Hello guys.
So I have been creating a lot of meshes for fable for my amusment (probably gonna release some of them Razz ) but I was wondering if there is any good directX importer for blender.
I use the default of the newer versions but it does not have importer so I found a cooked script importer for dX but I can't load the meshes exported from fable and I always get errors.
Does anyone have any good importer script for directX for Blender?

Mod FTW!!! :D

Hello members of fable tlc mod forum! So it's been a long time since I visited this forum and I recently started modding fable tlc again (Yayyy Very Happy )
So I came back with a few questions Razz
I started creating new weapons at blender and I have a few questions:
1) Can I use cycles for materials that will apply to fable?
2) If cycles can't do it can Blender Render machine materials work?
3) Sometimes my models become glithy and all I can see is lines in the game but on Cbox I can view the model just fine... Is there anything that I can do besides remodeling the item?
4) Sometimes when I import my textures as DXT1 it crashes eventhough I don't use alpha on the texture/item but when I import it as a DXT3 with alpha enabled to the object and the texture it works just fine and other times it crushes...

Well... That's for now Razz

Ohh and something else.. I am now logged in from IE...
When I try to log in from Google Chrome it sais my cookies are probably expired... I tried to clean my coockies cache or something Razz from the settings of my browser but still same thing... Any info on that?
Thanks! ^_^ Glad to be back :3

Mod FTW!!! :D

Hey member and non members of fabletlcmod.com forum.
So... I am sure that a lot of you had problems with importing directX files from the game to newer versions of blender and you started using a lot of different importers and exporters in order to make it work.
I had that problem too untill I found out a script that I would like to share with you that allows you to import directX files using newer versions.

Instruction to make it work.(Copied from the readme file from inside the folder)

I take no creadits.
All credits goes to "littleneo" for the files Smile
I hope I helped Smile

Mod FTW!!! :D

Hi guys I recently decided to buckle down and give armour modding a shot. I found crazybunnies guide up on youtube via morerunes channel. I followed all the steps and the bones moved correctly when rotated in 3ds max. However when I imported it and loaded it in fable it comes all glitched out. Was wandering what I did wrong and how to resolve it. There is a screenshot below to show what I mean. Hah to be honest im surprised I got this far Razz.
Problem seems to be with editing envelopes with 3ds max, very difficult to edit them well :/

After hours of messing around with animations, I decided to make a floating mod.
I feel that this mod should have been made a long time ago.
There's not much to say but this mod is mostly for looks.
It's not gonna do anything except look cool/nice/neat.
I will call this a BETA since it hasn't been fully tested, but I think it's good enough to post on the forum Razz

There are only 2 bad thing about this mod.
One that you still hear footsteps...
And since I can't really edit the sounds, you'll just have to go to audio settings and turn sound down.
The other bad thing is that I couldn't really find good running animations so you are just frozen in jack's assassin rush pose...

Have fun floating around! Very Happy

-Briefly tested on fresh install-

This Video shows how to make modeling easy using blender and Inkscape and can save some valuable time! This will help those not good at modeling. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ows2QTiMRPg (video).Hint after you put the vector graphic into blender select all and join them together will make it all layers 1 object. Hope this helps, it helped me a lot.

Figured I'd post this here, as these will likely never actually go into fable, so I see no reason to clutter the screenshots thread further with my models. Anyway, here's my demon sword.

Sorry it's so dark at spots, but that's the way the texture is, and I see no reason to brighten it.

I just wanted to show him off, hope you enjoy. If you want, I can add a quick tutorial on how to make one, but its really quite simple. I learned everything I know from here: http://fabletlcmod.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=7265& ;start=0&

Alright, today I decided to put blender to use instead of letting it waste space on my hard drive, and tinkered with morerunes' sword template, see if I could get any cool yet undamaging results. Well I found out how to scale out the weapon on the x,y,and z planes, and decided to make that thing look like less of a cleaver and more of a katana. I exported it after I was satisfied, making sure not to flip the helpers by it using the left hand thingy instead of right hand, and clicked export all. I then imported it again, and the texture was gone, as were the helpers, and it was back to it's old crummy cleaver mode. How do I get it to save ALL of the details like the button implies?

