Widescreen modding?

Yeah, documentation is also pretty poor and hard to find too.

There is an archive listing all sprites here though: http://www.r-t-c-m.com/knowledge-base/d ... s-editart/

Edit: Oh just come on... ninja'd 4 times already?

There are some Build tools available for messing with the ART files, a more recent tool that I could find being this: http://swforum05.proboards.com/thread/7 ... -editor-v1

But one problem: It requires Java to run... which isn't surprising at all since m210 designed it...

Build files are an open format - one of the things Ken did well was documenting how the formats work. The desolation of tools is merely just a lack of desire to create them, and generally the ones that came with the various Build games were deemed sufficient enough.

PNG will do. Which reminds me: I really should add grAb handling when PNGs get used for sprites later.

Do you have the status bar as PNG? The JPG artifacts in this one are too visible, unfortunately.

"Holy pile of dynamite Batman" that sprite work knocked me off the chair, especially the sword which blows Redux's take on it out of the water - for starters, Redux's widescreen sword is actually visibly curved past the point where the original sprite stops, this one has no such issue I see.

This is absolutely phenomenal work, can't wait for those, and the Riot Gun aka Shotgun if you have the time. This is SO GOOD.

And yes, the compass in SW's status bar is dynamic, it changes depending on where you're facing.

Graf, just so I understand - why did you ask for the status bar? Were you by any chance thinking of packaging these with the engine?

Yes, I haven't done so because the status bar needs some work on the code. It's drawn with an upper left origin which doesn't work with a wider version.

Alright, noted. I was just curious if there was a deadline for any of this stuff. I am currently doing some art for other people, but I will surely get back to these ASAP as I personally want to play Raze without cut-off graphics myself. :P

There's still the shuriken, other frames of the sword, and the riot gun left to do. And some minor adjustments to the status bar I'd like to edit in.

PLease keep in mind, to add the weapon sprites I also need the offsets I need to put in, otherwise they won't work.

No problem, I will have the exact offset numbers figured out for you when the assets are ready.

Wait a moment, the shuriken?

But what is wrong with it? Never spotted anything myself.
