Heart of Darkness PAF decoder needing compiling.

Simple enough. I found this thing after an extensive search for information on HoD's "hod.paf" file. If someone can quickly compile this for Windows 7 64-bit I think I'll be able to get my next project off the ground.

Found no info about the version it is for but maybe you can just scrap the data before the header signature.

Scrap dont help - extracts 4095 empty png files and one wav file, which is also extract wrong, I think, because the beginning is normal, but when not.

Is anyone still reading this? PAF Decoder doesn't work. Here's what I did. Found a libpng3.dll, put it in the same folder, dnd'd hod.paf on paf_decoder.exe. I actually tried with 3 different versions of the game: English 1.0, English 1.4, French 1.4. The result is always the same:

Code: Select all

Unable to read .PAF file header
Can someone, please, come up with a QuickBMS script or something?
