Adding faces with fifaFS...
We've recieved many letters telling us about what happens after adding a new face to FIFA 2005 with fifaFS tool. The error is related to an irrational specifity of the game itself (you can send compliments to EA Sports). But among different bad words and complaints we found e-mails with solution; and this helped us very much!
Thanks to MK Hayan, who discovered that if you import new face to zdata_01.big and then use our tool to rebuild fifa.fat and zdata_xx.bh—the face will work! Also thanks to Fabio Meerburg, who checked this theory and reported that new face will also work placed in zdata_07.big.
This means that new and corrected version of fifaFS will come very soon. Please wait a little bit…
You can still work with zdata_xx.big's as with separate big files. For example, this script will add new face (id - 12492) into zdata_07.big:
mountbig $fifadir$\data\zdata_07.big, big7
-ar player____model60__12492_0_0.o|c, player____model60__12492_0_0.o, big7
-ar playertexobj.texobj11__texture12__12492_0_0.fsh|c, playertexobj.texobj11__texture12__12492_0_0.fsh, big7
-ar playertexobj.texobj11__texture14__0_12492_0.fsh|c, playertexobj.texobj11__texture14__0_12492_0.fsh, big7
