Arrow Character files and how to get them

Due to a big number of requests for CHR files (my connection's too slow to send them to everyone), I uploaded them to my server.

CHR files (4.36 MB zipped)

The zip file currently contains: Boaz, Karel, Nephilim Karel, Eckhardt, Bouchard, Carvier, Gundersen, Muller, undead knight and zombie, as well as instructions on how to use CHR files. If you'd like any more characters added, PM me and I'll add them, then post URLs here.

Also, if you want to know how or your connection is slow, here's how to do this yourself:

Step 1: download this.
The package contains the texture ripping program, as well as the useful UnCLZ converter.

Step 2: move UnCLZ.exe and the two .dll files to your levels folder (usually C:\Program Files\Eidos Interactive\TRAOD\Data\maps). Notice the folder's full of files with names like prague1.gmx.clz. These are archives that need to be unpacked with the UnCLZ tool before they can be opened with the texture editor.

Step 3: run command prompt (Start->Run->cmd), go to the levels folder and type "unclz level_name", for an example "unclz prague1.gmx.clz". This extracts the level files from the .clz file. The new file's called prague1.gmx and can be opened with the texture editor

Step 4: run the texture editor and open the desired level (the .gmx file). Now chose a CHR file, check the textures to see if it's the one you want, and click "Save to CHR". Save the CHR file to the characters folder (Data\char in the TRAOD folder). You must have the patches installed to have this folder.

Step 5: Change the name of the wanted character's CHR file to the name of the character you want to replace it with. For an example, to replace Kurtis with Boaz, rename the file Boaz.chr to KURTIS.CHR. This replaces Kurtis with Boaz in all levels/cutscenes. Acceptable file names are usually the same as characters' names in the game, only in all caps (KURTIS, BOAZ, JANICE etc). Exceptions are Eckhardt (ECK.CHR) and Gunderson (GUNDERSO.CHR).

Have fun

Here's a list of character names, thought this might help with replacing:

ANTON - guy next to the boxing ring I think
CHINAMAN - guy in the herbalist shop
LARAD - Lara in jeans
LARAC1 - Lara in Louvre outfit
LARAC2 - Lara in Prague outfit (before the shorts)
LARA - Lara in shorts
LARAS - Lara in diving suit
LUDDICK
CARVIER
PIERRE
BOAZ
JANICE
FRANCINE
GUNDERSO
MULLER
ECK
ECK_FIRE - the burning clone of Eckhardt
DOORMAN
KAREL
KARELNEF or KARELNC - the Nephilim form of Karel
KURTIS
RENNES
DRUGDEAL - the guy at the beginning of Parisian Ghetto
TRAMP_A and TRAMP_B - the hobos

More (enemies, characters that aren't in the game, etc) can be found in the file ACTOR.db in the TRAOD/Data folder. This file can be opened with MS Word.

Thank you Cat

I think it's a good idea for it to be made sticky for a while.

Hi Catlantean

Do you have any Lara skins where you can play as Lara in any of her outfits in the game?

Not yet, but I'm working on a program that will make this possible...
