Re: Editing zone owner

Actually, two bytecounts have been changed (automatically by RevEngEd 2). Also bytes @38542 have been changed, from 12362 to 30168. Actors.bin has a recursive structure. You have a block, which is "ID [2 bytes] - length [4 bytes] - *data [length-6 bytes] ". *data could be two things - a list blocks ...

Re: Editing zone owner

You have wrong texture index in map.4ds objects. First of all, look at this log (right-click, save and open with an editor to see line numbers): map.4ds.txt In the first part you can see the textures: - number 5 (line 29) is X_BLUE.TGA, i.e. the blue transparent color - number 6 (line 36) is X_FLGAL...

@betteryouthanme

To reply to you, I've started a new topic:
index.php/topic,2134.0.html

It would be off topic here ;)

Editing zone owner

Are you sure? I just compared both zone definitions & model files. The only difference is the name zone1 / zone2.. So probably you meant scene2.bin? However i've uploaded both. Ehm, in actors.bin I can't find the zone2 object (both specification and definition). Here's a screenshot of what RevEngEd...

Re: 4ds files hacked

Uh, sorry. The info about the owner of a particular zone is inside "actors.bin". I need that file.

Re: 4ds files hacked

Hi.

RevEngEd is able to handle only occupation missions, not co-op. So, about checkpoints, I'm afraid I must say that no: RevEngEd can't handle CP.

About the area of the respawn, instead, it could make something. Send me the map.4ds and tell me exactly what you want, so I'll have a look at it.

Re: 4ds files hacked

In Africa3 there is something odd with the fountain. Probably just an alpha channel not properly set. ;)

Re: New way Editor!

New feature implemented. When loading an "actors.bin" file, now the editor checks for some byte counts integrity. In fact, to manually modify files (using an hex editor) can introduce errors that H&D2 apparently can handle. For istance, adding a "definition block" at end of file usually works, despi...

Re: 4ds files hacked

To check, you should also retrieve the textures (.BMP) used by the locomotive, and compare them using a graphic software. You'll know immediately if they are different in brightness.

Re: 4ds files hacked

Based on what I know (which could be wrong) H&D2 has no realtime calculated shadows. Instead, shadows are "painted" directly on textures used (think about the palm shadow below the tiger tank). So, probably the authors had in mind a certain light direction, when they made the Station map. And they r...

Re: New way Editor!

Works adavance. Some more screenshots.. This is the main interface. In the big area in center will be displayed the map. On the right there are some icons (temporary images!) to activate several layers (respawns, actors, zones, number of flags, etc.) [img width=797 height=600]http://malgolan.altervi...

Re: 4ds files hacked

@finnlayer

I'm sorry, I didn't understand what you tried to say. If it was a help for me, I thank you, but I resolved, as I stated in my "edit" quote.

If it was a request for help, try so say it in some other way :)

Re: 4ds files hacked

Yesterday I tried to manually modify the map.4ds of Normandy 2B occupation. I've changed the short indicating the number of objects, from 23 to 27. Then I've duplicated the objects zone5, allied5, axis5 and zone_disabled5 and appended the bytes at end of file. I've renamed them to zone6, allied6, ax...
