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 that you need to use the old version of Dissidia Modding Suite, the new one is for larger Model.GMO and Portrait.GIM insertion only

      I want to make my own music mod, so I tried using the software known as Goldwave and the Atrac3 codec to make a wav with Atrac3 attributes file and then use GWAT3 change the extension to .at3 in order to use it for making my own music mod, but unfortunately, 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

      I was wanted to put a request out to see if anyone has/can make a hitbox viewing hack for the game. And I figured this would be a good place to put such a request.
