toolmaker Posted April 7, 2006 Share Posted April 7, 2006 I'm currently in the process of orienting myself for a upcoming school project. The project means that we have to develop a small game in a language of our own choice.I quickly thought: This could be my chance to realize one of my dreams: Cough up my own simple RTS game. As a kid, I loved Dune II, and thus, I figured, why not make my own simple clone of it.However, my main problem with it are the data files. I'm a programmer, not an artist. I could code my own PAK file reader for Dune II and use that. However: We only have 10 weeks to develop the game, so I want to focus on gameplay, and not on writing utils to extract the data.My question: Is there a simple tool to extract all the data into a readable format, or is there a very good description of how the datafile is built up? I have no use for existing code, as I want to develop my game in C#.Thanks,Toolmaker Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
