Gidday, Hope you are all well. Please forgive me if this is in the wrong forum,though it dose have partially something to do with Game Programming. My Daughter has 1,2&3 of the Lands of Lore Series that Westwood Studios put out a few years ago, She loved LOL3 and was dissapointed when Westwood announced that they would not continue with the series. I have my own small Engine, and would like to strip out some of the Graphics/Sprites and level Geometry that is housed in the .wsx files, and use this to make here a Lookalike/Continuation Game for my Daughter to play. On and off, over the last 2 years I have searched the net for tool/s to allow me to extract the files from Westwoods .wsx format. I only found one, and it only allowed me to extract the Movies/Cutscenes and SoundTracks only. I tried to Email Westwood, but only got Computer generated Replies. If any one has, or knows of a tool that can extract LOL3 files could you let me know :) Once Extracted,I'll have no problem converting the level data to my Engine's format. Thanks TakeCare.

You didn't get any hints from the format of the movies and soundtracks? I think you have to expect being forced to reverse engineer the file format, but I assume you've already inspected the files looking for tags/metadata? The final option is to check who the programmers were and send them a mail directly, but I'm not sure if they want, or even are allowed, to help someone with something like this.

Hi Erik,
Thanks for your reply.
I did'nt access the files myself. I used a program that I downloaded from a site over a year ago, that at its time of development could only extract the SoundTracks and Video's, but no ArtWork ect.
I tried Emailing the owner, but no reply.
These days the site dos'nt exist any more :(

I expected to have no luck with this Idea, but thought I would ask ,just incase someone else had attempted this, and had luck.

There are a lot of Game file Extraction utilities available, covering most of the popular game formats.
I guess I'm unlucky enought to pick on a not so popular Game :)

TakeCare.
