    Glad it's all working Thanks.

    devilllll, I'm currently swamped working on Defiance, so I doubt I'll be working on anything else for some time. Gorechild has done some modding for BO2 here. Currently, it's not possible to swap models between the games, no.

    to use texmod in blood omen 2 you will need this http://www.enbdev.com/convertor_dx8_dx9_v0035.htm place it in the folder with the .exe file. then you need to go to the data folder and findt the game.erg file ande set playmovie = 0 otherwise the game will crash. this only disables the intro and outro, so its no big deal.

    have you ever thought of creating a faction of nosgot in medieval 2 total war? type the army of vampire blood omen. I think it would be fun

    I am not sure if I am blind, but where can I find a link to download all of the mods in one shot, or do I need to download one at a time?

    Also, the texmod gets flashed as having a Trojan. Any reason to worry about that or?

    Thanks!

    Hi Amidas,

    Yes, I stopped updating the full one and just started updating individual skins. Texmod can run them all at once, so that's the best method.

    I haven't uploaded any in a while, and Sendspace only keeps them so long, so I'll probably have to upload them all again. Let me know if they aren't working.

    Texmod is fine. That warning can be ignored. It's a pain for me sometimes, too, as my virus scan software before updating about half a year ago never bothered with it. Now, I have to disable it to run Texmod.

    Woot. Beaten the game with all of these (save for the wide loading screens) just a few hours ago. Was quite a ride. In fact, having this motivated me to play the game, otherwise I might not have managed to make myself beat it and finish my GOG/Steam LoK Marathon.
    I still think somebody should redo the intro and the outro with the new Kain in GMod or Source Filmmaker.

    Glad you had a good time

    I've had notions of redoing a lot of things... A lot of things. Yes, I've let things get in the way of finishing up this big commission, but I aim to get that done this week and to get back onto my projects. I have a surprise to show, but I need to finish it first.

    If my ambitions can be anywhere near a reality in any way, then I aim to do a lot more than retexturing now.

    Sorry for neglecting this thread. Still working on the project I mentioned. Ups and downs doing that, but I will get it done.

    Yes, I've seen the new Nosgoth. It's not the ideal LoK, but let's hope it leads to an LoK sequel. You can check out the forums on it, or the site.

    Thanks for the video. I embedded it on the forum.

    Please use the YouTube code to show it instead of linking to YouTube directly.


    I don't have any further information on Blood Omicide other than the link to it:

    http://omnicide.legacy-of-kain.ru/en

    Looks like the upper right has a Contact section, you can email them, or post on that forum to get help.

    Hi! This project is fantastic!
    I have a question, and I hope you can help me. Do you know how to get the texture packs working on the Steam version? I can't seem to make it work and I was really excited to play with your awesome textures.

    You have to launch the game through TexMod, not through Steam, then it will work.

    I'll get these updated again. Since switching to a new computer months ago and getting bogged down in another project, I've been completely neglectful of these. They were on the other computer, but I have them and will update to another host.

    CJDJ_Canada, and everyone else, new links have been updated in the first post.

    They're near the top of the post. One link for the videos. One for the skin packs.

    No more searching throughout the post for links.



    Explanations due: I put this retexturing project on hold for a few reasons. One, I wanted to go further and there is only so much you can do here. I chose to try and remodel the characters and not just paint the old ones. Instead of just doing that for Defiance, I'm now trying to recreate the entire Legacy of Kain game cutscenes.

    If you haven't seen yet, you can check out the full recreation of the CGI Kain model used in the intros that I sculpted here.

    Given the time it was taking, and that I had more I wanted to try my hand at like modeling, I would never have had the time for both. I wold still love to redo the games, but redo them right. I would love, frankly, to redo all models, textures, lighting, mechanics, make the world unified as one, basically remake Nosgoth and have everything connect as a chapter in the same world.

    I had dreams of trying to do that, to remake the games myself, briefly until I realized how that would take probably a century for me, alone, to do... I'll settle for trying my hand at recreating the cutscenes, for now.


    I wanted to show all of this earlier, but learning how to model and make low polygon characters from high polygon sculpts, all of that took time. More time than I anticipated.

    I just got this game off of steam, tried to download the wide screen fix but the file seems to be broken/damaged. Could anyone reupload this file?

    Just a note for everyone: I've updated the first post to note that Windows 8 users can now use Texmod. I think it's probably since the update to 8.1 a while back.

