Hi glc,

The units will not be any good to you, because units are in .g2d format. Though they can be extracted (with triangulatortrees.exe), the extracted format is .wlr + triangulated .tga's. This is an unworkable format. You cannot convert wlr. back in to bmp with alphachannels.
That been said, I have never found a tool that is capable off doing so. The source for the triangulator is available but even for someone with programming skills I dont think it is entirely possible to make the triangulatortrees.exe to export in bmp/tga with alphachannels.

For buildings, that would be possible. They are in .G17/G16 format. Those can be extracted to with GigaPack.exe to .tga's with alphachannel.
From there it wouldnt be too hard to convert to bmp (PhotoShop?).

Are you asking for the buildings because you dont have them or are you asking for the buildings in .bmp format?

And what are those 2 attachments? I see a section off a building?

Regards.

Well units its not very need, buildings - main. I ask because i haven't Dukes of Warsaw (Poland), i have only CII NW. And i make Poland for ACFB, but works very much so i want play now. My idea before i make mod i can convert Poland and play with buildings of C2.

attachments its color+alfa as i need

i think here guys make mods are professionals and they can unpack poland's files light. I need pictures color+alfa or only color or another, but need PICTURES (not formats g17 wrl and etc). Editing and convert in ACFB i can do.

I will give you the .g17 files, and will explain to you how to extract them so you have pictures.

Download:

http://www.gamefront.com/files/21184857/PolandBFE.rar

1) Open GigaPack.exe in the folder.
2) Press open "g16" in the folder Poland Buildings G17 (see image)

3) Go to File - Export/extract Frames ( see image)

4) Find the extracted pictures with all buildstages in the folder /!Exported Frames

These are 32 bits .tga ( colour + alphachannel inside).

You will need to convert them to .bmp ( Photoshop,...)

I also added the MD file, because you will need them for the frames, blockpoints, lockpoints etc. You will however have to change the Cossacsks 2 strings ( ICON, MINICON, BIGICON,....) that are not supported by American Conquest yourself.

Hope that helps. If something is not clear or you have more questions, please ask. But dont ask me to do the work for you ,because I also have work to do and you wont help me with my work dry

E.A.

Hehe. tongue

Just try, its not that hard.

- Open the .32 bits argb .tga in Photoshop.
- Save as 32 bit .bmp
- Select the RGB channels

- Save the RGB channels as 24 bit .bmp (8-8-8=RGB)
- Select the Alpha channel

- Save the alpha channel.

Then go to palitra or BMP regenerator tool to fix / prepare for packing with MegaPack.
Rename the frames to 00000.bmp;00001.bmp,...
Prepare .lst file
Use MegaPack to pack to .gp format.

Bit off work, but nothing too difficult.

Tell me if you get it to work, then I'll give you those other buildings you wanted ( mill, mines?)

Regards.

I only found 3 unique Polish units 17th Pike, 17th Musket and a Horse Rider. The rest off the units are taken from other nations. (Do you want those too?)
+ Padre:

http://cossacksworld.ucoz.co.uk/glc/POLAND_CI_BTW.rar

Which mill do you want? The English, the Russian or the Spanish?

Winged Hussar, Peasant, 17th dragoon, Officer + Mills:
http://www.gamefront.com/files/21186229/GLC.rar

To extract .gp without colour distortion, you need to delete folder 0 and folder 1 in the GpArch and replace by the folder 0 and 1 found in the folder " For Cossacks".
Then ues GPview and extract.



To repack with MegaPackto American Conquest P, you need to delete the folder 0 and 1 and replace with folder 0 and 1 from the folder ' For AC' for proper colouring.

EDIT: I forgot to ask, but why are you converting Polish Cossacks I units to American Conquest?
This has already been done as far as Im aware in the Musket and Sword Mod (For AC-FB), so no need to redo that work. Just extract the GP's from the mods.gs1 from the Musket and Sword mod and put them in your mod. Credit the creator off the M&S mod ofcourse if you do so.
