Before posting your Resource, please make sure you can answer YES to any of the following questions:
  • Is the resource ENTIRELY my own work?
  • If no to the previous one, do I have permission from the original author?
  • If no to the previous one, did I put a reasonable amount of work into the resource myself, such that the changes are noticeably different from the source that I could take credit for them?
If you answered no to all three, maybe you should consider taking your stuff somewhere other than the Resources forum.

Consult the Resource/Request Posting Guidelines for more information.

Please don't put requests here! They have their own forum --> here. Thank you!

There doesn't seem to be too many files. Perhaps I only have the shareware version... or perhaps it was just a small game. I don't really know much about it to be honest.

Bumping this thread to ask if anyone still has the Westworld 2000 resource file. Apparently I lost it at some point...

Edit:
In fact, I've lost most of my resources from the first post! I'm mostly looking for Westworld and In Pursuit of Greed, however.

Edit 2:
Turns out I still have the Westworld resources after all! Still missing IPOG. Really need to update the first post at some point :p

A new resource has been posted to the first page! This time it's Desktop Toys, a small collection of desktop toys for Win 3.1 and up. This was recently requested to me, so I thought why not! :)

Included in this resource are screenshot rips of the weapons and other first person sprites, as well as sounds. I couldn't crack the resource files as it seems they are compressed, but I included the raw data for those that want to poke around.

I need some help cracking data files for a game! The game in question is The Abyss: Incident at Europa. A cursory look at the game's data files has revealed the following:
Spoiler: Audio
Spoiler: Video
I've had luck extracting the sounds, which I'll upload soon, but I need help extracting the textures and sprites. I've uploaded a zip that contains the game's major file types for those that want to poke at them. Hopefully you'll have more luck than me!

I just looked up about the animated sprites file. I see what's going on. The sprites are really there, but it suffer the same problem I had when I attempted ripping the sprites from Killing Time PC. The sprite was supposed to show the two headed dog. Exactly, when I opened the .msv file with the right setup, I get the same result here. Each stuffs between the bright green lines are the sprites but messed up.

I once asked why it was happening in this thread here.

Zero X. Diamond replied that few posts after:
Zero X. Diamond wrote:From what I'm seeing there, the sprites are stored without their transparency. I'm assuming they have some sort of header that tells the engine where to display transparent space in-engine. Lots of games do this as a space-saving measure. The only sure-fire way to get them (that I know of, anyways) is to crack the format they're stored in and extract and convert them.

Man that's so bizarre, everything else is stored uncompressed, so there must be some reason they went this route.

I did some digging, and turned up the former coder's website here (click on the broken image top right). According to this, they used Fastgraph technology, and one of the listed products in their catalog is some kind of resource manager for images, sounds and other data. Sadly I don't have $1000 to invest in outdated software that might not even work, but maybe there are other games that use this tech that have been cracked. :p

Cracked open the msv files in a hex editor, and this is the first thing I saw. It seems they do contain the animated sprites! Now if only I could figure out how to read the jumbled mess that the rest of the file is. :p
