Hmmm... I think I prefer the 2D ones over the 3D. :-)

Nice to see some work being done on 8 though!

Nice work you’ve done there, I’ve never tried to change anything in ff8 but I wanted to change the in game Squall with a Dissidia one for some time now. So if you know of a way to input and output 3d models to ff8 perhaps I could give it a try.

Well I have been making 1 or 2 of these for Rinoa and I must say I am enjoying this mod.  I am sure some of you feel the angelo I made froma  real dog is too realistic, but if you look at it once it has been downsized and placed into the game...i think it goes ok?

using aalis driver in window mode, you can now see how it looks properly :)

When I first saw this I was concerned (3d-like pics in a "2D" game?)

But after playing with it, it makes totally sense. Thanks for your work, looks great!


Can I ask you how did you mod FF8 TEX files?

Re: Final Fantasy VIII (Modder's Awakening) *release*
« Reply #23 on: 2009-07-30 08:32:21 »
I used a program called Omega..
it converts all the Tex. files into BMP..
then i did all my work in photoshop and paint.
then i use omega again to convert the BMP. images into a .tex file..
:D...

*(WOOT... 777 views.. that is a lucky number.. :P)*

Thanks.
Can you tell me what you plan to modify?
I also wanted to mod some files, but I don't want to work for nothing
