I just wanted to know if there's a way of extracting the graphics from any of the Catacomb games, since I was thinking of redoing them with a 256 colour palette.

In fact Adam Biser has a utility to do just the same thing. I wanted to do the same so I could make a catacomb tc for wolf3d, but I'm currently working on a tc so I can't help, but later. Anyway go to winwolf3d.tripod.com/ and download wdc, and use catbuster to open up the catacomb game and extract the art. Good luck, and if you do anything with them let me know!

This sounds cool. How big are the catacomb textures? (eg. 64x64, 32x32?)

64x64 but it's only low 16 color graphics.

Thanks Ringman! Too Cool

Yeah my idea is to convert all those 16 color graphics to the 256 Wolf palette...

I'm also too busy now with other stuff, but a Catacomb TC sounds like a cool idea as a future project. Very Happy

I'll post here if I do anything with the graphics...

You don't have to use CatBuster anymore, WDC does it all for you. Hopefully you have a version it will recognize, if you have problems, let me know.

No problems! Very Happy

WDC is great! I already extracted a couple of graphics, recolored them with RecolorBMP (wich is also great) and added detail by hand (with MSPaint).

I got some pretty cool results! I might show them sometime.

Are you re-doing the enemies and weapons too?

Well, not actually re-doing, more like modyfing. Though I'm taking some liberties, like changing the enemy´s colors and names.
So basically I'm extracting the baddies, walls, etc. and using the wolf palette to recolor them and add detail.

You would be suprised to see how cool those graphics look with the right colors Smile

Post some screens! I did a recolor of the succubus and made her red, but beyond that I didn't modify them too much. If you to plan on making a mod, just remember to change it so they always face you in the source code. Its a simple switch from true to false, I forget exactly where since its been a while since i messed with it.