Hello everyone. This will be my first post along with a custom weapon I had planned to contribute some time ago. While the model is complete the texture is a bit off. Trying to fix the problem by changing the type of picture I used did not work and I am trying to keep this as realistic as possible before completing the final texture. Have a look but keep in mind I am new to modeling and the sword has been posted here before. from what I have seen, all I were extracted from games or were in unsatisfied quality... not like this is any different but it is an attempt. Both the idea and texture itself came from Master Sword by ~lady-die from deviantart. Any suggestions will be appreciated. I am uploading both the .x and blender file to show the changes when exporting.


Perhaps I made the wrong move only providing the source of my work. I will give you my most up to date .fmp but it has been a while since I had worked on this, (since the first post). I am busy and have little time to do these things so any advice would be appreciated.

Hi all!
I'm new here at FableTLCMod, but I've been registered at projectego a long time, and also followed tutorials from both there and here at FableTLCMod..
But anyways I have a problem ...

I've tried to model a sword for fable, by following this tutorial
http://fabletlcmod.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=3056& ;start=0&
But I haven't got far...
At the point the author uses "push" to make the sharp edges for the sword, he does it "flawless", but when I try it, I get a little, what should I call it.. Knob or something at the tip of the sword...
If you want a screenshot, well here it is:


Another thing is that the sword isn't smooth/flat/even
As I suck at explaining, I've taken another screenshot...
This is from front view (flat):


Any help?

Oh and the push value is at -4,549

Thanks Smile

this might also have the sharingon for the stop time image. if any one wants it off, but wants the eyes let me know and ill fix it.

ok maybe not. iv tried uploading the textures and and waited about 15 minutes, but it wont get past requesting fabletlcmod.com.

so, im a dumb ass. i know i know, i was shocked when i found out too. i was trying to upload my whole textures.big file (sorry modders). but if any one wants to check out the sharingon time stop texture give me a holler. it just replaces the clock and hands when your using the time slow/stop. its not perfectly centered though. it was just something i made for a buddy...

this is the file i got out of FE, dont know if this is how ya do it, but HERE IT GOES!

No bitmaps. We've discussed this before. Have a PNG instead.

sorry bout the double post, i was having some technical difficulties.
Learn man, learn. Offsite hosting is the win.

i was trying to make it where people can download it and it works, doesn't it need to be in bmp to work with fable?
How am i supposed to learn if no one will tell me anything¿

Does anyone know which animation controls the hero's actual attacks (with a light weapon)?

I did download a mod so it might just switch that up, but I'm trying to make the hero attack differently, but it's not working.

I started with the "strikes" in between unarmed and heavy no luck.

I'd appreaciate any help.

alright, it seems that more and more people want to model, so here is a full blown, cover-it-all tutorial for those that do not know anything about how to do it for fable.

1. Pick your favorite modeling program. I personally prefer Blender, not because it is free, but because I just like the UI a whole lot more. Some people like to use Maya, but that is really, really, expensive, I don't have an exact number, but I think it's somewhere around 8,000 us dollars. Other people I've seen use ac3d, some people use 3ds max, that's a popular one, and is necessarry for clothing, but I'll get into that later. You could also use google's SketchUp program, but I don't think you'll get anywhere with that becuase it's a different style of modeling, and I don't really know how to use it. I recommend Blender, 3ds Max 9, or Maya.

2. Decide what you want to model, if it's a weapon, then you are in for an easy tutorial. If it's clothing, be prepared for hours of painstaking frustration and beating your computer to death.

