I record in uncompressed frames for 100% quality and save the frames which consist of the different animation frames... then I put ALL the frames (screenshots) in one HUGE bmp file, open that file in pantshop pro and remove ALL colors not belonging to the game...

I used to remove pixel by pixel from each and every frame.... not anymore with this new (smart) technique I came up with . So ripping the sprites is not so hard for me anymore..... but.... the game is on hold as I lack the time and motivation... so no sprites (bobs as some say) is needed....

Will make this sequal sometime... when I get the time.

Does paintshop pro have colour selection?

If it does, you can select colours, and if the background is different than the sprites, you can erase a lot like that.

igrafix picture publisher 9.0 also allows you to lock a certain colour and delete all the rest (or inverse etc)

That's what I do.

You could also take the difference with the background without the sprite (PSP can do that at least). Then you can select the background (it's become black), save the selection and load the selection in the original image. I find this is quicker than using color selection and modifying pixels by hand.

Hi Ironclaw, im raising this post out from the dirt to find out where it stands. Ironclaw, how far did you get with the sprite ripping? is this still an on going project? would you be willing to share your current sprite compliations?

ok that said, i think i can write script which can semi automate the ripping of these sprites. if you intresting in continuing this project ironclaw, let me know and i'll begin writing the code for the ripper (i dont believe it will take long).

Hi, laffo16. I've not worked on my Moonstone remake for years, so the whereabouts of all my ripped sprites (almost everything in the game) is unknown. I know it's on one of my 200-or-so burnt CDs, but which one? sorry, can't be bothered to look through them all (although I would have to at some point as I'm also looking for other things).

But you say you have some sort of automated ripping system , so shouldn't be a problem for you then.

I got the sprites I need to do my remake, so personally I wouldn't need this ripper anyway (I rip fast by hand, got my own method).

Since some years back, I've changed my way of coding, so if I were to continue on my remake, I would probably start from scratch anyway. Making this remake is something I really want to do, but I lack motivation... me wanting to do this is not enough.

thanks for replying Ironclaw, well i made a start on ripping the sprites yesterday, have all the movements for the blue knight so far, still got to get the death by sword and being hit by sword animations. do you mind if i post my sprite compilations here for future reference?

ironclaw, what language / libraries were you planning to use. i really dont have the programming skill set to jump right into a C++ project but have spent a few years working Autoit and VB. Im just wondering what other tools i might require apart from C++ to help create an engine such as moonstone (with TCP/IP multiplayer capabilities).

No idea :P.... I can only code in Macromedia Flash... only coding I've ever done... Flash rules if the game creator codes well and has an eye for details, which I do....

I've seen people which appears to have great coding skills put together awful games, like when the character moves, the frames of the walking animation/running/jumping etc isn't aligned properly so it just looks awful....

Well, I'm a perfectionist now :P, so my Moonstone Remake would have been awesome if I completed it....... got several games in the works... latest done was a Mario game: http://longplays.ath.cx/site/mario.php


About you posting sprite compilations in this thread would be great, as the title of the thread is perfect for it, which helps people in the future if they are looking for some. Making tons of thread about the same thing is not good... so go ahead

first draft for the blue knight, took longer then expected, hit some un-forseen problems as a result, some of the shadows may need fixing.

Hi. personally I would look into one of the modern high level programming languages. If you don't yet know C++, the advantages of C++ (if any) isn't worth the effort. Your coding skill matters more :-) Though, I would not use pure VB

C#, Java, ... (or even flash) are very nice languages and more than fast/efficient enough for these kind of remakes.

Except for the graphics and that you slash your enemies, I don't really see how that is Moonstone. Looks not bad and I like two player beat 'em ups, but do you plan to add any of the original Moonstone gameplay?

Move paks folder to pc or psp folder.
