Export and Import QFG5 Backgrounds with qfg5pano

Postby GMFattay » Sun Sep 21, 2014 3:11 am

Qfg5pano is a command-line program that imports and exports panorama backgrounds to and from Quest for Glory 5. An exported background can be modified in image editing software and imported back into the game.

The community may be particularly interested in the unused WIP backgrounds found in some of the game's files. Some of the backgrounds also make nice desktop wallpapers :)

Example of exported background:

Yeah. I'm usually a web programmer so it took a bit of research and learning to write the program.

I'll be looking into extracting the region data (RGD files) for the backgrounds at some point and also the look and touch data.

The program is open source and can be freely extended by others ( background viewer GUI?). There are a few other programs on qfgmods.net for extracting and importing things like the meshes and skins from the game.

C# is my preference, so I will have a look when I get time.

Awesome, thanks for the comments guys - it would be awesome to get some help from other programmers =]

Another element of the backgrounds I forgot to mention is the animation overlays (GRA files). I have yet to investigate these aswell.
