Attention: Those files are experimental!!! I recommend that You look into the source code of the characters e.g. create_light_knight.zip especially janimate_light_knight before destroying anything! You are completely responsible for yourself when using this stuff. Be sure to have a backup before patching!!!

The download files can be used for creating the characters by using POV RAY and for patching ready made images into the XARCHON game - I tested it with version 0.50. This stuff doesn't use the capability of XARCHON to have more than one theme. I did this before but You had to compile it in rather than configuring it while the game is already compiled. I will return to that later.

I will explain it with the files for the light knight.

create_light_knight.zip povray files and shell script to animate (creates images to patch XARCHON). Needs a certain file structure, (./actors/light/knight/), povray and netpbm. Be sure to read the source code of janimate_light_knight ! ! !
patch_light_knight.zip unzip this into the actors/light/knight/ and weapons/light/sword/ directory on your computer to replace the old xarchon image files. On my computer the complete directoies are: /usr/local/share/xarchon/archon/actors/light/knight/ and
Attention: After that the original files are gone! So have a backup! This zip file already includes the directory structure. So if I have copied the file patch_light_knight.zip into the directory /usr/local/share/xarchon/archon/ and there I just type unzip patch_light_knight.zip it copies the files into the correct location.

Light knight patch_light_knight.zip 61kb
create_light_knight.zip 5kb
Light golem patch_light_golem.zip 245kb
create_light_golem.zip 6kb

If you are interested in joining me to build a 3D ARCHON character theme you are very welcome.
