    I really want to use texture hacks and I want to start with a game like monster hunter generations since there is millions of textures to choose from... I really want to edit textures on my weapons... it would be so badass walking into an online hunters hub with badass unique custom textured weapons! where do I start and is it like opening the file in paint and coloring it then saving and injecting back into the system??? how would this work??

    Experience with custom texturing stuff has taught me that even if you do manage to custom texture something, only you will be able to see that texture changing, since you'd be editing the romfs/exefs(?) of the game, playing online for other would make no difference. they would see you with the default weapon unless they are using the same hack as you are.

    Textures are just the graphical looks of the weapon, the color and the "texture" they wear, without any texture they'd look the same, just a shiny colored mess. What you're saying is something like model changing and that's a whole other level of hacking all together.

    Example, if you managed to put a rathian switch axe texture into a zinogre lance it would just be a green lance with spikes looking like a rathian.

    These doubleposts are driving me nuts...

    Anyway, you'd need to find a way to RE'd the textures, i think people have been able to do it on pokemon games, but i don't know if the format is the same...

    I just want a great sword to look like its made of cheese or a lance that looks like a dildo... I don't care for models atm... as long as I get cheesy weapons (no pun intended... oh what am I saying? I definitely intended for a pun)

    plus, can you do that sort of thing with ohana3ds? its already have been done for games like mario kart, smash bros and pokemon...
