lgc-pg(1) Converter Tool for original Panzer General® Data Files


lgc-pg [-s SOURCE] [-d DEST] [--defpal] [--custom] [-n NAME] [-i ID] [-t TACICONS]


LGC-PG is a simple tool to convert the original Panzer General® Data into LGeneral Data Files. It requires a graphical desktop environment for the conversion.


You always need to specify the source directory (which contains the original data or a custom scenario).
This specifies the destination path that contains the LGeneral data struct. (usually /usr/share/games/lgeneral)
This one is optional and forces all PG graphics to use the default palette. Usually you won't need this but if a custom scenario you converted offers some strange graphics it might be due to a corrupted palette and the default one may provide better results.
If you convert a custom scenario you should add this and the following options.
This is the scenario's file name and default title.
-i <ID>
This is the <ID> in the source file name (game<ID>.scn). If you do not specify an ID the default is O.
If custom tactical icons are involved (scenario offers a TACICONS.SHP)this is the name of the graphical file. If this option is not provided it defaults to <NAME>.bmp.


1) Converts all data from CD-ROM
lgc-pg -s /mnt/windows/DAT -d /usr/share/games/lgeneral
2) Converts a custom scenario
lgc-pg -s /home/jones/newstuff/dunk -d /usr/share/games/lgeneral --custom -n Dunkirk -i 44
