ENOURMOUS thanks to HaCKer_UTD from facepunch.com. He ripped God of War 3 models and shared them. Hats off to him!
HUGE thanks to Son of Persia, for his awesome tools, tutorials and a ton of useful information!
You can also find some PS gamepad buttons textures in the 07000000.pack file, I took them from DarkSamus's Great Buttons Mod.
Well, guess what was the first thing in my mind when I saw that God of War 3 models are finally ripped? Right, to bring all that epicness to RE4!
Okay, the video first:
BEHOLD THE MIGHTY KRATOS!
All the audio comes from the game. The FPS is low at times, this is because my computer can't handle so much epicness.
1) Main characters gameplay models.
Kratos replaces Leon (with jacket, witout jacket, with tactical vest) in the Main Story and Mercs.
Unfortunately, due to stupid polygons number limit, I had to lower the poly count in his body just a liiiitle bit (Oh, mighty Kratos, please don't kill me for that).
Screens (all clickable):
Aphrodite replaces Ada in mercs and separate ways.
Since our modding community doesn't allow nudity I've censored her balloonz by prolonging the dress
Zeus replaces Krauser in Mercs and in the Main story.
You probably know that transparency in RE4 is really bad, so unfortunately, there's no transparency in his epic beard =(
Kratos meets some titans here!
Smaller in size but still titans
Perses (the fiery one) replaces El Gigante.
Also Kratos can face two titans at the same time!
Perses' model is used for both though, I just remapped the textures for Oceanus (the blue one).
3) Blade of Athena.
Kratos' epic blade is with him.
4) Radio Transmissions.
Kratos opens his mouth, but the audio is not changed. There's also some strange normal map effect on the eyes, they are shining too much at times :\
5) Main Menu pictures.
6) Mercs Icons and Result Screens.
7) HUDs and Inventory Screen.
Huds and Inventory are changed using some GOW3-style things.
That's all with the gameplay stuff.
But wait! There's more!
8) All 3 Characters in the Cutscenes with Facial Animations.
FINALLY we can bring custom models to RE4 cutscenes, I've been dreaming about it for so long.
Want to thank Son of Persia again for his impeccable EVD tool!
You can also check my tutorial about facial animations here: residentevilmodding.boards.net/thread/3466/adding-cutscenes-animations-support-tutorial
Leon, Ada and Krauser are replaced with Kratos, Aphrodite and Zeus in the corresponding cutscenes.
You can easily view the cutscenes from Movie Browser.
But if you want to run them properly from the gameplay, you should wear a Normal costume and NOT have a tactical vest. Otherwise the textures wil be black in the cutscenes, this is due to some technical reasons (see my tutorial for more information about that)
This one cutscene is the quintessence of the mod
I've replaced the original voice replics in this cutscene with those extracted from GOW3, but don't expect any deep meaning or lip syncing in them I was just curious.
All other cutscenes have original audio tracks.
Also the resolution of the video is low cause that's the best of what my computer can record without lagging :\
Kratos VS. Zeus Cutscene!
Some more clickable cutscenes screens:
9) Some Music and Audios.
You can see that in the first Video far above.
Some audio effects are changed (few).
I've also replaced Leon's grunts and attack shouts with Kratos'.
Didnt' do that with other characters though cause they are similar to the original ones.
There's also some music changes, see in the video, not many (about 10 tracks).
10) Loading Icon.
And of course the "Loading" icon is just like in GOW3
Download links and Installation.
There is a lot of files in the mod, expecially in ImagePackHD folder, so I've included a .bat file that will help you to make a backup. Just put it in your Resident Evil4\BIO4\ and it will create folder named Backups and will copy all the original files there. And then you can simply extract all the .rar folders in your BIO4 folder and replace when asked without any doubts.
EDIT: Some more info about the installation process if you have .lfs files in your "Em", "Evd", or other RE4 folders:
.lfs files are the original archives, but my mod archive pack contains modded .udas, .dat, .pack, .yz2 files , so if you just put them in some folder, "Em" for example, lets say pl00.udas, you will have 2 files with pl00 name ( the modded pl00.udas from my acrhive and the pl00.udas.lfs original file, and the original .lfs will override the modded .udas and the game will read it instead of .udas file.
So, you can just delete all .lfs files that have the same names as the modded files. In all folders.
Oh, and don't forget to make backupz
There are 2 versions of the mod:
FULL: 1 GB
the huge size is caused by bio4bgm.xwb file that contains the music. Eventhough I changed only several tracks, UHD still requires to repack the whole file :\
LITE: 480 MB - No music.
I didn't include that audio file from that knife-battle cutscene, cause it takes another 500 MB and I doubt anyone needs it. But if you want it you can download it here.
That's it, see you around!
