Title: [FF8PC-Steam] Rebirth Flame v1.3 - Character Texture Replacement

Rebirth Flame v1.3
Character Texture Replacement (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. :D 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 All the various character textures you'll see are originally made by Magochocobo.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!

______________
Directions:

1.   Download Tonberry v1.61 or later http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=15945.0 (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=15945.0)
2.   Install Tonberry and all of it's components
3.   Pick your preferred pack, unzip the folder provided, and place "ch" into the "textures" folder.
4.   Place "RebirthFlame_hm" into the "hashmap" folder.

You should be good to go after this.

Note: There are a few versions of Squall(low poly and high poly) within the texture folder. You can pick and choose which ones you like by renaming them.

Make sure to disable the Steam Overlay to prevent any crashes.

Known Bugs: Possible disappearing NPCs, party members, objects and reverting textures. If any are found, please let me know so I can fix it.

Special thanks:

Omzy - For creating Tonberry.
JeMaCheHi and maverick - For helping/currently improving Tonberry.
Shunsq - For the BerryMapper tool and getting this project going.
Mortael - For Project Lionheart which inspired me to start helping out.

Thanks! I kept putting it off because I got too obsessed with hashing. :P Thanks for the offer! Though, I'm sure you're busy with your own projects. As it stands, I really want to obtain all the hashcodes for the current characters we have. Which will probably be the longest process of all this. I'll work on other characters codes if any artists make textures for them.

Nicely done and congrats, also nice picture what system do you play on?
Thank you. System...?

About the hashing.... are you sure you need all of those hash codes?   Can you pm me the original bit maps? Im going to test through all of the objmap codes and on any collision,  I'll try to find the colliding texture and fix the issue.  (Maybe even just upscale it) i think we might both be able to dump our hashmaps for this mod and lunar cry.  (Do you have the matching "eyes closed" bitmaps?)

I can't say for certain, actually. I do know they yield less glitches. Except for a few exceptions. But those are easily remedied. But the debug process is quite painful to sit through for those. While I can fix disappearing NPCs for the objmaps, I haven't found a way to fix the disappearing party members. Er...I don't have the original bitmaps for the objmap since my computer upgrade. I could probably gather them all back up tonight, though. Especially since that's much easier for me to do. If you could come up with a solution and we could dump them, that'd be great.

Try this for the missing party member:

Go to the location where the glitch is happening.
Put Tonberry in Debug mode/get textures just for this one scene!
Instead of opening the 'nomatch' folder, open 'replaced' and look for the bitmap that has the missing Character, which will also have one of the other Characters that is on the same texture bitmap.  Now go to whatever .png you made originally and add that Character to the opposite side (top/bottom) of the .png so that it looks like the bitmap you found in 'noreplace'  This should be the fix you're looking for.

Let me know if that made sense.... lol

Oh, no, I get what you're saying. And, you see, you'd think that'd make sense... But because objmap codes extend over a big chunk of areas for the low poly characters, it fixes some things while causing problems with others. Like, if I use the way you suggest, it fixes Zell and the guards are no longer kicking the invisible man. But in doing so, you end up with things like this.
(http://i.imgur.com/bwlHvjN.jpg)

And you can't really fix that because both areas share the same objmap code. So they can't be separated...I don't think. It could be because of this odd texture setup, too.

Thank you. I've actually had that in the pack since you first made it. And I also made a student uniform one to go along with it for this release. :D

Just wanted to say thanks, looks and works great opposite Lunar Cry!

You are welcome and thank you. Just be weary that bugs are still a thing right now. And there could possibly be a few with this mod and Lunar Cry. So if there is, let us know.

It's funny you should mention Bugs, I actually came across one late in my evening when I made it to Disc 2.  During the D-District Prison when Zell is your main character, he is both missing when "Mean Guy" is kicking him (which was absolutely hilarious) and also while running around the various floors as your Party Leader, you simply see his shadow.  Battle Field was unaffected and functioned normally.

At work right now, but let me know what I need to do to help us both.

Yeah... That's one I've been wracking my brain over to figure out. For the most part, I think I have a solution to most disappearing characters. But there are a few exceptions...and that's one of them right now. Just let me know if you come across any more spots where characters disappear on you. That way I can try out this method in those spots to see if it solves anything.

Had it happen again, but only briefly during the Galbadia Missile Base.  While Selphie is your Main Character and in disguise, upon completing all the objectives in the base and walking up the stairs to the control room (still in disguise).  Selphie is missing, but still casts a shadow.  As soon as they take off the disguises she reappears.

