There are tutorials that detail how to find the png's for these players and also how to change the arm lengths yourself. Below is also a thread that shows you exactly how and what to edit to get the desired arm lengths.

You need to download Notepad++ and use that to do your edits. Regular notepad makes the game crash.
Right click the RDAT and there will be an option to edit with notepad++

There's a fix for that. You can use portions of the RDAT from another png that has a similar body. First use notepad++ to edit the RDAT with the full info. Then select and copy everything between "eye white": 0, and "RIGVERSION": "2" . Then open/edit the mostly empty RDAT. Put your cursor at the end of "eye white" behind the "0", then hit enter so your cursor goes to the line below right above "RIGVERSION". Right click mouse and hit paste and all the editable stuff will now be in the RDAT. Save it and you should now be able to edit the arm lengths for that RDAT.

No problem.Now the smaller head has to be done in blender and you'll have to seek out the experienced modders. I'm in the very novice stage. LOL

For whatever reason I couldn't find Gervin's png. It only had the face file. Here's the link for downloads.

can you merely copy the section youd like to change rather than copy the entire data string and tweak the whole body. my example is DeJuan Blair CF1611, for what im trying to do his body as is is perfect with one exception the short arm syndrome. so cau i just cut and paste the two lines responsible for arm length?
