Samson: Inquisition Mesh

7/11/20 Update: Flipped normal around and fixed his neck seams. Also wanted to give a HUGE shoutout to Makacha for pointing out how to fix a very pesky, infuriating eyeball problem with porting heads. Like, amazing - NOW we can port headmeshes into the game and retain their location and therefore making the porting go faster and if needed, retain some degree of hairs and helmets fitting properly. It might still need adjustments so if you see the eyes coming out of their sockets during any cutscenes, please take a screen so I know where and I can make some tweaks.  

How does one follow up on Cullen's headmorph port? By porting bit player Samson's head of course! Ported Samson's unique headmesh from Dragon Age: Inquisition into Dragon Age 2 with fully functional bones, face animations, and unique face textures including emotions, eyes and hair. 

This mod is totally independent of any other mods. All assets are straight from Bioware with the exception of some modifications to their DA2 emotion masks and norm map to fit to the Samson mesh. 

This mod uses a unique eye and hair mesh/textures for Samson and does not use any tints except for his hair. Also, if you wish to change Samson's hair mesh, it will have to be a hair specially made for this mesh - though I decided to keep Samson's default hair mesh, it had to be tweaked to fit. 

The transfer of the mesh was not entirely seamless so there might be some tweaks that need to be made to account for certain animations. 


Installation

Open the attached .7z file and extract the file "Samson Inquisition Head" to the following location:

C:\Users\[YOUR USER NAME]\Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age 2\packages\core\override\

(this is the default location, if you have it in a different place, put the file wherever you keep your override) 

That's it!