It's fine if people want to edit them for personal use. Granted, they give credit to the original artist if ever given out. Though, it would be nice to see what they could do or even help out. But hey. To each their own.

got a question on the pack, you said we could use which ever squall we want, low or high poly, well im kinda new at this so i am wondering if you could tell me which one is default (which on it uses when i just put the files in the folders) and what i need to do to change it to just use one? i noticed you said to rename them, but i dont know which one to rename XD (been having a glitch where squalls textures pop in and out, like its using the old ones and then switchs back to new ones, so i think this might be the issue)

The default ones always end with "_13". So, all you need to do is have the one you like end with that and name the ones you aren't using with some other number afterwards like "_131, _132, etc". For consistency, you'll need to pick the matching textures in all the Squall folders and set them to default "_13". Except for the world ones. As for the blinking textures... That shouldn't be happening. Is it only Squall that does this?

If anyone is having trouble with certain character replacements, it may be due to the objmap.csv file I accidentally included in the Tonberry 2.03 release. This file was from an early pre-release version of Rebirth Flame and contains different texture names than the newer versions. If both objmap.csv and RebirthFlame_obj.csv contain duplicate hash codes, the former will take precedence and prevent the latter from loading.

If you have a file called 'objmap.csv' in your \tonberry\objmap directory, it should be deleted!

Edit: no longer an issue with Tonberry v2.04

yes, i think i figured it out by completely uninstalling and reinstalling the modes. so i think it was just me having a mod in there that was conflicting and didnt remember. but now im running into another issue, when squall does his blasting zone it freezes the game and i have to force close it. the only mods i have is the ones that mcindus (probably spelling his name wrong :P) mentioned in the tonberry enhanced forum (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=15945.msg223951#msg223951 (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=15945.msg223951#msg223951)) and this one. so ive gotta figure out which one is causing the problem now ><

EDIT: seems like all of his limit breaks are doing it.... time for a fresh install with no mods to see if it does it :'(

You don't need to do a fresh install. I'd wait for the next version of Tonberry to be released to see if that fixes the problem. This seems to only happen when you're fighting certain enemies. Like a Tonberry.

ok, i might just play with no mods (which is gonna suck, but i can deal with it) to do some of the long and tedious tasks on disc 2. thanks for the help, i might just try doing a single install of each mod to see if its specific to a mod + tonberry

You shouldn't feel stupid, this was not a part of the Known Issues list until the release of 2.04. Yes, I added it on there with the strikethrough :P There had been some discussion of the Limit Break problem in several different places but we can't expect everyone to go digging through dozens of comments just to see if someone else has had this issue. Normally I would have added it to the Known Issues bit earlier but since I don't own that thread it's not easy for me to update the first post...

In any case, I'm glad 2.04 seems to have fixed this issue for you  ;D

ok so far i noticed if you have irvine and rinoa (rinoa in the third position in menu) in the party and you go to bridge on balamb garden to control it, rinoa disappears, used zell and she reappears, she also disappears in the space scene before you get on the ragnarok, and also some parts when shes on the ground (havnt tried it with irvine not in my party) in space........

also wanted to let you know the spaced suits apparently have the skin of one of the characters instead of the normal white color..

Disappearing characters and NPCs are a known issue. As for the spacesuits, it should be Zell's textures overlapping due to matching codes. I hope to have most of this fixed by Monday.

Hey, no, it's fine. I know about most now. So I guess the objmap will just have to go once I'm able to release a decent hashmap. Thanks. Honestly, I know invisible characters must be an eyesore at times.

And sadly, it's taken me longer than I hoped to get it out there. :P

But I've been working on getting other things in as well.

I don't make the textures. But I do move and fit them to work with the low poly models and the uniforms that haven't been made. I'm working hard to make sure this doesn't die out. :)

Just takes a little learning and trial and error. Couldn't do this without Mago's textures and Shunsq's BerryMapper tool. And the support and help from others. :)

Yeah... It's funny to look at. And maybe a little disturbing for some. ;D But luckily, with the coming release this will be fixed...mostly. Just have one more scene where that happens and I hope to fix it soon.

To add more options, or boredom at times and wanted to change things up for my own playthrough, I decided to add Mortael's gunblade texture to the low poly one. Not too bad I think. But I do need to find a way to give the barrel/trigger more shine. Whether people use it for themselves in the later release is up to them. I also wonder if he ever finished the other ones he and Crestian were working on. They were looking pretty great.

This will be fixed in the next release that I should have up by either Sunday or Monday. What you can do for now is move rebirthflame_obj to the disable folder in Tonberry to disable the mod. Get through that one scene, then move it back out to turn it back on.

