About this mod

v2.0 adds the ability to edit face textures and default body textures.

Requirements
Permissions and credits
Update:
Removed v2.1 due to lighting shader errors.
Update V2.1:
v2.1 fixes texture replacement during mystic arts.

Update V2.0:

v2.0 adds the ability to edit face textures and default body textures. To specify the body textures that are editable are:

  • Alphen: ocean blue battle garb, sincleaver armor
  • Dohalim: il Qaras Traditional Attire
  • Kisara: Gaurdsman Armor
  • Law: Silver Wolf Vest
  • Rinwell: Inherited Coat
  • Shionne: Noble Scarlet
In addition new ini files have been added for not only the new textures but have been split up to give more control over what to enable/disable. If you feel that your game performance has lowered, commenting out/ taking out include statements can help. This is what the current include statements look like:

 include = ReplacementTextures\Rinwell\RinwellEyeTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Rinwell\RinwellHairTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Rinwell\RinwellFaceTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Rinwell\body\Inherited Coat\RinwellInheritedCoatTextureOverride.ini

 include = ReplacementTextures\Shionne\ShionneEyeTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Shionne\ShionneHairTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Shionne\ShionneFaceTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Shionne\body\Noble Scarlet\ShionneNobleScarletTextureOverride.ini

 include = ReplacementTextures\Alphen\AlphenEyeTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Alphen\AlphenFaceTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Alphen\AlphenHairTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Alphen\AlphenMaskTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Alphen\body\ocean blue battle garb\AlphenOceanBlueBattleGarbTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Alphen\body\sincleaver armor\AlphenSincleaverArmorTextureOverride.ini

 include = ReplacementTextures\Law\LawEyeTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Law\LawFaceTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Law\LawHairTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Law\body\Silver Wolf Vest\LawSilverWolfVestTextureOverride.ini

 include = ReplacementTextures\Kisara\KisaraEyeTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Kisara\KisaraFaceTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Kisara\KisaraHairTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Kisara\body\Gaurdsman Armor\KisaraGaurdsmanArmorTextureOverride.ini

 include= ReplacementTextures\Dohalim\DohalimEyeTextureOverride.ini
 include= ReplacementTextures\Dohalim\DohalimFaceTextureOverride.ini
 include= ReplacementTextures\Dohalim\DohalimHairTextureOverride.ini
 include= ReplacementTextures\Dohalim\body\il Qaras Traditional Attire\DohalimilQarasTraditionalAttireTextureOverride.ini

Installation is the same. Version 1.0 information continues below.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------





To Install:

After downloading the mod, open the folder and extract the contents to Tales of Arise\Arise\Binaries\Win64 (where the .exe is).


How to use:
Replacement textures are found in the ReplacementTextures folder, separated by a folder for each character. Edit the existing example texture or replace it with your own with the same name. 

If you want to change it to inject a different image type (png, jpg), go into the character ini folder (ex: ReplacementTextures\Alphen\AlphenTextureOverride.ini) and change the ResourceReplaceTexture at the top from a .dds file to a different image extension. Make sure the file name listed in ResourceReplaceTexture matches the name of the texture you want to inject in.


How to disable texture replacement for certain characters:

By default I set it up to inject similar dds textures to the ones the engine expects internally though the final output is slightly different. If you want to stop the tool doing any injection work on a certain character (and just have the textures go back to normal again) go into the d3dx.ini file, look for the include statements under “exclude_recursive = DISABLED*” and either comment out or remove the  entire “include =**** “ line for the respective character that you want to return to normal.

This is what the include statements initially look like:
include = ReplacementTextures\Rinwell\RinwellTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Shionne\ShionneTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Alphen\AlphenTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Law\LawTextureOverride.ini
 include = ReplacementTextures\Kisara\KisaraTextureOverride.ini
 include= ReplacementTextures\Dohalim\DohalimTextureOverride.ini


Notes:
  • If you want to use this with the hud mod, move the include statements from the d3dx.ini file and place them in the same spot in the d3dx.ini file that was for the hud mod. Then cut/copy the entire ReplacementTextures folder and place that in the same place where the exe or ShaderFixes folder is.
  • To get the right injected textures to show up in the right place, you may have to get the game camera up close to the characters face so it loads in the highest LOD textures, which is what the injection tool mainly overrides. You only need to do this once after you load in the game since the highest LOD versions typically stay active.
  • When editing a texture and looking at it in game, you may find that the image looks faded out/brighter than what you expected it to be, make sure to darken the image to actually get the in-game result to match more closely to what you wanted.
  • Created and tested on Nvidia hardware.

To Uninstall:
Either remove the mod files manually or use the uninstall.bat file.
