Aw yeah, thanks a bunch . I'm going to find an image editor ASAP that supports DDS.
Also, does anyone know how to swap ingame unlockable music? (Like if I wanted to replace Right There Ride On for its Blazy remix one?) And is it possible to swap musics such as the stage clear music? And perhaps even Sonic's voice clips?
I've been doing music swaps for quite a while now. I'd show you how it's done, but I removed the links to the files and programs needed (In an attempt to improve the instructions.) Then again, all it really contained was related to the creation of AAX song files...
But to help you a bit, the unlockable songs are stored in SNG22_ADD.cpk, and the stage clear songs are in SNG19_JNG.cpk.
You can listen to them using any media player that supports the VGMstream plugin (such as winamp.)
Until I re-release all of my download links, you'll have to ask someone to make the AAX files for you (probably me at this rate.)
Sonic's voice clips would be a bit harder to work with, but since BoomBoomFP seems to have gotten it working with his new Silver mod, you should ask him about it.
At least your working with somebody to actually put some effort into a character hack. some of these are just name changing some files and calling it a day.
Now that you know that it may be possible to make custom animations, are you or your partner going to attempt it?
What? I don't have a partner. The only "collaborating" I've ever done is giving a few tips, and receiving a few tips.
I was just saying that I'm not the only one putting "effort" into these model swaps, and giving an example of someone who has put MORE effort into their work than I have.
As for the possibility of editing animations, I'm playing around with the tools to figure out how it all works. Or at the very least have a way to import the animations into 3DS Max without needing to go through a complicated file conversion process that is a bit glitchy at times.
Until I can figure out a way to fix Classic Sonic's eyes and quills into the super positions, here's a texture edit I made just for fun.
I made a "Super" form of sorts for Metal Sonic. The color scheme is a combination of Metal Sonic Kai (Knuckles Chaotix final boss), and the "inverted" colors he had during his electrical attacks in Sonic CD.
And yes, I made the text say "Hyper" Metal Sonic. Think about it, and you'll understand why I did it.
