your programs are so good
but please there is important question in my mind and hope u answer it

How could you get the format of the TR files?*.Wad and *.trx?

as I know(Iam programmer)that the only person who knows the format of a certain file is the person who creates it

so the main format of the WAD and trx files are only with Core Design and it did not release them on the net
so how did you know them?

Please answer


Thank You

You can download the source codes of TrViewer so maybe they will be in there

First of all, you better should have used pm (eidos does not like questions directly to a user).

Anyway, I did not find these out myself, I only helped a bit. It was on a good old day in the winter of 2000-2001 in the good old JHN forum (still miss it!). I don't know who, but someone found out the texture information from the wad files and posted it. The wad format was not very hard cause it was almost like the tr4 one.

About the tr level format, it's fully explained in a document called 'TRosettaStone'. I have no idea how this is made.
