Other Modifications / [MOD PACK] Collection of old mods
« on: Today at 15:10:49 »
Hey, I uploaded a pack with some of the mods I have. Not all are on KirmiziPerfect, there are some from German and Russian forums or from old titanquest.net. Most of the play-as-creature mods are not adapted for AE, I plan to do it when i have time. Enjoy ;)

Other Modifications / [MOD] Battle Nymphs
« on: 11 June 2018, 18:13:28 »


I made this small mod which replaces the female character with a nymph. Features and info:
- Load the mod from custom game. It doesn't matter which character you choose, you will be redirected to the main game, where you can play normally.
- Added a summonable vendor, which sells nymph skins only. To summon it, go to Unlock Content and type code "nymph". An flower amulet will drop.
- No armor looks good on nymph mesh, so they are made invisible. You will see them equipped in inventory, but not on your character.
- The nymph uses human animation for the most part. Some of the staff animations are remade to fix some wonky looking stuff.
- Added a Database Addon Version. It doesn't block achievements and work with most Custom Game mods. How to use: After you download the archive, extract it and open "battle_nymphs'' folder. Inside you will see folder Creatures. Copy it to your "Titan Quest Anniversary Edition/Database" folder, and place it next to database.arz. This will change the female character to a nymph in the main game AND in mods. Enjoy ;)

Texture & Skin Modding / [MOD] Blond Haired Girl
« on: 13 May 2018, 07:07:24 »



This mod changes the base female hair and the hair on all female helmets to blond.
The mod comes in two versions:
1. CustomMapsVersion - it is used as a normal loadable mod. Put folder "blonde_girl_full" into your CustomMaps folder. Launch the mod from Custom Quest Menu. The mod will "jump" to the main game where you can choose a character.
2. AddonVersion - if you want to make blonde char your default, place the folders inside AddonVersion in your game instalation Database folder (next to database.arz). Play the game normally or with mods, doesnt matter, the hair will stay blond. To unistall, just delete the folders.

Use the Source Files if you want to merge this mod with another mod. It's allowed to include in any mod, just dont forget to mention me in the credits ;)

Download:
The mod should work fine both with Immortal Throne and Anniversary Edition. Enjoy!

The idea of going pure dex was always tempted me, but the only time i tried was with Illusionist in LoC. With all the pets i can't say if the build was good or not. Anyone tried this in vanilla? And what class did/would you choose?

Installation and Tools / Tools Database - Links & Descriptions
« on: 10 March 2018, 12:22:16 »
Ok, after a big cleanup of files, I made a database of all the TQ related tools i have untill now. Some are saved from old forum, others are not directly connected to Titan Quest, but can come handy to someone. Here is a link to the database:


I'll make a list later and add some descriptions and maybe separate links.
If you know a tool that is better, newer or you think it should be included in the database, I'll update the list. Or if you can tell the name of a creator or description thats missing.
Note: All the tools listed here are freeware. I won't add any payed programs in the list. If you are searching for one, buy it.

ANIMATION TOOLS:

Spoiler for Hiden:
1. TQ Animation Tools 1.0
Creator: Tamchi
Description: A pack of several tools which allow you to edit the game .ANM files.
List of tools:
TQ Animation Callback Editor
TQ Animation Combiner
TQ Animation Composer (Description by Tamchi) - This tool allows you to combine animations to make new ones. You need .NET Framework 4.0 to use this.
You can load up to two different animations and choose the bones and callbacks you want to keep. You can choose how to shorten/lengthen the animations if the frame counts don't match. it automatically selects bones in the second animation if you uncheck them in the first or they don't exist yet. (Works in both directions.) You can't crop/scale animations yet, but it should be really easy to write a gui for that: Most of the necessary functions are already included in the library. You still have to use notepad if you want to edit the callbacks though. I plan to extend the program to let you rename bones and create new callbacks.
Resizing a single animation would require a different gui approach.
Edit: Finding focused items in WPF on right-click is completely crazy. I will add the editing functions in a different program.
TQ Animation Cropper
TQ Animation Specials
ARC TOOLS:

Spoiler for Hiden:
1. ARC Encryptor 4.1.2 (32 & 64 bit)
Creator: Elfe
Description: Arc Encryptor is a GUI for the game's archivetool that lets you pack and unpack .ARC files.

2. ARZ Explorer 1.0.1
Creator: Vorbis/EJFudd
Description: A tool for viewing and unpacking .ARC and .ARZ (Database) files.

