Dopefish help!?
i played all the build engine games! and now i am going to take my shot at editing them! so here is my question.

for shadow warrior there are things i want to edit and i am not sure how to they are:

for shadow warrior the 3dr logo at the beginning the lo wang animation after that and then shadow warrior logo! i am not sure of the location of these files i opened up the .art files and found the stuff for the menu but nothing else could some one direct me into the right direction.

secondly how would i change the ninja stars into a handgun i have the textures but how would i do this programming/engine and graphic ways?

btw i have some programming knowledge and some knowledge of the build engines as i have tried to experiment with it 4 years ago, and recently it is a great engine but once i can edit everything i can i can make a great game!

Im not sure but i think they are in the animation files (.anm) not in the .art.
I think theres a utility that allows you to create new .anm, but im not sure if it works with SW. Search in rtcm, you may find... http://archive.dukertcm.com/

About the shuriken replacement i think its not possible, SW ports dont offer much editing possibilities.

oh well thxs for the info becuase i am willing to rewrite some of the code but is there a .grp explorer becuase i really hate manually extracting random things from the .grp files with kextract


K well i found the shadow wariior animation which i wanted but now i dont know were the 3dr logo i?

I remember someone on these forums made a program called GRPView or GRP Viewer or something, but I dont remember who or where to find it anymore. I suggest Google

I assume you are in windows, read the readme, the files have to be in C:\Program Files\FileView and you have to open the registry file to make it work.
After a restart, right click the .grp and press fileview.
It works with other files as well.

this isnt tomething i've tried, and it's hardcoded, so you'd need the source code and you'd need to tamper with that, therefore you'd end up with a completely different .exe file (well, it would be different in some respects)

You cant, and if I were you, I'd stop now. As your gross misuse of the English language is representative of you, I'd never play your mod ever because you probably lack the skills to release anything decent, if at all.

Shadow Warrior is one of the hardest ones to modify.

I'd still rag on ye if you were Spanish, because English is a second language in ol' Spain.

Also, your skills obviously ARENT that good, since you're asking for help on something that is nigh on impossible to mod. Go play any other Shadow Warrior mod, and it just replaces graphics. Learn to mod something a little easier, like Duke.

There are no programmers, only one guy is working on a source port. Modding Shadow Warrior is beyond a challenge, its an unneccesary chore.

Although Nimoy is rather too vigorous in his posting, he is mostly right. He can't mod a game if he's not a coder and doesn't know HOW to mod SWarrior in the first place apart from a simple gfx replacement mod. I guess models ingame can be replaced, but the only real modding would be from the original source code.

DarkPortrait, theres very few active coders here for SWarrior. Those that are active are coding the SWarrior ports and addon tools and are likely not interested in a impossible task like you are thinking of doing. If they were interested in modding SW to that level, then they'd be doing it already.

So, whats the game you have published and what other graphics or games have you modded ?

Not at all. I know very well what can and cannot be done in the game, and its the very reason I never attempted.

i understand were both of you are coming from and i do know it is possible and hard but i am willing to take up the challenge and even if it does take quite a while i will finish it i have the graphics all ready and just need to replace one weapon so far and thats pretty much all i need to do right now.

well you see we will be modding the source code but one of my team members is left us for a while so im kinda looking for a new person to help with my mod.

im a 3d/2d artist and havent really modded many games while i know how, and the game we got published was a 2 in one game which one game used torque and the other was made with another engine i cant remember but one game was a fps shooter and the other was a platformer game, they were sold only in winnipeg at a local store that published it (it was small time) and they never got around to making a webstite for it but they games are being remade and might be republished big time some time when we are done! we made around $2000 all together which was ok for us as we are indie game developers so yeahh...

we have like 5 projects being worked on and loosing our main programmer is kinda really bad so thats why i was looking here!

if anyone is experienced with atari2600 dissassembly or development pm me we are looking for a replacement becuase our game will be published when done on atariage!

Or has a mac os x lemme know so u can help us!

hope that awnsers your question and i realize that this is going to be a hard and long task but it will be done some time or another! like i said with lots of projects some are going to delayed.

(sorry for the long posts when i start typing its like i cant stop!)
