Extra Resources

Post by qualakon » Fri Apr 25, 2014 9:01 pm

I've compiled a quick set of resources that people working with Freeablo may or may not find useful along the way.
  1. Darren Lamb's Assets - Crypt, Fountain, Inventory Items
  2. Trader - NPC hidden on retail copy
  3. Diablo 1 Modding Tools v1.06 - A comprehensive collection of Diablo and Hellfire tools and resources
  4. Pre-Chochlik Mod - To give a template of what we're working towards
  5. Hellfire v1.05 - A community collection of bug and animation fixes for Hellfire including all Hellfire files
  6. Bard NPC - Created by Belix
  7. New Stylish Gladiator Look - Created by noname

If I can add to this, as I said before in other places, this started as an acedemic project for college, so ofc I had to write up a report. In this report I have a pretty detailed outline of the file formats involved in Diablo.
You can see them here: http://wheybags.github.io/fyp/fyp.pdf in the File Formats section.
Some more good resources are http://www.thedark5.com/info/mod.html a list of hex addresses for various bits of data hardcoded into Diablo.exe, and Jarulf's guide http://www.lurkerlounge.com/diablo/jarulf/jarulf162.pdf which contains a bunch of info including various game formulae

That was a great read, thank you for that.I learned more about the game I've been playing for 17 years!

I've added that write up to the included Diablo 1 Modding Tools as it'd be handy to have for people just starting out this Diablo modding business.

I've heard of this : https://github.com/galaxyhaxz/devilution
Devilution
Diablo devolved - magic behind the 1996 computer game

Reverse engineered by GalaXyHaXz in 2018
The dev claim to have decompiled the Diabloi exe and dll and find a way to rebuild it (or at least something like that, from my comprehension).
