Looks like they left some of the file formats the same as the KOTOR engine.

Despite some file path problems I was able to open some of the assets in the KOTOR modding tool.

Thought I'd point it out if anyone was interested in following up on this.

I don't really know if I have time to pick up another modding project. smile.gif

I have www.moviebattles.com
Fablemod
And some commerical work.

I might send this along to the main KOTOR guys though.

As for adding it to the lanpirates site I'd have to talk with Zushiba.

Looks like lanpirates.net is going to be hosting a Jade Empire Modding site.

I'll update this thread when we get up and going.

QUOTE(Fred Tetra)
I have done some experimentation to see what's common between the two games, and not surprisingly, there's a fair amount.

I probably won't add support to Kotor Tool itself, as it is already a pain to support two games that are quite similar; adding one that's less compatible would be to much trouble.

What I might do is create an offshoot of Kotor Tool that just works with Jade Empire.

Since I have about 630 hours of development time into Kotor Tool and no end in sight, I am not sure whether I can give up any additional time without cutting into my $-earning hours.

Perhaps I'll see how interested people are in it first. Do you know if any Jade Empire forums are around yet?

I want mods. Maybe I should just copy my reply to you from on GameFaqs lol.

It would be great to have anything extra. I loved the modded workbench. I was walking around with Revan's armor and a light saber on Telos. I was wondering how we could give access to items and I think it should be going to all merchants, or just the guy who joins your party. Its not really needed buy having access to all gems and techniques at the start, or chapter 2, would be cool.

That would just be the first step though. Hopefull people can get in new weapons, areas, skins and other stuff. I have no programming skils beyond BASIC A though. But I can be a good cheerer jester.gif

I'm technically an animator. But I have a small bit of coding knowledge.

Might want to crop out the mip maps, make your changes, save as DDS and drop in the override folder.

Might require some experimentation. Hopefully it isn't too difficult. I couldn't find any other player skin for some odd reason.

Even if the engine did support that. It would be a lot of work to implement.

On the plus side. First new skin...

Nope Lanpirates is dead. Fable was moved to www.fableTLCmod.com.

Jade Empire was dropped as there wasn't enough interest.

That's too bad. JE would be a great game to get into modding since there would some great ideas to shoot around. Speaking of which...are you still active in the Fable TLC forums Keshire? I got into Fable modding a few months back but haven't really done anything other than game.bin editing, retexturing, and some other minor things. Nothing major. I remember waaaaaaay back when that you had successfully extracted JE textures for editing. Do you still have this readily available? If you do, would you mind emailing them (if possible) to me? Send me a PM so i can give you my email address.

Thanks!

DT

EDIT: Or...even better, just let me know which file(s) are needed to be ftp'ed to my pc so i can just do them myself. I tried editing some .rim files under the \data directory using Kotor Tool but somehow, it comes back with all these gibbrish. Anyway, thanks again in advance for the help.
