igbFinisher is a program that runs finishing operations on igb files after exporting them from 3ds Max.


Features:
  • A program that can be used to perform finishing operations on exported igb files with the following features:
    • Automatically recognizes input assets based on file name
    • Renames files based on chosen character numbers
    • Makes duplicate copies for every compatible game and console
    • Hex edits assets if needed
    • Performs Alchemy operations on the assets if needed (including the global color fix and igGeometryAttr2 fix)
  • For compatibility, textures must be exported with the Marvel Mods GIMP Scripts, and assets must be exported with Alchemy 2.5 from 3ds Max 5. See the "Tutorials" section, below, for more information.
