Default Hair Question/Help/Request

There's a project that I'd like to do reguarding the F-1 Hume Female hair ported over to mithra. I'd like to do this, but I'm not 100% sure how. On another note, I've seen the F-2 done, but the hair doesn't move at all. I'm not exactually sure (prolly done through wieghted properties) how this is accomplished, but I'd like to do F-1 with the hair movement for mithra.

If anyone could help me with this I thank you muchly. Or if anyone would like to do this for me you'll be my hero forever. ^^

Thanks for listening again guys. :P

Porting is a strickly VRS based operation. Its quite simple if you follow Wenrick's tutorial at http://neko-sentai.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4452, its just setting the weights which will take you a while.

Thanks for the tutorials. It makes VRS look a LOT easier than what I've read.

However, I'm new to the program and I'm having a bit of an issue.

From my program I can't really seem to access any of the FFXI .dats.

How come I can't import anything?

Do you a *.scn file open (usually whitepaper.scn)

if you do and still don't have the tools available.. Go back to credes and download their DX9.0c version they have hosted, install that and try again.

The most common problem is getting the correct DirectX installed. Once installed and working correctly, my tutorials should help.

Also, one of the reasons direct ports aren't easy is because each race has different skeleton pieces, and they vary. An example be Skeleton-72 for Hume Female might not be the same Skeleton-72 for Elvaan Female. If the skeletons were standardized and uniform, porting would be a snap.

Off the top of my head, I know for sure the Hume Females have an extra skeleton for their ponytail. Granted, not all the HF faces have a ponytail, but the skeleton is there for the use of all HF. Sadly, Mithra do not have that skeleton hanging down the back of their heads (but they do have quite a few skeleton pieces that no other race has; namely, their tail). The difference in skeletons makes it so that no matter how hard you try, you will never be able to get the Mithra hair exactly like the Hume Female hair.

Once again, I am the bearer of bad news. I hate it when that happens.

Aweee Wenny that's okay. ^^ I'm glad you were able to tell me this a head of time before I could get deep into the project (and probably very frustrated XD). Also the tutorials from what I watched this evening were absolutely superb. VRS has gone from no go to lets go for me. Now I suppose I can really get deep into data modding.

Thanks again to everyone who helped. You all are angels ^^
