Reskinning and Image Modding

Postby theTrav » Thu Mar 18, 2010 10:30 am

Ok, so a couple of people have asked me to help them out in getting the images out of the .res files.

1 - Download haven-res.jar http://www.havenandhearth.com/java/haven-res.jar
2 - Download the haven res tool http://haven-client.googlecode.com/files/havenResUtil_v5.jar

= Steps for Extracting Images =
3 - Unzip the haven-res.jar (use 7zip) to the same folder your exporter util is (after exporting you should have a folder called res)
4 - Execute the exporter util. Some OSes will let you just double click it, others will need you to run java -jar exportHavenRes_allplatforms.jar
5 - Select "extract" and hit ok

= OPTIONAL BUT HIGHLY RECOMMENDED =
6 - Create a new folder structure that matches the new one that has been created under ./out call it ./mod, you should not have ./out ./res and ./mod that all look identical in terms of folder structure but have slightly different contents.
7 - If you want to edit a png, copy it to the new folder structure, edit and save it there
8 - when you are ready to encode your changes copy the contents of the ./mod folder on top of the ./out folder

= Steps for Encoding Images =
9 - Execute the eporter util (see step 4)
10 - select "encode" and hit ok

Your changes should now be encoded int the ./res folder. You can use an archiving program (like 7zip) to replace the ./res folder in the haven-res.jar file or create your own jar file if you're savvy I don't care.

This version of the res tool has been almost completely untested. I made sure it executes, but have no idea whether the .res files it produces are valid or not yet.
WARNING: I bear no liability for the behavior of this software. It may kill your wife, rape your dog and subscribe you to mailing lists for horrible myspace goth poetry anthologies. Use at your own risk. Src available from http://haven-client.googlecode.com/files/havenrestool_v5_src.zip I should apologize for how hideous it is, but I'm not going to.

It needs res folder in same place as this jar file. and will decode all resources found into out/res/ folder. Encoding occurs in reverse - takes from out/res/ and encodes to res/ folder.

...but why, when all graphics are already perfect? ;)

Because flax and wheat still suck major dicks on not so super pcs. Because it is helpful to be able to look behind cabins, walls, trees and whatnots. Because it also can be funny to have a non dicked cave :x

So we can steal your proprietary graphics and use them in our own projects of course!

It should create a folder called out and dump a TON of png's into various sub-folders.


I have not made a way to put it back into haven .res format yet, gimme a day or two for that.

EDIT version 3- outputs to correct folders now

thanks a lot man
