GFE (Game File Explorer) Is a program which extract entries from .PAK files from Eye ofthe beholder series and Lands of lore
There are some entries with extension .SHP
.SHP are binary image files which Westwood uses to store wall graphics
but wall graphics does not extracted as a normal image bmp or png
neither Game File Explore nor Extendable Wad Editor
both programms extract all entries and read the binary and appears the imase only for .CPS files .CMP files
.shp files does not encrypted yet.
I tried to exract graphics from EOB and Lands of Lore but I extact the grpahics with other way.
for example , Eob2 has a file with name
this file has all map for level5
all .maz file are the maze files from EOB series
the EOB1 has these files in .PAK files stored.
I used the UGE Ultimate Game Editor.
the UGE is a game editor , hex editor like.
I edited all .maz level files and replaced all bites to 00.00.00.00.00.00....
in hex editor.
This means when I load the games some time game was crashed and I tried not deleting all hex bytes I found the level bytes and I started to delete normal bytes.
every 00.00.00.00 four bytes I was delete one square.
Each square has 4 bytes for four sides.
for example 01.02.01.02 means north_side.south_side.east_side.west_side for each square
if you will replace all bytes from 01 to 00 or 20 , you can make an empty
If you will try to change four bytes like this 01.00.00.00 you have only one
side of north wall appear and other sides will not appear.
So you can have one wall to grab it with screen grabber
this is an example to see what I mean.
So with this way I have an empty room with a neat wall , if I try many bytes as 01.00.00.00 or 02.00.00.00 or 03.00.00.00 etc...
I have all graphics wall palette from the game and grab the walls with a
So I clear all background and I have many neat walls like this:
This is an exit door. From Eye of the beholder.
This is a small sample for all of my hacking , drawing , grabbing
graphics so far for creation of my RPG editor dungeon master like
So if some one wants graphics I have plenty of graphics , I am grabbimg
graphics for this game since 1996 I have 100s of ready grabbed graphics
but now I want to grab from lands of lore easiest than this way because i have to recreate all graphics and take along time.
Lands of Lore and Eob Graphics extractor , NICEEEEEEEE Idea
If someone wants graphics , sent me an e-mail to post a URL here to download all of them for the new RPG.
Thank you very very much
