EDIT: OK! I should have looked a bit closer. It seems there already is support for this. Kinda. Still needs to be zipped and still needs a file to tell it which ROMs it works with. So yeah, ignore this.


Original post:

I'd like to see support for hires texture packs made for Mudlord's Rice video plugin/1964video. Most packs are already in this format, and I don't see an easy way to convert between the two.

Right now the packs consist of a zip containing a pack.xml with info on the pack as well as a list of compatible games, and a folder with the internal name of the rom with all the textures in dds format. A texture usually has a name like 0479309CD89C989D3E800E60BDD3E377.dds
Mudlord texture packs are not zipped. The textures sit (usually in png format) in a folder with the rom's internal name. They can be in subfolders. A texutre usually has a name like ZELDA MAJORA'S MASK#0B3335BE#4#1_all.png

Now, I have NO idea the difficulty of implementing such a feature, but I might as well suggest it.

Yeah I've just finished discussing this in some fair detail with someone in another thread if you hadn't seen that.

guy kinda weirded me out anyway, kept saying some shit about hmmm I'm either using this or no retexture at all ":p" it's like :p as in I care one way or the other? As long as you GTFO my server and leave me with the last word in your thread I really don't care either way. :eek:

It was just a suggestion anyway. Not my problem if he has some paranoia against reasoning why he has a problem with it, and it's not like I can say I'd want to hear it anyway. :D
