So I found my Creature Creator CD...

Unread postby wankerstein » Sat May 25, 2013 5:19 pm

It was under the dresser. Lofty system requirements on the back...2.0GhZ P4 with 512mb RAM and a 128mb video card. :lol: Anyway, I've heard that the creature gaits were better in the original Creature Creator. I'm about to start poking around in the packages, so I'm curious if this is true. And if so, has anyone attempted to 'upgrade' Spore with them?

I have. It didn't really work. The .gait files for the final game are written in weird characters and don't seem to be compatible with the CC ones.viewtopic.php?f=16&t=2301#p6098

If anyone can figure out a way around that, I'll love you forever (but not in that way.)

Hrrmmm. I MIGHT be onto something. I think I may have identified the file format...

Edit1: Infinity Engine compiled script file? Resembles it sort of.

Edit2: OK, first idea was a failure. Sort of. Used Trid on one of the gait files, it's telling me it's a PrintFox (C64) Bitmap. That sounds even less right. I'm starting to think it's just encrypted plaintext. Wondering if the word GAIT that appears at the beginning of the file might have something to do with that.

I'm personally more interested in putting the mating call sounds from the dinosaur and insect mouths back into the main spore game.
Spore is creative, even the mods and hacks.
Or, should I say, especially the mods and hacks?

Included the CSA_Audio.package in my GA folder and the insects were making cricket-y noises for the mating call. Is that the effects you are talking about?

Edit: Looks like radial omnivore mouths had a different sound, too.

ahh, yes, that. Do you know if it is possible to get the creature creator demo for that file if you already have the full spore game?

I have no idea. I'm currently working out exactly which files in the package actually change the voices. So far it looks like the entire set for the carnivore jaw is different between cc and spore, including sing. Some changes with bug mouth besides mating call. Radial jaw gets different mating call, too.

EP1_PatchData.package is the big obstacle, it seems. Interferes with all the fun. Wondering if things like 'PackagePriority' and the like might help.

This makes me want to get CC now, but it'd just be a waste of money for me because I'd just use it to move the mating call sounds over and other files. I wouldn't actually use it. xD

Don't worry, I have the files.

Also...last post on this thread was 3 years ago. A violation of the rules? No...but I figured you may want to know nonetheless :lol:
