@Andrew75,
I have both NiGHTS and Christmas NiGHTS for Saturn, if you want me to try and get anything from them. If they're like Sonic Jam, 3D Blast, or R, I should be able to just pop them into my CD drive and get all the stuff from there.

I have a lot of random tools that can convert things, too, if you need that.

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

Yeah I have em too actually. But with all my time going to AXSX these days its hard to find time to do any ripping of my own.

I had a thought the other day, What if Sonic xtreme used , or edited Nights textures for use in Nack's boss stage? I know that the chances of that are like 0.1% but who knows ... there are a few Nack boss stage scans around the net. One screen shows a white flower on grass texture. If I remember correctly nights had some grass textures ( maybe with a flower too). So I suppose we should be looking for any textures with grass and flowers.

That might work.

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

I found a LOT of grass textures, but not one of them had a white flower. There were all kinds of other flowers, though. I don't know if you want any of those (they're all pretty small VDP1 sprites that are used as textures).

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

Yeah lets see all the grass textures shall we? Flower and non flower both.
Thx !

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

I really wish SSF had a proper debugger for texture extraction. Doing this one-by-one in Yabause really sucked.

Anyways, here you go--all the grass I could find in Nights (+ All the greenery from the SX718 demo):
Here you go!

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

Thanks man , ! yeah extracting 1 by 1 is a real pain I know ! Went threw that with Sonic Jam , and also Shining the holy ark.

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

No problem.

I just wish we actually had decent tools for Saturn stuff. The Genesis and Dreamcast have so much, and the Saturn really only has very dispersed tools (though here is a nice collection: http://www.cyberwarriorx.com/?page_id=4).

Hopefully with the stuff happening on ASSEMbler regarding Saturn-IDE and PseudoSaturn ("use a flashed AR cartridge to boot CD-Rs") that'll soon change.

Its too bad Saturn has not got much in the way of hacker love in the past >__<

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

P.S. Just had an idea, Why not try and contact the guy who wrote the tools from your link and see if he'd be interested in helping check out the Leaked Sonic X-treme ISO for new textures.

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

That would be awesome! It would be a blast if we founded the hole Metal Sonic boss fight in there.  lol

12

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

There is metal sonic Boss Fight stage geometry in there but SANik never shared it .

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

Whaaaat!? So there is actully a chance that the hole boss fight is in there?

14

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

It very well could be ! but yeah Saturn hacking isn't so poplar so we may never know.
SANiK posted screens of the stage model in the old Senntient forums. last I looked they vanished into the dark recesses of the internet.

Edit: added a link
http://www.senntient.com/ubb/Forum13/HTML/000199-2.html its about half way down.

Edit 2:, actually he says that there was no additional 3d model data in the release. Its been so long I'd totally forgotten that.

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

Okey, I will search all over the interwebs for some hacking tools, see ya!

Im on a mission, lol.

Edit: Do you think that the 718 demo got a debug-mode or something?

16

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

Good luck ! , I think SaniK made his own tools though. no idea on debug mode >__<

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

There should be some kind of debug menu....
It's strange considering that "super jump" is the only "debug related" we have found.
The engine is actully kinda to advance for not having a debug mode...

By the way, were can we find SANiK?
Maybe I could email him.

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

SaNik (I'm not sure how he spells his name) seems to have vanished from the face of the Earth for some reason.

I have amassed a lot of Saturn tools if you want 'em, though if you scour the Internet you'll probably find most/all of them.

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

can you send me them? That would be nice smile

20

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

I'll try next time I have a chance. I have significantly less free time now than I had when I posted the above, so I can't be 100% sure on when I can upload them.

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

Yeah, school has started for me to, so same sh*t here big_smile

Re: NiGHTS into Dreams Assets

Here's what I could find.
