How get .grp files?
« on: March 02, 2023, 03:47:52 AM »
Hi!
I have read a lot of topics on this forum. But I didn't find any infomation about how get GRP files. "Delete mine too" mentioned that MAINDAT.WAR contains levels,some pictures, fonts, unit/building-,cursor-,map-graphics and some (yet) unknown stuff. But if I open MPQ file by Ladik's MPQ Editor I see only pcx, xxx, pud and wav files. Found and tried other tools. And tried to get data from MAINDAT.WAR - Result is same.
How to extract all graphics?
Idealy in bmp or png format.

also i dunno what MPQ u tried to open cuz War2Dat.MPQ have ALL of GRP files inside
u just unpack those and then can use some progs like grpedit or grp converter to get bmp images
very easy
