[solved] Problem with Wadext

Post by NeoHippo » Sun Dec 18, 2016 16:33

I tried to convert Herian.wad with
  • wadext -tx Herian.wad
It did not work, TEXTURE1, TEXTURE2 and PNAMES remained, no TEXTURES.

I used both, batch file and command line window.

[edit]
The readme file suggests the above command line, I tried
  • wadext Herian.wad -tx
and this time it worked.
Both TEXTURES files were written to a folder decompiled, but it also extracted just about everything
else as well into the folder with wadext.exe.

[suggestion}
Could it extract the lumps into a specific folder, under Wadext, with the same name as the pwad.

You misunderstood what -tx will do.
It will not convert the files from inside a WAD but from loose files in the current directory.
The motivation for this was to allow conversion of these lumps when they come from inside a PK3 which cannot be extracted as a WAD.

Thanks for the clarification.
When a pwad is already extracted into its various parts, then it works quite well.
When a pwad is still in it's pk3 form, then Slade3 can be used to convert TEXTURE1 and/or TEXTURE2 to TEXTURES.

Handy either way. :)
