Our last Daily Spelunk


2:30 PM on 09.23.2013



Over the weekend, we posted the final episode of The Daily Spelunk, and you can view it here if you like. It's a delightful romp and a hefty send-off to one of my favorite projects we've done on the site.

As you may have noticed in this episode and the prior one, we've been using some custom sprites of Jordan and myself in the show. If you would like to use these sprites yourself for some inexplicable reason, I'm making them available here. To use them, you'll need a program called SpelunkTool to extract the game's textures, replace the sprite sheets of one or two of the characters with the ones provided here, then repack them. Here's a step-by-step process:

  1. Locate your Spelunky game files on the drive and go to the Data\Textures directory.
  2. Copy the files "alltex.wad" and "alltex.wad.wix" to another directory.
  3. Use SpelunkTool to unpack the files.
  4. Open the alltex\PLAYERS directory which is created and find which character sprites you wish to replace.
  5. Rename the new sprite sheets with the filenames you have chosen and copy them into the alltex\PLAYERS directory, overwriting the files there.
  6. Repack the alltex directory with SpelunkTool
  7. Copy the alltex.wad and alltex.wad.wix" back into the Data\Textures folder. The characters should now appear in your selection (provided you have unlocked the character for which you replaced the sprites)

You can grab a zip file containing the custom sprites and SpelunkTool here. Mad thanks to Simon Beaudoin for drawing the sprites!

What if videogame consoles were Transformers?

This isn't clickbait. This isn't some article cashing in on hypothetical fan art of an Xbox turning into Megatron or a post about those awesome Mega Drive/PlayStation Transformers. This is my life, you fools. I've spent time ...more

Escalator Pitch: Nina Freeman argues for perpetual Sailor Moon cosplay

Indie developers make some cool as heck games, but they're not always so great at selling them. We want to them work on their pitch game until they're at Bumgarner levels and we want to take advantage of the the horrible, ho...more

Fan-made Dragon Ball Z fighter still looks amazing

There is perhaps less urgency in the Hyper Dragon Ball Z fan fighter coming to fruition now that Arc System Works (Guilty Gear) is releasing a robust 2D Dragon Ball Z fighter. That does not mean I do not want to play both games, however. Especially because Hyper Dragon Ball Z is still looking excellent, as you can see above. That Gohan speaks to me on an emotional level.more
