Default [REL] SH4 Modding Tools and Utilities Package

**Released!**

SH4 Modding Tools and Utilities Package


All of the files in this package are freeware and may be freely redistributed. I am not the author of most of the files in this package.


Package contains the following files for use with

SH4:


dds_converter:

A good and easy to use program that allows you to view and convert .dds testure files for modding. See my included, step-by-step instruction for converting SH4 .dds files.



jsgme_setup:

An excellent, easy to use mod installer.



SH3MiniTweaker_build104:

Time Traveller's SH3 and SH4 modding program. Allows various SH4 .cfg, .dat, and .zon files to be modded.



SH4 Aircraft .zon and .sim Tweak Files:


The name says it all. For use with Mini Tweaker program.



SH4 Sub .sim and .zon Tweak Files:

The name says it all. For use with Mini Tweaker program.



SH4_Ship.sim_Tweak_Files:

The name says it all. For use with Mini Tweaker program.



SH4 Sub Guns .sim Tweak Files:

The name says it all. For use with Mini Tweaker program.


-AI Sensors.dat Tweak file:

Allows modding of AI sensors using TT SH3 Mini Tweaker program



TweakFilesSet:


Tweak file package for SH3. Many of these tweak files will work with SH4, but not all. If they won't work, you need to use a hex editor and find the absolute hex address for each line and change them by modding the existing Tweak File.



xvi32:

A good, easy to use hex editor.



nvdxt_tools:

A Photo Shop plugin that allows direct modding of .dds files without conversion



I thought I would go ahead and try to put together a decent set of SH4 modding tools and utilities into one package. They are spread all over the internet.

This way, it's a little bit easier.

Now THAT is a cool thang.

I've been looking around trying to figure out what tools I need and where they are. This will give me something to do for a while since the actual game CTDs me or BSODs me at some point every single time I use it.

This converter also works with Paintshop Pro Ver. 6, which I use, and probably the newer versions.

Just noticed that in you tweak pack the file for the balao_zon is pointing to the wrong sub, think it's one of the jap subs.

Hi NvDrifter... !

The template file for Balao class...seems to do not create the "copy of XXX.zon" file.... other templtes do it, but that for the Balao Class doesnt.

I am not worry for the back-up file... i made them, but i am woory if the file works in the correct way...

Can you check this behaviour in your installation please ?
