    Welcome to yet another FE: Fates Mod! CFW is not needed anymore, but is recommended. This mod adds in 22 new units to the game, some are bosses or npcs, while others are characters from FE: Awakening. Here is a video that shows off v2:

    Hidden Truths Anankos would be difficult at best, downright frustrating at worst. But Arete would be entirely possible and probably easy. I'll add it in the next version.

    There's actually a model as seen in Hidden Truths 2. I wouldn't be surprised if DeathChaos would be able to do the same thing as his Before Awakening. However, I don't think there's any head model at all, not that I saw

    Playable Anankos would be possible, but some sorcery like human Lillith would be needed combined with some of what Deathchaos did with the Awakening characters. Way out of my league (for now).

    Human Lilith was actually in the game files and it was connected to another Lilith ID. DeathChaos could make the Human Anakos, it's just that I haven't seen any head model, but a body model. It may be somewhere else, but it really depends if DeathChaos has the time

    An experiment. I talked a little about him in the FEFTwiddler thread. I don't think I'll release him though because the modifications made to him could ruin online.

    How many units exactly does your DLC have?

    If you look at my latest version, I joined them all because I used a Dispos file which allowed me to fit together a lot of units into a single DLC, you could do the same with yours and then you could give them weapons, all you'd need to do is grab the script from mine (I made that one myself actually, although I'm still not to great on script editing), which instead of giving a single unit it loads the Dispos file, then within the Dispos file they were given a spawn flag of 40 17 and the location was set to FF FF FF FF, what this does is, instead of spawning these units, it just forces them into your party.

    I actually finished this College semester and am now enjoying my free summer time before next semester starts in August, and I'm basically almost finished with the Revelation Unit Buff patch and just need testing done to ensure nothing breaks.

    That said, finding the model won't really get us anywhere if we can't find an AID, Human Lilith already had an AID because she appears in some cutscenes on chapters 1-3 I believe, so unless we can find an AID for Human Anankos we can't really accomplish anything, we COULD make an AID for him, but we'd still need to find his Head Model+Textures and his Hair+Textures and then Figure out if he has a Voice ID assigned or not.

    Human Anakos uses a head model from the game. His other stuff is in the DLC but he wouldn't have voices/head map sprites like human Lilith.

    Could you send me (probably by pm) some more info on dispos file editing? I'd like to be a little more knowledgeable before attempting to use it.

    You're welcome. I knew people would like it since even I only enjoyed grinding for so long with these things.

    I can just post the notes here.

    The header data is the usual stuff for the bin files.

    At 0x20, there are a few blocks that tell the game which blocks belong to which team label, these blocks are 0xC in size.
    First 4 bytes are a pointer to the team label, for example, the very first block at 0x20 will always start with a pointer to "Player".
    Next 4 bytes are a pointer to where the Dispos blocks for this team label start, each block is 0x8C in size
    Next 4 bytes tell the game how many blocks to read starting from the starting location specified in the previous 4 bytes, all of these will belong to this team

    For the Dispos blocks themselves, here's the Mapping;
    [​IMG]

    Within the blocks, the following things need to have pointers in the pointers table;
    Start of block;
    Every IID label pointer must have a pointer too;
    All 4 AI Type labels must also have pointers.

    If you make a simple block, a character with a single weapon, that would be 6 pointers, pointer to where the block starts (1), pointer to the characters IID label pointer (2) and all 4 AI Type label pointers (2+4=6).

    A few things, all AI labels must be separated by 4 empty bytes of 00s, and even if you don't assign any flags to the weapons, you still need to have 4 bytes between each IID, because 00 00 00 00 is still a valid flag value.
