Given that the instructions for the OP refers to tool that can not be downloaded as of this moment. Might as well Hightlight Mcindus' Tool instead for the 2013 steam release

Since I have to use the Hext process, I was wondering if you could send me the HEXT changes that I would need to put in for the various different languages?  That way EVERYONE can play with this beautiful mod.

EDIT:
In the meantime, I made a 'patcher' using Hext Tools (HextEdit) for the English version.  It makes this process as simple as:
1.   backup your main FF8_EN.exe (I just copy and .rar it or rename the copy "FF8_EN.exe.bak")
2.   move the original FF8_EN.exe into the 'FF8Steam_UVPatcher' folder
3.   run 'FF8Steam_UVPatcher.exe' AS ADMINISTRATOR
4.   check 'HextEdit.txt' to make sure it was patched (will say 12 items changed if successful)
5.   move the NEWLY PATCHED FF8_EN.exe back into your "/steamapps/common/FINAL FANTASY VIII/" parent folder.
6.   Enjoy the new UV's!!

Here's the file:
FF8 Steam UV Patcher (English)

it does, you have to click the word 'downloads' on the right side of the home page, the 'other software' page will eventually have direct download links and a description of each tool

Ok, I'm here just for fun!
I've tried the patch at this thread: https://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=19432.0

All works just fine! But I'm curious like a monkey  :-P
I've found different offsets to manually-patch the file FFVIII_EFIGS.dll.

Maybe 'cause I'm playing the latest update.
This is mine:
Code: [Select]
0x910E08 - 02
0x910E0E - FE
0x910E6A - 02
0x910E70 - FE
0x910EC7 - 02
0x910ECD - FE
0x910F26 - 02
0x910F2C - FE
0x910F83 - 02
0x910F89 - FE
0x910FC9 - 02
0x910FCF - FE

All those values (02 and FE) must be changed to 00. Who want to manually-patch the file at now, I think that need to search this offsets.
Everything found thanks to the Maki work and the use of CheatEngine. Thank you buddy!
