I'm using Plasma Shop now for a couple of years, but I'm afraid I don't know much about what I do with this tool. Is there any kind of documentation about the file structure of PRP files? I can only find source code of tools or the CWE sources on the internet.
Unfortunately, we did have some relatively extensive documentation for PRPs in the early days (around 2004-2005) on the old COBBS forum wiki, but it was all lost during an attack that destroyed much of the server's data. Documenting PRPs is a massive task, as the PRP files are essentially a direct serialization of the game's data structures. It would be nice to have a complete documentation of the game's engine and data structures, but we're short-handed these days. If you or anyone you know is interested in helping out, we welcome such assistance and would be happy to guide anyone and provide answers willing to take this on.
Of course, if you have any specific questions about how to use PlasmaShop (or other tools) or how to accomplish a certain task, feel free to ask!
