I wish I had the technical talent to make mods. I am glad to see the section come up and I look forward to seeing what others are modding.

Any chance you could have the game recognise animaed GIF's as well as the DDS files for the avatar? It'd be like having a fully 3D animated character, but keeping with the low requirements and size idea.

tricky. you'd need a huge gif for animation. I *could* have gone down the 3D engine route, but it would take away so much effort frm coding the gameplay, plus raise the games system requirements too high for my liking.

Modding Guide?

Postby upvar() » Wed Nov 22, 2006 10:35 am

Has a comprehensive guide been written yet on the values inside the csv files? I'd love to write one once I've figured out what they all do. :D

Help with .csv editing <-a neat solution

Postby dari » Sun Jan 07, 2007 12:13 am

--snip--
You can use CSVed,freeware editor made for .csv files only.
It has many interesting features that make editing easier.

Below is the download link:

a nice csv-editor that DreamTwister found - and yes it makes saving those kudos csv files much easier than openoffice (just hit save button nothing to worry about it works YAY)

I'm not sure if this has been asked anywhere x_x but is there any way to get these modded avatars in the mac version~? I've tried installing them both by putting the files in the avatar folder and by using the in-game update things, but when I go to select the characters, they come up as empty space.~ :(

the mac version uses a different format for the avatars, I think it might be png (can't remember off hand), so the files need to be converted, which I think can be done in photoshop, but the company that did the mac port originally converted the default ones

Can you verify that 'png' is the avatar format?
Can you specify which avatars you need converted?

If you answered yes to both of these questions, please specify below and I can prob'ly convert some files for you.. unless you've already come up with some other solution.
Rock on!

they are PNG files, apparently DDS Converter 2.1 does the job perfectly, so I'm told.

yes, DDS Converter is what I was thinking. This was the first time I've used it and yes, 'perfectly' is an understatement! Not only does it convert DDS > PNG but it does so very quickly. (converted the contents of the /avatars/backgrounds folder, containing 19 DDS files totaling 4.75 MB, in less than 7 seconds)

I don't know what you need so I just did all the images (from 'avatars', 'avatars/backgrounds', 'female_portraits' and 'male_portraits') compressed the resulting PNGs, zipped it and uploaded it here (6342KB).

[edit]actually, I think there're some I missed.. they are here (2662KB)[/edit]

If there's something else let me know.
Rock on!
