    edit a gfx ?

    Ajo,

    I want to edit some gfx's used by a game.
    Problem > i can't find a prog which can do that...Is it possible?


    (just want to erase some nag's (that's easier than removing the call to the nag)

    Surched on the web but only i got some prog's to make gfx's, but i can't load mine in that prog's...

    Thanks,

    SpeKK.

    well, i guess there is no such program, at least not a program made to 'edit game gfx'.

    you need to locate the gfx (in resource section, seperate file or (custom) pak file).

    and then paint will do the job

    the first 2 options (res. section or file) are easy to modify. if the file resides in a pak file, try to find some unpacker, and if it is in an unknown format, reverse the structure of it, write an unpacker, modify the gfx, write a packer, and voila.
    I promise that I have read the FAQ and tried to use the Search to answer my question.

    erhhh... imho it is naturual for a reverser to check the header with hiew to identify the filetype?

    SpeKKeL:

    Time for me to harp on my favorite subject: "searching."

    A few moments with Mr. Google netted many .gfx viewers and editors. I believe that the most expensive would be Photoshop but if you search for ".gfx viewers" and ".gfx editors" you will find many. Here are two reference sites which have sever of each, most of them are "free," no reversing required.

    nice...?!

    Okee,

    Jmi thanks for the "well done"surch......

    Your first url points to a zx-spectrum site.....

    Your second ........I really can't find an editor which can load a .gfx file and edit it, can you ??

    Maybe i'am to early with my request and didn't do a good surch but isn,t .gfx an extension like bmp or are i missing something?
    Sorry if i am wrong,

    Here you will find a list of "All" file extensions for the letter "G":

    http://www.filext.com/alphalist.php?extstart=^G

    And here you will find a listing of all those companies that are apparently using the ".gfx" extension.

    File Extension Details for .GFX:
    http://www.filext.com/detaillist.php?extdetail=GFX

    I note one of them is for a a program called "The Games Factory Extension" which apparently is used for making games. It has a trial download. It's also used by WarCraft II Image Files. There are other's there that might do the job, but why do I have to do ALL the work??

    oohhh...

    Well,

    Thanks again, but did you really thought i didn't surch that links before posting here?
    I really appreciate(h'mm did i spell that correct) your "hard"work but looking
    to the replies, none of the reversers ever editted a gfx...
    I only wondered if it could be done and in what way cause i could't find it my
    self..

    It looks like there is no such prog. I installed a dozen of game makers, image editors end so on but none of them could do the job.

    SpeKK.

    It's probably because it's a proprietary format like it happens very often with games. You've got to find out the format by yourself with trial and error.
