Roman Sandal boot style unavailable to males

Recommended Posts

Given that the textures for the Roman Sandal boot style are present on male Cimeroran townie NPCs, fit better on the male model, and indeed were designed for males in the first place, I can't imagine that it's intentional for them to only be available to female PCs. I was very disappointed when I was putting together my main's Halloween costume.

l can't wait for this to happen. Dunno if any of my alts would benefit from this, but l have numerous AE Arcs, with NPC inside those SURELY will.

 

"Roman Sandal" style was made available in i25 update made by Ouroboros team, here (page 25):

https://docs.google.com/document/d/11cLJiSYlfueJheOumRywG8Evip2Mjmu_30Y6ePaetqY/edit

 

"More Roman Sandals: Boots"

 

So that means prior to shutdown that style was NOT available for players at all, both Male & Female character. Ouroboros update note doesn't mention, however that style is to be unlocked for Female only, not for Male. But it de-facto it was unlocked for Female bodies only. While it's easy to fix on Private server, it's impossible to fix on Homecoming.

 

Please do this! Because more options is always better than less.

According to what l've found in the most recent "Costumes.bin" file, this symmetric style can be easily added by disabling its dev-only flag. Assymetric style, however, requires more work, but in case it was done at spring through some tool (for other boot styles) then it could be easier. An extra Geometry that is need to be added is called "MALE_BOOT.geo/GEO_LlegL_Flat".

 

Also in the end of the file "%ServerFolder%\Server\data\server\db\templates\vars.attribute" the string "MALE_BOOT.geo/GEO_LlegL_Flat" needs to be added with an indeficator number before it, so server would able to save the new assymetrical style. This all is an info for Developers, however.

Not sure if that can be called a bug, but seriously, why not?

There's no point of not unlocking it. Unfortunately there's no big point of unlocking it eitha. HC team apparently has betta things to do. So it's not coming.

 

In case you want to have it unlocked on your Private Server do following things:
1. Open file "%cohserverfolder%\data\bin\costume.bin" file in hexadecimal editor. Before that it's desirable to create backup "costume.bin" file to revert it in case you do something wrong.
2. Then inside it find following byte sequences: "00 42 61 72 65 00".
3. Once you find it (that's a string placed in file's header), you need to write down somewhere hexadecimal address of first "0x42" byte. For instance it might be 0x228AB.
4. Subtract hexadecimal 0x18 from it. It'll be 0x22893 for instance.
5. Transform that to address to the DWORD value the way it's in memory. The byte with lower order comes first. For instance it'll be "93 28 02 00"
6. Find aforementioned (e.g. "93 28 02 00") sequence of bytes. In case there is to be the lone byte "0x01" like 32 bytes after it - repiace it to 0x00, that's the NPC-only flag. That shud be 1 for males & 0 for females for Your interest - replace all of them to 0 to unlock the style for males.
7. Save file "%cohserverfolder%\data\bin\costume.bin". That's not all
8. In the folder with client game executable the in the "data" folder make the "bin" folder and save the another instance of "costume.bin" file there for instance it's going to be "%cohclientfolder%\data\bin\costume.bin"
9. ...
10. That's all.

 

But do NOT try to trick Homecoming with it & modify clientside only "costume.bin" file. If you try to use that style and update the Existing character the serverside will reject the changes. If you try to make brand new toon with that style - it might be even worse, as the toon won't have even one valid costume and become not accessible because of that.

Ok, maybe this isn't a bug in all meanings of this word, but the following this surely is:

Its style available to Females - "Senator" Texture1 - either that Texture1 or its mask (Texture2) - elements of it those do not suppose to inherit SKIN color do it (red circle on pictures above). Elements of that are colored in skin color, but since it had always been NPC-only part on Live it seem to never got attention to. SCORE developers enabled the style, but this Texturing untidiness, well, l don't think this Senator Texture1 would have passed the Quality bar for Homecoming, because of this. That style available for Female characters is a leftover Homecoming inherited from the SCORE. It has always meant to be NPC-only piece, no matter, Male, Female, or Huge (or maybe even BasicMaleBasicFemale, Villain, Villain2 or Villain3) Body Type you are.

 

SCORE software, however, seems to be software mostly for Private Servers, there's other meaning of term "Quality Bar" for those (when you play alone or with one or slightly more friends on those), while Homecoming looks more like full-scale MMOs with massive amount of players. Definitely what is within Quality Bars on Private Servers and is tolerable, stops being that on Homecoming.

 

l hope, as right now Homecoming project started to receive regular updates, some glitches and untidinesses like described in this thread may get fixed or corrected at some point.
