Default .mot (motion) file help!!!

Is there a different kind of prog to convert .mot files to .dat (stupid question). yes i do use winrar as far as all other dats that work but is there anything in particular about .mot? I've tried to use some of the motions in Mithra Provoke site and it doesn't want to work with .mot.

Ofcourse it's "useful" in the FFXI context. MOT files are, in this case, motion files used to store animations that you can load in VRS.

For you to use the files in FFXI you will need to import them to VRS first and then export the animation to a FFXI DAT corresponding to the player character or NPC you want to modify.
Basicly, it's a smaller way of distributing animations.

Carmilla, the guy (or girl?) at Mithra Provoke uses this way to distribute animations. In his site you have an english version of his tutorial for handling his mot files called "What is mot files?". It's not in perfect english, but he took the time and effort to make the text and screens in english for us foreign visitors, so give it a try.

Apart from that, i posted who knows where in this forum a step by step of how to do it too, but his tutorial is clear enough.

I mastered the tutorial he put there in about 5 minutes. It's not hard, and I had no prior VRS experience.