I've decided to finally release a new version of this mod. So I now present v1.1. This version should fix almost all disappearing objects in the game. A tradeoff is still a few textures reverting. But no where near as bad. There are three ways this might happen... One, certain areas where you go into battle. Afterwards, they might revert. Please let me know the areas where this happens so I can fix it. Two, using the Magical Lamp to fight Diablos. Since you can fight him at almost any time and in any area the textures are numerous and will take quite some time to collect. Three, a certain party combination in a certain area I missed. Again, let me know about it.

Things I've added:

-A couple altered costumes. (Some still need some tweaking.)
-The rest of the weapons for the Student Uniform battlers. (Nothing will revert back now.)
-Tweaked textures.
-Changed the gunblade texture for certain moments. (Consistency mostly.)

And most likely some other things I'm forgetting at the moment. :P

You no longer need the objmap for this mod. You can either delete it or move it to the disabled folder. But I'll leave the 1.0 version up for those who still want to use the objmap if they still feel unsatisfied.

Edit: Corrected a few names in the hashmap (Irvine's battler which uses Ulysses). And, to the best of my ability, upscaled the weapons better.

Just stopped by to say I tweaked the pack some more. All weapons have been properly upscaled. Or...rather...they don't look like crap anymore. I've also fixed default Squall's eyes on his low poly model so they don't look so big. I plan to fix the costumes later on. Like the hand placement on Quistis and Selphie in their SeeD uniforms and also try to take a crack at properly upscaling the uniforms as well. Oh, and actually finish the low poly Ultimecia.

See? Seifer's weapon actually looks like a weapon and no orange tint like on the last one.  :-P
(http://i.imgur.com/by1GLKX.jpg)

As for code gathering... I'll probably resume that by the end of this month seeing as how I'm in the process of moving. Time is a little short this month. But I'll continue to tweak things as I do that.

More things I've been working on. Modified world map Squall and his uniform counterpart. Finished Ulti, but she isn't perfect. Believe I just need to finish one more for Quistis. Then I should be good and then add them to the pack.

Thanks. Now they are all up and ready in the v1.1 link on the first page. Just be sure to use the updated hashmap for the other things to take effect.

I assume that is some kind of texture problem with Project Eden.

Can anyone help me out? I tried to install Tonberry/Rebirth by flame/Project Hellfire. I am not seeing the effects of the mods. Right now I have the following setup with no success, if I am doing this all wrong, I'd really appreciate the help XD, here goes:

Tonberry is under the file locat: C:\Program Files (x86)\Final Fantasy VIII\ (I don't have a common file under steam apps just the Final Fantasy folder under program files)

In Tonberry: Debug folder, hashmap, objmap, collissions.csv, hash2map.csv, prefs, and readme.

Under hashmap: RebirthFlame_hm.csv
Under Objmap: ProjectHellfire_hm.csv
Under debug: error0, nomatch0, nomatch20, noreplace0, replaced, unsupported0

Any help would be appreciated.

Did you put the textures in the texture folder? I didn't see it in your post. The textures for mine are named "ch". If you haven't, put that folder in the textures folder that should've came with Tonberry.

Yes, I put those in the textures folder along with all the others minus the hash2map.csv and collisions.csv, those are in the tonberry folder. The only things that I can think of is the C++ when i tried to install that, it said that I had a newer version previously installed on my computer and the prefs are not setup

As long as you're up to date, you're fine. I don't think messing with the preferences will do much. You could always try to reinstall Tonberry. Because as it stands you did all the steps right.

You put put Tonberry and its components along with the texture folder in your FF8 directory. Put the collisions and hashmap2 in the Tonberry folder. Put the textures in the textures folder. Hashmap and objmap in their folder. Unless I'm forgetting something it should work.

Do you mean how to install this mod? There are directions on the first page along with a link to Tonberry which also has directions to install it. If you mean what you need to mod it yourself, like editing textures, you can use Tonberry to debug to pull some textures in which you can upscale and or paint the textures yourself.

You might try reinstalling your game. I also know of one person who said he fixed the same issue you had by copying the .dll that's missing from another Steam game he had. Though, I haven't tried this myself.

Hi ppl!

FatedCourage, I really like your work. Before this mod, I was playing with de Shunsq's character replacement mod and it works fine. Now I updated to your mod, and it's like it were off.
I dn't know what I'm doing wrong: Update to Tomberry v2.04, paste the 'ch' folder in textures folder, the RebirthFlame_hm at hashmap.

I have SeeDReborn (spanish version)  and Xbox360 Controller Mod working fine.

I'm really desperate and breaking my head for what's going wrong.

Hm... Did you remove the character replacement before using RF? You'll need to do that so nothing conflicts. All RF is is Shunsq's and Mortael's work but more updated so to speak. And when you updated Tonberry, did you replace/update all the files? That could also be the cause.

Sorry, I meant the components/files that came with Tonberry v2.04. Or rather, put everything that came with v2.04 into your directory. Which will replace all the old files. If you've completely updated all of Tonberry, then I can't think of much else. I'm really not that tech savvy sadly.

