made some great progress on this yesterday, and have introduced some initial BEXT data reading into it.

The main problems I have now are in changing the code to recognize differences... the fact that the entire STATS data is different doesn't help, and I will certainly be needing to changing the Import/export sections very soon!!

Once I have all this cleaned up, I can start searching for new data blocks I think :)

having to make a lot of very careful tweeks with save-game overlays, and dealing with the BEXT file, so this next update might take me a little while.

It will be nice to see if it helps determine a few more bits of map data though and/or placement of 'current' spells etc.

Very nice horace :)

How do you do the place of the character parts (arms etc..) do you store an X/Y on the screen or use some kind of formula to work out where it should be placed?

i dont 'assemble' the body (legs, arms, torso etc) , i just have each whole body available in a background image along with each head, and i then only have to assemble the two together which is very easy, as if you line the top of all the bodies together (either male or female) the head always has the same relative Y offset.

Maybe in the future i will be more efficient by only storing the arms / legs/torso of each once, but until i know what data selects each part relative to the entire body i dont think it's worth me doing.

I will, however, investigate re-colouring of the other monsters, and i will also have a look into the extra colours provided in the extended level data at some point.
