I’ve completed MultiEx Commander 4.5 now featuring EasyMod! With EasyMod you can create stand-alone mods of the game you alter. If they are supported using MexScript for importation, this will work. Efforts will continue to define stuff that plugins will need to do to support EasyMod as well. But for now, there’s a number of additional important changes to the program you might be interested in. See the readme.txt. To see what the EasyMod is about, view my first tutorial on YouTube. I will complete more in time, and perhaps the community can create some as well.

EasyMod is the upcoming feature of MultiEx Commander. It can be used to create stand-alone mods like this one: Doom E1M1 Mod for Shadow Warrior. Check the quick-tutorial here at YouTube. MultiEx Commander 4.5 will have the EasyMod feature. Get the EasyMod: EasyMod Doom E1M1 Theme in Shadow Warrior. To use, just unzip into the Shadow Warrior main folder and run EasyMod.exe.
Just a little post to let you know I’ve been working on MultiEx Commander 4.5. I plan to release it in January 2011, hopefully. As a teaser, you can click on the screenshot that will show what it can look like at the moment. Changes? Well, there’s a login screen, EasyMod is implemented with MexScript, there a Script window, that will also allow you to use Aluigi’s QuickBMS to open archives, and some other stuff you’ll find out soon.
The MultiEx Commander project originally started on the DOS platform. First there was the commandline tool multiex.exe in 1997, that used the first version of MexScript to process multiple different game resource archives for extraction and updating. MultiEx Commander (1998-1999) was then build as graphical user interface for users. Hence the name, Commander. The last DOS version was 2.3 in 2001 (the first Windows version was 3.0 in 2001). I’ve uploaded most of the relevant files of the DOS version over at the forum here. There you will find the installation files, source code, screenshots and DOCS. For old-time’s sake! Install DOSBox or similar first and then start the installation when in DOSBox mode. It’s quite fun to relive the beginning!
Yep, a minor update of MultiEx Commander is finally released. The version does away with the WIKI based support, fixes some bugs, implements the new version of Jaeder Naub, implements Ben Moench’s Game Extractor plugin and adds some languages. Get it, and be sure to grab the Game Extractor plugins somewhere. Read the previous post to get them! Go to the MultiEx download page to get the new version.
We are now hosting the official Jaeder Naub website. Jaeder Naub is an advanced media ripping tool that can find and extract a large number of sounds and graphics from any file that harbours them. It is a stand alone tool, and it is also offered in MultiEx Commander as an optional tool to scan and then select which found media to extract where. Keep browsing to http://www.jaedernaub.com for updates!
The first MultiEx Commander language pack is released! It will install all supported languages: Czech, Dutch, English, French, German and Hungarian. If you feel you could do other translations, drop in at the forum here! Get the Language pack herel!
Update: Thanks to Carlos at the forum we also have a Spanish version! It’s in the language pack!
Finally, after more than a year, we release the latest installment of MexCom to the public. As other activities had priority for quite a while, users of MexCom had to wait, but now there’s the new version. And what has it got to offer? I think it best to just show the readme for all to see. If you don’t care and just want to get it, hop on to the download page. Otherwise: (more…)
The current issue of the Belgian PC games magazine PC Gameplay (October 2006) features MexCom! With the new release, 4.3.0, comes the Dutch language as optional language setting for the GUI. PC Gameplay was able to offer it to their Dutch-speaking readers exclusively before the rest of the world on September the 28th. Later today, we’ll release MexCom 4.3.0 to the public. Some quotes of their review of the new version: “MexCom uses a very simple user-interface that enables us to do much with just a few clicks“, “you always have a good overview of what’s going on“, “We were very positive about MexCom ‘s user-friendliness and support by its community“. Want to read the whole feature for yourself? Then rush out and buy the magazine!