When I'll to mod my characters, I cann't do that maybe cause by my tonberry v1.5 and I change with tonberry v2.04.
This is my steps if you'll to try :
First, I cut texture contents and tonberry contents to another place.
Next, extract tonberry v2.04 to your FF VIII folder and replace that's all.
Then, cut texture contents and tonberry contents that you cut previous to new tonberry folder in FF VIII folder.
Later, place the tonberry contents like RebirthFlame_hm, ProjectEden_hm, and etc to hashmap.
Play and enjoy !

Btw, what the function of lunar cry ?

Thank you for the help FatedCourage! Now that I played for a while with the mod I can see the really good and hard work that you've done. Unafortunately, i had to put off the Project Eden mod (lot of freezes loading textures).

I'll repeat again, Thank you.

There appears to be an issue with Selphie. Now and again her texture will not load as displayed here for example.

I've also encountered this in Deling City, when everytime I left General Cararway's Mansion, she would dissapear.

The other place it has occurred from me was in the prison district, but it didn't happen for long.

Thought I'd mention this now as it is becoming some-what regular.

I'll look into the concert part. I still have a save for that.

Edit: Took a look. She is still there for me.

(http://i.imgur.com/emmg3V2.jpg)

I'm curious about the prison part... I've gone through there multiple times and haven't had that happen. At what point did her texture do that? Also haven't had the Caraway Mansion disappearance happen since I've stopped using the objmap. What point in the game was that?

I should also ask if you're still using the objmap. Because if you are, that alone causes a lot of disappearing textures. If not, maybe I've corrected a few things lately that I've been working on without knowing.

The prison, it was soon as you were free of your prison cell. I'm way past that now though.

In dealing. It was literally each time you left the house. Inside the mansion she would be there but when you start following General Caraway so he can show you the route Eden takes in her parade, she doesn't show up until you reach the clock tower under passage. Then you go back to the mansion and the scene where Quistis has a go at Rinoa, she there, but as soon as you leave the house to get into position, she disappears again until you reach the clock again. Once youre locked in the house and find the secret passage, she's dissappear as soon as you go down the ladder underground for the entire time. I might have a clip of this. I'll check when I'm home.

And no, I'm not using any of them. I remember reading here to delete them before I even started playing.

I do have a clip in deling city, but I need to compress it first.

Huh. Couldn't recreate it or the Deling City part. So, I've updated the v1.1 link for you to try out. I've updated the hashmap and a few texture tweaks. If it fixes any of your problems, please let me know.

That's strange. Could be something else interfering. Sometime, Triple Triad will revert to its original state and the same with the 'world map' map.

I'll give this ago though. Thanks

My map did the same thing. I've taken the liberty of fixing the rest of that myself and haven't an issue with that since. ...Should probably send that file to Mcindus now that I think about it. :P Haven't messed with TT in awhile. Could probably gather the rest of those codes too if I knew all the places it reverted in the game.

Hey guys im having an issues with RF, no matter how i install it, it will not work. i have tonberry 2.04. Lunar cry works great along with all the other mods. ive also tired RF 1.0 but that hasnt worked either. when ever i put the hashmap inside the hashmap folder none of the mods work. but outside the folder just inside the tonberry folder they work fine with the exception of RF. The ch files are definitely in the texture folder. idk what the deal is, and i cant screen shot while in game running off a mac unfortunately. And i cant attach the screen shot of the folders for whatever reason. :cry: Thanks.(http://)

Long time lurker, and once registered here. I guess there was some account purge not too long ago?

Anyhow...

First off, thank you for your hard work on updating these textures. It makes playing the game much easier on the eyes these days.

Reason why I'm posting:

(http://i.imgur.com/Kh1nFy9.jpg)
(http://i.imgur.com/2hKcBKQ.jpg)

This is scarier than the Omega Weapon.

It's totally playable of course. The problem I'm running into following this scene in space is "catching" Rinoa. She never appears. It's maddening! Consider this an error report. :)

I'm going to try to remove the textures folder and see if I can get by this section of the game.

On record, here are my hashmap and objmap folders with Tonberry 2.04:

(http://i.imgur.com/NB50lue.png)

I wouldn't be surprised if I screwed something up. I honestly just threw what I thought should be in each folder. The files were gathered from various places all over this forum.

Sure enough, removing the "ch" folder from my "Textures" folder temporarily fixed the issue outright.

Here's a screen grab after I completed the sequence inside of the Ragnarok:

And here's a screen after dumping the "ch" folder back into my "Textures" folder and reloading:

You're still using the objmap. If you're using v1.1, you don't really need it. And it causes the problems that you saw.

