A suite of FFXIV modding tools for Linux.

Note: This is alpha level software, not intended to be usable in any capacity at the moment. Thus, I have not tagged any stable releases.


This repository contains many parts of Novus, such as:

  • Argcracker, a program that can decrypt game arguments.
  • Armoury, a graphical gear and character viewer.
  • Bone Decompiler, a tool to decompile Havok skeleton files into TexTools-compatible JSON.
  • EXD Viewer, a graphical program to view Excel (EXD) sheets from the game.
  • Explorer, a graphical interface to explore DAT files.
  • Model Viewer, a graphical model viewer for MDL files.


Please refer to the building document for instructions on how to build Novus.
