Hi my friends , I am still working on my game and I am trying to extruct these graphics from
Lands of Lore 1 and Eob 3 Graphics , but the wall graphics are bit difficult , all westwood
games rpgs Eobs and Lands of lore 1 , to create the wall , takes a large amount of 8x8 tiles
like puzzle and make the walls , with my other one friend DK We tried to extruct graphics
from Lands of Lore. DK made a spacial background image like blue screen , so when you
play the game the floor backdrop changes to blue so you can grab the walls correct
with screen grabber.
DK made some map editor and some map compiler to compile Lands of lore mas to eob map
renames the level.cmp -> level.maz.
There is difference between eob data format and lands of lore format. In fact Lands of lore
mas are commpressed version of old eob format.
If you can edit the old eob files try to rename the as .cmp.
I thing must be recomressed to the Lands of lore format.
Make a big map empty with some walls but make your walls loose. Remember when you
open the old level.maz with hex editor you have 01.01.01.01 for one square
eatch 01 is the side of the square so you can replace the 01.01.01.01 to 01.00.00.00
So you will have a loose wall witch faces to the north only when you
try to see the wall from west to east you will have one frame of the wall.
The background will missing so with screen grabber you can do something.
I tried something with monsters but I didn't manage to grab them with extractors because i have probles with color palletes.
I have a lot of graphics from eob 1 and 2 wall graphics and lands of lore wall graphics
but I manage them with screen grabber , a lot of hacking a lot of drawing.
I try to grab correct monster my problem is the monsters.
Eob series monster have few frames animation
Lands of Lore Monster and DM 2 monster have many frames of animation.
Nice program to create new walls is the povray but you need to learn programming like language. and is difficult.
I tried to extract graphics from dungeon hack with XWE and i din't nothing
this programm mess all palletes.
The only way is the screen grabbing.
I try to put out the arc graphics from the Dungeon hack interface
because it covers my wall graphics upper left and upper right
if someone knows some patch witch removes the round
arc from interface send me the patch or instruction to my e-mail.
If anyone knows where do I find monsters tell me.
Thank you very very much.
If anyone wants help
sent me e-mail
