For those who play SDGO and want to MOD the games apperance.

Theorically, modding the Data pack is not allowed by the rules of any of the major servers, I do not take responsibility of any risk involved in this process.

Be considerate, do NOT attempt to make any changes that leads to game inbalance (e.g. messing with meshs and movesets of suits)

Also, always backup your GPackData.zpk and GPackData.zpx before you make any changes.


In order to screw with SDGO's massive database, you will need to have at least 2GB of freespace to store an unpacked version of the data pack. No, don't ditch your backup files for the diskspace.


First of all, download sdgundamext.exe as provided, then uncompress it in the game directory. And wait, don't go double clicking it, it doesn't work that way.

Now, double click on "Unpack.bat" and a command line console should fire up, let it run. (Takes a long while, do yourself a favor and get something else to do) After the job is done, you should find a new folder called "SDGO_Temp". Inside the folder is what that's supposed to be sealed inside GPackdata.zpk and GPackdata.zpx.

Next up, put in whatever you have on your hand, like Operators, UI modifications, In-game effect changes (don't ask me for them). You can also screw with the chat filters. For testing purpose, I've prepared a cleaned filter with almost all banned words removed as an attachment. Simply replace the respective files within SDGO_Temp. You can also play with the Blockip.txa if you're using an IP from a banned region. (e.g. KR server bans off HK, Macau, Mainland China, Japan and Taiwan IPs)

At this point, if you haven't backup your GPackData.zpk and GPackData.zpx, do it now. It will be your lifesaver in case that something fails. You will also need a clean and unchanged copy to apply any official patch.

After doing all the changes as well as confirming that you've backed up the original files, double click "Repackage.bat" and enjoy the wait while sdgundamext.exe rebuilds the database. It is normal that the filesize will be different.

At this point you're good to go! Run the game and enjoy your filter-free game or whatever you changed.



Step-by-step instructions for monkeys:
1. Backup your GPackData.zpk and GPackData.zpx
2. Download sdgundamext.exe (bundled with Unpack.bat and Repackage.bat)
3. Extract and put all three into the directory of SDGO
4. Double-click Unpack.bat and wait for it to do its work
5. Enter the new folder "SDGO_Temp" and make whatever changes you want
6. Go back, and double-click Repackage.bat, again wait for it to get job done. Filesize change is normal
7. Play

Important notes:
- Under all circumstances, keep at least one original copy of both GPackData.zpk and GPackData.zpx
- DO NOT touch core gameplay elements like the unit ability files, you're shaming yourself by doing so, also harming the entire modding community.


SDGO Custom Operators
I'll be giving out Custom Ops that i have used before. Some are from GGftw also, so i don't thank me for all of them, others i just find.

I WILL ALSO BE UPDATING ON OPERATORS I FIND SO FEEL FREE TO COME BACK AND CHECK.
ALSO SOME HAS SOME MINOR FAN SERVICE, I WILL NOT POST HENTAI OPERATORS, SO DOWNLOAD AT YOUR OWN RISK IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SEE MINOR FAN SERVICE.

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3T6OW7ZH - BGM of guitar (Xenokey)

Create your own Custom Operator

Download this: http://www.mediafire...waadf84gzgmbbh1

1. The .exe is a self-extracting archive, set the path to anywhere you like.
2. Start the program by going into the folder in which you extracted the program, and open "Sdolmain.EXE"
*You should hear Haro sounds when it opens*

3. Click on the SECOND button from the top, it will ask you to find the SDGO directory (whatever folder that has the GPackData.zpk, as the whole process revolves around this file).




4. After setting the game directory, click on the THIRD button from top.
*it will ask for another directory*




5. Set the second directory to the folder in which you store the TXRS and SDRS folders(basically, a folder that only contains the operator files).
6. Click on the FOURTH button from the top for preview, FIFTH button for sound preview(for any message window that pops up, just click "ok").


7. SEVENTH button from the top is for installing the operator by packing it into the GPackData.zpk.




8. After clicking on the seventh button from the top, it will have a dialog window that says "First time using this program, wait 10 minutes" and begins to make a backup of your files.