3. ARC Unpack 1.0
Creator: Tamchi
Description: A tool for extracting multiple .ARC files at once. Just drag and drop the ARCs over ArcUnpack.exe

ART MANAGER

Spoiler for Hiden:
1. Art Manager 1.6
Creator: Elfe
Description:
It can now always with the option "Delete Unassociated Resources" be formed without having to restart the AM every time again. (Tools -> delete unassociated resources).
No other program is needed to run this version of the AM, not even version 1.5. I emphasize once again that version 1.5 and 1.6 are not consecutive versions, but work independently.
Added tool "File Summary". (Tools -> File Summary)
Added "Status Report" tool. (Tools -> Status Report)
Option to compress the models added. (Tools -> Convert Textures to Compressed)
Integrated option window integrated. (Tools -> Options)
New - icons
New Font for Popup Window (I can understand it well, if you want the old one back, because the new one does make some things harder to read, if desired I will upload a version without changed font, if necessary).
Templates Editor extended. (It seems a par of the added options are still not working properly, maybe it's better if you do not use this editor for that yet.)
Explanations of DBR entries on / off. This option can be switched on / off in the DB Editor in the menu bar under "View -> Descriptions". (For more information and extended explanations, there is a post here: http://titanquest.4fansites.de/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10994 )
MAX server repaired! The installation includes a file that fixes this problem and fixes the option to convert .max files to .msh / .amn files. To enable this fix, a little extra manual work is required, the instructions for which are available at the installation later in this post.
.Msh files can be archived (taken from 1.5, auto and self-created assets possible.)
.wav files can be archived again (note for violos: wish fulfilled Smile)
Other features that I may have forgotten.

Installations
Download and run the installer. Please select the installation path of your TQIT's for the installation, if you choose another directory, the AM will only give an error message at startup. The main features are already installed, so the following things need to be done to fully install the MAX Server:
Open the following path with your Windows Explorer: User \ Documents \ my games \ titan quest immortal throne \ tools.ini and open the Tool.ini file.
You will see several options for the toolset. Those who are interested in us are called "3dsmaxserver". The installation has a new file called MAX_Server.exe installed in the installation path of TQIT. Please write this hinder the option. For me it looks like this:
3dsmaxserver = D: \ Program Files (x86) \ THQ \ Titan Quest Immortal Throne \ MAX_Server.exe
Save the file and run the Art Manager 1.6.exe.
Congratulations, the installation is done. I hope that makes modding easier / faster and probably. It is easier for some newcomers to find their way.
All rights to the code of this program are still going to THQ / ILE. Please let me know if I have breached EULA rules or contractual arrangements. In that case I will delete everything immediately.

Note: To install, place ArtManager 1.6 in your TQIT base folder. It was made for vanilla Immortal Throne v1.1 only, but relinking the Tools directory and switching the TQIT's database.arz with TQAE/Ragnarok one can do the trick.

TEXTURING TOOLS

Spoiler for Hiden:
1. Awesome Bump 3.14
Description: AwesomeBump is designed to generate normal, height, specular or ambient occlusion, metallic, roughness and other textures from a single image. Features:
Converts normal map to height map (bump map and vice versa)
Extract the bump from the arbitrary image
Calculate ambient occlusion and specularity of image
Perspective tranformation of the image
Creating seamless texture (simple linear filter, random mode, or mirror filter)
Generate roughness and metallic textures (different types of surface analysis are available)
Real time tessellation is available

Edit one texture which contains different materials

Mix two bumpmaps together with normal map mixer

2. Grid Extractor
Creator: Tamchi
Description:This tool can quickly extract large amounts of texture grids per drag-and-drop. You can specify the pen width, foreground and background colors and the image size too, if you use the command line. The defaults are 512x512 pixel image size and a 1 pixel black on transparent pen.
This program's way of calculating the coords is different from the one in MeshDrawCS, so the result should be more accurate. You still won't see any improvement in MeshDraw because of it's bugged texture coords.
Note: You can paint on the grid directly or place it as a layer over existing texture in a painting program (I use Paint.NET) for more accuracy.

3. Hugin Panorama Stitcher 2018.0.0
Description: You can use this to make a panoramic screens for Titan Quest main menu. I stiched my menus manually, but it can be usefull to someone. Examples of normal vs panoramic image:

Left - normal; Right - panoramic. The trick is altering the image so when you cut it on half and switch horizontally left and right part, the two parts "stitch" without visible border between them. The clouds must continue to go smoothly when the halfs are normaly arranged or with switched places, sea line must be perfectly horizontal, etc.

It started development as an undergraduate college senior design project mentored by Microsoft, and is now maintained and developed by Rick Brewster. Originally intended as a free replacement for the Microsoft Paint software that comes with Windows, it has grown into a powerful yet simple image and photo editor tool. It has been compared to other digital photo editing software packages such as Adobe® Photoshop®, Corel® Paint Shop Pro®, Microsoft Photo Editor, and The GIMP.

5. Sage Thumbs 2.0.0.23

Other Modifications / Alternative Music for Titan Quest
« on: 04 December 2017, 00:51:46 »
This is an atempt to make the music of the game closer to the spirit of the ancient world. I made it mostly for myself, but i'm sharing it anyway, someone else might like it. Only the first part (Greece) is ready. Here is the link:


To replace vanilla music, put folder "Music" in your Database folder. If you dont like any of the tracks, just rename/delete them from the inside folder.
Not all the tracks are replaced, but most greek cities/towns have new themes. I hope you enjoy this compilation :)

10. Maybe there are other changes, but these are all I know of

Known issues:

- The mod is compatible with AE, but not really adapted to it

To install, place TQSV folder in your Custommaps folder.
