ATAMAH --> I don't even know what kind of non packed version you are talking about. I don't know what to to with files I downloaded. Please do the mod version if you can... or at least ask someone to do it Smile

Last time I used a mod version of your work made by Chris Gi... it worked perfectly! Can you ask him for help?

No, this time it's different. The former version used jpg as texture format, now it uses tga. I already tried to pack (I wanted to know how it looks) but it didn't change anything. TGA format is only used if there are no jpg version of the textures. But X2 uses jpg, which get read instead of the tga from ATAMAH.
Sorry, I don't have the time to convert the textures from TGA to JPG.

Yes, what do we do with the files in the archive? There's no tex/true
directory in the x2 directory. If I need to unpack something of the
game, how do I do that?

Improved graphics would be awesome Smile

Ok, I downloaded
http://rapidshare.com/files/164271852/ATAMAH.zip.html. This archive
contains 05.dat and 05.cat. I put those into my x2 directory and
started the game. The HUD looks messed up, but otherwise, it's a great
improvement.

That's awesome work, ATAMAH, thanks a lot! They might as well release
a patch containing this upgrade!

Unpacking requires you to download the modders kit from Egosoft

Follow directions to the link:

Egosoft -> Downloads -> X2 - The Threat -> Bonus Materials

Go to the bottom and click on: X≤: The Threat Modder Kit (Rev. 1.4) 1.46 MB


You don't have any idea how long it took me to finally find this kit.

Unpacking works as follows: (it has a readme that tells you basically what I'm writing, but my instructions are 100% self-done a day ago.)

1. Unzip Modder Kit zip.

2. MOVE program "x2tool" to your BASE X2 installation folder (the same folder as the executable X2.exe (Default: C:\program files\Enlight\X2 - The Threat\ )

3. Press Window Key + R to open "run" (or start->run)

4. Type: "cmd" without the quotes to get to your command prompt (Vista is similar, but not the same; looking for "command" should be enough)

5. Navigate to the X2 directory with x2tool
Code:


Command:  cd
Use: changing directory
Example: "cd c:\program files\enlight\X2 - the threat\"

Alternative use: to get out of the current directory 1 level: cd..  (with the 2 periods)

Alternative use 2: cd\  (with the backslash you get to your base drive listing like from c:\program files\x2 - the threat\ to c:\)



6. Run at command line with the following: x2tool -extract-dat <#>
Code:
Example: x2tool -extract-dat 01


7. Rename or move your tex/true folder. Move this Big mod's true folder to where tex/true was.

8. You're done

Notes on x2tool use:

1. # = number of dat file.
2. BEGIN with 01 and increment. (01 contains oldest files, and 02,03,04,05 overwrite some of them)
3. Do not put ".dat" because 01 is all it recognizes (it looks for <#> + .cat for the cat file so: "01.dat" yields "01.dat.cat," which it won't find).




Some helpful tags for those that are searching:
How to unpack, unpacking, packed, pack, unpacked, dat, cat, tex/true, textures as jpegs, tga, jpeg

Thanks for the good instructions!

Mmm... So what's stopping someone from creating a Zip or Rar file that contains the data created through this method, to bypass the command line business? Not that it's a problem; I'm thinking in user-friendliness terms.

Edit: Ah, I see. It would still read from the packaged files, right? Pity. You could just rename the packaged files and download the entire game, but that would be illegal...

Edit: Whoooaaaa! That's incredible! Mods, sticky this or add it the the Mods thread! Egosoft, make it official!

Every so often someone does something incredible with an old game like this. Today you are that someone. Hold your head high and be proud, as you have made an old trader (and many many others) very happy indeed.

Edit (last one, I promise). There are plenty of Windows emulators for Linux, so that would probably be your best bet, username-1. A workalble alternative could be to juggle files between a Windows machine and your Linux box, although this involves a fair bit of hassle. A linux version was probably never released, so unless you want to decompile the app and totally rewrite it get Wine or something.

As a side note, would it be possible for you to isolate the specifically Russian-language images for us Atamah? Not all of us are versed in your tongue, so a specific Russian-only graphic set for briefings (or better yet, multilingual support) would be a great asset. I'll be more than happy to provide you with English briefing images for example, and (through Steam) can easily acquire the other language sets. Just tell me which files to look out for.

I just found this and I'm at a bit of a loss on how to install it. I've read the readme files but I don't see the folders specified. I'm on Mac OS X, any ideas?

Could somebody please post screens here?
The link of username-1 is malfunctioning.

I'm now downloading it (still 56 minutes left, MEGAUPLOAD only allows a speed of 37 kbits). Evil or Very Mad
Am I right and in the catalouge are only a few .bods and .bobs? Or did you change more than these files?

The screenshots link doesn't work; can you possibly redo the link or something?

Whoa. The texture resolutions are certainly better. The inside of the factory I was docked at was so bright and technicolor it burned my eyes, though. Very Happy
