hi

in case the link doesn't work I send you the sprite

it seen some sprite are a bit lager cause it was a try for changing the all sprite size to 150% to get better sprite detail

if you want to use it for custom campaign with the xlsots.txt file ( see the link )

http://forum.dark-omen.org/2d-sprites/adding-more-sprites-to-dark-omen-t1214.15.html

for multiplayer I think you have to overwrite a sprite with the same index ( ex:0x007e is the index for gruinf.spr and can work for 0x007ecorsaire.spr)

0000 = VOIDTYPE/XST_ZNewMisc5/XST_ZNewMisc6/XST_LastSprite
000e = BtlSprit/flags
001c = missiles
002a = mi
0038 = SPL_ITEM
0046 = SPL_BRI
0054 = SPL_BRI
0062 = SPL_BRI
0070 = SPL_DARK
007e = GRUINF/GRUXBW/OUTINF/IMPGRT/ARTILL/NGOB/NGARCH/ORCBOY/BIGUNS/MUMMY/SKELWR/WIGHT/BANSWD
008c = GRAILK/KREALM/BERNHD/GRUCAV/CARLSS/OUTPIST
009a = CANNON/MORTAR
00a8 = BRIGHT
00b6 = ICEMAG
00c4 = NGSHAM
00d2 = ORCSHM
00e0 = NECRO
00ee = CARST
00fc = IMPHAL/GLADE
010a = DWARF/GHOUL
0118 = PEASMN/PEASBY/PEASWM
0126 = ZOMBIE
0134 = ELFARC/ARRERB
0142 = BOAR
0150 = CHARIOT/NAGASH
015e = SKELHS
016c = SPIDER/SCORPN
017a = TROLL/WRAITH
0188 = FLAGEL
0196 = OGRE/TREEMN
01a4 = STMTNK
01b2 = FANATIC
01c0 = RAGNAR
01ce = DREAD
01dc = SKELCV/UNKNIG
01ea = BOLT
01f8 = ROCKLB
0206 = SSKULL
0214 = DUMMY
0222 = IMPBOW/SKELBW/BANARC
0230 = VAMP
023e = Unused sprites (ST_*)

so 0x007ecorsaire.spr + 0x007edarklancer.spr +0x007efurieoldant.spr can overwrite all this sprite ( GRUINF/GRUXBW/OUTINF/IMPGRT/ARTILL/NGOB/NGARCH/ORCBOY/BIGUNS/MUMMY/SKELWR/WIGHT/BANSWD )

and 0x010awarhydra.spr an overwrite ( 010a = DWARF/GHOUL)

Thanks mate... Olly is working on a new update for the Dark Omen 2 Mod so once that is released over the next few days I'll make some customisations to the Dark Elf army and include some new unit types, maybe see how I go using your sprite files.

If you could both work together on getting these to correct size and even make some more new Dark Elve sprites and thier shields and banners, then I can add it into the Dark Omen 2 mod template xslots etc and combine it into the latest release. We also need to get more SOTHR Skaven and I think Cuthalion has some of them in Wood Elves mod perhaps.

Thanks

Attached 2 sprites.... couldn't send them in a message but here are the 2 remaining sprites for editing.

As I said, I suck at editing sprites these days.

  • Dark Elf Warriors (with spears and no shields)
  • Dark Elf Witch (to be used as a base for harpies)

I'd like to try add shields to the Dark Elf Spearmen and then copy that sprite and change the spears to swords so there are 2 units available, Dark Elf Warriors (with swords) and Dark Elf Warriors (with spears) and both having shields now.

The Dark Elf Witch sprite I've attached could be used as a base for model for the harpies. Just need to lighten up the skin tone, remove armour and add wings.

Let me know if this is something you can do.

These are the units I have already just to repeat for others:
  • Dark Elf Warriors (with spears)
  • Dark Elf Crossbowmen
  • Dark Elf Black Guard
  • Dark Elf Corsairs
  • Dark Elf Witch Elves
  • Dark Elf Har Ganeth Executioners
  • Dark Elf Shades
  • Dark Elf Dark Riders
  • Dark Elf Cold One Knights
  • Dark Elf Sorceress
  • Dark Elf Repeater Bolt Thrower
  • Dark Elf Hydra

I've used a combination of your new sprites + existing sprites from the Dark Omen 2 mod pack so it covers a few units but haven't completed everything yet so will probably do so in the next few days.

I'll add in your custom Banners as well so there are about 11 banners, 1 for each unit type.

I'll also create custom Book Profiles for all the units as above.

hi

I think the spearmen sprite have already shield on some frame specially on walking one ( I also think it will also be difficult to add shield on all frame without redo all the pose model that mean redo all the model )

maybe we can try to use the age of wanders 2 sprites

Sounds a good plan unless they are 30 degree camera angle like Civ2/3, as Dark Omen requires 45 degrees (as we both found out when trying the Civ 3 Warhammer mod ones awhile ago).

We will have to create an updated guide for reusing the Total War mods of Warhammer characters for Dark Omen sprites, as they have Harpies.

Yeh the Dark Elf Warriors don't have shields... they have both hands on the spear.

I used to use the Outlaw Pistolier sprites as Shades however in all sprites I see, they are all riding horses but I swear a while back I found some sprites originally similar to the Outlaw Pistoliers without a horse (mounted).

I can't seem to find it now so unfortunately I'd have to edit all the sprites for Wood Elf Archers, changing the colours over to Black/Purple instead but yeh, I totally suck at editing graphics nowadays. More of a programmers mind hahaha!

Where do we get the sprites for Age of Wonders?

And the harpies look pretty good.

I'm about half way through editing the Wood Elf Archer sprites to look like Dark Elf Shades and it's coming along quite well so far... much better than I thought anyway!

Will keep you posted.

Haha, well 8 or so frames have shields which is a bit weird.

Anyway, I tried editing the WoodElfArchers sprites to change the green colours to black/grey and the gold colours to purple but doesn't look very good. I haven't used MDose much so can't really get it to work to be honest.

Did you want to have a go with that?

  • Copy Wood Elf Archers sprites
  • Change Green colours to Dark Grey, Change Gold trim on cape to Purple
  • Compile new sprite

It's pretty easy I just haven't got enough experience yet so it will take me a while to figure all this out.

In the meantime, I'm going to work on getting those banners into the script so there's 11 banners in total and creating the Book Profiles as required.

Yeh I used the Corsairs already, they look good. The Sea Dragon Cloaks are amazing!

We could use them as a template however I don't think Shades have 2 weapons. I could use that I guess and just change the cape to black maybe.
