First of all, I wanna say Im new to this forum. So if this topic doesn't belong to this section, tell me where should I send it to and pardon my ignorance, please
Ok, now Im going to introduce myself! --> Im Jamiann [JM] from Argentina, and I love PC and PS2 retro-gaming.
Some of my favorite old PC videogames are:
. Star Wars e1 Racer
. Star Wars e1 Battle for Naboo
. Star Wars e1 Tthe Phantom Menace
. Activision's Spider Man [only the first vgame from the series that was released back in 2000]
. Motocross Madness 2
. MX vs ATV Unleashed
. etc etc etc
OK, so now let's say I want to mod the first 3 old StarWars vgames.. Im talking about decompressing their core game data files in order to view\extract textures, extract sounds and music, edit DLLs to increase game's performance, edit their main exe's to be able to use hidden cheat codes, etc etc etc
Well, here goes my question:What kind of knowledge do I have to learn and also what programs should I use in order to accomplish my goal?
I know modding vgames is not an easy thing, but if possible Id like you guys to tell me where to start.
Thanks in advance to all the ZenHAX community, and very special thanks to Luigi for giving us the chance to share and learn knowledge from his forum.
