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...

Re: XL Engine source code release!

Ah, reverse psychology! So it's not a prank after all. This is very interesting, but I'm not fully understanding what this source code release means yet (i.e., whether Lucius' code on GitHub is 1/3rd, this is another 1/3rd, and the missing game-specific code is another 1/3rd?). Is this intended to b...

Re: OpenTESArena 0.6.0 Released!

The actual difference is between whether you are using a MIDI selection that uses the .XFM MIDI files or one that uses the .XMI MIDI files. In the former case only one dungeon track is played, but in the latter multiple tracks can be played. You know, I was actually suspicious of this, and you've c...

Re: OpenTESArena 0.6.0 Released!

I haven't had any noticeable problems using saves I made in the CD version in the floppy version. Good to know. Maybe it's going to be easier than I thought. I'll try to get to CD version support and original save file loading sometime in the next few months. I was just brainstorming a replacement ...

Re: OpenTESArena 0.6.0 Released!

I've noticed that the GOG version is not detected (CD version) . Do you have plans to implement it in a future? Apart the voice in some parts of the game, is the cd version very different from the floppy? Yeah, I do have plans for the CD version. In the grand scheme of things, it shouldn't be hard ...

Re: OpenTESArena 0.6.0 Released!

By the way, I didn't know some of the most iconic tracks in Daggerfall's soundtrack were in Arena already. Yeah, some of them like SunnyDay and Overcast are the same, converted from XMI/XFM format to HMP/HMI. I have always loved the track sounding in the first part of the video. The arrangement is ...
