FC skins in ROF

Recommended Posts

It looks like skins from FC can be ported to ROF just by copying the skin into the appropriate folder.   I did this with my Alb skin and it worked without modification.

There were two drawbacks however:

The colors as rendered by ROF were much brighter than they appear in FC.   I had to reduce the overall luminosity of the .dds considerably to get the colors I had seen in FC.

Also, ROF may not be able to handle the effects of the alpha channel from FC.  On my skin, areas of high reflectivity appear as holes in the skin.   It is noticeable up close, but to me it didn't appear significant in the air.    This would probably be fixable with a little work on the .dds in Photoshop.

So, for me the steps were:

copy the 2k .dds from FC to ROF (for 4k dds use PS to reduce size to 2048x2048)

Then in the ROF copy:

  • use levels in PS to reduce the brightness of the main layers
  • use levels to increase brightness of alpha channel
  • save the .dds

 I wonder if an approved skin can be modified and used?

Again, it would only show that way on your computer.  The modification of the file is what the anti-cheat measure was all about.
