Pretty much I have shadownet working by not allowing it to load any files and manually loading in names.bin and then game.bin on top of that, the problem is I can't load any old .fmps even if they only mess with the game.bin file. Something like adding a weapon to your inventory or changing the hero mesh.
What is the correct load order for all the files? The ones I know FE uses are
Toggle Spoiler

Though there might be some I am forgetting.

I know names has to come before frontend or game.bin but it also looks like the effects.big was replaced by several versions of particles.bbb so something has to be changed with that also.

Trying to get this sorted so maybe we can get a tool for just Fable Anniversary and will be a lot more community friendly. Also I miss using the old exploding chicken yew bow.

I think you can change the .bbb files to a .stb (or something) extension, which can be loaded with ShadowNet.

Seems like we can only change so much now, as the graphics (meshes, textures etc) are stored in a .upk file now for the Unreal Engine, so swapping meshes wont work.

You could always change the files extension of the .fmp to a .bin and view it's content, then replicate the changes manually.

There are a few individual xml defs that have changed between F:TLC and F:A. Some changes will need to be manually redone. A majority of old FMPs won't work.

The textures and meshes will need to be imported into UnrealED. New objects are a no go though unless someone has the time to figure out workarounds.
