not chaos bleeds, the other one.. both it and indy are made using the slayer engine, same binds, vars.cfg, etc..only difference is buffy has all the levels/textures/etc packed into .pak files that the xbox extracts as levels are loaded (to save ram/HD space I assume) once unpacked it would be a simple matter of file replacement (maybe renaming some of the buffy files, to make the game work on the PC slayer engine Indy uses

xbox version of indy is the same way..pak files

gonna be a lot of work... the files don't extract as multitextures.... each pak also apparently has ALL the textures, all the txt files, all the wav files, etc...
all the sound files will have to be converted cause currently they are in an unknown format( 69 which seems to be voxware) I found a website I can convert them to mp3(verified it works), then just have to convert them back to wav

getting some progress...there is an old bms script to extract the mtx files for PC indiana jones and it's counterpart an mtx packer(they will work with the xbox version as well)... have found out all the files the BUFFY bms script dumped that are labeled MTX are actually dds files, the header is just wrong... so I can take all those files, and with time, get them converted and eventually repacked into the properly named mtx multitex files format
below is a sample of the work...
https://www.dropbox.com/s/uk9ks5ghxao7szy/1%20sri%20lanka.rar?dl=0
it's an mtx file from xbox version of indy dumped from bms script, the mtx with the new header making it a .dds file (texture image) and the equivalent PC version texture (Showing resolution differences)
conversion work done by me through trial and error figuring out the header format for dds

quick update, working on a script to make the mtx files from the extracted textures from Buffy, have the multitex (mtx header) completely figured out now!! after that gotta convert any xbox adpcm wave audio to regular wav, then it should just be a matter of pluging in the files... turns out the exe doesn't care, there is a missionslist txt listing the missions (levels and their file number m0, m1, etx...) and the game has it;s own MBF file ,indy has indy.mb, it has buffy.MBF and they are identical (did a file compare in the hex editor) so the full engine is identical...

alrighty... dropped the bms script in favor of python scripting (took a few hours in python while I worked days on the bms script)

so anyone that has the old buffy the vampire slayer XBOX game (not chaos bleeds) and wants to give it a shot, here is the mtx file creator in exe form. You can get a pak file ripper over @ zenhax (made by Aluigi) that ripps allt eh files out of the game.. then you simply take the mtx texture files it extracts and use my program to create indy compatible mtx multitex texture files

removing link for now, found a huge bug that causes texture data to not get written back out /read from mtx)
