_________BERRYMAPPER_________
Berrymapper is a tool to use in combination with the texture injector TONBERRY, written by Omzy. Tonberry is a program that extracts texures from the game and replace them with HD ones. To make this possible Tonberry has to identify the texture to be replaced, by giving them "hashcodes". Those hashcodes are generated with BERRYMAPPER.

Here is what Berrymapper produces:
sql_13,1721133567

And when Tonberry reads it it gives this in runtime:


LAST EDIT 2014-12-06:
Here is the program i created to generate the hashmaps:Berrymapper

It's a little console program that reads the content of Berrymapper.exe/INPUT and converts it to hashcode in the OUTPUT folder.

For character hashcodes copy "objmap.csv" and put it in FINAL FANTASY VIII/tonberry/hashmap/

For other textures copy "hashmap.csv" and put it in FINAL FANTASY VIII/tonberry/hashmap/

Follow the directives in the links below: Tonberry directives

It worked! Thank you! (and Magochocobo of course)  I hope you're able to find the hash values for the other characters.

Do you have the Steam version of FF8? Omzy's mod only works for the Steam version.

Awesome start, can you give a tutorial for finding out which textures you need from the texture dump, because Omzys explanation doesn't really help, and I'd like to help also how did you know what to name the files for the new textures etc. Also when I was looking at the textures it looked like every scene has them differently if thats the case doing all characters is gonna take a while

Yes i have the steam version and have others mods installed as well. This just doesn't seem to work. You put the textures in the texture folder in tonberry right?

And one more thing, i change the "objfile" to "objmap" and he says to copy the text on it at the end , but for me the file doesn't have anything when i first open it. Is it supposed to be like that?

Yes the objmap should be empty just copy the names and hash numbers using notepad and save, then copy the sq folder into the textures folder, keep in mind only certain parts of balamb garden work and only with Squall

Hi everyone and thank  you for your positive feedback,
To help me, play the game  ::). Each time  you see that a texture isn't replaced do as follows:
-Switch to your desktop without quiting the game and open your FINAL FANTASY VIII/Tonberry/ folder. Change "debug0" into "debug".
-Go back to the game and move around during 5 seconds in the scene( don't move into another scene !).
-Switch back to the tonberry folder and change "debug" into "debug0".Look into  debug/nomatch/ for textures that look like sqpant, sqhead or sql. Even if it seems to be the same texture send it to me anyway.
-Copy them into a new folder, zip it and send it to me.

I use my own program to generate hashcode from the textures. It is based on Tonberry hash generator.

It appears you've only changed Squall. Do you think you'll get to Mago's other reskins eventually?

I probably have it correct , maybe i just haven't run across the specific parts you speak of. Can you give me a place to test that you know works for sure?

Make sure theres only 1 sq folder with 3 files inside that one, it actually works at most places just try balamb garden to be sure.

I tried every area in Balamb Garden and Balamb town but still doesnt show up for me. I don't understand whats the problem , do i need to add support for these textures to tonberry or something?
Thx also for the fast replys.

I really dislike some aspects of the texture that I feel are unfaithful to the original, so I changed a few things.

- Made the necklace higher so it doesn't have that black pixel near the bottom
- Desaturated the jacket from brown to black
- Made the jacket and pants darker. This fixes the weird line on the thigh.
- Made the hair darker

Left = original
middle = original HD
right = my version



If you can retexture all the other models, I'd be happy to collaborate on an HD texture project.

Also, any idea about retexturing the world map and battle backgrounds? The grass and stuff looks bad.
It would be great to put in HD grass and clouds.

I think it looks better, but your versions neck looks like 1 giant pixel though lol I'd recommend turning off linear filtering since all it does is blur the image. still keep in mind chocos textures were made for the battle models, I have extracted the battle scene backgrounds etc and made them tonberry ready I'll pm you the files. As for the world map, Ill start on that after, the problem with the world map though is there's a lot of messed up mesh areas that nobody knows how to fix but we can still try new textures to see what it looks like.

2014-10-26:Hashmap updated on first post
I've been testing hashcodes for Selphie and Zell. But it's a pain to adapt Magochocobo's battle model textures to field models. What would be really helpfull is a tool to export the field models to have their UV coordinates.
So far i can give you the hashcodes but not the HD textures. If people are willing to help ( Devina , Mago...), could you paint the textures?

You can export battle models.  I would assume the UV coordinates would be the same

Field and battle have two different models which are different in detail similar as in FF7.
