Anyways, I'm here to help. I'm the webmaster of Project Viper, since it's inception in '97, so I have a good bit of media that may be useful for this project. I was also Joe Nipote's webmaster from '99-'12 where I gained access to lots of material (pretty much all of which has since been uploaded to YouTube). Plus, Jay Ferguson sent me a double disc of '96-'99 soundtrack files about 15 years ago, some of which I sent to the original mod team. Unfortunately, some of those tracks skip and I haven't been able to re-rip those tracks from the old cd's successfully yet. Most of them are good to go, though. I also have a bunch of the sound effects (weapons, buttons, computer, Viper engine idle/revving, Viper tire squeals and Probe hovering/maneuvering) used mostly in seasons 2-4. Unfortunately, there were no full "morph" sounds in these files (at least from Paramount). I believe there were partial bits that make up the morph, but not sure if there is enough to make the full morph sounds in high-def.
I am willing to help in whatever capacity I can. Please reach out to me via PM or email and let me know.
On a side note, I've always wanted a good, useable 3D model of the Defender to use for my website, but every one I found just wasn't quite rightly proportioned, in my opinion. (Some were WAY outta whack! No offense to the modellers...) ErikF made a pretty respectable one, but his files were sacred (I wouldn't blame him) and then there's the one (or more) who modeled the original Viper Mod Team Defender that evolved over time and looks pretty bang on! Where can I find that one? I can give attribution on my website, of course.
On an additional side note, there is a YouTuber, Yellow Elephant, who had some pretty nice videos of a private mod with the morph featured in different states, a pulsar supercharger simulator and a pretty nicely scaled Probe! I don't remember seeing those on the TMCC 2.0 videos. It's very impressive stuff. I hope I don't ask too many questions getting this upcoming mod installed on my laptop. After I buy GTA 5, of course.
PS: SUPER excited that the DVD is launching in just over a couple weeks! It's about time, too!
