    Hello, I have a problem : I have followed this tutorial : https://gbatemp.net/threads/pokemon-oras-model-editing-homebrew.401501/ but instead of changing the hero's textures, I changed the pokemon's textures.
    I edited all I wanted but when I use GARCTool to have the #_.garc, It takes me 8 hours to do it instead of 3 hours max. (I have a computer with 300 GB)
    Besides, I began again this stage four or five times but that never ended :

    - I always have this error message :
    [​IMG]
    It is saying that the process of one of the textures file is already running with another application, whereas it is false, I didn't open this file neither the folder somewhere else.

    OR It stops charging without any explanation.

    I really begin to discourage, and nobody else has this problem, please could you help me and tell me what 's wrong ?

    Thank you in advance :)

    I have seen this before. What I do is:
    Drag GARCTool into a/0/0
    Right click on 8_
    Uncheck read-only.
    Apply
    Open Garctool in a/0/0
    Don't drag the folder into the text bar, manually open it through "Open Folder"
    It usually takes about 5 hours.
    You will have to be patient.

    Ok, I forgot to mention that after it's done, just to be safe, I drag GARCTool out of the folder. I'm not sure how Pk3DS rebuilds the romfs. Better safe than sorry!

    Yes, it was what I was going to do after but thanks again ! ^^

    EDIT : I always have the same error message, I've just seen that the read-only ticked off by himself, when I begin again the stage, It is always ticked off and can't be unchecked... I don't know what to do...
    This is weird but the files inside the "8_" folder are unchecked for read-only, it is just the folder who is not unchecked ..

    If you uncheck on the 8_ folder and hit apply, it should do it to all. I looked at your image, none of the files in mine had a .bi extension, how did you decompress it?

    I decompressed it using GarcTool first, but I tryed again with a "8_" decompressed thanks to Garc Unpacker, but It doesn't work either : I have the same error message..
    Could you tell me exactly, the steps you followed to have your "8_" folder who can be recompressed ? (GarcTool or Garc Unpacker, and if you used Garc Unpacker, what boxes did you selected..)
    PS : In the screen, it is not a ".bi" file but a ".bin", the "n" is on the second sentence x)

    I decompressed it with GARCTool and it worked, also, it shouldn't be .bin, it should be things like .147, and .164.
    The way I decompressed it was by dragging 8 into GARCTool and then clicking process.