Does this include the weapon textures from the berrymapper thread?

If you mean the most recent pictures posted, then no sadly. But I'd love to have them in game.

It's odd how all seem to work but RF. You're putting the "ch" folder in the textures folder right? You're running it off a mac? Are you using Wine? Not sure if this would screw up how the directories work or not.

Yeah, well the Mac is partitioned with bootcamp so its running windows 7 on this side for pc only programs and Steam. "ch" is definitely in the textures folder. (http://file:///C:/Users/Sir%20Andrew%20II/Downloads/Capture1.PNG ;D)  (http://file:///C:/Users/Sir%20Andrew%20II/Downloads/Capture.PNG)

What is your native language? If these instructions are hard to understand, maybe it will be easier for someone who knows the same language to explain it to you.

This is how you can add pictures.

Hm... Tough to say, then. RF works just like any other graphical mod using Tonberry v1.61 or higher. They all roughly follow the same steps to get them working. And you said others work, too... Now as for why Tonberry isn't working properly for you(like the files only work outside their folders), I couldn't tell you because that isn't my field. Perhaps someone else could help with that.

Well, for starters, I believe the .dll files are supposed to be outside of the tonberry folder. Not in it. I also don't think there is a need for "hash1map" if you're using the Project Eden hashmap.

IT WORKS! what i did to fix it was uninstalled ffviii(wasnt necessary) then erased Tonberry and texture folders. re created tonberry folder and re un zipped mods back into tonberry. if i had to guess it mayve been due to deleteing the disable folder, not sure why that'd prohibit anything but it works now. Your textures look AMAZING! now i can giddily play FVIII!

Just wanted to post something to show I'm still working on this. Still looking for areas with disappearing textures and bugs. Although, I have managed to fix one thing that was annoying me since I got the PC version of the game. That was the instruments for the concert. I know, very minor thing, but I like that scene.

Some instruments looked like this.
(http://i.imgur.com/nDr1krG.jpg)

Now they look the way they are supposed to.
(http://i.imgur.com/n6DE4rm.jpg)

Turns out some of the instruments were pulling the textures from the wrong area. So I managed a workaround by placing the correct one there. Still testing to see if it causes any issues. Once I'm confident it doesn't, I'll update the pack.

Did finally update v.1.1 for the instrument fix. Couldn't find anything unusual. Also added more codes to the hashmap for reverting textures.

I've also tested other unrelated things but feel like posting them here for now as food for thought...

I've seen people using the Waifu upscale and wanted to try it out on a few things in FF8(I actually reupscaled the instruments with it, too).

Looks great to me. Look forward to your completion of it. Will the Friendship summon (Moomba), Chicobo, Mini Mog, and Gilgamesh also be a part of this pack? I was mainly showing off what the Waifu upscale can do for FF8. Not really working on anything at the moment.

Well whatever you did to the battle backgrounds in the picture above was a pretty big improvement, and I don't think anyone else is working on them or at least if they are they haven't said anything on these forums.

Thanks. Just a simple waifu upscale is all. It doesn't appear that way, but you never know. Guess I could give it a shot for those that want an upscaled vanilla experience. Though, I think some backgrounds have animations which might restrict some things. So far I'm up to 93 backgrounds collected. I've been collecting things and upscaling them for my own personal testing, like bosses.

It's probably the objmap causing all of that. If you're using the hashmap at this point, then you don't really need the objmap. Take it out and see if it fixes your problems.

Hello, this is a really nice mod :) Thanks for your work here but I've found a missing texture, while riding a chocobo. There is no texture for this sweet chocobo :(

I've searched the hashmap RebirthFlame_hm.csv and found out, that "char_sqworld_13,12571052299668781849" is doing this bug (1st entry in *World Map) after deleting it, all textures working fine.

 May be this is helping others.

Greetings

Thank you. I'm aware of this problem and will be fixing the hashmap soon. Though, you didn't have to delete it. Just simply renamed it to "char_special_17". But like I said, I'll get the hashmap updated soon since I've added more codes anyway.

Updated the hashmap to fix the disappearing Chocobo problem. Hoping that's the last of it.

Edited a few of the textures(including adding some filtering to the ones I upscaled using the waifu program).

Changed up Squall's weapons a bit. If you dislike it, I'll put the old ones back in if you liked the uniqueness. Or, make a copy of your current "ch" folder. Fixed the hair on Squall in his student uniform.
 
Oh. And I fixed the coloring of Squall's hand on the Devina edits for those of you that use them.

Okay... The second one is my edit of the edit. :P But the original has been fixed, too.

And...that should be everything.

Even now, huh? Looks like the best action is for me to just name them one thing rather than split them up to prevent it from happening. Since I'll never be able to figure out which codes do and don't cause that to happen.

