Rebirth Flame v1.2Final Fantasy VIII mod dedicated to replacing the current character textures. (Steam Only)
This mod was originally on Shunsq's BerryMapper topic and also part of Mortael's Project Lionheart. All credit should really go to those projects since they were the starting points. I've simply helped expand upon them. Now due to the increasing size, the mod has been moved to this thread. This will make it much easier for people to help contribute, point out errors, and just make things simpler overall for everyone. And please remember that this mod is still in Beta, so bugs are going to occur.
Now, as stated, the goal of this mod is to replace the main character's textures. And perhaps NPCs and lesser characters if we get that far.
As it stands, the character's replaced so far are Squall, Rinoa, Zell, Selphie, Quistis, Irvine, and Seifer. Though, some of the uniforms and Rinoa's party dress aren't completed yet. Laguna, Fujin, and Ultimecia are only partially done. All the various character textures you'll see are originally made by Magochocobo. So all credit to him for that!
