  1. Thanks alot man. How can you view the texture? It doesnt display texture for me unless I dump it and I dont have those options 1-512x512 2-256x256 etc. at all.
  2. I should have uploaded this http://imgur.com/a/h2cPe from the beginning, 040286_GonM is code from bladesoultool, weird you dont have it, its already availible in the na/eu client. 00013929.upk says bladesoultool but it looks like it dumps just the hair and the hat is somewhere else. I guess this is a database error in the bladesoultool Are there any other tools that can show me the texture upks without me having to dump all 'hat' texture upks and going through them one by one?
  3. Yes, you'd have to find out and identify which of the upk's are the ones that contain the chinese text and remove/ skip them while pasting. But you can always keep the whole 700mb seperately and just add each upk as you add each costume seperately, the updated databases by Ashllay already contain pictures and infos of the costumes.
  4. You're a seviour man, This should be made sticky on the top of the page. Alot of good threads get lost in time.
  5. So is this like a whole suit replacing a costume? Or is it all seperated for head, adornment, face etc.?
  6. Hi! Race: GonM Base : GonM 090011 (Naksun Bottle) Target : 50004_GonM col 1 I know this is attach--->costume. I'll edit the texture of the costume and remove all the things except the coat and the texture of the coat. Thanks!
  7. Is it possible to replace an adornment upk with a costume upk?
  8. Hi! I've uploaded all the CN (17.01.2017) upk's that are not in the US/EU client. The previous repository was not only impossible to navigate, it was also far from complete. WARNING If you simply copy/paste its gonna mess up your font and display all cc messages in chinese. WARNING http://www.mediafire.com/file/tag2n97cy2555cl/contents_Local_NCWEST_ENGLISH_CookedPC.7z goes to contents/Local/NCWEST/ENGLISH/CookedPC http://www.mediafire.com/file/m3ms5lcxutsrss5/contents_bns_CookedPC.7z goes to contents/bns/CookedPC If you download it please upload it somewhere else and post links. Enjoy!
  9. Guys am I missing something? The ui in the screenshot looks the same?
  10. You can try to "remove" the part by modding the texture. You need UPK Manager for that. Whether that is succesfull depends whether there is any texture under the hat. If there is hair texture under, then all you need to do is edit the hat texture out. That way the hat part will still be there only transparent not having any texture. If there isnt any texture under the hat you'd have to manually repaint or replace that part of the texture yourself.
  11. ...
  12. Could you replace these? im having trouble with proper texture. Race : GonM Base : 090011 To : 090134 Thanks!
  13. Thank you! Did you manually do it? Could you walk me through what you did to make it work? When i changed GonM to GonM_027 in the line above GonM_027_Physics it just crashed my client.
  14. I'm trying to replace GonM_027 to GonM_113 , I'm following Anivay's guide Regular Hair to Hair100 . I tried doing the files from the guide first to learn it but the strings in upks Anivay has are different to mine, even with the same upk's. I've renamed 00043646.upk to 00018539.upk and edited GonM_113_Physics to GonM_027_Physics at 0x348 this however doesnt display anything and the character is bald.
  15. I've downloaded the CN client and got the files. Modding the hair isnt going very well. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance
