Hello guys, it's been a while when I've been here.
I didn't have much time to program in past months, but lately it changed. And I wrote something.
First one is next release of my FF8: Archive Commander (a.k.a FF8AC). This release can extract single/many/all files from game archives, replace single and now replace many/all files in archive. You can choose either to (un)compress files you extract/replace or not. It's been heavily tested and it's doing it good. Please write some feedback, so I can make it even better.
Second one is brand new program I called Omega: a TEX file converter. It can convert any 8-bit (I didn't even try to handle 16-bit files because some programs can do it, e.g. Texture Beast) FF8 TEX file to BMP, while you can choose palette (if TEX file has more than one). This one requires only TEX file. Finally, it can convert BMP file to TEX, preserving transparencies and palettes, and it's using original TEX file and modified BMP file. Note that BMP file structure must be exactly as it was when program extracted it. Photoshop is bad, Paint is good
. Again, please send me some feedback and tell what do you think about it.
Disclamer: Even so I tested theese programs heavily, I *DO NOT* guarantee that they will work *PERFECTLY*, so make backups of everything you change!
