[FF8PC-STEAM] Forcing a character to wear a certain costume, is it possible?

(1/4) > >>

Hello there guys!

My intention is to, on the Steam PC version of Final Fantasy 8, enforce a particular character model at any time during the game. A practical example would be Selphie appearing in the game with the Uniform model or SeeD uniform model instead of the casual one. This is partially achieved via Hyne, but that only changes Selphie into her Uniform model during battles, and not the model used in the map.

I also tried replacing the casual modded textures with the uniform textures, but only achieved a glitch. The character model itself appears similar, so wouldn't a plain texture replacement achieve the result? Would it be possible to edit the Selphie uniform textures so that it is rendered correctly as a replacement for the casual textures?

Cheers.

I can tell you the reason that simply changing the flag on your save state didn't work. The characters's alternate outfits are completely different characters in the game scripts. They don't share the same event logic, and they don't appear in every area.

I noticed that there is a battle version for both casual and uniform models and a map version for both casual and uniform models. Enforcing the texture using tonberry causes the uniform to display incorrectly (eyes near the arms and skirt textures on the head, it's weird!). Is the "casual outfit" model for the characters the "alternate model"? Or it's the contrary?

The problem here is model related, as long as I can't entirely force the game to use a model, I can't do much. Isn't there a way to simply unpack/repack the file containing the model itself, replacing with the other model file?! Even if one can't open or edit said model file, replacing one file with the other should work, wouldn't it?

Thanks

Experimenting here, added a back zipper to Selphie's casual texture, it's easy :P

Would be possible to at least ADAPT the uniform textures to fit the casual model, but wouldn't look the same however. I wish for some way to replace the entire model with the other one!  :-P
