Thank you @fuggles

Unzip it and run the file format editor
.exe. from there you will need to open a file, normally a whe or whm file.

Typically you could copy a section from the model in the whm, say the chaos lord scythe, then open a force commander and paste the scythe section in.

You would delete the FCS chainsword and rename the scythe to the same name as the chainsword bit had.

There used to be tutorials but I think they are all gone. I once made a decent model, but in general it's a poor substitute for learning 3dmax. At best I could weapon and head swap reliably well.

Hello! By chance, how does one execute/run this program? :)

Your tool has set the entire community aflame for some time now, my dear friend. Everything is now possible which was once a mere pipe dream! :w00t:


Just being able to do what I have done the last 24 hrs is utterly huge how well it does it. :thumbsuphappy:

Feel free to ask again if I can help.

@Dark40k.. need your help buddy..


Scenario - I am using FFE to change the texture path in a WHM in the MSGR section of a certain mesh. Changing the texture path in the SSHR section works no problems but when I need to change a certain mesh's texture path (as mentioned in the MSGR area under Data) it CTDs the game when I try to load the model after making the change.


Can you take a look?


Edit: Nevermind.. found the issue... I should have been using the "Auto Text" option in that MSGR section when changing the mesh's texture path. Once it asked me to edit the FULL texture path there I edited it, saved, went in-game, no CTD and it is also correctly using the new texture path!! :good: So never mind little olde me. :tongevil:

Finally, Dark40k is here! That's great. I had so much... "notices" about FFE's "not-as-expected-work", long ago, in times of doing this.

Maybe next time  :themenace:

Yeah, so far importing/exporting Raw is the way - but it works OK for me, it is 100% consistent.

No, it seems not. I think it only work inside the instance.


However, you can workaround it using import Raw / export Raw.

Can you copy and paste between two open instances of ffe?
