Is there a way to change characters in an amiga game.
By exemple lionheart is beautifull but don't like so much the hero could we change someting for that?

Ps: i don't think so, but perhaps....

It would be possible, but not easy.

It's not usually just a case of replacing a few raw gfx files, you'll have to know exactly how the gfx are stored and ensure your gfx follow exactly the same layout/methods etc.

Also there are palette considerations not too mention the fact the game might need to be dis-assembled, modified and recompiled!

Worth the hassle? dunno you tell me!

I like the feline Valdyn character, also co-starring in Ambermoon. But i guess you need a more Turrican-like sprite, heh?

You have to admit though, valdyn is a fag, just look at the way he runs.

He may be trying to rescue his girlfriend, but he's just kidding himself.

That's not his fault, blame the Thalion guys for this lousy animation.

@Retro-Nerd

personally i felt that thalion captured "valdyn's" REAL essence very well )

@turrican3


If you could find a hardcore coder as crazy as you, then you stand a chance at replacing the character.. to be honest, it would be much easier to write your own game these days!

Even if you change the GFX, I presume you'd have to do something with the palette too. Which I wouldn't even want to consider.
