    So I'm not 100% sure on how to ask this or even all the info related to it but Imma try.
    So the fan Amorous discord would love to mod it too keep the game's story going, the thing is literally no one in the discord knows a lick of modding or code...
    However if I'm not mistaken the game shouldn't be any harder to mod than Stardew and Terraria, due to the fact that it seems to be mostly .xnb .json and .dll, which if I'm not mistaken is what Stardew and Terraria are made up of, right?
    Now I've got no clue what this games engine is... (might be the game engine, Microsoft XNA Game Studio uses) but still I need to know if adding more content to the game is possible or not! But it seems to be possible to edit things on character sprites.

    Long and the short I'm looking for help with the task of creating "content expansion" mods.

    Also has a discord for this.
    Its in the shout box...

    I've tried extracting the .XNB files with a few different programs, including the GameTools Suite's GXView, but I consistently get the error message that these files aren't, in fact, .XNB files, meaning the traditional editors used for Terraria and Stardew Valley are useless for this game. I'd personally really like to know what software they used to make the game, because that's where the issue lies.

    I figured out the that engine for amorous is FNA, which is a engine based on Microsoft XNA, it's written in C#, so essentially think like Terraria or Stardew.

    I hope that helps!

    Yeah, this is something a bit weird about them. You can use XNB tools on them, but you need to extract them first - since the actual XNB file are gzip compressed inside.
    So you need to extract the ".xnb" with an archiver (7-zip, Winrar, etc.) to get the XNB inside.

    Then you can use your XNB tools and stuff on it.

    Modding Amorous should be pretty easy seeing as its built opon Unity
    I've attempted to Mod the game myself and from what I can tell the Developers didn't try to obfuscate the Code in any way which should make it easy enough to just edit files.

    if theres interest I might go ahead and try to write some tools to edit Amorous's Assets more easily

    I haven't been on these forums for what feels like a year or so, its good to be back. I've see a lot of talk about the game no longer being developed, which sucks as this game is awesome. I'm glad to see the community for this game is still alive and kicking though, especially modding since it seems like the only future for this game is mods which isn't bad at all, as it lets everyone contribute. Unfortunately I'm no modder, but maybe my words will encourage any modders who read it to keep working hard at getting something going. What we have here is an amazing game with some of the most unique stories and characters of most dating games, plus there aren't many furry dating games out there(that are this good anyway), and I'm sure I speak for most when I say this game has a great community as well, and I'm sure if we stick together we can all make something great out of whats left.

    I know this is a lot to write for a furry dating game but I truly believe we have something special.
    This message may not be seen by many but I hope my words mean something to those reading.
    I've said this from the beginning and I still believe it 3 years later. I love this game, and I can't wait to see where it goes.

    With much love, Legend
