Need the graphics from heroes IV

Hello!

I've been a huge fan of HOMM since the beginning of time. But it has always annoyed me that in each version they improve some things, and remove other things that i thought was great.

So, I decided to make my own version of the game, with the best from all the games combined.

I have come pretty far without it, but now i would like to add the graphics to the game. I'm too lazy to make it myself, so I'm gonna use the graphics from heroes 3 (combat) and 4 (map,castles).

What I need right now is the sprite sheets of the HOMM4 hero Knight (male and female) walking in all 8 directions. It would be a hell to rip them all from the game, and I don't know how to open the files in the install folder.


I promise, I will post the game here!

sorry, don't have the sprites or anything, but just wanna say ur on a noble quest... assuming you finish the game , also wanna say that some people like the improvements/removals, and some don't, so this won't appeal to everyone
what are you gonna add/remove? Whats it gonna be like?

Thanks for reply.

One of the things I missed in Heroes 4 was creature upgrades. So, by using the creatures of higher levels, I added an upgrade for each (squire -> archers and so on. I will add griffins myself)
And the hero can no longer move without troops, and vice versa.

I probably won't be able to make you prefer this game to the original one, as I WILL have to remove some features. Instead of 7 creatures in an army, my game is limitet to 5 (might consider increasing it later)

I just released a (very) early demo. Not much to do, except moving around, enter the castle and switch player (3 players).

I'm mostly doing this to improve my programmingskills, and I can not guarantee I will finish the game, but I will do my best.

Sindert,

Do you know how/if it is possible to extract the creature animations from Heroes 4 then?  I've tried countless programs, but no luck.

That's what I was asking for.
Thought that if someone, somewhere knew how, it would be someone on this forum

Thanks! I had almost given up. I'll try it....

Hm.. I've been trying it a little now, but it doesn't seem to recognice all the files. And the files I extract are unknown to my computer.

How do I extract the Hero animations as a gif/a series of bmp?


EDIT:
http://gmc.yoyogames.com/index.php?showtopic=393010 Here's the link to the project topic on the gamemaker community.


EDIT2:
I tried some more, and it seems that program is exactly what I'm looking for! Thanks!

its impossible to extract a series of images as a single gif... you'll have to extract them one by one using the save as bmp and then nerge them using other program (like gif movie gear)
