PostSubject: A Question About The Monsters   Sat Jan 02, 2010 8:32 pm

Hello there. I was wondering one thing about the sprites of the monsters which were 3D in their original games. How did you made frames of 3D monsters without messing them? Specially Eidolon, he got lots of 3D frames and haves a perfect look.

Also, I have another question. What the hell is the game "M&M"? You know, from where the Luch monsters, the Fallen Angel, Misanthrope, etc... monsters came from? I can't find any info about that game...

Thank you.

I believe the Eidolon sprites came from Earthbound, not so much directly from Hexen 2. For other monsters, it's a long, tedious process extracting them. As for M&M, that stands for Might & Magic. There's a lot of games in that series.

I know they originally came from Hexen 2, but the person who made Earthbound extracted those sprites, and I'm guessing it was easier to get them from there than from Hexen 2.

Oh... Now I got it. Also, I checked the game, I think the graphics are from Might & Magic 8, was a large check to find the exact game. I'm playing the game right now and... Wow. This game is just... Confusing. But has a big amount of source to the game.

Not really. I ripped myself all monsters from hexen 2, including eidolon
Although, the one in EBD looks better, I must admit

And the process, well, is a bit tedious. Frame by frame taking shots of the 3d model, offset them and rename them... oh well... But that reminds me there is something I wanted to add in aeod... Razz

Interesting way to make it. But did you recolored all frames to make Moloch? '-'

No, that's just decorate and it's magic. With it (DECORATE lump) you can recolor all sprites on an actor, depending on the color range you select. Ichor was the one who did this in decorate (so all the moloch behaviour)

Interesting. Now, I shall try to make my own Eidolon.

Good luck on that. Have a nice dive into the DECORATE help on the wiki

I have some experience with DECORATE. I just have to discover how to define the "images". I never got that, how is the name of a sprite in only 4 letters?
