    What up fellas, it' been a minute. I've recently been messing around with modding the RPCPS3 version just to see if it was possible and if so, just exactly how much was possible. Turns out we can mod pretty much everything in this game. Shout outs to Thesch28 for the heads up on the music files. We're able to not only modify the music files but models and textures as well. with the help of this a program called MikuMikumodel https://github.com/blueskythlikesclouds/MikuMikuLibrary/releases
    I was even able to swap out one of Dural's random stages for the secret License Challenge Space version but it's still very buggy: You can see it in action in this clip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ur-uRvjgR9E&feature=youtu.be

    The tools you'll need:

    - For modding the music: Download PES Sound file converter https://www.moddingway.com/file/5716.html This program will allow you to convert the mp3 files into ADX files allowing you to customize your music.
    Once modified, you would just need to replace the music file name to whichever stage or sound effect that you want. Make sure to backup the bgm folder just in case you want to go back to the original soundtrack. The folder is in:
    RPCS3\dev_hdd0\game\NPUB30625\USRDIR\rom\sound\bgm

    - Textures and Models: MikuMikuModel https://github.com/blueskythlikesclouds/MikuMikuLibrary/releases for extracting and replacing textures and models.

    - To convert .png to .dds files vice versa: DXTBMP https://www.mwgfx.co.uk/programs/dxtbmp.htm

    - Gimp (Textures) https://www.gimp.org/downloads/
    - Blender (Models) https://www.blender.org/download/

    Directory: RPCS3\dev_hdd0\game\NPUB30625\USRDIR\rom\objset

    The stage files all start with "stg" again make sure to backup the objset folder if you ever want to go back to the original stages. Hopefully someone can get the Dural stage to work.

    Can you mod it to show us the hurtboxes and hitboxes? This is the mod I've been waiting for

    It's possible, there are tons of files to look into, but I've only been experimenting with basic mods.

    Ha ha glad you like it, got bored of the old menu screen. Currently the best way to play it online is with Parsec. GGPO was recently implemented into the Dolphin emulator for Melee. Figuring out how to do the same for RPCS3 would be ideal for this game.

    Is it possible to bring back high quality voices from vanilla version, instead of FS low sampling rate audio ?

    i should probably say that most of the modding has been carried on in TheVirtuaFighters discord, in case anyone is interested to see the progress we have made. https://discord.gg/JMECKkN


    i made this out of appreciation for this site, i'll upload the file here and on discord. New Image.jpg

    soon we will have a video tutorial on how to actually make/install mods, it's very easy and everyone should be able to do it.

    yeah it's possible, i haven't personally looked into the voice clips yet, but audio files(Music/SE) are extremely easy to mod/replace.
