Doors and Floors

  Get it together man Now that I have finished the “walls and halls”, it’s time to renovate the doors and remaining floors. I have finished almost all the ground textures though (well a few could used tweaked too). In the past, I just… Continue Reading “Doors and Floors”

Do not fear it is “I”

Letters count? Awhile back I had posted that I had learned that I could update the font files. I never liked the font in Arena as it was too flowery for readability at such a low resolution. Each letter in the fonts was ranged… Continue Reading “Do not fear it is “I””

Overdue request but the Mailman is IN

Introfix After much wait and anticipation (more like I completely forgot to release it), TES Arena IntroFix is complete and can be downloaded here: http://www.nexusmods.com/tesarena/mods/4/? In this mod, I fixed three slides from the intro when you select new game. 3-Card monte I had… Continue Reading “Overdue request but the Mailman is IN”

Is that 80’s fashion?

The straight and narrow Some days I can blaze through images getting 5 or 6 done in a sitting, then other days just part of an image can take a couple days. When it comes to the Arena Depixelization Project (ADP), the easier ones… Continue Reading “Is that 80’s fashion?”

Picking back up the brush

Who’s down with ADP…yeah you know me After a substantial hiatus for real life, I’m back. My schedule has a lot more free time in it now and I should be able to make substantial progress on the Arena mod in the next few… Continue Reading “Picking back up the brush”

It’s getting hot in here AGAIN?

Warm to the touch NOTE: This kind of a rehash of a previous post from a different angle (slightly) that walks through the process more “visually”. One of the texture SET files edited recently for ADP was a 4 texture wall set that resembled a wall… Continue Reading “It’s getting hot in here AGAIN?”

The start of the gold rush….

The tool that saved the  Arena Depixelization Project (ADP) Last post, I covered the Arena Font Editor, 1 of 3 tools that I use to edit TES:Arena graphics (and fonts). The font editor is part of the Arena Modding Suite by Hallfiry. The other… Continue Reading “The start of the gold rush….”

Alphabet Soup in Tamriel

Letters from long ago After the recent work on the user interface, I decided to take a hack at changing the fonts. Arena fonts are stored as DAT files (the file extension that a lot of the text tables use). There are 9 separate font… Continue Reading “Alphabet Soup in Tamriel”

Polka dot shirts with checkered pants

Interface One item that bothered me was that the interface elements didn’t really match. It seemed as each screen had it’s own style, particularly when you compare the “esc” menu and the inventory. Once I knew I could edit the inventory backgrounds, I wanted… Continue Reading “Polka dot shirts with checkered pants”

Sometimes it’s easier to walk around then straight through

Compressed Quite of few TES:Arena IMG files are compressed in a crazy-wack-funky format that only the executable can decipher. No one has successfully found a way to decompress them. I had, quite a long time back, experimented with trying to replace them with uncompressed… Continue Reading “Sometimes it’s easier to walk around then straight through”
