    Skyward Sword Hacks - Texture and Models Editing: [INFO]
    The game is compressed in some file, with a LZ compression,

    #What you need:
    -LZ decompress/compress

    -Brres, texture viewer/edit and .arc extract/repack
    (You need SZS modifier CTools library)
    Dowload here http://chadderz.is-a...r/download.aspx
    -The application requires the Dot Net Framework 2.0
    If the application cannot display 3d models, please download the following update for directx. http://rapidshare.co...499/dxsetup.zip

    [OPTIONAL:
    -Use 3ds Max to import ".obj" models extracted "from" szs modier (.brres)

    --------------------------------------------------------

    #Where to find things:

    Link's models and texture Brres:
    -DVD root: Object/ ObjectPack.arc.LZ/ oarc/ Alink.arc

    Link's tools and weaponsBrres:
    -DVD root: Object/ ObjectPack.arc.LZ/ oarc/ PLCompItem.arc (are compressed in LZ)

    [STAGE]: Skyloft Brres Guide:
    The skyloft MODEL brres location is:
    Dvd root: Stage/F000/F000_stg_l0.arc.LZ/rarc/F000_r00.arc/g3d/room.brres

    Some skyloft Texture location are in:
    Dvd root: Stage/F000/F000_stg_l0.arc.LZ/rarc/g3d/stage.brres (all the texture are for skyloft and other models)

    Other model and texture for skyloft:
    Dvd root: Stage/F000/F000_stg_l0.arc.LZ/oarc


    GUIDE: How to use SZS modier:

    SZS modifier
    [​IMG]

    Open SZS modifier Ver 2.5.2.0
    GUIDE:
    -open .brres (u want to edit)
    -open texture folder
    -click on 1 texture, and on the right side you will see the texture (look this image up)
    -now double click on the image and a new window will pop up
    -now you can export or import the texture you want (but respect width-height of the original texture!)
    -then, close that window
    -on szs modifier click file and then save.

    Now you have the brres with your own texture. :lol:

    can't wait to see 5000 projects started with people starting teams and having sign-ups and creating forums with the intention of customizing the game, with none of them actually accomplishing anything at all.

    zelda wii classic remake!
    extra-impossible level zelda!
    zelda with link skinned like zanondorf!

    Can you import models and textures from other games? Can't wait to see Leon/Jill using the Skyward Sword.

    Unfortunately, doombringer seems to keep his tools for himself.
    Look at Xenoblade hack thread, he never explained or provided anything, nor even cared to answer what the users asked.
    He just want fame and show that HE can do it.

    So, don't expect too much. It's more a Proof of concept.

    Just prove I'm wrong and all users will be happy.

    If he is like that, it would be sad :/ I was hopping to take a look at all that beta content by myself...


    Anyway, I was able to extract the LZ files with GBALZSS, but it seems the .arc (looks like a U8 with multiple arcs inside) it extracts is corrupted or must be opened by another program... i'm stuck now...

    Yeah it sure seems that way. Damn shame about Xenoblade, it looked very fun.

    I think you could use CT2 (a tool for Nintendo DS) that allows you to decompress/compress LZ type 0x11 (where the first byte of the compressed file shows the number 0x11). Once you get the decompressed file, you could use that tool again to extract/export all the arc files inside that decompressed file. Then use SZS Modifier or other tool that could read/modify those models/textures inside those arc files. Here is an example of the texture of Zelda_Body in the Zelda.arc file.

    I think this should get worked on; I also like the other NSMB custom hacks or Wiims hacks for mario kart they are pretty sweet.


    P.S. I have almost every Custome NSMB out there; some are almost impossible to get especially the ones from dark umbra.
