John what is SysWOW64. where is it located? and I found this folder called System32 what would happen if I delete it. can it be restored. sorry for the question by the way, I am a noob in these Music modding stuff

SysWOW64 is a folder in the Windows folder, you can get there by going into the C drive(C:\Windows)

System32 is an essential Microsoft Windows system directory that contains system files as well as program files that allow your OS and apps operate properly, if you delete the System32, multiple system errors will spring up and your Windows may even fail to boot properly and the only way it can be restore is by reinstalling the Windows OS, however by doing this, you will lose all your personal files and apps, which is not a desirable outcome(it's best not to do this)

Hi there, I've got a problem with texture inserting. It works fine on moded models (like KH2 Sora over Cloud or Fire Emblem Lyn over Lighting) but whenever I try to change the actual Dissidia character texture, face gets these strange artifacts/noise. What's even more interesting, it looks fine in Noesis so I don't know what I screwed up exactly. Here's an example

for "texture creation and editing" use the older version of Dissidia Modding Suite. the info is in "readme.txt" file: https://www.mediafire.com/file/e8ivkop7pyvl0ra/Dissidia_Modding_Suite_v_0.66_BETA.zip/file

to add any song to Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy you need to save the .mp3 as .wav with ATRAC3 132kbps, created .at3 from it then insert it into your .iso or use it to generate .edat version of it and move it to your dlc folder

http://www.mediafire.com/file/g2tatk09nrrgs6s/Dissidia_Duodecim_Music_Converter_Pack.zip/file

1. So first click on atrac3.exe within the ATRAC3 Codecs folder and install the .at3 codec

2. Once that is done, you need to click on gwave558.exe or gwave570.exe and install Goldwave

3. Launch the program and register offline(use the provided keygen to generate a license key)

4. Move atrac3.acm and atrac3.reg within the ATRAC3 Codecs folder into C:\Windows\SysWOW64 and Run the atrac3.reg, this will adding info to the registry for Goldwave to save .mp3 as .wav with ATRAC3 132kbps

5. Inside Goldwave click on "Open", search for the .mp3 you want use and double click it, now all you have to do is edit the .mp3 however you want in Goldwave then go to the "File" tab and click on "Save as", in "Save Sound As" file selector click on "Save as type" drop-down list and choose "Wave (*.wav)" then on "Attributes" drop-down list choose "ATRAC3 44. 100 kHz, Stereo" and click on "Save" to save .mp3 as .wav with ATRAC3 132kbps

6. Click on GWAT3.exe and drag & drop the .wav with ATRAC3 132kbps into GWAT3 and click on "Goldwave" to create .at3

7. Use Dissidia Modding Suite, UMDGen to insert the .at3 into your .iso or use ddff dlc toolkit to generate .edat version of the .at3 and move the generated .edat inside the ddff dlc toolkit dlc folder to your dlc folder(memstick\PSP\GAME\ULUS10566 or memstick\PSP\GAME\ULES01505 if you use the EUR version and memstick\PSP\GAME\NPJH50377 for the JPN version)

 

P.S if step 1-6 didn't work out for you, use this method instead

 

is it possible to convert .wav with ATRAC3 132kbps and .at3 back to .mp3 or others song file?

yes, it's possible to save it as .mp3 and another audio file format. but before convert it to another audio format especially .mp3, LAME MP3 Encoder must be installed into Goldwave. the encoder can be automatically install if you have an active Internet connection when you edit and save .mp3 in Goldwave, however due to a change in GoldWave Inc. web server the encoder installation is no longer available for 5.70 or older versions of GoldWave, so you have to install it manually. the encoder can be downloaded from here: https://www.videohelp.com/software/Lame-MP3/old-versions

to install the encoder in Goldwave, download "lame3.98.zip" and extract it using Winrar, copy "lame_enc.dll" and paste it into Goldwave location folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\GoldWave. now open Goldwave then drag and drop your .wav with ATRAC3 132kbps and .at3 into GoldWave, in Goldwave go to the "File" tab and click on "Save as", in "Save Sound As" file selector click on the two drop-down list, choose the desired file extension and attributes then click on "Save"

      hello everyone, sorry if I ask such a stupid question but I wanted to know if there is a way to mod the icons of the game such as icons in the gallery using the dissidia modding suite because with the classic method of the emulator the result is not the best. Thank you and have a good day.

