Re: tree.klz think tank

FOURTH PART After the third part, there is another serie of 32-bytes structures, slightly different from the previous one (Now I'm inspecting Normandy 2 mp zone): [byte]      b1 [byte]      b2 [byte]      b3 [byte]      b4 [short]     O > increasing number, highest value is up to number of objects ...

Re: tree.klz think tank

THIRD PART As preannunced by HdMaster, it is a serie of 32-bytes-long structures. I copy it from his post (slightly modified), labeling the values for future use: [byte]      b1 [byte]      b2 [byte]      b3 [byte]      b4 [short]     C1 [short]     O1 > increasing number, highest value is identica...

Re: tree.klz think tank

I've tried some experiments. First Moving a solid object will make non-solid both where the object now is (new position), and where the object once were (old position). This is my theory: tree.klz tells the game which objects to test for collision, regarding my position in game. For example, if I am...

Re: tree.klz think tank

Hi Hdmaster! Welcome back! Always a pleasure hearing from you :) I had no time to write all I discovered, before. I'll add the other informations as soon as possible. Ok, let's say there are at least 2 parts, maybe more. I've found out also where max / min values are stored, and a sort of 3-d grid w...

Re: tree.klz think tank

THE SECOND PART The second part begins with 4 floats, which are the map boundaries. I'll call them - min X - min Z - max X - max Z It seems there is no hint to Y values (height). Here, "min X" float is highlighted (~-23.013 for Alps 2): http://malgolan.altervista.org/forumImages/tree/min%20X.jpg "A...

Re: tree.klz think tank

THE FIRST PART I think I've hacked completely the first part. Here is an excel that summarize it: http://malgolan.altervista.org/forumImages/tree/first part.xls (the part above the light blue line). Here a detail (with examples taken by Alps 2): First 8 bytes is an header (which is always the same,...

tree.klz think tank

Hi everyone. I've started looking at tree.klz to understand how collisions works. It seems a long and difficoult way, though. So I'll post every discovery I make here.. Maybe someone else will have ideas. First of all, I advice to read how collision trees usually works: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

Re: New way Editor!

When a definition is missing its specification (a specification with the same label), it's pointed out with a red exclamation mark: http://malgolan.altervista.org/forumImages/rev2tree5.jpg Do you think it's sufficient? Would you like also a pop-up on loading the file, or would it be too invasive? Or...

Re: New way Editor!

Hi!
I've added "delete" and "duplicate" functionalities to my DC-ED-like editor.
If someone would you like to do some beta testing, please contact me!

Re: Mapdownloader

Well, maybe is not the best solution you can imagine, but it's still better than manually download and save maps.

And if a stand-alone client costs 10 units of programmation, while an autopatching system costs 100 units,
maybe the stand-alone solution could be a good starting point.

Re: New way Editor!

I've never tried such a thing  :eek:
Maybe hdmaster knows more than me.
If you can give me an example (a mission where this is achieved)
I could try to reverse engineer
and replicate it....

Re: Mapdownloader

Even without modifing the HD2 exe, I was thinking about an indipendent client (a software by itself) which connects to a certain IP (the server IP), then look inside a shared folder with a particular name, and then synchronize the actual hidden directory with what is found inside that server directo...

Re: Mapdownloader

Yes, a known problem. Also, a "synch over lan" would be helpful. Every time I make a new mission, all the people at the lan party have to copy it into the right folder. And not all of them are good at this, so it takes a lot of time! A client which connect to the server and synchronize it's own pc w...

Re: New way Editor!

Thank you! :) Help is always appreciated! I'll fix 0x0032 (just a label rename is needed). I read as raw data all those blocks that are not worthing to modify (or I did not understand). For example, the 0x24AE of ladder definitions is always the same (I suppose) and there is no need to change or und...
