Hi!

 

So I wanted to change the textures of some of the staves with some textures I found. I want to replace some of the staff textures with this one (https://www.nexusmod.../2020?tab=files)

 

However, I have no idea where the weapons are located. Anyone know where they are/where I can find them? I'm guessing I'll need to extract from some .ERF file.

In the game install folder, there's a 'textures' folder with two folders inside: 'high' and medium'. As you suspect, the textures will need to be extracted from the 'texturepack.erf' archives inside the 'high' and medium' folders, respectively.

 

Example path, this for an Origin installed DAO:

 

[drive root]:\Program Files\Origin Games\Dragon Age\packages\core\textures\

 

The folder location will, of course, differ for other install methods.

It's probably in textures.erf, which is in the Program Files folder where your game is installed. It may be in Steam Games or Origin Games or another folder, depending on your install. But after you get to the Dragon Age folder it's in packages\core\data.

 

theskymoves is probably correct, though; I'd forgotten that some textures aren't in that core data folder.

Thanks! Good to hear from you TheSkyMoves. You're always a help :smile:

 

It may be best to just make another new weapon altogether then (?). I've been looking on YouTube for some good tutorials on how to do this with the DAToolSet but not having any luck. Any suggestions?

 

 

EDIT: Never mind I actually figured it out. I thought having not played this game in over a year I'd be lost. Now, if I can just get the person who made the textures to allow me to release the staff I made, we can have an Elder (wand) Staff in the game!
