Me, Anotak and Polarity are working on SSF4AE modding. Developments are going really fast rn, and Anotak already got tools going for editing almost everything in the .bcm. I’m kind of not that involved with that because I’m not as good at actually reading hex apart from areas I already know i’m just going “oh cool what does that do oh shit”

There’s already progress on adding and changing cancels (the cancels are what it cancels to, so you still have to add in cancels for moves that don’t usually have it.) as well as some early stuff on meter editing, what motions a move uses, what inputs it uses etc.
So far, SSF4AE is a lot easier to mod than vanilla, but that might just be because Anotak’s on board again.

BTW: SSF4AE Koryu is already in progress:


I’m glad to hear you guys are back at it. Over in the vanilla skin thread, Recycler posted a couple of links to a chinese forum where someone had already edited the move inputs, so you might take a look at that if you get stuck. Are you guys going over things in a public thread? If so, I’ll lurk there, too.

I’ve been trying unsuccessfully to get vanilla bac/bcm into AE, but it’s crashing on me. I didn’t spend much time on it, though, so maybe I’ll get something going soon.

I also unsuccessfully tried stealing some of Oni’s “emission” materials to give other characters the same sort of fire effect on their bodies. No crashes on that one, but no effect either. Related: it appears that since the emz bundles are gone, the game doesn’t really care about the size of the *.obj.emm files, so I think you can just insert as much hex data as you want without it prompting a crash (i.e., no more worrying about overwriting/inserting). I’d like some verification on that, if anyone cares to look into it.

I guess at some point I’ll start documenting which files you actually have to edit for things to take effect so people don’t spend all of their time hunting for which files actually do what they want.


Things changed in the BAC file. cancels are different, and I think some of the stuff in the effects sections in the animations part are different too. BCM i’m not sure, it’s probably different too in some ways.

We’ve got a tool that helps for changing which inputs/motions a move uses, and motion editing has already been explored enough so that I know how to change it.


editing the move motions was known a long time ago but editing the buttons is a new discovery. we can inject new moves into a character’s file now, they don’t have to take the place of other moves as they did previously.


I’m trying to do some moveswaps, but they aren’t working, game refuses to load beyond the versus screen. I’ve looked all over for a detail tutorial, but I can’t find anything.


Is it possible to edit the color select tile in the character select screen?
For example, I swapped Seth’s Color 2 skin (red) with the scale skin mod, is it possible to extract the Red color select tile and edit it to something like a black tile or whatever? Just something to make it easier to remember where my costumes are.


bcm editing tools, requires .net framework

if you guys figure out any more of the input data in bcm lemme know. or if you figure out anytihng about the anim format in bac

and of course


Good shit, Anotak! Our first AE-specific tool! If you make anything else, let me know and I’ll add it tothe new wiki page.

@Jay Vasquez
I forget exactly which file it’s in, but if it’s like vanilla, there’s a character-specific file (*.tex.emz, maybe?) that stores them as hex color values. You can change the numbers using a hex color chart, like Web designers use.

@Running Wild
Which files are you renaming/swapping? There are a number of different moveset files now, and you have to swap the correct ones to get anything to work correctly.

@Good Game Player
o rly?? That’s awesome news. Dropping the emz containers really made a lot of things much easier, huh? :smiley:



face fix↓

make that difference i use hex editor open the "VEG.obj.ema"
search “Head” as beginning and delete something

Test Mod

ZBrush Tool


I have no idea what files I am supposed to swap. All I want to do is give Ryu Hakan’s moveset. I have no idea which files are what really lol.

If someone can make a tutorial on how to do that, that would awesome.

@Recycle: That is awesome. Super Street Fighter IV Mini-Mix lol.


thats modok


@running wild

I already wrote which files to swap you even have the filepaths… you only need skills in renaming/copying/pasting files.

RYU with HKN moves:
You take every files in the resource/battle/chara/HKN folder from to HKN.vfx.ttex.emz but HKN.fce.ema.
You rename them replacing “HKN” by “RYU” and put them in resource/battle/chara/RYU overwriting the original ones (make a backup)
Then you take HKN.bac and HKN.bcm in dlc/03_character_free/battle/regulation/latest/HKN folder
You rename them RYU.bac and RYU.bcm and put them in dlc/03_character_free/battle/regulation/latest/RYU overwriting the original ones (make a backup too)

Oil Shower!


Alright I get it now I think, I totally missed your explanation in your earlier post, sorry. That Juri acting like a kitty distracted me. Seems a bit time consuming though with all the copypasta lol. I tried it again, but I must of made a mistake somewhere because now the game just crashes after the versus screen. Hopefully there is a tool that makes it easier or something, I saw such a thing for vanilla SF4 PC.


Here are those same instructions in tutorial form (also linked in the wiki’s ‘tutorial’ page):


Oh that helped out alot. Thanks.


May anyone could help me there.

I followed the video tutorial in the website found here :
At the end the guys has 5 files but you, guys have 2 files …
and no need to say that it doesn’t work for me. I’m stuck at the loading stage screen.



You will only have 2 files from the vanilla col.emz. You will have 4 files from a vanilla cos.emz.


thank you Hunterk,
but when I download a skin mod I have only two files.
1 - .emb
1 - .emm

Did you watch the video ? If you did then you’ll notice that the guy have 5 files …
he deletes the .bsr and he replaces the 5 new files extract from the vanilla.
I did it but I have a problem because I’m stuck at the screen stage loading …

any idea ?


Yes, those 2 files are the components that made up the *.col.emz bundle in vanilla. If you’re just changing the color and not the model, those will be the only files you need.

Rename them to whichever slot you want them in and then overwrite what’s already there (make sure you backup your files first).


um so im kind of confused with how to implement costume mods? what do i need to download and what are the steps? i’m not trying to make anything just download already made costumes for me to use.