3. Modeling for fable in general (excluding clothing) involves three main steps.

  • Model your object
  • Texture your object
  • Mix with similar fable model

Weapons in Particular
  1. Export a weapon from FE by going into FE, go to the top left corner and double-click Graphics.big, scroll down to near the very bottom until you find the mesh entry of a weapon similar to yours, if you made an double-bladed axe, choose a double-bladed axe. If you made a regular axe, just pick a sword. If you made a double-sided hammer, pick a double-sided hammer, regular hammer then get a sword. Basically, get a sword if it's single-sided, a double-sided if it's double-sided.
  2. For this part, you need 3ds Max, Panda Exporter, and Xporter.
  3. Open 3ds max, and go to File>>Import>> and choose to import X-FILE, and find the mesh you exported from fable. Next, import the weapon you made.
  4. Go into vertice select mode (over in the right, find the button with the blue dots while in the editing tab), and select all of the vertices. Move, rotate, and scale your weapon so it is in proportion with the fable weapon (however much bigger or smaller you want it compared to that weapon, and make sure the rotation is correct and that it is in the right spot).
  5. Exit vertice select mode (re-click the button that activated it)
  6. Go to list view, and select all but one of the sub-meshes of the fable weapon, and delete it (unless it is the only one, if it's the only one skip this step)
  7. Go to list view, and select the remaining fable mesh, then go into vertice select mode.
  8. Select all of the vertices, and delete them all.
  9. Leave vertice select mode and select the mesh of your weapon, then over in the editing column look for a button that says "Attach List" and click it. Select the mesh of the fable weapon, and click attach. If a box appears, then click ok.
  10. If you already have a texture, then skip to the next part, otherwise...
  11. Texturing Your Weapon
    • If you used blender, check out this tutorial, or this tutorial.
    • If you used 3ds Max, you'll want to get Texporter, and you can use one of these tutorials: click this one or click me instead. The first one is probably better though.
    • I'm not the person to ask about Maya or anything else (like AC3D), so google is your friend with these, but my personal favorite modeling/UV mapping program is Blender (I also do animation in it, but this is not an animation tutorial, and FE doesn't currently support new animations).
  12. Go to File>>Export and choose to export with Panda Direct X, then save it as something.
  13. Open Graphics.big in FE, and find a weapon mesh entry (near the bottom) to use, and click the materials tab.
  14. Find the button that says "Load" next to the "Save LOD" button. Click it (duh).
  15. Find the mesh you exported.
  16. After clicking ok, without closing the mesh window, go to textures.big.
  17. Scroll down to the very bottom, and find one of the UI entries. Open one of them. Change the name to TEXTURE_OBJECT_(name of object)_TEXTURE.
  18. Click on "open new", and load the texture for your weapon, setting the box to DXT3 if it uses transparency. If it doesn't use transparency keep it at DXT1.
  19. If you used DXT1 then find "alpha" with a little box next to it that has a 1 in it, and change it to 0, but if you used DXT3, then leave it at 1.
  20. Click "Apply Changes" (do this every time you change an entry before closing the window, otherwise changes will not be saved, this is the only time I will remind you).
  21. Copy the id up near the title, then close the window.
  22. Go back to the mesh window, and if you see text in the white box in the materials tab, then click it, otherwise click the top-left corner of the white box (inside the white, don't click the gray), and make sure that a small space becomes highlighted.
  23. Erase anything from the "texture" box, and paste the id that you copied earlier in there.
  24. Change max texture layers to 1, and use alpha to (0 if no transparency, 1 if transparency)
  25. Click apply changes at the bottom, then apply changes at the top.
  26. Where it says "lod" at a little box that has a 0, and click the arrow and go to 1.
  27. If text appears in the materials box, then repeat steps 12-15, and 20-25, except go from lod 1-2 if it is there, and continue until the lod does not have a mesh.
  28. When you get to the lod without a mesh, do not load a mesh there. Instead, just make sure you applied changes and go back to the preview tab.
  29. Look at all of the lod's, and make sure they look pretty close to how they should. If the textures look weird, you did something wrong in the materials tab. If the mesh looks weird, then you did something wrong in 3ds.
  30. Make sure that you do not change anything I haven't said to change! This is important, because I will tell you to change them later if neccesary, and if you are reading this you probably don't know what you are doing yet.

Once you know how to do weapons, you can probably figure out most meshes.

In this part, I am only going to tell you what things do, not exactly baby steps here. You should have a good idea about how this works by now.

If you want shiny parts of your weapon, then seperate the shiny parts in 3ds by selecting the shiny vertices and clicking detach in the right column. Exit vertice select, select the new detached mesh, go into scale mode, [MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT IN ANY OF THE EDIT MODES] and look down at the 3 boxes on the bottom of the screen. Turn the numbers to 1's. Go into move mode, and change the numbers to 0's. Go into rotate mode, change the numbers to 0's.