      I want to make my own music mod, so I tried using the software known as Goldwave
      http://www.mediafire.com/file/u8q6xjirntdl051/gwave570.exe/file
      Atrac3 codec to make a wav with Atrac3 attributes file
      http://www.mediafire.com/file/n3e0axg2el5rblh/ATRAC3.zip/file
      GWAT3 to change the extension into .at3 in order to use it for making my own music mod
      http://www.mediafire.com/file/lj3ka5eizya8iqg/GWAT3.rar/file
      using this method
      http://www.mediafire.com/file/052a0yff882eao8/DLC_Listings.txt/file
      or using UMDGen
      https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/1218/
      http://www.mediafire.com/file/qzafqhg7twn22ei/UMDGen_.AT3_list.txt/file
      but when I try save the mp3 file in the .wav format, I don't see the Atrac3 attributes, I installed the atrac3 driver, restarted my computer then installed GoldWave, it still didn't work, I then tried it the other way around and it still didn't show. What should I do to solve this problem?

      This has been long overdue but I feel it's better late than never

      I'm just copy pasting what I told another member on how to mod,  So some stuff may not match

      Things you need before starting
      - Noesis
      - Milkshape 3d (Preferably version 1.8.5)
      - GMOTool
      - PNG2GIM
      - Notepad++
      - The character GMOs
       
      ---------------------------------------------------------
      Getting started

      Use Noesis to export the base character .gmo into .smd
      for example, if you're gonna use Lightning as a base, export her t-posed .gmo.

      Import the base model and the custom model in Milkshape.
      after importing the t-posed model, import the custom model you are gonna rig on. I'll be using Thanos and Exdeath as an example



      After that, go to tool > scale all (by %10000)





      Then delete the original model so that the custom model will be left



      Now, if you had any experience with rescaling, try to fit the model into the skeleton by rotating the vertices of his limbs and such
      And then you may proceed to rig the model.
      ---------------------------------------------------------
      Rigging
      I lost the file for Thanos so I'm gonna use Nero instead for the rest of the tutorial

      Anyway, to rig, you just need to select the vertices of the bone you want to rig on
      Like for example, select all the vertices of the head and then assign it to the head bone





      After rigging, you need to resize it back to the original size,



      You can test the model's rigging by importing the animations into it,
      preferably .psa if you're using Milkshape



      It takes a long while to load

      click the anim button at the bottom right to view the animation


       
      When you're satisfied with the result, export the model to .smd
      the uvs will be flipped like this 



      Now export it again to .fbx while flip uvs is checked



      ---------------------------------------------------------

      MDS Editing

      The final part of the tutorial is the .mds editing

      First you need to convert the .fbx to .mds using fbxconv



      Then the base .gmo to .mds using gmoconv



      Open both .mds in notepad++



      In your custom character's .mds, replace all of the "rootnode" with "root" and "png" with "gim"



      Go to your base character's .mds and go to model-0



      Below that, look for this bone (differs per character)



      then delete the blendoffset, blendbones, and drawpart, leaving behind only the ParentBone and Translate



      Do the same with the "wepx" bones (i.e. wep0, wep1, etc.) and the bones in model _000A

      Look for the trans_include bone inside model-0 and copy everything above it



      Then paste it over the trans_include bone inside your custom character's .mds





      Now go to the material section of your custom .mds and remove this bit from every material





      Now dont forget to convert your png textures to gim using png2gim
      you can only have 1 png at a time inside the folder or it wont convert properly



      Rename the new .gim to be the same as your png file

      After moving the .gims inside your GMOtool folder, use gmotool - to gmo 



      -s is a parameter to change the size of your model, (-s 0.8 means that the model size will be reduced by 80% and so on)

      Now you can try checking the .gmo in Noesis to see if the animations are properly working



      Please note your gmo size must not exceed 2.4mb