9. A dos window will pop up at the same time with another window with the "ok" button on it, DO NOT CLICK... I repeat, DO NOT CLICK ON IT UNTIL THE DOS WINDOW CLOSES ITSELF!!! Otherwise your game file will mess up and your PC self-destructs.




10. After the backing-up of files, just keep waiting until the second dos window (which unpacks the GPackData.zpk and repacks it with your Operator file in it) disappears.
*at the end of the re-packing, the dos window will ask you some questions... just type "y" and press enter for all of them.*

11. Enjoy your new Operator.

12. The fifth button from bottom is for making Operators, click on it and you will see something like "副官E", the E indicates operator E. The one on top left corner is default operator. You will have to import images and sounds (a list at bottom is provided, you can change all sounds of the operator). I am not 100% sure on how to use this so just make the operator with other guides, then put everything in a folder instead.

13. The 4th button from bottom is for deleting custom operator.
14. last three buttons links to chinese websites for MS data, Improvement pack(like operators, bgm, bg, effects) download, and download old version, respectively.


TO RETURN THE GAME TO NORMAL CONDITION FOR UPDATING(failure to do so will result in failed update):
Open one of the new .bat files made under your game directory and it will finish the work by itself while you wait and maybe watch a episode of anime or two (I highly recommend re-visiting some older gundam series).

      don't have any voice. If i use any Operator(E/B/C..) , Is this Mod still working?

      Delete
    3. sone OP have vice some don't, depends on the creator. as far as I know Charlotte Dunois OP has one (cus thats the only OP i've use aside from hatsune miku OP). And no it wont work on the other OP cuz the custom op is set to change only the default op.

      Delete
    4. Oh....but why i see there's a voice on Setsuna Operator in some videos??
      And if i wanna change to Charlotte Dunois OP , just unpack and paste the MOD again?? And...Hatsune Miku OP link Broken.

      Delete
    5. Sry , the Miku Link not broke ><! I mean , what if i already use Guilty Crown UI , Hatsune Miku(Plus Lobby/room/etc. Backgrounds) still working ? The Lobby/Room/Etc..

      Delete
    6. GM...Charlotte Dunois OP got voice But only at Lobby?
      When Im playing there's no OP voice at all(SP,Destroyed..)??

      Delete
    7. now that's strange, cuz i've used that OP and it has voice....
      well my Charlotte OP is still here so im just gonna upload it.

      Delete
    8. yeah it still works. if you copu the UI first them Miku OP, the Miku OP will overwrite the lobby/room/etc. in other words some part of the UI will be the miku one.

      and yeah, if you wanna change to charlotte OP you have to do the whole process all over again.

  22. GM is the "unpack"-er (sdgundamext) still working for the latest SDGO SEA? i tried to unpack, but it stopped halfway. only anrs folder appears on SDGOTEMP folder. can anyone confirm please thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  23. At the lastest version in SDGO SEA, we just receive a 700mb folder SDGOTEMP because sdgundamext stop halfway. Do sdgundamext have a update version or exist a replace program for this ?

    ReplyDelete
  24. i also have the same problem with those two guys ... unpacking stopped but did not finished unpacking ... can anyone help us for a newer method?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Shows over folks. The Gpackdata's for the servers (Including SEA and North America) have been modified to prevent this file from unpacking them properly. Effective immediately this method of modding the game files No Longer Works.

    your only hope to mod textures is to either A) hope someone updates this unpacker to work with the newly coded Gpackdata's or B) to create your own unpacker.

    It was a good run while it lasted. Sorry folks

    ReplyDelete
  26. so there is no way to edit your mods for the game?
    (/-_-)/
    please update us if you know the new unpacker program...

  27. There is a new and updated unpacker and repacker that works, you'll have to google search it, it was updated by the original creator and can be found on their website.

    1. though this is kinda late

      the program extension is .c for sdgundamext...does that mean i have to use command prompt if i want to mod?

  29. How to create own Custom Operator:
    To edit the unpacked files rename voice files (.zsd) to .mp3 extension and picture files (.txr) to .png extension. Rename to original extension after that and insert like other operator files. Download other people's custom operators to find the correct files. I hope you like it!