You may have noticed that it looks pretty messed up, so now go into vertice select mode and fix it, all in vertice select mode.

Now you should have two sub-meshes, one of the shiny parts and one of the not-shiny parts.

After you have it looking right, just export with panda.

In the mesh entry in FE, on the shiny sub-mesh, put 27 for the specular id, or some other texture to act as one, and make the max texture layers be 5. Supposedly you can use a specualar map and a normal map for the same submesh by changing max texture layers to 7, but that never seems to work for me. I'll explain normal maps here:

To make a normal map, get the normal map filter for either Gimp or Photoshop, and run your texture through it. In gimp, go to Dialogs>>Channels or something like that, and select the blue channel, then go to colors>>invert. If in photoshop, find the box with the color channels (probably lower-right side of the window), select blue channel, and go to edit>>modify>>invert or something like that. If it looks green now, then you did it right. If it doesn't look somewhat green, then you did it wrong. Save it as a .png, then import into FE as DXT3. This will be your normal map texture, so enter it into the normal map id of your mesh.

Hopefully that will work for you.

Making clothing is much more complicated, and will not be covered here, but here is a link to a good tutorial: clicky

If there is anything I missed let me know.

Hopefully coming soon: A better explanation of making stuff with blender.

I hate people asking about this so here...

Okay, first please learn to type a little better. And if your asking how to make a weapon appear invisible when shealthed then:

1. Open Fable Explorer,

2. In the left List Panel look for OBJECT and press the + sign to bring down more options,

3. Find the weapon you want in the drop down box from OBJECT (the weapons are mostly near the bottom, just look for it's name.),

4. Now that you've selected your weapon, double click it and click the + sign in the new window,

5. Now, scroll down to find the link to "CWeaponsdef" and click the first link,

5. Now the 5th line of text down should say, "SheatheObject" and under it, should be typed -1, change the -1 to 0 and your done.

Also, incase this is confusing, I've included a .zip files with pics that show me changing Avo's Tear to invisible sheathing, so should help you through it more. If you've got more questions just send me a pm!

Hi, I'm trying to reskin the hero as i don't like the pale skin so i am trying to swap the normal textures with the tanned ones.
Unfortunately this has only been partially successful as the back texture somehow gets corrupted for some reason.
Ive double checked and made sure its DXT1 and alpha is at 0 but it keeps fucking up. I have attached a screen shot of the problem.
All other body textures in the picture have been replaced with the tan ones and they are working just fine and even Will, and Tattoo Overlays are working fine there.
Only thing i can think of is that there is a bug in how FE handles the Back texture.

EDIT: If possible, if anyone knows how i can make the game point to the tanned skin textures instead of the normal ones instead then that would work as a good work around for me.
But i cant figure out how to make a model use a different texture ID Confused

Edit2: Ah nevermind i managed to figure out how to get the material in the model to point to a diffrent texture. cant belive i missed that before. But because i changed the base hero models base textures i also had to adjust the texture morphing which was easy (but time consuming)

I know there is already a thread about this but ill cover a bit more.

Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro
Note: As of Jasc Paint Shop Pro version 9, the NVIDIA normal map plugin no longer works. Use Photoshop or GIMP instead.

If you have Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro, you can use NVIDIA's normal map tools, http://developer.nvidia.com/object/photoshop_dds_plugins.htm l To use them, open a copy of the texture and apply the Normal Map filter. Fiddle with the settings until you get something that you feel will be bumpy enough for your texture. The greater the range of colors, the greater the range of angles on the surface. A very flat surface will look that medium blue color all over. If you want to have more control over it, change the image to grayscale and fiddle with brightness and contrast to make certain details stand out before applying the filter. Be sure to change the texture back to RGB mode, or else the normal map tool will not work. Do this step multiple times to get different details to stand out, and then put the images together in layers with the blend mode set to overlay.


Download the tool for GIMP, http://nifelheim.dyndns.org/~cocidius/normalmap/ and install it following the instructions in the readme.

After restarting GIMP, open a copy of the texture you want to create a normal map for and click:

Filters -> Map -> Normalmap...

