Title: Documentation for Sierra's original tools
Post by: ZvikaZ on November 03, 2020, 03:55:51 AM
Hi.

Do we have documentation for Sierra's original tools? (https://github.com/OmerMor/SCI16/tree/master/TOOLS)
I see there few docs for specific tools, but there are so many .exe files, it's hard to tell even what files does what...

Let's take a concrete, surprising, example - suppose I'd like to replace some voice for a message in Freddy Pharkas - could one of these tools help me? which one? how can I know, beside trial and error of everything with a name that looks related?

Of course knowing how to invoke a tool is one thing, actually being able to troubleshoot with it is quite another.

Some of them have basic help in the files themselves. At least syntax is often displayed by simply running the file with no parameters.

I'd start from these threads:
SCI: http://sciprogramming.com/community/index.php?topic=1631
AGI: http://sciprogramming.com/community/index.php?topic=1814

IIRC they link to more tools, and I added some one-liners where I could.

Other than that - we're pretty much on our own. WYSIWYG.
