Vortex support for Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age

Simple as that. Extension adds support for FF12. It's still an early version, but it should work just fine. Extension searches for ff12data directory and auto-installs it. Of course FOMOD installer is supported if you need it.

Current features:
  • installation/uninstallation/enabling/disabling/purging
  • automatic VBF archive patching via external tools (modified specifically to work with Vortex)
  • automatic FileSizeTable_XX.fst patching for all supported languages
  • any mod can be uninstalled at any time without breaking anything
  • conflict resolution via Vortex tools

If you want to get back to vanilla game, either disable all mods or simply purge them all (this should save you redownloading 30GB file again).

For advanced users there is a possibility to switch the extension into non-merge mode (installing mods into separate directories, which is faster, but mods can be uninstalled only in reverse order of installation, just as in case of Draklab). In this mode conflict detection doesn't work. Switch only if you know exactly what you're doing.

  • restart Vortex

Known Issues

Do not launch the game using Vortex. The game will freeze once it starts loading a map (although, you can just alt-tab and close Vortex, which will unfreeze the game). For now just launch the game from steam, as always ;) .
