Higher Quality Daggerfall Sprites

Post by Kamer » Wed May 30, 2018 12:26 am

Hey, you guys have any high quality sprites from pre-release laying around? I'd like to get a collection of them.

Stuff like this:

Well, there's probably just a few sources for this king of stuff, including the NUKE Daggerfall special feature and Mark Jones' website. The Bestiary section of the early demo version contains preview animations of some monsters but apparently they just have more frames, albeit only from one angle:

I talked to Mark Johnson on the XL Engine forums and he said that he didn't have personal copies of his art created while with Bethesda:
And as taking anything from Bethesda was/is a strict NO NO (Facebook- Oculus anyone?) I do not have any assets that cannot be found online (Which I consider fair game). I wish I did though, that Daggerfall intro looked REALLY nice in higher resolution. You could really see Marc Jackson's artwork in the book. That was lovely stuff. [emphasis added]
There's also some stuff from Bethesda's website, not sure how useful.

That NUKE page actually has some stuff I'm looking for. Thanks a lot man!

Has anyone ever dumped or ripped the sprites from Battlespire?

That would get into dicey territory. Battlespire is still a pay-to-play game, so its assets are going to be protected by law. (We don't even know for sure the legal situation for DFU. So far we've trusted in the agreement OpenMW reached with Bethesda, but even that has its limitations.)

Small note, Ive just finished recreating two dancers from the Wayback machine site. Its quite hard because:

1st) in the downloaded GIF, all images are duplicated, took a while to realize that and adjust
2nd) those animations miss one frame, so you need to use that frame from a game, but that one has different attributes, like the position where its standing in a canvas, size ETC so again, adjusting, testing, adjusting, testing...

but after some efforts, I managed to make that work quite fluently. Difference in quality is there for sure as you get cca 2x the resolution of a source material (which I further upscale using XBR 4x algo)

In my spare time, I will have fun with other resources from that site. Thanks for a heads up
