These scripts allow you to convert gta1 to gta2 car deltas and to recompose gta2 deltas.to be able to do this i have to know what car in a delta is for what purpose.
for gta2 this page describes what the 20 delta cars are for http://en.wikigta.org/wiki/Creating_veh ... %29#Deltas
gta1 seems to have 12 delta cars. if there is no doc i could probably figure it out.
but there is also 1 or more cars that have 16 delta cars (one example in attachment). has anybody an idea what they are good for?
Edit: there are also cars with 18 cars per delta
no idea if it is possible to use palettes with imagemagick. i asked in their forums. but until now you can do it by hand in gimp. Fortunately you can use palettes of all remaps for that with the pal export function of the new sty tool version now.How to use:
-for all scripts you need to have a portable imagemagic in subfolder "im"
-to compose you need cdelta00 -cdelta19 in the folder. if one is missing it is replaced by a mirror version if it is a dent and otherwise with "gta2car.bmp". make a copy of the single car image to with that name if one or more deltas are missing. then run compose_gta2.bat.
-to decompose gta2 deltas drop the Delta file on decomp_gta2.bat file
-to decompose gta1 deltas count the cars in the Delta file and drop it on the right .bat
-to remove edit files execute clean.bat
-to convert gta1 to gta2 cars decompose, then run arrange_gta1_gta2.bat and then run compose_gta2.bat
-To create pseudo deltas for a car that doesn't have deltas name the car file gta2car.bmp and run compose_gta2.bat
-DeltaSet_gta2out.bmp is the final Delta
-gta2car is generated out of the gta1 delta when you convert from gta1 to gta2.
-it outputs rgb bmps. to make it gta2 compatible do this
-Open gimp, open image, image>mode>indexed, choose optimal palette, acknowledge and save
-you have to apply the palette also to the single car imageto make it remapable do this
(works also for single color cars in gta2):
-First export a palette that matches your car the most (car pals are from 168-202) with the NEW sty tool. use gimp to apply an external palette: open image, display palettes dialog, right click on any palette, choose import palette, choose palette file, select the palette you have exported, acknowledge, image>mode>indexed, choose own palette, select the one you imported, deactivate "remove unused colors", acknowledge and save.
-If it is already indexed make it rgb and then indexed again.
-If the remapable area are contains colors that are in all palettes this can cause problems.
-If it doesn't look very well export any default car from gta2, remap it in gimp with the pal, adjust the colors of car you want to import by comparing, then apply palette.
-If it still doesn't look good enough you have to edit by hand. if it only looks bad when it is remapped then you could try to apply only the differing color part of the palette to the painted parts of the car. use gimp to separate the image and use a text editor/or palette editor in gimp to separate the colors of the palette. then recombine and apply whole palette. (<- i never did this, don't know if this is required for any car at all. I put it here just in case)If you are searching for gta1 cars go there
