I am almost as far to publish the version 0.3.0.0.
Unfortunately, i had no time to continue to care about your problem.

You can try to delete (better rename to .bak) the file "settings.ini" in the folder that contains the file "xcomextractor.exe". That effects that you must set your paths again. Maybe that helps, but i do not think so, but its a try.

Can you post me the line of your settings.ini here, that starts with "PFAD BB-Toolkit: "

Many thanks for remembering.

I will try to resolve this problem during the weekend, right now I can't really devote enough effort.

Great! But there is a little problem - as I wrote before in another tread, the download link for BB's toolkit in the discription is not working anymore. I know that you should not be bothered about this but it would be nice to fix this issue - at least for newcomers who would like to use your Image Extractor.

That image extractor is not that helpful for me or anyone to find UFO-D and TFTD sprites and images from the data files.

I want to get all of the 90s XCOM sprites so that i can collect its pixel and sprite colors and palettes with the aid of art programs (maybe legal and illegal ones)'s color picker tools. ><

As i've written in post#1, my Tool is a simple GUI for some tools of Bomb Bloke's X-Com toolkit.
If Bomb Bloke's X-Com toolkit don't provides the features you need, i can't do anything for you, but the description of his tool is:
Converts UFO/TFTD image files to GIF and back (and BMP, in the case of PCKs). Supports every known game file format.
So i think you shoul extract all images / sprites that are in these games.

That's okay, i still can't download the tool from the mod portal. It uses some stuff from the battlescape editor sprites and images.  :-[

Maybe i should read your post from today 10 times while i wait for a download link for the forums.


I'll try finding game files' sprites and images and find the files on my Samsung camera (The one i use with a micro SD card for a backup drive) some other time.

EDIT:
I checked my Samsung camera, it went to "F:\My Backup - X-COM\OPENXCOM (HUGE SURPRISE)\OpenXCom Modding Tools", and it doesn't have it. Sorry.  :(

Which tool you can't download? my XCOM EXTRACTOR or Bomb Bloke's?
For Extracting the XCOM images you have to browse in your XCOM folder and select files or folders which contains the images you want to extract.

Your XCOM Extractor. All i have to do is get it first, then browse in my XCOM folder and select the files or folders which contains the images and sprites i want to extract.

EDIT: There's also the topic "Bomb Bloke's X-Com Toolkit Downloads?:" by Dr.Crowley and Warboy's reply on there. https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,5531.0.html
