    DRS Viewer.... does that have another name, I didn't see it on softseek, or do you mean extract like winzip extract? And if you didn't use a 3d program could you possibly give a short synopsis of your technique? I am sure wasn't easy but the unit looks great. Good job!

    That's because they are big. It would be nice if someone could make a General Mohc Dark Forces level 3 dark trooper that uses the gun, shoots missiles, flies, etc. It would also be good if someone made a Kyle Katarn unit too.

    You might find the Phase 3 Dark Trooper and Kyle Katarn in Dark Forces. Unfortunately the frames are in a 2-D format, It would look odd seing an unit that is 2-D in an 3-D isometric enviroment :(. Since Dark Forces is an old game (Releaced in 1995), Runs on DOS, and webpages relating to mostly Dark Forces are eather closed or put there energy to Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight and Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. To extract a Dark Forces animation, you might need to get thoes Level Editors to extract them by (I dont remember since it was a long time I have played Dark Forces ;) )

    CivGeneral, Nice Unit...I made new Attack & Run sounds and Changed/Tweaked all others. Added Fidget and Fortify sounds altered from your sound. I made a new units_32.pcx file and the Large and Small .pcx files. The .ini file has been adjusted along with all sounds for timing. The Attack Sound will now match the Animation and the Run is the best I can make it without an amb file.
    Size 171 KB...Get the Download here: http://www.civfanatics.net/uploads4/Dark_Trooper_Sounds,_pcx_files_and_ini.zip

    Hope you like the changes. Enjoy

    :)
