Good work on your modding Tinman. Your guides have been very helpful indeed.
I have a suggestion, and I realise it's a lot of work, but if you are essentially creating a "settings" mod, you could produce a program that allows people to set their own
values. I was thinking something with a simple GUI interface where people could select values (for example: the corpse on screen count). The program could also incorporate an installer, which would kick in after selecting your game variables. People like simplicity, and they like to set their own game settings. Since Raven have locked everything down, this program could be a real winner.
I'm a texture kind of guy and was hoping to do a quick skin pack, however I've kinda of given up until somebody comes up with a SPK/MPK packer/repacker. Wolf2 calls detail textures from StreamPacks, and unless somebody comes up with a funky way of getting around this or creating a packer, I can't proceed. I did try the compileStreamPack command, which is implimented, but only seems to want to convert .asl files into .spk's. What the heck is an .asl ?
Final thought: I can't see why Raven bothered to lock down the assets. Well... I can understand them wanting to protect content, but surely they must have realised the SPK/MPK packing method would be cracked in a few days (which it was). All it has done is impede modding, and protect nothing.