    Hi all, I'm not sure if this has been asked here yet, but I figured my problem may be unique anyway. Here it is; I have successfully overwritten the old defiance.exe for my gog.com version of the game with the appropriate executable, so no worries there, and yeah it all works fine without using texmod, but as soon as I run texmod, as an administrator mind you, and I choose all of the .tpf files included in the onedrive folder, the game goes fullscreen with a black screen, and there is almost no cpu activity or accessing of the ssd I run windows and the game from, so I figure it's got something to do with the game's, or texmod's, inability to add in all those textures, then the game crashes. Here is the extended information from the crash report:

    Exception at: 17/12/2014 at 21:19:48
    Exception code: 0xe06d7363
    Exception address: 0x770bfe58

    CPU info:
    ---------
    EAX = 0x0019f6d8
    EBX = 0x00000000
    ECX = 0x00000003
    EDX = 0x00000000
    ESI = 0x10083b9c
    EDI = 0x0019f770
    EIP = 0x770bfe58
    ESP = 0x0019f6d8
    EBP = 0x0019f730

    Apparently some exception during the calculation by the CPU, I actually have gotten this working with about 1-2 times ending in failure, and the 3rd time working fine, going even so far as letting me alt+tab out of the game and, after about 2 minutes of waiting, letting me back in. I have experimented with using only the textures needed for the part of the game I am playing, but even this only seems to work half the time. My setup is an intel 15 4570, nvidia gts 450, gigabyte z87 intel chipset mobo, 8GBs g-skill 1600MHz RAM, and a samsung 250GB SSD, I am also running the windows 10 x64 technical preview, but apart form a few bugs where explorer crashes and the store app comes up randomly I haven't had any real issues with the latest build of 10, and it is more or less 8.1 with a few tweaks anyway, no way they built it from the ground up. Anyway, I know this post is uber long, and I feel sorry for whoever reads it, but thanks in advance to anyone who has information on this issue.

    Hi GarrettM90,

    I'm sorry you're having issues. I'm not sure about technically exactly what to do, but doing a quick search of the exception code you posted brought me to this:

    http://winwiki.org/exception-code-0xe06d7363/

    Down at the bottom (past the advice to system restore, which I hope would not be necessary), there's a link to a utility that can search for what's causing the exception (the way they're describing it might be a registry error) and can try and fix it.

    I don't know what else to suggest. Unfortunately, I only use Texmod to upload the textures I've done, but I am not an expert on troubleshooting it, or software issues in general. One thing I will note, though: the loading of these skins does take time. The black screen taking up to 2-3 minutes is actually the program loading these textures from the packed .tpf files Texmod uses, so that part of it is natural. The increase in these textures' size is a lot compared to what came inherently in Defiance, so it does take some time.

    I hope that the above helps.

    The_Hylden,

    I managed to get the game working fairly reliably, and I did kind of figure the textures were taking a while to load, I guess the engine has to unzip them or something? Anyway thank you for suggesting that utility, it seems pretty cool and I'll probably use it in the future but, it doesn't currently support my version of windows, yet anyway. I have beaten the game as of like 5:30 AM, I just couldn't stop until it was done

    All in all, it seems like I was just adding overlapping textures onto one character like say mortainius with hood vs just mortainius and kain without cape vs normal, etc. So I eliminated that issue as well as textures for settings and characters I wouldn't see again and everything's great now.

    Also, I am very grateful for the time you've spent revitalizing this game for me and all the other fans who enjoy the Legacy of Kain series. Thank You.

    However, I do have a passing query: what is with the audio popping? I've tried to turn off reverb and the music and do any combination but nothing works, googling the issue is fruitless as for some reason I keep getting links pertaining to other games with similar issues, and that also just happen to mention LoK somewhere on the page. I know you said you're not adept at troubleshooting, but if any fixes cross your mind, It'd be helpful to hear them.

    I'm glad that you got the game running and enjoyed the skins Yeah, running the duplicate file textures like that definitely sounds like the issue. The program couldn't figure out which version of all of those textures it should be loading.

    Hm, Defiance doesn't have any issues with sound that I know of (other than now and then a sound effect, especially fire, getting caught in a loop), and it wouldn't be due to Texmod running, I don't think. Your system doesn't look like it would have an issue with the high res textures dropping your frame rate...

    Barring that, I can only think of suggesting that you check the driver on your sound card to see if it's up to date.

    Wait, Windows 10? I didn't even notice that, lol What happened to Windows 9? Crazy Microsoft...

    Yeah, the game was never really made for any of these newer versions of Windows. So far, through XP, Vista, 7, and 8 (at least, as far as I know), there haven't been any issues running it. But with every new Windows version that comes out, you can never know what might have compatibility issues.

    The_Hylden,

    Yeah idk, I'll figure it out, probably something to do with creative's drivers or the fact that I use dts connect which makes all the audio formatted into dts. I have dolby digital live as well and could try that, unfortunately I HAVE to use one of these otherwise there's no audio coming out of the fiber port on the sound card. But anyway, thanks for everything, have a good one
