Soul Reaver PC Texture Utility

software and article by Ben Lincoln

 

This is one utility with a self-explanatory name. It allows the export (either individually or all at once) of all of the texture maps used in the PC version of Soul Reaver. It can also import PNG files of the same size as a Soul Reaver texture map and use them to replace existing maps, which allows for limited customization of the game.

Usage:

There are some very helpful troubleshooting instructions in the readme file that is included.

There is some interesting material hidden in the file, including a lot of mauled and bleeding corpses that do not appear in the Silenced Cathedral, and the full complement of symbols from all parts of the game.

Tou-ou Nightmare discovered that the Utility works on the Fire Glyph demo for the PC as well, although it has only a fraction of the textures present in the full version.

Like all of the software I've written, this application requires at least version 2.0 of the .NET Framework, which is available from Windows Update or the Microsoft website.

For those with an interest in writing their own software, the source code for this application is available in the Source Code Collections article.
