NOTE>> THIS DOES NOT WORK FOR MACS. This is for WINDOWS operating systems ONLY. I cannot help you with Mac computers as I've never owned one. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Well, it seems many people are having trouble. Now, I don't have a problem with helping people, but it seems it takes over an hour to course people through this, even if it works, and they usually don't have the time. So, here's a tutorial~

NOTE>> *Any questions? Just note me or ask in the comments. I'll help you out as clearly and best as I can to make sure this process is easy and simple for you~*

Since I use Mass Markings 3/MM3, I'll be looking at the download links. --->> themammons.forumotion.com/t54-… OR www.mediafire.com/?j3iw4t988ba… <<---
[Copy and paste or click the link(s)]  

IMPORTANT NOTE>> *Remember where you saved the markings file you just downloaded. It can be quite stressful and time-consuming if you don't know it's location. I recommend placing the file on your desktop, along with a shortcut to your Feralheart folder and/or downloads folder.*                          

After you've completed this step, simply see if you have an extracting programs. The most common ones are Winrar, Winzip, and 7-Zip. I use 7-Zip, but all three will do the job. All you have to do is find a download and set up the program so you can start extracting. Simple as pie.

Once you've gotten your extracting program, or are ready to use it, scroll over the downloaded markings file and scroll over "Open with" to find the extraction program you have/downloaded. Once doing so, scroll over the program, or click, and see if there's a "Extract Here/Extract Files" option. By doing this, you'll be able to access the file and place the pieces where they belong. This starts the tricky part, but it gets easier once you do it a few times.

IMPORTANT NOTE>> *You can NOT use any mods for Feralheart unless you have an extracting program. If you do not, please download one and save everyone's ears. Like I said, try searching up Winrar, Winzip, or 7-Zip.*

LINKS:




!!IMPORTANT!! I HIGHLY recommend checking for viruses once or twice before downloading from these sites. I have not tested them, as it's been ages since I got my own program(s). I am not responsible if your computer becomes infected! If you do put the blame on me, you WILL be ignored and any comments hidden from this journal, including being blocked if you attempt to harass me and/or anyone I know on this site.

After you've gotten the file extracted, simply open it up. In there should be a filed named "markings.cfg" with a bunch of folders, one big folder, or all the texture, mesh, etc. files inside the download. Open up your main Feralheart folder, located in your "C:" drive.

Directions:
1. Go to the folder, "Computer."

2. See that file, yes, that one with a giant smile.~ Click on it.

3. You see a folder named "Feralheart" correct? Good, this folder is now your best friend. Make a shortcut on your desktop if you have trouble finding it in future cases or ask for help.

4. Have you found the "markings.cfg" yet? If you have, drag it into your main FH folder. Don't do anything else, just drag and click, "Yes, replace." Make sure you keep a copy of the original in-case you don't like the markings or something happens. It can be tricky finding the original file, meaning, you'll have to re-download Feralheart to restore your game.

5. Now, go back to the file you downloaded. Good, you see all those other files? If it's in a folder, it would be labeled something around "Textures". Otherwise, it's all those scattered files aside from the "markings.cfg". Scroll over them all. Yes, make them all blue so that you have a collection of all the files at once.

6. Now that you have them, go back to your main Feralheart folder. See the folder inside labeled "Media"? Click on it. There should be a folder inside that media folder labeled "Textures". This is your friend when you want to replace most of the textures the game has and you don't like, such as scenery, flora & fauna, sky, portals, markings, feline/canine textures, etc.

7. Once the textures file is opened, go back to your downloaded file and drag them all over to the textures folder. Remember, don't do anything but drag and click "Yes, replace". You won't get the markings any other way.

8. After this, restart your Feralheart. If the markings aren't there or aren't showing up, simply replace the markings.cfg and texture/mesh/etc. files. Basically repeat the process from 1-8. If that doesn't work, try a different markings pack or try on a different computer.


Hope this helps!

That's strange, never had it where the original markings were completely wiped..
Can you try it again one more time? If it doesn't work, then I'll try to help.

What do you do if you've downloaded the markings, did all the steps, and stuff. But, no one's a marshmallow, I see their coat colors and that's it, when I go into create a character, it has the marking names there, when I click on it, they don't show up.

All I know works is repeating the steps a few times, see if it works, and it not, I honestly have no idea. Maybe it's just the markings pack and you need to use another one, but it could also be these instructions aren't for Macs. ;A;

Most of them installed correctly, thanks! nwn
Some, however, just show up as the default markings (e.g. Monster Hunter Epioth shows up as Butterfly, Zebra shows up as some sort of Spots), and some markings don't show up at all (e.g. Zira Stripe, Skeleton). Were these intended, or did I install it incorrectly?

Intended. Usually markings packs will have some of these issues; and it's on both models. The pack has issue with the markings being default or just not showing up. I couldn't find a way to fix it as of now. So no worries dear, it's normal  and your welcome!<3 uwu

 Poor me.
I have a mac.
And.
I can't open the media folder...
It says 
The operation can’t be completed because the original item for “media” can’t be found.
Can you help?

Unfortunately, I don't know how Macs work and thus, this was made for a Windows/Microsoft computer. I'm sorry I can't help you. :c The process must be different for Macs if it doesn't work..

i did all of these steps correctly and the markings are showing up in the 'Markings' Box in the Feral Heart game, my problem is that ALL of the markings just look like all of the starter markings and some of them don't show up on my characters at all, i'm not really sure why :I

Have you tried repeating the steps once or twice? Sometimes it's just glitchy and the markings won't show up the first time around. Other than that, I have never seen this happen before.. o///o

Where's the problem exactly? I've had a friend whose had this before and it was fixed with how I described. I'll have to look into it, but I need to know what your doing, like what exactly do you do when following each step. If you have a Mac, then I don't have any experience with those unfortunately.. :saddummy:

Okay, but I'm asking what exactly did you do each step, not the overall result. I can't really find a problem as it usually will fix after what I described unless you can tell me what you did for each single step, like "I did blahablah first, then this,--" and so on. :saddummy:

Ok so first I go to mediafire and click download, then I click open/save and download it after I moved it to my feral heart folder and then I add it to textures aswell after I drag the ling into WinRAR and  extract it into FH, then restart FH but it doesn't work

:iconsteampunkstudios:
SteamPunkStudios Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I see, I think you mixed up the steps.. First, you download, but to your desktop, not your Feralheart folder. Then, extract that file you downloaded OUTSIDE of the FH folder. Next, put the textures in Media>>Textures, and the items.cfg file in the main FH folder. THEN try, if it doesn't I'll keep working on a solution. Any further questions will be answered the moment I notice them, so don't fret. c:
