    Okay(: First off, open brawlbox. :

    Either load your .pac or .pcs and simply just click "file" "save as" and Save it as either, .pac or .pcs

    Simple as that!  :3

    It's not as simple as that...

    You have to load your character file. I recommend the .pac file. Not the FitChar.pac (because newcomers tend get confused about this way too easily), the FitChar0#.pac (ex: FitMario02.pac).

    Then just save as a .pcs

    But for the other way around...Loading the .pcs and saving as a .pac will most likely, if not always freeze/crash the game.

    But if your model only comes with a .pcs, export the model and textures. Then open up an unmodified FitChar0#.pac, replace the model and textures, and save as a .pac

    I do appreciate that you made a tutorial for a common problem, but your current tutorial won't really work. Undecided

    i made this for the people who download hacks that only have a .pac or .pcs...

    this has always worked for me.

    Odd. Normally if a .pcs was saved as a .pac, it would be glitchy or crash. <.>

    That's only going to happen if you save a PCS file as a PAC file without setting the compression to none.  I've tried this myself, and it works well for me.

    Oh yeah.

    Honestly, I think it's much easier to save a PCS as a PAC with Compression set to "None" rather than the method you suggested.  I had a hard time following that on my first readthrough of your comment. XD

    It wasn't that you weren't clear, it's just a lot more work than setting compression to none.

    As an official newcomer, what is the CORRECT way of making a .pcs or .pac file because everyone on here is saying different things about how they did it?

    to make a PAC
    simply save as a PAC file with compression set to "None"

    to make a PCS
    save with compression set as "LZ77"


    where is the "compression"?
    in brbx, click the blue "ARC" file, and you should see the compression at the bottom of the right window

    easiest way is to save as .pair
    this makes both a pcs and a pac, automatically copressing the pcs and not compressing the pac
