Import entitys from other games, Kings field?

I just downloaded the sword of moonlight, Kingsfield story editor. kings field was a game made in the 1990s and made by from software, the editor comes with textures, models, sounds and stuff like that. The editor can be downloaded here: http://swordofmoonlight.com/

The graphics are obviously dated, but still they have a strong look to them and combined with a good art design, some ambient lighting and particle effects like myst and fog, some cool environments can come to result. I'm sure.

So my question, Is there a way to convert these files into the editors for the dark descent?

There are also some enemy animations and models in here aswell, perhaps that could be of some use?

Hahha wow... OLD ... early 90's, by the looks of it, it looks possible to import them, try looking at the tools, there MIGHT be an import function to import stuff into an editor, if you can, the rest is easy.

ok, on the tools there is a 3D program

it should.... be able to import and then you can export to 3ds for 3ds max/maya

Haha yeah. I still like the look tho, idk why.

Ill take a look at the tools but I was never very good with this type of stuff. I haven't even been able to get the thing installed, I mean, I installed it but I cant figure out where to launch it..

Lol, by the looks of it, it might be a dos program, so you may need "dosBox" I think thats what its called... I don't think it will work on vista/7 though

honestly, I dont think its worth the trouble, i'd rather us that game for references and making al new stuff

I cant model but unless someone would be willing to make a pack of objects to this kind of visual style. gray trees, wells, broken steps with moss and vines and alot of medieval type walls and stuff like that. They wouldn't even have to look to detailed. Otherwise Id rather to try to get these things converted somehow.
