BFD3 / 8-Bit Kit Expansion Presets

Postby sharkytowers » Mon May 14, 2018 11:43 pm

I've installed the latest dl version of the 8Bit kit expansion. I've installed it as BFD3 only AND BFD "compatibility" mode, but I can't for the life of me get any 8-bit presets or kits to show up. The kit pieces will. As far as I remember in BFD and BFD2 the 8bit kit had presets. Am I mis-remembering?

If not, is there a place to dl the presets and kits alone? I could just manually copy them to the folder. I have rescanned my content paths multiple times and added "scan BFD2 folders".

EDIT: I'm using BFD3 latest version BTW.

I'm on my way to work so don't have time but if you don't find them between now and tomorrow I'll upload them.

Alternatively, search the forum for 8bit kit and presets as l know I've uploaded them for someone else recently.

Thanks Steve! I'll do a search and try and find them.

EDIT: Steve I saw in another thread you mentioned using an extractor to manually open the RAR files and pull out the presets. I did that and added them to the hidden "Programdata/fxpansion" directory and I think I'm good to go. I have 3 presets and 13 kits. Thanks so much! I never thought to do that.

Cheers.

2nd EDIT: Now I found your post: viewtopic.php?f=49&t=7743271&p=270994&hilit=8bit+kit+presets#p271440

And now I have everything. Thanks again. This is great.

Thanks for the link to the 8 bit kit presets and kits thanks!
Do you also have the grooves?

However, the first kit preset '8BK Classic 808 kit 1' - does not load - just the little yellow triangle with exclamation mark error icons over each kit piece as it can't find the samples presumably - all the other presets work fine though.

Please help thanks,

Gav

That's really odd, I just opened that kit and got the same thing so unless I'm able to figure out why I'm not sure I'll
be able to help but I'll look into it. To be honest you're probably not missing much as from memory it's very similar to
'8BK Classic 808 kit 2.

Right, I've found it (kind of)

If you don't have the original install files you'll need to download part 2 from your downloads section.
Once downloaded, extract with 7-Zip or WinRar, then check the extracted folder and look in, 8-Bit Kit\Installer\Payload\System\Kits
and you'll find the 8BK Classic 808 kit 1.

It's a BFD2 kit but that's okay, just copy both parts (kit file and TGA file) to C:\ProgramData\FXpansion\BFD3\System\Kits (if you're on windows or use the import feature in BFD3.

Hi Steve,

That seems to have worked thanks - though I had to delete the existing BFD3 version of the same file name from the kit folder for it to work.

There still aren't any 8bit kit grooves though - do you know where they are?

Thanks again,

Gav

I just found some but I'm not sure where I got them.

Just unzip them to wherever you keep your grooves and do a contents rescan, when you want to find them
just type the 8bks prefix in the grooves search box.
