Modify the mdlx file by specifying the text file output by io_export_mesh_for_modify_mdlx.py with the option -c of modify_mdlx.exe.

1) Select the mesh object you want to export and execute File-> Export-> Mesh for modify_mdlx (.cfg/.txt) from the menu.
2) Press the Export Mesh button with the output file name as MESH.txt, for example.
3) Then open a command prompt and change to the folder containing MESH.txt.
4) Enter the command as follows.
> modify_mdlx ORIGINAL.mdlx -c MESH.txt -o NEW.mdlx

If there are no problems, an mdlx file will be created that reflects the editing in blender.
Even if you see a lot of WARNINGs, you can usually ignore them.


If you want to modify the mdl file of Death end re;Quest 2, add the option --derq2 when executing modify_mdlx.exe.
> modify_mdlx --derp2 ORIGINAL.mdl -c MESH.txt -o NEW.mdl


The number of bones specified by the vertex weight is limited to 4 per vertex, and if it is exceeded, modify_mdlx.exe will end with an error.
I don't remember where to call it, but blender's weight paint mode has the ability to limit the number of bones per vertex.

Below are the steps to remove the skirt from Minessa.

1) Change the three parts to remove the faces of the skirt.

2) Then the mesh object named 00372:15:0 will have no faces.

3) If there is no face, modify_mdlx will end with an error, so add a small face inside the body in an invisible place.
This time we will add a face near the bone BDB_CE_NA_SPINE_01_004.
Add a square face with Add->Plane, split it into two triangles with Face->Triangulate Faces, and remove one of them.
Then, in the weight paint mode, set the weight of the three vertices to 1.0 with BDB_CE_NA_SPINE_01_004.

4) Select the three modified parts and then export with File->Export->Mesh for modify_mdlx (.cfg/.txt).
If you open the exported file with notepad etc., there should be a lot of lines starting with "vertex".
If not, something is wrong when exporting.

5) If you execute the following command at the command prompt, you should have a skirtless mdlx model.
> modify_mdlx 00372.mdlx -c MESH.txt -o NEW.mdlx
I have attached the modified mdlx model and the MESH.txt used for the modification.

To port a costume to another model, you may need to combine or split parts, change the bone name to match the model you are porting to, or need weight paint.
Even if the destination has the same bone, it may not be used in motion.
In that case, it is necessary to devise such as substituting with another bone.
it is possible that the transplant will not be successful.

It might be a good idea to move talks about Death end re;Quest and Dragon Star Varnir to their own threads or create them if they do not exist yet.

I'm not sure what you're not doing.
Before working on another model, I think it's a good idea to make sure that you can change Minessa's model with the steps I posted.

Making a video is going to take a lot of time and I'm not familiar with it so I won't do it.

If you're talking about creating mods for Death end re;Quest and Dragon Star Varnir rather than how to edit the mdlx model, I think it's better to move the thread too.

Okay no video then thats fine ,but can you do those models for me that i posted earlier ,cuz i dont understand how you did it with Minessa and dont know what i must do to save the Changes done to Charlotta and ill try what you did with Minessa and btw Png2tex doesnt work for me ,but the other programs in Tex Tool works okay

You need the mod, so you should understand how to do it and be able to do it yourself.

To save your changes in blender, you need to select the changed parts and then use the exporter as described in step 4.
After that, just open a command prompt and use modify_mdlx as in step 5.

If you can't convert a png file with png2tex, try converting it to the same format as the dds file created by converting the tex file with tex2dds, and then converting it with dds2tex.

If you delete all the polygons, the tool will end with an error, so add a small polygon in a place that does not look like step 3.
Then you can click on a small polygon to select an object.
You can also select an object by clicking on the name with the orange triangle icon in the list on the right.

The shape of the chest is wonderful.

For each unerased part of the skirt, add a small polygon in an invisible place.
It's the same as the previous model.

Alternatively, you can divide the part you want to keep into several parts and port them to the parts you want to completely erase.
An empty part will result in an error, so avoid it in some way.
