    Impossible due to lack of tools, essentially the PS2 model is in a completely different format and we have no way to insert/rig custom models for DQ8. This mod was done by editing the default 3DS models (and textures) WITHOUT altering the vert count.

    Thank you for telling me this and not shooting me down, man.

    I have been wanting to use the Dragon Quest 8 and Dragon Quest 7 models for quite some time, but, I have run into quite a few problems...

    I'll talk about the problems with the Dragon Quest 8 models for now.

    Anyone else know where the extra facial textures for the models are (closed eyes, open mouth, etc)? I've been looking for them for a while now and found nothing, except for a bunch of .xbb files which I think could contain the textures. Also, in Ohana3DS and when exported, the Dragon Quest VIII models' clothing texture goes all funny.
    Screenshot 2019-06-29 02.46.45. Screenshot 2019-06-29 02.46.53. Screenshot 2019-06-29 02.48.31. Screenshot 2019-06-29 02.50.37. Screenshot 2019-06-29 02.51.04. Screenshot 2019-06-29 02.51.18.

    If anyone is curious as to know where I want to use these models, I want to use them in MMD (MikuMikuDance).

    The facial expressions are all textures, not actual model animations so you just need to look through the textures for them.
    As for the "funny" texture, that's because the model is two-faced, meaning that different parts of the texture are applied on both sides of the model, you need to sort viewing two-faced meshes in whatever 3D software you're using.

    Are you able to restore the party's super high tension mode/models from ps2? ( "Super sayian" 8 etc )

    It's so weird that THIS of all things got axed, SE doesn't get at all Level-5's stylistic choices
    They even prevented DQ11 from getting cool pep up designs too
