[Release] "Сoffee", the Ultimate COF Editor v.1.0

Post by jetaman » Sun Sep 04, 2016 9:20 pm

Hello everyone,
Across the history of Phrozen Keep there were many people who announced making .cof editor, but these projects were never finished. The only available tool is DOS-based cof editor which doesn't have interface and very limited functions. Today I'm presenting you The Ultimate COF Editor, "Coffee". COF editing has never been easier, now it's really like having a cup of coffee :) It was written by a programmer by the name "Hz" by my request and it's based on Delphi. It can do everything you ever wanted to do with .cof files in real time, and also this tool can edit the Layer Priorities, which hasn't been possible before. On the screenshot you can see the explanation of the interface.

Image

This version has many new features:
  • Holding Left mouse button on the Animation preview window and move left/right – quickly rotate the directions.
  • Holding Middle mouse button on the Animation preview window and move left/right – increase/decrease the speed of animation.
  • Holding Right mouse button on the Animation preview window – move the image.
  • Double click on the Animation preview window – restore center position.
  • Left Click on the number next to the layer name – turn layer on/off
  • Middle Click on the layer name in The Layer Priorities section – fill the column with this layer.
  • Select one or more cells in The Layer Priorities section, then drag&drop with the right mouse button to swap the letter codes

    [v.1.0 update]
  • labelled two unknown bytes;
  • added shadow to animation preview window;
  • added an option to play animation once or loop;
  • added bounding box display in animation preview window;
  • fixed some small bugs;
And also you can open .cof files directly from your folder, for example data\global\chars\so\SONUHTH.cof
When you press "Save" the program will create a backup file in the "Backup" folder.
Here is the demonstration of my test character animation, where I edited the layer priorities, to make the layers play correctly.

Please write your comments and bugs feedback in this thread.

Credits:
Necrolis, Lectem, Kingpin, Ogodei for help with some of the unknown bytes.
Paul Siramy, for his dcc decoder.

Hello jetaman.
I downloaded this tool in the hopes that it might fix a problem I'm having.
Launching the program brings up the GUI, but I can't figure out how to actually open anything.
Clicking on the open button allows me to browse to a folder, but selecting a folder that has .cof files in it doesn't change the display to show anything related to that .cof file.
Is there some kind of setup I need to do in order to view files properly, or am I missing something obvious?

Edit: Browsing to the data/global/monsters folder allowed me to choose which token I wanted to view, and then it works just fine from there. I was choosing the token folders to start off with, and that didn't work. Thank you for this great tool!

TNspeed is the speed of your char animation in the Character selection screen, not in game.

I double click it, right click and chose admin, tried with xp compatibility as well, and it just doesn't open... tried dragging the cof to it and my context menu does not have the "open with coffe" option... downloaded the 1.0 version from link provided in first post... It just does nothing, like clicking on a blank space.. Any necessary program need to be installed? I have all the runtimes and frameworks on, and java and even delphi7 installed... :(
