SSI computer game Stone Prophet was set in the Ravenloft realm of Har'akir, which is based upon ancient Egypt. You could find all sorts of backdrops and walls there. If they can be obtained from Eye of the Beholder there should be no problem with Stone Prophet.

Look here under "Miscellaneous Program Hacks" / "Back Drops" / "Rocky". That's the only one I can think of right now as available. You'd still need to import the pcx with Toolbox, can't help you with that at the moment.

My apologies, Ben J! I haven't forgotten, I've just been busy with other things lately and at the moment I don't have access to my own computer. But I'll eventually get to it. Thanks for your input!

No problem, Olivier. It's not urgent.

But if you find the time, I also request the GSF walls from this thread.  ;)

i heard there is a limit to the amount of drop tlbs in a module. I have used every wallslot except wasteland and want to use that one as well. for some odd reason EVERY time i put some wallset in there (regardless of which one) it won't fill the slot out and put my art in there. damn boulderdash and poppycock!

Are you using the TOOLBOX program?

also the darius at sea 2 on this sticky doesn't work properly. I checked it many times, and then used the one from his mod Ship of horror and it works from there. BTW the at sea 2 in his mod is marble 3.. and it works.

That's odd...  ???

Thanks for notifying me of these issues. I'll have a look at them once I'm back home and find the time to do so.

What is missing in this article of collected knowledge about walls and backdrops is a discussion of Growwall.  How to use it, what it does, any bugs and so on.

There are several similar "growth" programs for FRUA. I used BACKGROW to multiply the available backdrops for "The Sect".

Maybe a separate FAQ thread on these programs would be a good idea.

My 'article' really was just a pretense to start the TLB collection. It's meant to be enhanced by other people's knowledge on these things. If anyone would be willing to write a short paragraph about Growwall or anything else that's missing, I'd be more than happy to add it to this sticky. Just post it here or in the other thread,

@Ben J: TSF walls are up!. I couldn't find GSF conversions for FRUA though. I believe the files in the thread you linked me to are all DC only?

@Baronnecro: Could you specify what exactly didn't work properly with the "At Sea 2" TLB that's offered here? I'm curious to find out what went wrong, if anything went wrong with it.

BTW, Kaz-Keith's old mountain wallset & backdrops have been added to the wilderness section. I'm not happy with slots 2-4 of the wallset though, if anyone has a suggestion on how to make them more useful, let's hear it! (I'm not offering to create new walls for it, so unless you can provide me with new walls I'm looking for suggestions on what parts of other wallsets could be combined with the crag & creeper wallset).
