How to extract resources from DAT files of POP1

Post by Nico » February 2nd, 2009, 3:41 am

Hi!

I'd like to know how to extract some resources from the DAT files of Prince of Persia 1.
Does anyone have any simple example on how to do this?

I've been browsing the Prince Resources and FreePrince code to find out how they do it but the functions are not very well documented and I get lost...

Can anyone give me some guides to do this? like what functions do I have to use or what are the steps to extract the resources?

Thanks!

Hi, yes I know how to do that, but I'd like to know how it works. I want to know the functions used to extract the resources.

you can extract sounds in .mid or even .bmp's with the game pictures, edit them and import them back changing the games graphics!!
