FFXIV ULD Dialog Files

The bytes in question is a triplet of shorts. Most commonly found as 0x64 0x64 0x64 (100/100/100), also, they Always seem to have the same va...

Re: Help decoding image data block

Image seems to be 16 bits per pixel, however, reading over the data as a set of little endian shorts and taking out 4bit components results in the two most significant channels painting a relatively good, but grayscale picture, while the two least significant do paint the picture, But quite distorte...

Help decoding image data block

Requesting help with decoding this image block, I cant seem to figure out what decoder to use. I've tried with DTX1 and DTX5, and some Implementation of BC7-decoder, all just results in some fun giberish of colors. I'm fairly positive that my DTX-decoders work, not sure about the BC7 one thou. Targe...

Re: FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn (*.DAT0;*.INDEX)

Re: FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn (*.DAT0;*.INDEX)

Hi, I've been sitting and pondering on this myself for the past couple of hours, and this far, I have a php script to decode and show an image-frame on the fly (takes some time, php is slow), however, this only works by guessing the dimensions of the image contained, and its kinda bad. So, I thought...

Re: FFXIV .dat-files (GTEX)
