Where to get MAKEPAK?
« on: September 05, 2008, 01:02:52 PM »
Some Years ago I had painted some Buses for Simutrans (Ikarus-260/280, LiAZ-677/5256 etc)...
Now I'd like to try to paint some more at least for Myself.
But I don't know where to get that Makepak from...  :-[

It's now called makeobj, and download links are next to game downloads... such as with

PS: Just thinking... aren't you S. Kroytor?

So then - welcome back!

Tutorial... hm, probably should be on wiki, but I can't find it :( It's command line program; when creating new objects, first parameter is "pak128" (change number for other sizes), then usually ./ ./ to compile all objcects in this folder to this folder...

Code: [Select]
makeobj pak128 ./ ./

To use makeobj more handy, you can create .bat commands :
Quote
makeobj pak128 2>err.txt

in "create.bat" (or other name) in the same folder as makeobj for convert dat and png files to paks.
If there is any errors, it will be written in err.txt

Quote
makeobj MERGE name.pak *.pak

in "merge.bat" (or other name) in the same folder as makeobj for merge all pak files in "name.pak" (change the name by editing the text).

If you are windows user, Pakhelper is your best choice. It's a frontend for makeobj, simple and very easy to use.