Edit: It's been done. Hope this fixes the problem. Also added a few textures.

Back in March, Devina released an image slice that replaced Quistis's fisheyes with FF/KH style ones. A few weeks ago, I took all 6 Quistis textures from the pack, and replaced the eyes with Devina's new ones. Just replace those 6 subfolders of /textures/qu with these: http://www.mediafire.com/download/s33urhm4lq2nmon/qu.zip

I noticed you posted those awhile back. I meant to ask you if you wanted them added to the RF pack or just remain separate. I would also put them on the SeeD Uniform of Quistis and on her low poly models as well. You know, consistency and all that. :D

I don't use Chocobos that often in the game. But when I did use them, no. Actually...it shouldn't do that at all now because I literally renamed the codes in the new hashmap.

I don't think there should be... It should only be because of the codes and how Tonberry sometimes does with textures... Which I changed. At what point in the game are you?

I'd be fine with them in the pack, and I didn't mean to neglect her SeeD uniform texture, I just couldn't find her textures in any other folder. The low-poly textures would require the eyes to be dumbed down in a specific way, and I didn't know if I could get that just right, since the other textures just needed a simple drag-and-drop.

Ah, okay. Oh, no, I didn't mean that you had to. I meant that I could do it for you. Since Devina didn't change the skin tones and you already applied the new eyes, all I need to do is scale the face and align. Not too hard all things considered. So no worries. :)

I think i got where the problem is coming from
the game, instead of taking chocobo´s texture form char_special_17.png is taking it from char_special_25.png (where there´s nothing on that spot)

edit: yeah i copied the upper part of char_special_17 into char_special_25, so to see how it works, and the chocobo appears (despite the white parts that should be transparent, since paint doesnt support transparency)

Thanks for figuring it out. I assumed it might be another code to something else. So to make this 100% without problems(I hope), I'll just combine them together. Thanks again I'll try and get it all fixed soon.

Edit: Okay, it's up. Be sure to replace/delete the old textures and use the new ones. And use the edited hashmap as well. Hope this sorts out all the problems.

That's okay. :)

As for the hashmap and textures... They should all be there. The codes are only for the battle models. I haven't gotten around to their low poly models. So if they aren't loading in battle, then I must've messed something up somewhere.

That's actually the game causing that. It happens without the mod as well. The only other time I've seen it is with Squall in space. It bothers me as well... Maybe eventually someone can find a way to fix it.

Finally updated Rebirth Flame to v1.2 after a long while. Perhaps too long... But hey, my fault. Life can be...fun sometimes.

What I've done:

1. Tried my best to update low poly Fujin's textures. Though... The bad UV makes her face look...terrible.
2. Everything else (that being Kiros, Ward, Edea, Raijin, and Rinoa's party dress) have been upscaled.
3. Reupscaled and updated a few textures.
4. Added Devina's version of Quistis and added low poly versions of that as well.
5. Updated the hashmap more.
6. I've split Mago and Devina's textures into two packs. That way you can pick whichever one you like. (I've updated the front page with some pictures.)

There might be more...but I can't be bothered to remember. I'll add it later if there is.  ::)

Thanks for sending the textures for me to incorporate them. Oh, definitely. With all the codes now in place, any artist can now paint any of the main characters they want and they'll work right away. Though, all that remains to be seen. From here on out, there isn't much more updating I can do on my own.

First of all i want to thank all the modders/artists who made this mod.

But i don't see any eyes blinking when they should (ie Quistis and Squall during theyr animations after a victory, or when summoning a GF, etc). Did i mess up something while installing? (Although the models seems to work perfectly apart for the blinking).
Or is this meant to be like this? Are there any chances to see a "fix" on this in the future?

They don't blink at the moment. That requires two things for it to work. One is for Tonberry to give more accurate hashes because at the moment it can't tell the difference between open and shut eyes. Two would be for the artist of the textures to create the textures with their eyes shut. At the moment some are and some aren't.

I see, thank you for the fast and clear reply.

I just hope this will be possible one day or another. I think the blinking (in all sorts of FF8 animations/situations) really gives an extra % of realism to the whole experience.

Anyway, keep rocking guys.

Small update: Fixed up Irvine's legs so they are more consistent. Added a few more hashcodes to the fray. One thing I forgot from the last update was that I changed Zell's face to the more serious look across all models for more consistency. I might reupscale a few textures later down the line, but I'll see.

On an unrelated note to this project... Some people are curious how the FF8 backgrounds would look with waifu. It is something I'm working on as well. Just a long and very, /very/ tedious project. So if you want to see, here is a video with some. I'll upload more as I continue with this and getting battle effects/magic upscaled and looking all pretty.

