Static objets from c2m

Beitrag von Remik » Sa 5. Apr 2014, 16:21

Hi
I have a question for the old timers ... How does the map C2M open the file staticobjets.inc?

c2m is an archive format (similar to "tar") in which the actual map files are taped together. All *.inc files get included in map.ini, which is the only file that is actually loaded by the game. In the c2m format, *.ini files are compressed and encoded into cif format, so that's where your data lies.

Kind regards

Similar to .tar? However, popular programs (winrar, winzip) can not unpack...

And what is .CIF? I found online that are binary data. Can convert them to .inc? I think not :(

Yes, similar to tar, but not exactly. The c2m is a format itself and since it's not very popular, programs like WinRAR or WinZip don't support it.
CIF is a binary version of .ini (or .inc) which has also been encoded (using a custom algorithm). It is possible to convert .cif to .ini/.inc and back, I once wrote myself a program to do that.
Here's the cif part of it:
Cif.zip

Read file into byte array, pass array to Cif.decodeFile(), write return value to new file.
I'm not doing a main function for this now as I'm gonna write a full c2m converter anyway.

Kind regards
