Default Can someone fix this? :o

I found this dat mod and thought it was really really nice. Downloaded it, spent a while figuring out which .dat goes where, got it right eventually - so changed the gear i wanted and log on ffxi and... well, look for yourselves:

First is a pic of what it should look like, then a screenie of what it actually does look like in game, and then the .dat files themselves. Is there someone out there that can fix this and make it look alright ingame? I'd be eternally grateful.. <33333

Protip: This is a horrible port. There's your reason.

The original author of the DAT was not credited in the port, and that person was an NA. The porter was a JP. She gave no consent in the port and she was not even remotely mentioned in the port, so he is taking all the credit for it.

If you'd like to oblige, I'd suggest you ask somebody WITH PERMISSION to port the original Elvaan set to hume. Until then, I'm asking you to please delete it from this site.

Wow, sorry, i've never seen this mod before, i have no idea who made the original for elvaan F. Could you - or someone else - point me in the right direction as in give me a link to where the original was posted? Or tell me who made it? Then i can ask permission from the original author and post a new request.

No need to rip my throat out, i never meant to step on anyone's toes.. :cry:

I wasn't ripping your throat out, if I was I'd have commanded it, but I only asked, plus I actually said please!

The maker of it is Alikona on FFXIdats, she has an account here (Alikona69), but contacting her on FFXIdats is your best bet.

EDIT: I've been talkin to her most of today, and she says she's working on correcting the port.

/sigh

I really wasn't happy with this mod... even though the original textures come from L2 I spent a long time piecing them together and reconstructing parts of them. I really wanted it to be Elv F only because I made it for a friend. It's not an exact port of the mod I created for Elv F, basically they took my body/leg textures and applied them to the Hume F body/legs. The skirt that is on there is from another one of my Elv F mods >_> <_<

But meh.. what can ya do. That's the joys of sharing your work with others.

I am currently working on fixing the issues with this mod, there are several. Atm I'm adjusting the UV mapping so the textures fit a little nicer on the mesh. I'm not quite sure why the JP modder didn't change the skintone to the Hume F color.. but I will do that as well once I find some decent nude skins to work with.

As far as your issue with it not displaying properly ingame, I do believe that is a Hex error.. its like the textures are not being displayed at all. I'll see if I can find the problem.

Btw... Don't take anything Ferris said to you in the wrong way. He wasn't trying to be rude to you. We are friends and he knows how much hard work I put into my mod only to have it claimed by someone else.

I didn't know Ali-kins was here. :shock:

That said, even if it gets fixed, I will not change my view on the fact it's an abomination and will not use the humie version of it as such. Ali-kins went through a great deal of trouble putting it together for me and it sickens me she wasn't given even one grain of sand's worth of credit for all the texture reshaping she had to do.

At least Ali-kins gives credit where it's due from where she builds her stuff off of.

Hmmm well I have everything fixed except for the mysterious no textures ingame...

It's not a hex error, I looked and the values are all correct.

I do, however, have a few more theories as to whats making it do that...

1. The textures in the dat are named with JP symbols/characters... very possible that the NA version of FFXI cannot read these.

2. The textures are in jpg format for some odd reason. I didn't think VRS even allowed you to import jpgs for textures.. let alone save the dat afterwards.

Alikona, i'm really sorry someone "stole" your mod and never gave you any credit, i didnt know. I do visit ffxidats now and again, however i dont look at elvaan mods as i'm hume F.. So that would explain why i havent seen it before. I think the mod is very pretty, especially the body part - i wonder why some of it shows up correctly in game but not the whole thing? Also, it looks perfect in MV.. But i'm no modder, i know nothing about these things, i cant even get the programs to work on my pc. :?

x_X I was mad for a bit but meh... Nothing can really be done about it and it seems as though a lot of people are interested in it so, oh well.

Also I figured out what is causing it to be retardo ingame. Its because the modder changed the textures to jpg format o_O I'm not quite sure how he did that since I don't think VRS imports jpgs >_> <_< Maybe using another modding program we dunno about?!

But anyways I have the body/legs done just need to fix the gloves/feet.
