  1. Sorry when they removed the mods section i moved eveything to youtube I updated the links again I will not take care of any requests at the moment because i have no time. I will only visit the forums arround once per week and mainly checking inbox.
  2. Thanks. This is exactly what i was looking for. Statusreport, short and painless. Also i'm happy about the server location for eu since it is not even 200km away :embarrassed:
  3. Sure i don't mind. But please leave a reference to this topic there then and post my original download links (don't upload the files on another spot please). http://www.mediafire.com/download/qr2lcdyrg4oplo1/00028999.upk I hope it works and doesn't look strange. I couldn't see any change in umodel but i certainly removed it via the alpha channel. As you know i don't have client to test it. I'm not sure if i am allowed to share the address, but you wouldn't be able to do anything since you need personal password.
  4. can you describe detailed what you mean with "frails". When i try to translate that it makes no sense. About the tool, it is from sippey (chinese guy) and the access is remote only. You upload the files and his webserver will patch them. It's not like you can duplicate it. I didn't talk to sippey since for arround a year. And BNS doesn't offer big room for modding because there is (as far as i know) know way to change meshes so overhauls and color rehashes is the best you can do. Or making stuff transparent.
  5. upk files from BNS have a custom encryption and i only one tool that is able to repack textures back into upk files, wich has ever been released for public. For more information look here: You can send the textures and i can repack them or ask sippey if he gives you access for the tool. But once he said he is only sharing with other developers.
  6. sorry but there are some issues. first thing is the mess in all textures arround the butt / pants. It appears kinda unfinished (it's not like you would normally see it with the skirt covering it) and would require extensive corrections. As well as there is gap in the mesh there so even if i would fix the textures it would look awful. I have no possibility to fix meshes.
  7. I have no client. you need to upload the 3 upk files for me i look at it
  8. Guess I better search on duowan i'll see what I can find they got way too many tools. *in chinese x.x*

  9. ...[is it possible to change any character to any animation in the game?]

    possible yes but i don't know how. Whenever i tried it i ended up wih garbage.

  10. Mila, is it possible to change any character to any animation in the game? It's been on my mind for a while just don't know anyone to ask this but you if so i'm so gonna try it for my photos.

  11. Gotta get more games on it don't just buy a console for 1 game .-. Iv seen the new Smashes but idk....I don't don't feel the melee side of it like I did on the 64/gamecube days, even brawl was a sad game for me.

  12. they look all ok but well, not going to play any game with such a pad ping and asian language.

    I'm ok with smash brothers, i only bought a wii u for that game.

    I have something +300h gameplay now and still love it

  13. i'm busy lately but when i have time i play super smash bros.

    (bought a wii u)

    This game is totaly worth it. It has insane amount of content, game modes and something arround 50 characters or so.

    Else i don't know.

    I saw at youtube:

    https://www.youtube.com/w...

  14. So what else games you playing now? When I get my new Desktop this month *if I get...working hard for it* I'm gonna try Black Dragon and FF 15 if it's good.