Before starting, you should click the 3D Preview and place it next to the normalmap window. It will automatically update when you change your settings and will be a great help checking the results in GIMP. Select a shape similar to what your texture will be placed on ingame (e.g. a texture for brushes fits onto a cube whereas a modelskin might look better on a sphere). Make use of the UV scale to find a good setting. Now focus on the Normalmap window again. These are the most useful settings:

The 3D Preview is used to check the settings
Filter - different ways to calculate your normal map. You'll have to try out which one works best for your texture
Minimum Z - the lowest height on your normal map
Scale - Use this to control the height of your surface. Results change when you choose a different filter
Conversion - Let's you choose what is used to create the normal map. Max/Min RGB or only one color channel can be very helpful sometimes

Wrap - Normal map will pattern seamless. Definitely use it for map textures!
Invert X/Y - If your normal map seems to be upside down, this will help

Check the 3D Preview from several angles, also move the light around. When you've found the best setting, hit OK and your texture is converted to the normal map! You can either go with that right away or rework it by hand. For example, you could duplicate the layer and use some overlay effects (Dodge, Addition, ...) or paint on the texture yourself if you want to create a flat part (RGB #7f7fff is flat).

GIMP can be downloaded at http://www.gimp.org/downloads/
GIMP is free and only 13mb

Fable's Native Format for Textures is Direct Draw Surface(DDS).

nvidia supplies tools for Photoshop:

And gimp I beleive also has tools for it.

Fable Explorer exports models to directX .x files. Because those support most of the features that fable needs.

There are plugins available for 3d Studio Max at:

Different versions of xporter can be found here:

I beleive Blender also has .x plugins available.

Can I still simply switch textures to make my own? Also, could I use higher resolution textures now? I'd know by now but I still haven't bought the game, how is the state of modding Anniversary?

In case anyone wants to watch me rage at the new Fable. I started recording this shortly after it was added in beta. So some sections were harder/easier than the release. Razz

I'm attempting to make an inventory trainer, and I'm trying to get an idea using Cheat Engine of how memory is laid out in-process by finding static addresses to certain structures in memory.
However, I cannot seem to find many resources on doing this for fable specifically, and I don't think that any source code for Fable trainers were releaased.
If anyone is willing to discuss this with me, I'd love to talk on Skype or IRC or something.

Hello, So my problem is that i have to do a project in gaming class and i told my professor ahead that i picked Fable. Thing is now my professor says i can't change it. My game cds recently got damaged due to lending it to a friend. Crying or Very Sad I was wondering if it's possible, Can i please have a copy of the extracted sound files like the NPCs, monsters and sound effects from the game? This project is due this Friday and waiting for my order to come in will take a bit long. Please, any help will be appreciated.
My e-mail is polululuna@gmail.com Thank you.

Loving this site and all the work you put into Mods guys, recently picked up Fable again for PC in the Steam Sales and i'm finding a whole new love for the game again.

Right, my request, I could be wrong (not played in a while) but if you marry Lady Grey, i'm sure, like other marriages, she prefers Good aligned players to keep her happy (which doesn't make complete sense). Again, I could be wrong, and i've never played TLC, only Vanilla Fable, so if someone can correct me if i'm wrong that would be appreciated.

If i'm right, and she prefers good alignment over evil, is there a way to mess with Fable Explorer so that she prefers Evil characters?

Any help would be fantastic, thanks Smile

I been working on this HD Silver eye layout and I can't figure out what's wrong with It.;

The eyes are completely black when I load It up.

I am very intermediate with FE and Gimp so I know I did everything right.

Any suggestion's?

UPDATED! FIXED! : Download here: http://fabletlcmod.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&goto=69861& amp;#msg_69861

I used a online converter to fix the issue and loaded a new game.

Hi guys I recently started to mod fable, however I have found that creating weapons for fable is my limit. I have attempted to make masks and hats, however this has proven to be very tricky to do and without allot of guides on the subject its hard for me to pick it up. However it would be awesome if someone could make this particular mask for me and import it into fable.

I have zipped up a model of the mask along with the .mtl and the texture. The model is in .obj format. I have also included a screenshot of what the mask would look like in game, I just temporarily replaced another model.

I realise these things take time, and if anyone would be awesome enough to do this I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks for a great forum
