OpenTESArena 0.10.0 Released!

Hello all, I've been trying to get wilderness generation in for months, and I was finally able to get it working! Every city on the world map now has its original wilderness that the player can explore. CD version support is also now on par with the floppy disk version, so if you have Arena from GOG...

Re: .GFX format?

:+1: I looked into it a bit, and if the .CEL files in question are MAGE.CEL, ROGUE.CEL, and WARRIOR.CEL, then they were copied from Arena and are the little video files for the streams of magic that appear after answering a character question :) In my .FLC decoder, the prefix chunk type in .CEL file...

Re: .GFX format?

If it's any help, Arena has a .CEL format, which is a variant of .FLC. I don't know anything about Daggerfall's .CEL format though, sorry :( https://github.com/afritz1/OpenTESArena/blob/fbc7b00dcba7195ade185c9d668389ec3f0b2751/OpenTESArena/src/Assets/FLCFile.h#L11 // An FLC file is a video file.

Im glad for this project. Arena engine never really worked on my pc. So this means one day I might be able to actually play it in this modernized state!
Thanks. Let's hope so. There's still a lot of work to do, but the strategy of 'slow and steady wins the race' has been working well so far.

OpenTESArena 0.9.0 Released!

Hello all, here is another release for my Arena engine. In this version, I added distant land, sky, and space rendering, and the ability to enter and exit palaces. Sorry for not posting the previous release here, but it looks like someone's got my back :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erflKPFAIOU ...

Re: OpenTESArena 0.7.0 Released!

Is there a tool out there for extracting art and tiles from TES1? Of course, it's probably planned for the new engine to externalize this data into pngs for modders at some point. Just thinking it would be fun to tinker on this game's art as we wait for the engine to mature. I don't have any tools ...

Re: OpenTESArena 0.7.0 Released!

afritz1, WOW, congrats also to You. A wonderful project! I have so many fond memories of Arena! Thanks. I didn't know what Arena was until 2011-2012, so unfortunately I don't have all the same memories of it as others, but maybe my project will fix that :). The first time I beat Arena was last year...

Re: OpenTESArena 0.7.0 Released!

Please consider revising the "modern" control style or adding an "ultra-modern" option that mimics what is currently possible in dfunity: -locks the crosshair to the center of the screen -looking around doesn't involve clicking, it's what moving the mouse does by default. -swinging a weapon doesn't...

Re: OpenTESArena 0.7.0 Released!

is it really procedurally generated ad infinitum every time you play? Actually no, from what I understand. Every location has its own random seed. Each chunk of wilderness is 64x64 blocks and each wilderness is 64x64 chunks. I believe the city/town/village at a location is always in the center of t...
