Gold-Box Walls & Backdrops
« on: August 24, 2015, 03:17:34 PM »
Do we have a complete set of walls from the original Gold-Box games available for FRUA?  I've seen scatterings of walls here and there, but I'm wondering if we have all the walls completely converted, especially from games like Treasures of the Savage Frontiers?  I'm definitely looking for a collection of Gold-Box style walls and backdrops.

In addition, I'm hoping to find VGA versions.  The EGA wallsets are really nice.  Are there VGA versions of those available?

I know it's not what you asked for, but you can use gold box explorer to look at and export any of the walls (and other art) you want.

I don't have the tools to make the walls at my disposal (also don't have the time), which is why I was hoping someone already had them made.  It's something I noticed missing in the archives, and I figured by now we'd have a full set of those walls for FRUA, but I guess I was wrong.

We may have all the walls converted, but as you say, they may be scattered among many artpacks (or even a few might be found only in mods).  Can you think of a wallset that you haven't seen?

There are definite walls missing from Treasures of the Savage Frontier I haven't seen anywhere (at least not in VGA form).  Same with Gateway, I think. 

I'm just surprised the walls aren't all together somewhere in a ready to use zip file somewhere, that's all.
