View Full Version : Using Costume Ripper with DOTT

01-16-2003, 04:21 AM

I wanted to rip the costumes of Bernard walking in DOTT but I found that the colors were all wrong. And the colors are wrong with Laverne and Hoagie walking as well... Every thing wlse is fine though.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this??

I've experienced that trouble before.
I don't know exactly how I solved it, but it did.
What's your color resolution, and OS?

Its 1024 x 768 on 32-bit using XP but I don't think that has anything to do with it cause it dosn't happen to any of the other costumes.

Hmmm... well, that's weird.
I know it's the palette, but I don't know what's wrong.
It works for me.

Try lowering the colors to 16-bit and tell me if it works.

Nope it still does it... Does it happen to you when you view it in costume ripper? Or did you like, use photoshop or something to fix it after?

It happened to me when viewing it through Costume Ripper. Have you tried that other Costume Ripper as well?

I'm not sure what I did, but I think I installed Win98 again. Not any clean install though.

This most likely has nothing to do with your OS/screen resolution/whatever. It's probably a bug in the program and can not be fixed unless the author of the program traces the bug and fixes it. So I don't really think there's anything you could do to fix it yourself. I could be wrong though.

But Tomas...
It worked for me, when I re-installed Windows or something like that. It works superb on my new computer aswell.

But my laptop (XP) has these nasty copy and paste bugs :p
When I copy, and then paste it into an app three inches or something from the right has been added to the left side.

Isn't that a bummer, or what? :p

Hi, does anyone know if the costume ripper is supposesd to show every costume numbered? With sam&max mine skips large groups of costumes. Say it will do 1,2,3,4,5,6 but then jump to 34. It does this quite reguarly throughout the costumes.

Click Start -> Run -> and type 'Command' or 'Cmd'

now type:
cd C:\costrip\dxfull\
(change the directory to match your costrip directory)

then type
costrip D:\DOTT\TENTACLE.001


costrip D:\SAMNMAX\SAMNMAX.001


By the way, dimix. I experienced a few colour problems with a few of the DOTT costumes, mainly the ones near the end. If you want a costume ripping, give me the costume number and I'll rar up the PCX files and post them up (providing that the costume works for me)

I don't seem to be getting all the costumes though :-(

I've been having trouble getting all the sounds though also. I don't know if my cd is being read right. with the sound issue though the monster file couldn't be copied to the hard drive. I was able to copy the samnmax.001 file without a problem, but It doesn't seem all the costumes are there.
