After seeing minazuki's stuff it seemed like something interesting to do so I threw this together.
update: added in hairstyles through shoes, finished adding in clothing so every single item of clothing, from hair colouring to shoes does something to the outfit.
update 2: every single hair/hat outfit item now provides an accessory, except the tennis headband because i have never seen that in game before, ever.
update 3: changed the bigfile.xml to be formatted less messy, hopefully this should fix problems folks have with packing
11/1: quick fix on the summer dress, one piece pajama, bald hairstyle and arthur's helm
www.mediafire.com/?gqha7bu17h2741x Basically just lets you switch clothes with almost every outfit in the Royal Flush Plaza. All the clothing and head items should change you into different outfits. This includes the hair colourings and items in SportsTrans now!
Shoes will now change the hairstyle; default boots is default hair. However, many hairstyles clip like this: But not all will do that.
Instructions are the same as every other model replacement mod, unpack npcs.big with gibbed's tools, replace files, repack and then replace the npcs.big. Also remember to place the /data folder in your dead rising 2 directory, as so the skeleton's not all jank.
here's some pictures that probably explain it better:
update: very janky hair changing, maybe 3-4 styles work decently
you got the right idea, changing the xml and scenedescription, but it seems like for the scenedescription you need to use a hex editor of some sort for it to work, because it's formatted using 36-bit hex
or that's what the program says anyways.
also, huge update that puts in just about every single unique outfit.

This is so sweet dude. I had the same idea aswell. Kudos for doing it faster man!
Edit: Im actually getting the same problem as the chap from Hong Kong. Gibbeds packer is crashing when you try to repack after putting your replacements in. Ive put them in the original npcs.big and it still doesnt seem to work so I think it might have something to do with youre recent update or something like that. Finally, why have you included cast_katey.big? Was that deliberate?

Same issue pal. This sort of thing has happened to me before when ive changed stuff in the bigfile.xml, usually when its looking for a file thats not there. Thanks for having a look so soon but it hasnt worked :/
