KID.DAT page on PoPOT

Post by hellgenocid » July 2nd, 2017, 2:52 pm

Thank you, in http://www.popot.org/ there is no place where submit a KID.DAT?

I see a vdungeon.dat gallery, a vpalace.dat gallery, why not a kid.dat gallery?

Cool, I hope that it will motive other modders to make more KID.DAT modifications.

The game creates the transparency by 'ignoring' one of the colors of the palette.
(The first color in the colormap.)
Usually that color is black, but since the game ignores it, any color can be used.
Apparently, the color aqua (#00fcfc) was used for most of the SNES images.

I moved the posts not specifically about hellgenocid's KID.DAT from here into this new topic.

About this page: http://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?action=KID.DAT
I'm afraid that some of these have the wrong author.
Just because Total Pack had a mod with a certain KID.DAT, it does not mean that it originally was like that.
Remember, you yourself complained about Total Pack messing with the graphics files: viewtopic.php?p=9732#p9732

Now, some corrections.

The prince in black comes from KX - Out of Time.
(BTW, PoPOT's copy of the KX mod uses the wrong palace graphics. I still have the original archive from 2005 if you need it.)

I think all the SNES princes were made by Brain from the PoPUW forum: http://www.popot.org/popuw_forum_archive/1333a.html
(Again, I have quite a few original ZIPs from him.)

My notes say that the PoP2 prince was made by BlackChar. (The info comes from the Total Pack graphics selector, I think.)
The red-clothed prince is by hanswurst, by the same source.
I have a zip with a full list here: viewtopic.php?p=13892#p13892

Hm, I'll take a look at this later.

> I still have the original archive from 2005 if you need it.)

Yes, all corrections are welcome.
Maybe PM me whatever packages need to be changed.

I'd rather post them publicly...


KX - Out Of Time
With the correct VPALACE.DAT. Also comes with a few readmes and wallpapers that are not in PoPOT's version.

There are also a great many mods that were originally distributed as a single LEVELS.DAT,
i.e. they did not come with any custom graphics, even though PoPOT lists them as such.
In their ZIPs, you should replace all DATs with the original, except LEVELS.DAT.
And then new screenshots are required...

Namely:
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000017 -- 13 Swordsmen
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000052 -- 4-Rooms Levelset
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000020 -- Alternate 1
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000044 -- Ataa's Levelset
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000051 -- Castle in the Stars
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000012 -- Despair: the Hopeless
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000022 -- ecco_Levels05
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000024 -- ecco_Levels09
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000025 -- ecco_Levels10
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000027 -- HWLev01
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000029 -- HWLev03
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000032 -- HWLev06
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000040 -- Mek's Levelset (Not sure, I don't have the original package!?)
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000049 -- mk Level 1
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000004 -- New 13 levels
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000026 -- PoP1 Remix
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000035 -- PoP1 Remix 2 (funny, PoPOT's version has KX's VPALACE...)
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000050 -- The Lost Persian (level 13 hangs the game?)
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000016 -- Toothpaste

Special case:
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000023 -- ecco_Levels08 -- Both LEVELS.DAT and VDUNGEON.DAT are custom.

These came with altered graphics, but different from PoPOT's version:
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000053 -- Return to Persia
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000009 -- Revolution
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000038 -- The Doomed Prince of Persia
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000003 -- The Great Escape
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000007 -- The Prince LOSVCI
https://www.popot.org/custom_levels.php?mod=0000005 -- The Shadow of The Castle

Some original packages are here: http://princeofpersia.ppa.pl/mody.html
But beware, some links point back to PoPOT!

Thanks for the overview.
I did fix the VPALACE.DAT of KX - Out of Time and updated a related screenshot.
And I added three new KID.DATs by Brain that weren't listed yet.

Yeah... Everything else I will probably never fix.
Because I'd have to spend my limited spare time doing annoying work to fix something not caused by me.
It's overwhelming too, the amount of work. But even in batches there's just no way. :|
