    .DAT Fun

    Anyone here make any cool .DAT files, or know any way to edit the files. I know about changing certain armors to make em look like other armor.

    Currently have my Bone/Beelte gear looking like WAR AF2. Better to look at.... LOL...

    But anywho, anyone know how to edit the appearences or how to create your own custom DATs for weapons and armor?

    Dammit.....

    I may be a perv, but my wife plays FFXI as well, and she'd stab me (being a dominican woman) if I did that. I just have gotten tired of looking at the same armor over and over again. I changed the Feral Jerkiin set to look like Koenig since a RDM can't wear it. I know it's sad, but it looks cooler.

    LOL.... any serious links in english?

    A friend of mine did something where he changed the .dat thing to make DRG's wyverns look like Bune.

    Then we went to camp Bune and I was already there with wyvern out and he got scared when he approached me because he saw something that looked like Bune standing next to me.

    Then we proceeded to kill Bune and took some screen shots; it's real funny, looks like one Dragon fighting another...

    I'll post the pic when I get home >_>

    I assume you mean he saw your computer monitor or personal TV.

    Changing the .DAT files only affects your computers images, so if someone else sees you through their connect, all they see is the standard DRG Wyvern, not anything else. There is not way to change the server side .DAT files to make everyone see what you've changed.

    any dat files you change around, only you see. on my pics, if you saw me in that same gear, you'd see the same old purple af and tiny dagger.

    daahan's friend was the one who changed the wyvern dat. that's why he reacted so wierd. :3 i have the dynamis wyvern as mine.

    I can do minor .dat editing if anyone is looking for someone to do so. I have painted the Cream/White parts of the Koenig armor black (turned out kinda "'meh", so i'm gonna re color the other stuff too to make it look better). Send me a PM if you are looking for something.

    the problem is dealing with the shadows and getting it to look right.

    That's a really good tutorial. Very detailed even if some wouldn't think so. Leaves a lot open to learn on your own. I am eventually going to take a shot at mixing DRK AF2 and DRG AF1 and making a RDM-esque outfit. Thanks Saashaa.
