wadextract - v1.0. Small tool to extract sprites/flats

Post by CyberDragon »

wadextract v1.0 for GZDoom

At this stage, this cmd-line Linux tool can only handle
extracting (and manipulating) sprite & flats graphics
(extracted as 32-bit RGBA PNG images).

Other lumps inside DOOM WAD are just extracted as they are.

Current PNG-image manipulation options:

- Alpha channel (aka transparency)
- hqx2/3/4 sprite upscaling

Supports game WADs:
- Doom Alpha
- Doom Beta
- Doom 1
- Doom 2

Tested on 64-bit Linux with GZDoom 4.8.2

URL: http://185.45.193.197/wadextract-1.0.zip
Please don't forget to check the README.txt inside the zip file
for how to use the tool.

Some real website later when I have time & sleep ...

Work for version 1.2 has started.

These will be at least included:

- Hexen support

- brightmaps support. That's right. You can soon automatically generate brightmaps with wadextract.
It will be a quick & dirty method and of course you will have to check afterwards if the results were good
and maybe do some additional editing.
Still, should be help for us lazy folks.

So far results look quite nice IMHO.

While coding version 1.2 I digged more deeply into Doom default palette and made some observations.

Below is default Doom 8-bit palette with palette indexes and RGB values in hex.

And below, IMHO, more streamlined palette with duplicate colors removed.
