Re: Treasure Cove String Table

Not much. I'll try to get a list ready of the stuff that I did find unusual.

Re: Treasure Cove String Table

I find that it is taking a long time. Is there anything that we can do to speed up the process?

Re: Treasure Cove String Table

Roger that. I also use PSPad Editor to do a search for Bitmap Signatures, as well.

Re: Treasure Cove String Table

I think there's going to be a lot of investigation as to which DMP file is the correct one. Is there something that can help me rapidly narrow down which file may be the right one?

Re: Treasure Cove String Table

Hi. It's been a while. Sorry to have taken so long to get back to you. So, I ran the script last night, and, wow, oh wow. That's a lot of files to examine. But, I'll try to do what I can. One thing I noticed is that there is a LOT of .SSND files, and I highly doubt that all those files represent a s...

That is so cool. How do you change the palette?

Re: Treasure Cove String Table

Thanks! Problem is, it spits out a lot of DAT files.

Re: Treasure Cove String Table

I will try out the script, shortly. Thanks for letting me know how to run it. When I try out the script, I will try to read the OTHR files. I get the feeling that they are compressed, as I think it would make the game much larger than needed.

Re: Treasure Cove String Table

There’s a strong chance that the sprites are in the BNDL files. I did a rapid Google Search, and although there’s nothing that I can find in regards to BNDL files in those days, the results suggest that they are bundle files. Sounds like another highly obvious place to search. I think that Version 1...

Re: Treasure Cove String Table

Cool stuff! So far, such a great start! I want to try out your Python Script, but, I need to know how to operate it. Like, does it run straight from CMD, or does it require to be run through a Python Commandline?

Re: Treasure Cove String Table

Hm. That's probable. However, in Versions 1 and 2, the only DAT file is users.dat , and there's slight differences. For example, the screenshot you uploaded shows me that the version you looked at is the original one (the dead giveaway is the DAT files, and the TCV.BAT file in the screenshot). I not...

Treasure Cove String Table

Hi. I have tried to look into where the sprites are stored for Treasure Cove (Which is a DOS game, though, the computer seems to run it just fine on a Windows 7 Virtual Machine), and, at the moment, I have some leads. However, I decided to extract the Strings Table to see if there's anything interes...
