this is really not helping and i'm new to this Mod thing an the proompt and the direct what ever but i like how you put a example but still not helping me but at least make a mod fast for me to try

'it says C:\Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Sigh i'm uber stupid and confued

Well here's a simple tutorial:

1)Press the Start Button

2)Click Run

3)Type in CMD

4)Surrounded by quote sings type the location of the H2Otool into the command line and click enter.

For Example:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Liquid Entertainment\Battle Realms\h2otool.exe" help - This will display the Help/Readme menu

Example:

Now to extract files from an H2O archive you do the following:

Type in the location of the h2otool in quotes followed by the extract command, location of the archive and the directory where it should be extracted. Each of which should be enclosed in quotes. Then click enter.

For Example:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Liquid Entertainment\Battle Realms\h2otool.exe" extract "C:\Program Files (x86)\Liquid Entertainment\Battle Realms\Textures\Textures.H2O" C:\Program Files (x86)\Liquid Entertainment\Battle Realms\TexturesExtracted"

Example:

2.png

This will extract all the files located in the Textures.H2O file into a folder called TexturesExtracted.

Building a .H2O archive using the H2Otool:

Type in the location of the H2Otool, followed by the build command which is then followed by the location and name of the archive and the source folder of the extracted files. (Each of which should be enclosed in quotes)

For Example:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Liquid Entertainment\Battle Realms\h2otool.exe" build "C:\Program Files (x86)\Liquid Entertainment\Battle Realms\Textures\Textures.H2O" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Liquid Entertainment\Battle Realms\TexturesExtracted"

Example:

Here is a link to a thread that has another H2O extractor (but not an archiver) you can also use this file to extract archives:

ok thanks for all the help i moded everything i wanted to and built the model.H20 and when i load the game it say "model intialize(GATHERPOINT_DRAGON.LMD) meaning that wont load

Did you try modifying that file? And are you sure that your archive actually has that file in it?

How do I open lsk files?! :blink:

I suggest you start with opening and modifying the .TGA files :).

I GIVE UP!!!!!!!!!

ok i tried 'again' and is said ' Could not open archive' Can you help me with this Lord?

You probably did it wrong, did you use the "" signs around the archive? Did you make sure you are choosing a .h2o archive and that it ends with .h2o?

can someone help my problem

Just try remaking the archive.. Re-extract and re-build with your new content.

'Couldn't open archive'

I tried same Syntax which is used in all the comments but it doesn't work, maybe because i have Winter of the Wolf or because German basic version?

--> It can't work if the quotations are nested!

--> [...\h2otool.exe] ["extract"/"list"/...] [Archive path]

(Without this: [] )

Archive path without quotations:

Could not open archive

Archive path with quotations (like this: " ):

h2otool: missing directory

Archive path with quotations (like this: ' ):

Could not open archive

Fail... :/

Here:

"C:\Documents and Settings\Kevin Do\Desktop\h2otool.exe" extract "C:\Documents and Settings\Kevin Do\Desktop\bewinterofthewolf\Battle Realms\Textures\Textures.H2O" "C:\Documents and Settings\Kevin Do\Desktop\brwinterofthewolf"

See the difference? Look close into it and you will see what you did wrong :)

As for that h2o file, do you have the cd... somewhere? :P
