Final Fantasy VI PC/Steam Modding

(1/6) > >>

So ff6 came out on PC today and the game doesn´t look very good with the new sprites aliasing problems etc etc, you can check out this article pointing out most things wrong with this port here (http://www.fortressofdoors.com/doing-an-hd-remake-the-right-way-ffvi-edition/)
Unlike FFV all the files, except fonts and controller icons, are stored on one big 700 Mb file, this file format is .obb which is an android file i´m not sure

Someone on the steam forums already tried to decompile the file but to no avail (http://steamcommunity.com/groups/ff-modding/discussions/1/487877107133753844/)

So is anyone here interested in modding this game ?

This is something I was hoping to look into in a month or two when I have the money to do so, if nobody beats me to it. I suspect the Steam forums are more likely to gather the right talent for this job, though.

So, this is a lazy ass port. Its garbage, and various communities are scrambling to make it worth playing.

I am seeing a lot of people who seemingly want to help but don't have the cash to buy the game.

If this sounds like you, then let me know. I haven't done reddit gifts this year, I can afford to gift a few lumps of FF6 coal if someone can help turn it into a diamond.

If you're waiting due to a money factor, how much would this cost to get this done, and how much time does it take?

Christmas has left me too broke to buy the game, that's the only financial factor for me. Time can be difficult to gauge without looking into the game's files first; without seeing the formats things are in and how everything's stored, I can't even begin to estimate how long such a task would take.

I'm probably not the best person for this job anyway. My experience with these sorts of things is fairly limited; I'm far more useful at audio modding than reverse engineering file formats. Not to mention my free time will be fairly limited even when I can afford a copy of it, as I was recently cast in a play and rehearsals start in January.

Edit: From what I have read, the game's data isn't just packaged in a binary blob, but also encrypted. That alone puts it past my purview.

Well, my offer stands to anyone. I'll also be posting this on reddit /r/FinalFantasy.
