Re: XeNTaX attacked by virus

I just noticed the problem with the wiki, I hope it'll be solved with no big data loss. Also looking forward for the sonofabitch who hacked the wiki to die, as I was in need of consulting some GRAF's. He made me lose much time reverse engineering already done work. Anyway, keep it going, try to igno...

Re: I.M.Meen (1995 PC/DOS) CMP format

Have taken a look over that. I got the same "fucked up" image as you show up, so It may take some time to figure the correcto order of the palette. Don't promise anything. I'll be away some time now I think (exams business) but any free time one of my tasks will be finding this out. I hope yo keep t...

Re: I.M.Meen (1995 PC/DOS) CMP format

That sounds fantastic :wink:

Sorry again, some unplanned business took me 4 hours and so I'll try to see that tomorrow if there isn't any new trouble (one can never be completely on holidays!)

That's it, see you soon!

Re: I.M.Meen (1995 PC/DOS) CMP format

Hey! Back here and glad to see these progress. As that seems to be the palette and having now two days off (monday and tuesday) I'll try to figure out how is the palette used by the CMP's. Can't promise anything, but I'll try my best. There was also some unknown data at the end of each CMP that can ...

Re: I.M.Meen (1995 PC/DOS) CMP format

Yeah, pretty easy from there I think you'll find such a tool even without having to code it yourself. (In such case we could make it just in a couple of hours)

Once the palette is found just tell me to update the tools, so the pixel coulours are output correctly.

Keep it up!

Re: I.M.Meen (1995 PC/DOS) CMP format

Great :keke:

So if you already find some colour matches, finding where the palette start it's straightforward, remember they are usually 256 bit * 3 = 768 bytes.

I'll take a look to this this weekend, I think I'll have some time.

Just trying to determine which file contains it.

Cheers!

Re: [REQ]PC game the black of ghost .pak file.

Great job! Yeah I've just noticed the 5BAB pattern in there. Althought, hyperripper wasn't able to find any uncompressed file, maybe because it doesn't search dds etc Now, what's that image supposed to be, dongdong? :D (today it's a bad day, all the requests were about absurd formats) I guessed that...

Re: [REQ]PC game the black of ghost .pak file.

Didn't recognise anything neither at beginning or end of the file (such as file size, file number, etc fields) However there are some uncoded strings at the beggining which may reveal some info for someone. As I said, it's a matter of time, you can make this almost imposible to figure out but then i...

This is my company new product for pc game. I'm not the expert in english over here but I think that you were meaning: "This is my company's new product for pc gamers" Aside from that, what is the purpose of the topic? Just by curiosity. Maybe knowing if it's going to be "hacked" soon? :D I wouldn'...

Great to see the forums up and running in such short space of time! For a moment I thought someone exploited the forum software and that would be really bad.

Re: I.M.Meen (1995 PC/DOS) CMP format

That would be a good point to start. Try to find strings like "PAL" "colour" etc. We may have luck with that, because as palettes don't have any special signature searching for it as binary would be difficult. Another idea is to take one of the colours we already had and search for it with an hex ed...
