Would you be able to release that bayonetta mod?  It looked amazing.

Man does time fly. Not sure how active the community is anymore, but I recently started going through Dissidia 012 stuff again and figured I would check up on things here. :3

Not sure if I'll throw myself back into modding, but I will be working with the files again \o/

(Not to mention there's still several mods I still need to put out there :v )

Deraj8, your Sora Bartz model, I went looking into the MDS of it, but how did you make one meshX holding 2 different textures? I was never able to make it work

ah yeah that was a weird one, i had a few things like bartz's head on the p_XXX### bone, while the body was on the cape mesh parts (look at bartz's original GMO. So i'm actually changing the model of the "cape" when her goes to Ex-mode, but it looks like i'm only changing textures. At least that's what I remember doing lol

I meant that when I looked, the Bartz body and the Sora's crown necklace were both in one meshX, even though they were from 2 different textures. I usually end up with them being 2 separate meshXs unless I do some UV editing to stick them both into one texture.

You mean the materials? The parts that I made it with were as follows (just so I can reference them more easily):

p_fiv000 - includes the Bartz body and the necklace. They were exported out as one mesh, but have two material ids and thus two textures. (assets/textures/FMChain AND assets/textures/diss_00)

wep0 - same as default Bartz

wep1 - same as default Bartz

wep10 - same as default Bartz

wep11 - same as default Bartz

wep12 - same as default Bartz

wep13 - same as default Bartz

wep14 - same as default Bartz

wep15 - same as default Bartz

wep16 - The first Sora body, goes over Bartz's standard cape in his default

wep17 - The Second Sora body, goes over Bartz's Ex-mode cape in his default

wep18 - The Crown from Sora, goes over Bartz's Stars.

wep2 - same as default Bartz

wep3 - same as default Bartz

wep4 - same as default Bartz

wep5 - same as default Bartz

wep6 - same as default Bartz

wep7 - Kingdom Key, goes over Bartz's Brave Blade

^This is how the MDS file appears for me when I look through the HexCode. so the mesh p_fiv100 does indeed have both the Bartz body and the necklace, but I'm confused as to what you mean. A mesh can have more than one material assignment (texture), like Yuna whose default hair is placed in two separate texture files while still being apart of the same mesh entry.

As for the separate textures, may I know what modeling program you use? Sometimes the program you use may do particular things or merge parts once you export. I, myself, have never had an issue with having separate textures on one model, if I ever do that for a mod then it's more for size sake and nothing else.

If you want to see what I mean yourself, open Yuna's default model in Noesis and open the Data Viewer (Tools>Data Viewer). Expand Model 1, then expand Meshes. Yuna has two mesh entries in her data: p_ten110 and wep0. However, you will notice four entries in the Data Viewer. Noesis separates them based on material, and clicking on them will allow you to see the affected parts. 

I hope some of this is useful >.<

I've been using Milkshape 3D. Zerox's tutorial is to export as psk, then use noesis to convert to FBX, before converting to MDS. The Blendbones and BlendOffset seems to be the key, but I dunno how they work.

My process is a little different. First, make sure you have your mesh in "groups" in milkshape (ex: diss_00.png and diss_01.png), then I export that into an SMD file. Then in noesis, I convert it to FBX (since this FBX never works for me I do something stupid). Then I take the FBX and convert it back to an SMD but with reversed UVs. Then I take that model into Fragmotion (which flips the UVs back), and export from there back into an FBX. Then I convert to MDS, and copy the blendbone (from "Blendbones" all the way to the unit before the next bone) data onto the correct bone (for bartz, his base body is p_fiv100), and the mesh data into the mesh data for the corresponding bone (p_fiv100). Aside from copying the material and texture data, this is all I change to convert my models.

Is this helpful?

this is the first time i've seen using hex editing to edit .mds
thanks, i'll try to study your method

yeah i do quite a bit in hex editing with what i know, like the Tifa alt1 cutscene models

The model in the vid, i go over in the model and highlight what each mat is attached to. The model you see is ONE model with THREE textures attached to it. The singular model is using multiple textures, it is NOT three meshes. In the image attached, the highlight portion is still part of the model, it's just highlighting one texture. If this is not what you are talking about, please let me know, because I am confused then \o/

Deraj, do you remember how to disable Tidus's bubbles?

I believe that's in the player controller. not sure which byte directly, but if I compared the shuyin mod to the base model's it should be easy to figure out (i think). I don't think my shuyin (or KH tidus) mod is using the bubbles, is it?

      Hi, Dissidia Community!
      Well, I'm new to this, but I'll try to explain myself as best I can.
      Several months ago, I started a project, a mod for Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep which replaced the textures, not only of Aqua, but of all the characters. These textures were fanmade versions of what might be Norted versions of the Kingdom Hearts characters.
      With the exception of Terranort, Ventusnort and Aquanort were editions that I did with Photoshop. Aquanort was then based on a version that someone did for XNA Lara.
      Time passed and the Tokyo Game Show arrived, where the Aquanort outfit was finally shown. Since then, I decided to change the textures again, resulting in an improved version. The previous texture was simply an "alternative" version.
      Despite having achieved what I set out to do at the beginning, I felt that I still wanted a lot more.
      It is not the first time that I am interested in Dissidia 012. Previously I shuffled this possibility, the possibility of creating a mod for Dissidia 012. However, I was not interested in reimporting a texture in a mod that already exists in Aqua. I wanted to import my model, which is the PS3 version of Kingdom Hearts II.5 ReMIX.
      I have made my attempts, but I have not succeeded. The tutorials that show on YouTube are all painful and never explain them well, besides being super old (And the quality is from those times).
      If someone could make this mod reality, it would be quite perfect. I would provide the texture (for private). I think I can link the 3D model here.
      Or if someone can share with me some good video tutorial to be able to do it by myself.
      PS: I have seen that someone intended to do the same. Do not be alarmed, because the author of the video shown in the other post had the idea thanks to me.

      Got all my stuff deleted from MEGA, so it'll take time, but I'll keep adding stuff when I upload it to MediaFire.
       
      DLC Slots
      You need a DLC floder (You google that), my slots and the mod's GMO/GIM files (I think the base model I used were manikins) 
      You have all the names in the list sheet. Use as follows:

      I'll be uploading the ones I liked the most, I made too many to upload ~.~ Also, images went missing too, so I'll be using YT videos from other people.

      I would like to post an inquiry for information on modifying the data value for character costumes in replays.
      The only character model modifications that work online are reskins. This would help out those who want to use more advanced character mods such as those that add or subtract from the original polygonal count of the original 3 costumes or skins that fit in the reskin DLC slot.

      Hi everyone! I'm kind of new to modding and am trying to take a stab at modifying meshes. I'm testing things out on the Yuna Gunner DLC, and I get this weird texture problem that briefly changes whenever Yuna's blinking facial animation is supposed to happen.

      It also affects her staff (you can kiiiinda see it in the picture), and her knees/calves as well.
      If I remove the facial animations altogether, the glitches dont show up at all, so I'm sure it has to do with the facial anims. Any idea on how to fix this?
      Thanks!!
