Texture patcher - Fix transparent visors/black feet etc
 
Ever notice half elf visors are sealed shut? Eye of Zomm is black?

These issues and many more can be fixed.

Months ago, kanras and I fixed all known texture issues. We have both been busy with RL work, and not much has been completed since. I am releasing the executable and relevant patcher so you can enjoy what has been corrected to date. Original credit goes to Ropethunder for creating the transpfx.exe file.

Examples of fixed textures:

Other notable fixes:
  • Plate chest pieces having black spots - half elves, dark elves, etc.
  • Certain player models having black spots in hair or faces - high elf female, dark elf male.
  • Many, many models having black feet.
  • Black spots on sand giants, snow orcs, dragon wings, qeynos hills buildings.
  • Transparency issues for pegasus wings, trakanon wings, felguard visors.
  • many more

To use:
  • Extract patch_s3d_textures.bat and transpfx.exe into your \Everquest folder
  • Run patch_s3d_textures.bat file
  • Wait for it to finish
  • Restart your Everquest client
  • Enjoy

Known problem:
  • The female human plate helm shares the same texture as the male human plate helm but does not use transparency. As a result of enabling transparency for the male plate visor a small porthole has appeared in the back of the female plate helm.

Is this legal?
  • Yes. This includes no copyrighted files. It simply modifies your existing files.

Is this mandatory?
  • No. This is completely optional.

Can I use this for other EQemu servers?
  • Yes. Enjoy.

Issue running patcher
 
I initially used the patcher without giving it the right permissions. I then gave it administrative permission and tried to run it again. When it starts it closes immediately without doing anything. I even reinstalled everything to try it again and it won't work. I have the higher_res pack of zones, could that be an issue?

Open a command prompt and run it from there.

Does not appear to be compatible. Had the texture upgrade installed and as soon as I installed this I was crashing instantly at character selected. Loaded in my backups and reinstalled the patch and it worked.

Can't have both I guess until maybe Nilbog finds a work-around :(
