Hello!

I just started picking up object hacking, and I'm trying to find out how to recolor objects to avoid confusion with whatever they're cloned from.

Also, seeing how the website for Transmogrifier seems to be down, how would I go about getting a magic cookie?

Thanks in advance!

recoloring requires transmogrifier and an art program of choice, sorry

I already downloaded Transmogrifier from somewhere else, it's the magic cookie I can't seem to find out about. As for the art programs, I can't seem to open the IFF files. (I've tried Photoshop and Paint.NET so far.) Is there another file I'm supposed to edit to do the recolor? Thanks!

oh, gotcha


you open transmorgifier, find the item you want to clone, clone it and export the image file, then you recolor the bmps that are generated, save them then import them back into transmorgifier


it's pretty simple actually but you have to use transmorgifier to make bmps and you have to use it again to convert them back into proper iffs

There is no longer a script assigning magic cookies so you pretty much have to make one up yourself and hope no one else is using it.
You can reduce the chances that someone else is using it a little by checking the number that you pick against the magic cookie database that was set up at this yahoo group
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/magiccookie/info
Obviously you'll only be able to check your cookie against those of us who signed up there, but it is a start.

For the rest of it check out the Progressive tutorials at Bunny Wuffles School of Transmogrification
http://bwsost.woobsha.com/#ProgressiveTutorials

An old photoshop is used as the graphics program there so if you are using something else you'll need to "translate" some of the terms and techniques. The basics are all the same, though.

You may be able to use this quick reference we put together to help with that
http://www.simblesseoblige.com/viewtopic.php?t=512

That is found in the Novice Nook section of this forum.

If you use GIMP you might also want to check out Annette's
TUTORIAL: Beginner Object Making with Gimp
It is old so does not use the latest version of GIMP. If you do you'll need to make sure you save the sprites using the correct settings as shown here
http://workshop.woobsha.com/TheDrawingBoard/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=173

Paint.NET can certainly be used instead. I just don't know of any tutorials that use it.
