Re: Warcraft II sprite creation process

Hallfiry told me that, according to his studies, Blizzard had used software by Autodesk back then, which may or may not have involved graphics processing tools that were used to create sprites for Warcraft II . (I'm sorry I have to relate anything by Hallfiry , it's just that for some reason he can...

Re: Warcraft II sprite creation process

Not yet. The main problem is, I can't remember where I read about the filter in the first place. They certainly must have used something to post-process the sprites in any case. Yes, that's true. But it would be interesting to learn that such a process can be automated rather than be done by hand. ...

Re: Warcraft II sprite creation process

It is well known that the sprites in Warcraft II are pre-rendered, created from 3D models, as was typical for the time. However, their distinct feature is a "cartoon", hand-drawn look which suggests some kind of processing after the models were converted to sprites. I remember reading som...

Re: Stratagus Menu UI for Chochlik

Hey Andrettin, thanks for your response. I'm looking into Flare but I don't know if that's what I'll use. I really like the timing and atmosphere used in the classic game, which would be hard to replicate in another engine. The hard part for me is I don't have enough knowledge to do what I'm lookin...

Re: Stratagus Menu UI for Chochlik

Hey qualakon, I find your dedication to Diablo 1 amazing :) To me it is one of the best RPGs of all time, and I loved playing it back in the day. Unfortunately, I don't think much can be done without the source code for those engines. If you want to use the Stratagus engine to do a Diablo 1 remake, ...
