Have no idea too, maybe has something to do with copyrights? Not sure. :sc5vio1:
Well I mean yea, but smash bros is modded up the ass and nintendo is really tight with that. I know it has to do with the engine. I just dont fully understand why one engine is harder to hack than another.

Because it's a Japanese old brand? We all know they have different OS systems. chips and stuff in their devices and the old nintendo is not an exception of that imo.

Hello

(I'm bad at English, this post is done with google translate)

I started, really not long ago, to be interested in modding on soulcalibur 3, I have a problem, I cannot find the 3D models of the created characters (I know that the original soulcalibur characters (example : Talim) being well indicated in the file7.olk)
my project is:
since we cannot import a model outside soulcalibur, I intend to replace the original characters with characters created with the soulcalibur creator itself

Decided to hop back into this, and me using the VXT Editor for something like 05 - 205 Lost Cathedral i cannot open the bundle, returning an error code with the following code:

``System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection.

the same issue occurs with trying to export anything that is weapon related as well. Stage import with the max plugin does not work as well wich crashes3dsMax (not so much a 'bug' for here but good for notation)

Anyone have any idea how to respolve this?

And here's one more find. Once extracted, the files found in MOVIE.AFS can be played and converted to a more standard video format with VirtualDub.
Also, the opening movie and a few other movies must be stretched to 16:9 manually.

These movies use the Sofdec format.

I had known about this but, you know, did not document anything regarding them.
Thanks a lot for doing this. More documentation is certainly important.

No problem!
By the way, is it possible to change the color of Inferno's fire with a hex editor? It is supposed to be orange, but when imported to the PS2 version, it looks green.

Yes. That is how I did it in the earlier days. But there is a flag in Will O's data which determines the flame color that I am yet to find. That would be a better solution. But for now, just find the flame palette (16 of the same color), set the green flag to 0x00 and set the red bits to 0xA0 and the blue bits to 0x50. That should do the trick.

Cont. Replacing Will O's model with Inferno's will retain Will O's flames rather than Inferno's.

Cont again. Look at my SC3: AE version to see how I have done it with the Will O' swap.

By the way, I kind of believe that some of the data we're looking for, like flame color for Inferno/Will-O'-The-Wisp, weapon trail color, weapon size, lifebars format and possibly other stuff is stored in the game's executable. After all, that's where the character names are stored.

But since there's a lot of stuff in there, good luck finding it...
