Title: Maldita Castilla
Post by: tryphon on January 31, 2016, 06:47:17 pm
I wanted to rip sprites from the free indie game Maldita Castilla (http://www.locomalito.com/maldita_castilla.php), by locomalito (a very good clone of Ghouls'n Ghosts). i didn't find a good way to do it :

The game ressources are probably in a file named data.win (around 48 Mb, maybe I can post it since the game is free, but you can dl it from the link above). I opened it with an hex editor, it's an archive, some tags can be found. Among them one is SPRT (but also FORM, BB8, OPTNX, EXTN, SOND, AGRP,...).  I opened it with tile molester, found some gfx but not in the SPRT area (and the one I found are not sprites).

I tried to capture them with CamStudio Recorder but can't achieve 60 fps with my PC which cause some frames to be very difficult to capture.

Some ideas ? Either on the .win format (is it known ?) or on a way to capture ?

"data.win" is the usual archive name used by Game Maker (Studio?) games.

There's a QuickBMS script for them available here: http://aluigi.org/papers/bms/yoyogames.bms

Perfect answer  :o

Thanks a lot, not only did it work perfectly, but also you made me know a software that is quite appealing :)
