@Shagg_E I have some questions

 

1) If I create a skin of a horse (for example), to create it I need to use exactly the same hierarchy as a skin default? Or can I just use the same name of the bones and their IDs? (with a different hierarchy)

PS: without use male01.dff method

PS.2: for GTA SA

 

2) The difference between the method of cop.dff and  vc_anim.dll is that the second one allows me to add a skin with more bones (to IG) without the other skins being broken?

 

I'm asking this because I've been adapting animations from one game to GTA SA. I have used hierarchies, bones names and IDs different from those of a skin default (and the method male01.dff). It worked very well, but the problem is that I have to replace the male01 skin and the default skins are broken.

 

sa_anim.dll could solve these limitations?

Yes, you can use a different hierarchy but with the same names and IDs without replacing male01.dff . It's exactly how I made these clothes in VC without replacing  cop.dff (here the skeleton).

Yes, that's it.

Well, you have two ways:
1) If you talking about people(more bones for fingers, for hair or face and something like that) - I can advise you to replace every human in your game(give them new hierarchy), so they will never be broken with using male01.dff method. And every guy in your mod will be able to move fingers and so on!

2) But if you talking about something like horses(and you don't want to touch the other characters) - the better way will be replacing horses' skeletons with the new hierarchy but the same amount of bones, same boneIDs, and names.

It may, but unfortunately, it doesn't exist ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
