[Finished] Modding of ME3 Credits

Postby giftfish » 24 Jun 2014, 03:24

So this proved really easy :D

I had asked Fob about it awhile ago on our forum and he pointed me to the TLK and a sequence object. Then, when I was hunting through the Coalesced.bin trying to solve out codex bug I came across the biocredits.ini section and took a good look at some of the parameters. After deciphering everything (theoretically, anyway), I figured since the credits song was always the same length and that any combination of vanilla and DLC credits would have to always fit in that amount of time (431s), the scroll rate of the credits must adjust automatically. This proved correct. All that the modder needs to do to add their own mod credits is edit Coalesced.bin and the BIOGame_INT.tlk.

Hopefully, things will "translate" properly when ThaneMOD is moved to the new DLC method of install. I"m a bit concerned about the Coalesced.bin. For example, Fob (or maybe WV...) has said that the DLC bins are formatted differently and Wenchy doesn't work with them. In addition, sections are always missing for DLC coalesceds. So, I'll let you know what happens.

FYI, the first 20-30s are vanilla footage, just for context. This also includes altered credits music that ThaneMOD installs (from ME1):

People are mad at you? >.>

Maybe re-activate the "like" feature? I actually wondered about that for a little while now. Sometimes I hit "thank" when it's more appropriate to "like" a post, lol.
