[FF7PC] AVALANCHE ARISEN Magic Textures
« on: 2018-07-13 18:55:48 »


Are you using upscaled magic textures? Do you always wish that they were just a tiny bit better? Well look no further as I am now in the process of re-texturing the magic and effects. This will be a mostly complete retex of all the magic textures (some ill just waifu and smooth out for ease / they are already good textures) And will also include several different limit break textures, coming in a variety of color variants as well.


Ill be updating every couple of days with some new screenshots or general update news. I don't expect this to take more than a month or so but we'll see. You can come watch me work on these almost daily at https://www.twitch.tv/uprisen


Official Start Date: 7/14/2018

Current progress : EVERYTHING worth editing from start of game till Airbuster is finished.

Just a little trick to find the texture files the game uses is to turn on modpath but have no files in it. When u run the game and use the spell it will record in app.log what files are missing. Also look at team avalanche for some redone magic stuff i did back in the day if you want to just use those so you dont repeat work.

Aali's driver has also a dump texture option.  But I don't  know  what the  right command was  in the opengl.cfg.

[00000749] [BATTLE] Begin main battle loop
[00000776] ERROR: invalid bitdepth
[00000776] INFO: tried to load D:\Games\steamapps\common\FINAL FANTASY VII/mods/Textures/SEFFECT3_25.png, falling back to palette 0
[00000776] ERROR: invalid bitdepth
this is my app log when trying to remake magic textures. does anyone know what exactly it means by invalid bitdepth?

anyone have a clue what exactly this means? I got this just from putting satsukis seffects in my texture folder to help narrow down what files im missing.

Also the little balls for Fire 3 + all dont show a missing texture in the app log so i geuss theres no way to change them with aalis driver.

edit: found a solution, can just make the models with the texture baked on and it works in game. no texture file needed.

When saving your files they need to be a 32bit png. Any other bitdepth with throw an error

And if i remember correctly the little balls for fire3 are on one of the texture sheets already but it has been years since i redid it

I dont know how the pngs ended up no 32 bit but after re exporting them in gimp it fixed it. The balls are actually their own pre textured model. The ice 1 spell is the same thing. The model itself has a texture but in kimera you cannot change or add a texture. Tsuna and myself found a way to assign textures to them though so theres literally nothing in game that we cant put a new texture on now.

If the model can be extracted and converted into a 3ds or obj file then it can be changed.

And there is the problem. Until today, it's not possible to extract the extra packed special event files inside of snowboard-us.lgp.  There is also kage.dat and mark.dat which currently can't be edited.