Sorry for not responding faster... By bad, do you mean back to the original textures or is there overlap? Or do you mean his model changes detail? Because the second one is normal since the game does that. A screenshot would be helpful.

No problem. I just wanted to see what the game would look like, too. :) The only drawback is I won't be able to get smooth edges like Omzy's with my method. But I'll get a lot less glitched areas.

Thanks for your answer, so here is my problem, the first image is when squall looks low quality (you can see the low detail in his face and in his jacket) , the second one is the one i want to see all the game , both pictures where taken on the Lagunamov , but the good quality image is just in that room of the Lagunamov. is it normal ? thanks again!

Yup! That's all normal. That's just how the game is. The quality of textures/models change depending on the field. The other characters are affected as well. So all is good. :)

The reason this happens is because the UVs in the game are off.  It seems that everything is scaled too much and cuts off a pixel at the texture seams. this causes strange issues, and in the lower poly models, the issue is much more obvious.

There is a way to sloppy-fix this, but it would be much better for an overall UV patch for FF8 Steam

So if you want to see, here is a video with some. I'll upload more as I continue with this and getting battle effects/magic upscaled and looking all pretty.

Raw screenshot from FatedCourage's video: (colors look a bit "washed out/filled with light", see the bottom black bars, because nowadays YouTube tends to do that)

I have the Project Eden mod installed and it does a fine job in refining most backgrounds i've seen (i've seen just the initial part of the game tho, and even found a couple of glitches; no big deal, i'm not complaining ofc, it looks amazing).
But i wonder: is there something wrong with my Project Eden installation, or, are the differences in the 2 screenshots normal? Is all thanks to waifu? If that's the case, wow, so looking forward to that.
Really nice improvement. Great job!

Your installation is fine. That's the noticeable difference using waifu. It's a really good filter.

Yes, waifu is generally better-looking than Project Eden, but upon closer inspection, many of the areas of Nedus's game are still pixelated, like the up arrow sign. A fully functional installation of Eden would at least make it look better than the original game, so something else is wrong here, whether it's the texture folders or the hashmaps or some other third thing.

Here's my game with and without Project Eden:

So, it is definitely doing its job. But yeah, i got some pixelations here and there but i thought that was normal. Now you're making me doubt.
EDIT: I just realized this is mostly Project Eden-related. I'll go post in the appropriate thread. Sorry for the unintentional off topic, but the news about this waifu stuff were very interesting.

Might be a collision with a hashmap due to him using the Italian Version... or could just be a lack of collisions.csv and hash2map.csv

In /common/ff8/tonberry i do have collisions.csv hash2map.csv AND a hash1map.csv
I'm not sure if this is ok or needs to be sorted. Anyway, i made some tests: having all 3 files, 1 or 2 of them (regardless which ones), or none of them doesn't change background appearance at all (actually, it seems to have 0 impact on any of the mods i've installed).

But then again, i know nothing of how all of this really works. So, uh, maybe it's all as it should be.

OH! That's your problem.  Get rid of hash1map - it's the original tonberry hashmap and will cause collisions.

Like i said in the previous post: i made some tests and it doesn't matter which file/s combination/s i keep in that folder. Nothing changes (compared to the original situation). Meaning that Project Eden still leaves some pixelated areas. Other mods are also working as usual.

Anyway, from what i understand "hash1map" is a futile file so, to be sure, i'll leave only collisions and hash2map in the folder. But the issue is still unsolved (not that i mid tho, it's no big deal really)

I believe this is an issue with SOME problems with ProjectEden - and some missed collisions, etc.  Also - this may be an issue with the language you're using.  I'm not sure.  It should be able to be fixed, but it's an arduous process and I have no time to help, currently.

And I digress - I don't want to flood this post with any more eden stuff.  Sorry, FC :)

I think part of why the video screenshot is washed out is due to the recording and rendering software I was using, too. It wasn't playing nice during this. Looking at your screenshot, it appears that the area you're in is missing a hashcode. Getting it should fix the problem. I've been grabbing all the missing hashes for English as I do this since it's missing hashes as well. But I assume Italian has it's own set of codes?

Nah, it's cool. It's nice to see the conversation for FF8 start back up again. ;) Once I make more progress, I'll make a separate thread regarding the waifu fields.
Title: Petrification - textures missing?
Post by: asfr11 on 2017-01-21 19:58:37
Hello there.

I've noticed that when a character is petrified, textures get reverted to their unmodified status.

It's funny to see the transition from HD to 1998 graphics when a character gets turned into stone and back, but I was wondering if there is something that can be done about it. Any ideas?

Besides that, as a personal preference, the clothes shouldn't be petrified, I think, when a character is petrified, just the "flesh". Can that be done too via mods?

