    Default New Hypnotic Lure for Wizardry 8

    The sound of the hypnotic lure spell has always annoyed me,
    so i decided to create a new one and also a new animation.

    It should work with any known(to me;) english language mod.


    The .zip archive contains a .rar archve because 7zip v9.20 does not manage to compress .tga files sufficiently on ultra,
    in order to keep the archive size below the boards limit for attachents,
    and because postcount does not accept files with extension .rar as attachment.
    (funnily the board accepts attachments which contain the eicar test virus:D)

    The .rar archive contains a readme file which should provide all info to succesfully install/uninstall the hypnotic lure variation,
    in case of any issues ask here, also for commercial use permissions;)

    Ohhh, thank you for doing this That sound drove me to the point of me not using the lava lamp anymore because I couldn't stand it.
    Unfortunately, this doesn't work as the panelback_blue_05 file(s) seem to be missing.

    My apologies as i missed to tag that file, didnt even test whether the whole thing works,
    also the readme was missing.


    Next attempt with hopefully less caressness but the same overconfidence,
    i.e. again i didnt test it;)

    Wizardry8_Hypnotic_Lure_replacement.zip

    I had to shorten the sound somewhat in order to stay below max attachment size,
    but since sound and animation were not really synchronized before, the change should not mess up the appearance.


    In case of issues to extract the .zip(e.g. readme and/or .rar corrupted) i recommend to use 7zip version 9.20 or later from 7-zip.org,
    it will also handle the .rar archive flawless.


    Last not least let me know what you think of it or make sugesstions about improvements.

    Could you please complete the "Hypnoti" in the thread title with a "c",
    and in this topics 1st message(ID#3105575) reroute the link from the flawed one to the hopefully;) flawless attachment(ID#30535)?

    It works
    The sound is much better...much, much better! As for the visual...well...I stared at it for while...it is hypnotic after all...then decided it looks better but is more distracting. I can tune out distracting visuals better than terrible noises so all in all I like it. Big thank you!

    This is in preparation for my next playthrough. I decided to take a party from Wiz 6 to 8 this time, and "we" slogged our way through Wiz 6 (I will never do the pyramid again unless I lose my memory) and are now somewhere in Wiz 7. At some point in the future, we will be back in Wiz 8 and then I'll be properly grateful for your work every time I use the lava lamp or hypnotic lure
