C&C sprites?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

Does anyone know if it is possible to get the sprites from C&C (or RA)? I have looked on the net, but in contrast to almost all other games, they seem to 
not exist :)

Thanks!

Yes, you can get them.
They files called .shp, which contains a string of pictures (basically).
In your cnc95 folder there should be a folder called XCC, which contains programs to help extract those files.
XCC mixer.exe will let you extract the files.

There's a bit more to it all if you're looking to edit, and if someone knows where there's a write up on how to do that, a link would be much appreciated... as it takes a while to write it all down. (It's also been a little while since I've edited, so I'd need to do some recalling first).

I prefer to use SHP Builder...

 

Using XCC Mixer, EXTRACT(right-click) the SHP/sprite from conquer.mix, then open it up in SHP Builder.

From there you can EXPORT individual frames, animated gifs or an entire sprite sheet...

By the way where can I find the sprites of the infantry and tanks in the files? Any idea?

Wait, what? That's not a normal part of a C&C95 installation...

Uh. For C&C, it's just in there with all the rest, inside conquer.mix

In RA, the infantry are in lores.mix/hires.mix if I remember correctly, for respectively the original DOS infantry and the ugly upscaled versions of RA95.
