  1. One Click Costume Replacement Mod Tool

    Hey guys. Actually there is a command "build" which would process all the steps in one execution. You could find all commands usable in file https://github.com/agreatfool/BladeSoulTool/blob/master/Gruntfile.js. Find them at the bottom of the file. Just like: But it's not recommended, you'd better process one by one to confirm the results.

    I saw your pic, it shall be ok.... strange... Got it, I walked through the error log, this skeleton is filtered since the model info does not follow the normal pattern line 3: "Loading Material3 JinSuYoun_mat2 from package 00008334.upk" Real skeleton name is line 6: "Loading SkeletalMesh3 65013_KunN from package 00008334.upk" I could add a rule for it.
  6. One Click Costume Replacement Mod Tool

    And what's the issue you encountered? Or what the error message software gave you? What's that? :surrender: What is the "Jin Seo Yeon"?
  7. One Click Costume Replacement Mod Tool

    Just create a txt file, name it to "backup.json", and put it under "config" folder.
  8. One Click Costume Replacement Mod Tool

    Just delete all the log files, it affects nothing.
  9. One Click Costume Replacement Mod Tool

    Read more carefully about the step of "install.bat", it shall be the installation issue. Cool! It's an amazing magic to implement such a functionality just using excel & vba script! Thank you for the sharing~ :big_smile:
  10. One Click Costume Replacement Mod Tool

    There is no any magic in the code, haha~ The theory is very simple. I just used one tool: UE Viewer. I use one command of it: "dump", like "umodel.exe -dump -path=pathtogameupks -game=bns upkId". Use UE Viewer I dumped all objects info in all upks in the client into files. You can view the log files under "database/upk/log/*". The next step is to go through all the upk log files, recognize who is skeleton, who is material, who is texture and all the col info in the materials and also the relationship between skeleton & material & texture. That's all. If you really interested, maybe you can go through the code "src/upk/bst_upk_parser.js". All the logics is there. My fault, actually it's a bug. You can open the file "config/setting.json" with software like notepad++ or some other software who can recognize linux like line break. Dont't open it with windows notepad.exe. Edit the path of "path.game" like "Y:\\Games\\腾讯游戏\\剑灵_腾讯". Note, there shall be twice "\" in path. Edit it ans save it, done. As I wrote in my post, it's the conflict message from the client to inform you that you have several upk files with the same name. Just ignore it, it won't block your game. I uploaded it to mediafire, it shall work for you. http://www.mediafire.com/download/y7zhci7oywhebyi/BladeSoulTool_v2.0.1.zip
