[18:47:36] <nONSENCE> anyone got a sec?
[18:49:12] <nONSENCE> i'm looking for some docs on the flx format and the sfx format
[18:49:18] <nONSENCE> or a fileformat
[18:55:49] <wjp> hi
[18:56:09] <nONSENCE> hi
[18:59:12] <wjp> let's see
[18:59:20] <wjp> by flx format you mean Ultima 8's flex format?
[19:00:06] <nONSENCE> yeah, well i'm working with crusader but its the same engine
[19:00:19] <wjp> only up to a point
[19:00:45] <wjp> in any case, u8 flex format description: http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/pentagram/pentagram/docs/u8gfxfmt.txt?rev=1.1&view=auto
[19:00:54] <nONSENCE> ^_^ thank you
[19:01:29] <wjp> it describes the graphics flex files, but the first block ('Header chunk') is for all flex files
[19:01:48] <wjp> oh, and the 'Type information chunk' as well
[19:02:12] <wjp> as you can see it's very simply; just a basic list of indices/sizes near the start of the file followed by the actual data
[19:02:29] <nONSENCE> you guys decoded the sfx format also right? do you know if that translates to crusader?
[19:03:40] <nONSENCE> well anyways, thank you for your help
[19:03:45] <wjp> hm
[19:03:54] <wjp> just looking at the crusader files now
[19:04:19] <wjp> I'm guessing it's different
[19:04:52] <nONSENCE> ok
[19:05:04] <wjp> file headers look sufficiently different
[19:06:38] <nONSENCE> well looks like i'm going to be having fun for a few weeks then. :)
[19:07:50] <nONSENCE> are you guys around much?
[19:08:34] <wjp> depends on your timezone
[19:08:53] <wjp> I'm around quite often around this time
[19:09:12] <nONSENCE> ok
