Title: NoX Packer
Post by: Morden Tral on September 13, 2007, 03:31:45 pm
NoXPacker has been updated today to allow the exporting of every image file from the video.bag to a local folder path titled NoXImages in .JPG format.

Be warned, do not do this unless you don't mind having 186,000 images in that folder, I decided to change it to .JPG simply because it cuts the memory requirement in half compared to uncompressed .BMP images.

Again, you have been warned fools, this does not discern between object or item types or animations, it is EVERY SINGLE IMAGE.

Place it in the nox directory if it can't find it, also I think noxhub has an even more up to date version.

Dunno, when noxhub gets back up i'll tell you.

Yeah but the problem Rohkm is that the older version doesn't support every single thing.bin section......ug, could you tell me what all sections it is extracting?

Also do you have a link to the current Korean NoX community? Kains site seems to be down and even though I didn't understand the words google translation and the pictures at least gave me an idea of what you guys were doing (like the NoX party at a campus).

omg, what is the problem...

i see SpellInfo and ObjectInfo, but others not

well, kain says there're some problems with IP or something else, and the site will be fine soon.
btw sometimes translation services are good, but IT SUCKS. that's true...

I think that my code does not like your korean registry entries, i've just compiled a new version of the program that ONLY works in the same directory but it checks that first. Please try this one, as the old version checked the registry first.


Title: Re: NoX Packer
Post by: rohkm on January 11, 2008, 06:27:09 am
lol, it didn't work at first

but misteriously it worked when i moved thing.bin beside it, (of course both two files were in the same directory, i just changed order of files)

thx morden, now it works very well. and i see 8 files in "Westwood"


Title: Re: NoX Packer
Post by: Morden Tral on January 11, 2008, 01:13:20 pm
Well good....I guess, i'm not exactly familier with the korean vista but assume it's the same as american versions. Thats a weird ass solution.

Does it mean that it is not capable of extraction any other .bag files/formats?
Thank you.


Title: Re: NoX Packer
Post by: Zoa on July 29, 2009, 03:29:04 am
Which formats are you interested in besides video.bag? I believe NoxTools already has a way to extract audio.bag.


Title: Re: NoX Packer
Post by: Morden Tral on July 29, 2009, 12:15:00 pm
Noxtools does a full dump of audio.bag, no editing or single file export though I'm afraid

Noxpacker is mainly a thing.bin to/from XML converter, the image dump was added as a favor.

NoXModSuite has a video.bag editor (somewhat) and all of the rest of the .bins are editable in it.

Really all the tools should be combined but I'm not too worried about it since they aren't used that much and really aren't that hard to figure out.


Title: Re: NoX Packer
Post by: Csimbi on July 29, 2009, 04:32:48 pm
Meh, there are only three - images, video, video8.
I thought there would be a bag with "system" files - including global variables, quests, scripts, spells, skills.
I guess I ought to look somewhere else.

*Edit
Fixed typo


Title: Re: NoX Packer
Post by: Morden Tral on July 29, 2009, 04:40:15 pm
Well here is a little break down.

Video.bag: Images for the game, including all menus, animations, and HUDs

Audio.bag: All of the non music sound files for the game

Thing.bin: All of the general item data for every object in the game

Modifier.bin: Item by item modifier attributes and enchantments (weapon damage, type, description)

Gamedata.bin: Global variables and settings for the game

Monster.bin: Monster specific item attributes and properties (health, type, damage ect ect)

nox.csf: The string library, contains every dialog and text in the game

quests+scripts are handled in the maps, check out the map editor

I think you ought to put that info in a sticky somewhere. I assume I am not the first one looking for this kind of info.
I made some basic changes as a proof of concept using the NoXModSuite. I'll test them tonight once the family is sound asleep.

quests+scripts are handled in the maps, check out the map editor
I would not want to hijack this thread for this discussion, but those are probably map-specific scripts.
I meant general scripts that calculate various things and govern the AI.
I will check it out anyway, thanks.

Nox is a decade old, you won't find external scripts for AI or even most of the interactions in the game.

I'm using English version of Windows XP but new packer still has a problem with me.
Can you please update it? or release the source if it doesn't bother you?

In HKLM\Software\Westwood\Nox
InstallPath is C:\Westwood\Nox\Nox.EXE

Thank you.

You are using the packer I uploaded for the koreans then, you'll need to play it in the actual directory for that one.

Post by: Doce on October 17, 2009, 09:22:12 pm
You are using the packer I uploaded for the koreans then, you'll need to play it in the actual directory for that one.

I downloaded both version.
First version can unpack images (new one i guess).
Second version is built for koreans which checks directory/or file(i don't know).

I tried the both version.
Second version is working really good but, it only unpacks XML files.
I actually need to unpack images to use it on my Nox page.

If you have time, can you update the korean version or add a directory check to First version? please.

Post by: qwertyytrewq on March 22, 2013, 08:47:55 pm
when i try to unpack all the images, it says "loading image libraries, loaded 0 sections" but then just crashes. it creates a folder called "NoxImages" but it's empty. Tried running it in different compatibilities and as administrator but it doesn't dump the images. any ideas?


Title: Re: NoX Packer
Post by: Morden Tral on March 22, 2013, 08:53:51 pm
Do you have it in the nox directory and do you have the .dlls for DevIL with it? Also make sure your video.bag isn't corrupted


Title: Re: NoX Packer
Post by: qwertyytrewq on April 13, 2013, 02:45:28 am
yes, i just copy and pasted all files into my nox directory.

DevIL.dll
ILU.dll
ILUT.dll
NoxPacker.exe
nxzdll.dll

i'm pretty sure my video.bag isn't corrupted as all the other nox tools seem to work: map editor, mod suite, etc. exporting the images by section from the mod suite is going to DESTROY my finger from all the clicking lol
Posted on: March 22, 2013, 05:02:21 PM
still doesn't work ... help?


Title: Re: NoX Packer
Post by: Morden Tral on April 18, 2013, 02:35:54 pm
Does it throw an error? Or is it still dumping the empty file? Because I just downloaded the latest (linked from noxhub.net) version in the main post, placed it in my installation directory, ran it, and it worked fine.


Title: Re: NoX Packer
Post by: qwertyytrewq on April 19, 2013, 09:36:36 pm
no, no error. just says "loaded 0 sections" then closes. there's a "noximages" folder created in the game installation folder but alas ... it's empty ...


Title: Re: NoX Packer
Post by: Morden Tral on April 20, 2013, 01:18:50 am
There has to be something wrong with your video.idx

regardless i can unpack mine and upload, its not that large as jpg
