So, in the beginnings, you need a program. The programs name is: gca_e. With this program, you can extraxt the .dat files.
1. - How to extract the .dat files???
So, we are now extract the xfile.dat. The first, you need to rename xfile.dat onto xfile.gca. Then you can extract the xfile.gca like this: File/Extract file. When the extract finished, you can search for files in the xfile folder.
2. - How to Skinning???
The serious lesson. We need a converter program, to convert TGA files onto BMP, or anything much. Then, you can create your own skin. But you need to know, whitch picture witch part if the model. But that's always other.
3. - How to setup your skins???
This is the last and easyest lesson. You just need to compress folder like this: File/Compress folder. Than you need to find that folder where you skin is (Caution!: You need a backup file from the first .dat files, and you need the extracted .dat files, to copy to the right place. So: when you update the em31 folder, you need to copy the em31 folder into the xfile/em folder!!!). Then, when the compressing is finish, you need to rename your new .gca file to .dat file, then copy into your RE4 folder. Thats all about skinning.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Resident Evil Apocalypse. We love games like Resident Evil 4 that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
