This is the old tool that Pug/Paul made in June 2000. Since his site has disappeard, I'm making the tool available here. It's sad that all the file format information he had on his site is gone...
Here's a small part of the included Readme file:
AoWRead will read and dump most .pfs files:
-Ability, Campaign (.CAM files), Heroes, HeroRes, Items (and .AIL files), Spells, Text, UnitGfx and UnitRes
It ain't pretty, but you get the info and structure.
AoWRead will output format as HTML for Campaign and UnitRes files.
AoWRead will output all of the images contained in an .ILB file.
- The output'd files are writen as .RAW types.
- No header information, no size data, just each pixel in 32-bit RGB form.
- Most graphics readers should read these, paint shop pro will read the files.
