Default EQ Spell/Item Icon Extractor to PNGs

Huh. I didn't realize Shin Noir had recently posted a Python script for extracting item icons to .gifs until I came to post this, but it's kinda cool that two people were working on similar things.

I put together a .Net 2.0 C# app to extract the spell icons and item icons from the EQ client's uifiles/default .dds and .tga files, creating .png images of each icon.

It has no dependencies. It's entirely self-contained. Just run it, point it to your input and output directories, and watch the progress bars fill up. Takes less than a minute.

Github Link:



Figures in the screenshot are from a slightly older client. Current icon counts for the TDS client are:

Spell Icons: 252 (the last 35 of which are unused)
Item Icons: 7848 (the last 224 of which are unused)

You'll have to check out the source code from GitHub and compile it with VS.

I pointed this to my uifiles/default and it extracted 252 spell icons and 0 item icons. Any idea why?
