You're welcome!

Goon C looks like he just had a nice post-pandemic haircut :D

Hi again!

I've been looking into the Yakuza issue because there are still texture conflicts like brown hair and the occasional goatee appearing on the clean shaven black-haired Yakuza goons. I found something interesting:

It turns out that Texture A is causing the problem. It overlays goons using B, C and D - basically giving Takamoto a clone army. I experimented with making Texture A transparent (and restored Texture B) and now there are three distinct Yakuza goons. There is no unique goon using Texture A on its own so you won't be fighting any headless goon.

I checked on PS2 version of Legend as well which is old gen and it's the same, three types of Yakuza goons. There is a catch however that when you kill the goons, their heads disappear slightly faster than their bodies :confused:

Here's the edited male_yakuza_a.drm file on google drive via the link below. MachoBroccoli, if you're happy with this version then you can add it to archive ;)

Edit: If anyone is having issue with downloading the file, press the 'Download all' button at the top right of screen.


This is a fantastic find! I'll download and have a play with this myself :)

EDIT: I've had a play and yep, I'll be adding that to the archive! Good job dude!

Great and thank you! It's down to you for bringing attention to the Yakuza issue that inspired me to investigate after seeing similar oddities. :tmb:

Honeslty I was stumped on this one as I couldn't imagine the Yakuza goons Texture A variety being broken all this time.

Great update :)

i've implemented the new fix in my TPF solutions as well, for those who'd rather use texmod

Nice! I've added that link to the OG post so more people who use TexMod can find it =)

Hello everyone :o


A user on discord enquired whether there was a fix to correct the grey gap on Lara's belly during the Kazakhstan level. This issue also affect all winter no-coat outfits.

I've managed to fix it by moving part of the texture image one pixel as a time until the gap was closed.


Main menu:

Cutscene:

https://64.media.tumblr.com/c336e9fa...9d62b17358.png


Story mode:

https://64.media.tumblr.com/c5b3c0f1...12bf58c694.png


TexMod:
  • Orange/pink winter outfit is fixed in all instances.
  • Blue outfit is fixed in Kazakhstan main menu, story mode and cutscenes only. The model is missing its belly button in the manor or when replaying levels. It's just skin and no gap - blame bad UV mapping.

DRMs:
  • All winter outfits are fixed in all instances.
  • The belly gap does appear in manor costume selection if you are actively using the no-coat (blue) model.
  • All 14 DRM files included in the download are necessary, including the jacket ones otherwise you'll run into issues.

^Include edited texture file for anyone who prefers to build a TPF file for TexMod :tmb:

I am loving this activity around TRL.
So a quick summary to be sure. So far the things fixed with this project are:
- Arthur's face on the statue
- Male Yakuza variants
- Nishimura's glasses
- Portrait in the mansion
- Monitor screen in the mansion

And now the grey line on certain outfits. Do we use these new .drm files in the same way we used the previous ones?
Did I miss a fix in my list above?

Also what is the difference between using the .drm files versus the TexMod solution? I never used TexMod so I'm not sure what it is.

Oh and one more thing, the TexMod link included in the OP is wrong. The one originally posted by LateRaider works fine but the one in the OP is cut.

TexMod is a way to inject textures into the game without changing the game files. Some people just don't feel comfortable with changing the game files which is understandable. TexMod also has a logging mode which allows you to cycle through texture files with the option of extracting them which is handy for modding purpose.

The only drawback from using TexMod is the missing belly button issue as mentioned in my last post. I've edited 14 identical texture files in 14 DRMs, with 13 of these remaining identical - but the 14th texture had to be edited slightly differently to fix the missing belly button. TexMod treats these 14 textures as a single texture file.

Nice! I know she has similar issue while wearing shorts outfits, at least from what I know with Legend outfit she has grey lines between her legs lol.

JAMJOOM 17-03-21 18:21

I've just seen the issue you've described for the first time. Now I can't unsee it...

Also there's artifacts showing on the side of her thumb.

Any way to fix the snow in kazakhstan?
 
Thanks for all your work on fixing these issues. Does anyone know of a way to fix the transparent textures in the bike section in Kazakhstan.:confused:

I've been trying for a while now with texmod, but while i can replace the affected snow textures, they are still rendered partially transparent (they seem to fade to transparent on the edges?).:hea:https://i.imgur.com/VcsFEJE.png

Hey there

A lot of people have tried to sort this out but this is an issue that canít be fixed unfortunately. Thereís a problem with the actual mapping of the textures here and currently we donít have any tools to change that in the game

Raider1234 09-09-21 09:31

Thanks
 
Thanks Ameliorator,

That's a shame, but thanks for your message. Perhaps in the near future it will be possible, as I can see that there are people working on level editing for legend. Looks quite promising from the Youtube videos I saw:tmb:

Sorry to revive this, but how exactly do you actually install the fixes to Legend?

There are currently two ways to do this:
  • Gibbed: This unpacks the bigfiles so you can add the edited textures directly into the game files, this is a permanent change. There's a link to the archive download page at the bottom of OP which also come with instructions on how to do this.
  • TexMod: A third party app that overrides textures in memory. LateRaider made a tpf file containing the fixes from this thread, but I've since made an improvement to the Rutland fix. I can make a tpf file for this in addition to the other fixes from this thread if you're interested.

Also there are a lot of Legend texture issues so you might want to check out the following projects:

Ah, I didn't have the instructions so I must have downloaded the wrong thing, thanks!