Thanks.

Ah, someone finally noticed that. Yeah... It's something I plan to remedy once I figure out a way for it to look natural on the HD textures. The same goes for "Zombie" as well. Though, I plan to keep the style original to the game. Perhaps your request can be an optional thing to use. I'll see.

No problem. :) They just have their own set of codes. So, unlike effects like aura, it has it's own unique set of textures. Which means I need to make the HD textures to appear to have the same effect. Like stone and dark green.

Hello, Awesome mods u guys r putting to ffviii
I have few question, I'm using the high poly models, the majority of the texture work in most of the areas, expect some(missing the body texture, Head works) I was wondering if there a step by step where I can find the hash code for them I look all over the forum really confuse to finding them, all the low poly work great, but I prefer the high ones

thanks.

Thanks. :) It's not too complicated. You just go into the Tonberry folder and remove the zero from the "debug" folder. Start up your game, best in windowed mode, and just go into the areas the textures aren't replaced. They'll show up inside "nomatch", I think the folder is called? Use Berrymapper to hash the textures and put the hash codes in the RF hash map making sure to put the correct name/for the corresponding texture in front of the code.

Hey guys, I've got one problem with this mod. Every other mod I installed works but this one doesn't seem to work as intented. I saw other screenshots and my in game characters don't look like them. Or they do? I'm confused. How can I fix it? (newest versions of tonberry/rebirth flame + every file is in right place checked 100 times).

Everything looks right to me... Unless I'm missing something. The game switches between low poly and high poly models is all. So models change depending on the areas you're in.

I believe you can make it all high poly, but no guarantee there aren't glitches and I never tested or made a hashmap for it.

Now updated to v1.3. This update includes upscaled characters and weapons for those who don't want the new textures. (Might try and touch up the upscales some more later.) But know that using the upscaled textures will show some UV errors that even non-upscaled characters have. You can see what I mean with the pictures I've added to the download page.

I've also split up the textures into different downloads rather than one big one. Just to lessen the file size to download. I've also touched up some other textures. And...that should be it, I think.

By the way, has the problem with models turning into original PSX versions when afflicted by zombie or petrification status been fixed?

You're welcome. :)

Sadly not... I tried, but I ran into collision problems. Some codes with Petrify, Zombie, and just the normal textures are duplicated. Meaning some petrified textures will show on Zombie and vice versa. So I had to abandon it for now. :( If Tonberry ever gets updated again, I might be able to pull it off.

I hope someone can mix the upscaled faces and edited body textures together. This can make the character looks more original instead of completely different "actors".

I was thinking this same thing.  I might give my own artistic skills a go at this one and update all of the faces and 'redraw' them based 100% on the original textures.. more like a re-creation than an upscale, but with the 'feel' of an upscale.

I could always give it a shot. My only fear is it not looking natural or it might clash. But who knows? Have to fix Selphie in the upscales anyway... So I'll look while doing that.

I can definitely help out with this.  I have several texturing programs, and if I could get my hands on a good obj of the characters, then I could easily retexture them... however - the obj's available out there all have UV's that are offset. (outside of the normal UVW range) - and if the UVs are off, then my texturing process is borderline useless.  That being said, I can always help whip up a 'mix'

FYI - just tossed an 'uncensored' version of Gerogero to FatedCourage!  I hope it makes it out for the next release of Rebirth Flame!  I can always drop it here if that's more convenient.

I looked at references and tried my own hand at the recolorization, using the GeroGero in the latest mod, seeing as how I can't seem to find the japanese textures for him. lol.

Also, got Noesis up and working, with all game folders unpacked, etc. - and I'm going to start reskinning the models immediately.

Mmh, not like that, i mean like the mod one but a little more lighter! , don't know if it's a more complex work, in that case you can always release the shooting star from the original mod but with the improved color skin and dress :)

Edit: anyway i've done a search on google images and most of the cosplayers use a completely white shooting star like yours, so i think it's okay!, do the improvements at your liking, because it's your "edit" after all, it's good for me like the one in the first image, looking forward the complete release tomorrow :lol:

So this happened to me in my recent playthrough. It happened once for Quistis when Zell was the leader and now as Irvine as party leader.  :-o

Edit: The author of this mod released a fix for this. You can dl it here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1PL7Zl83hvcfbhQVI6OOZjnJA63upCWHQ/view

----------------------------------------

I found a bug. During the opening intro, there is a texture that appears off to the side. Here's a screenshot: https://www.dropbox.com/s/82vdx5tejjd0yac/FF8-bug.bmp

How can I fix this?

Whoa whoa whoa I don't think this file is good to use to fix the intro.  I would get rid of it if I were you, guys.  There are some issues with collisions for other languages, etc.
