Yep.sir.cr ! The Xentax Game Archive Format Wiki is back up after only 14 hours downtime, thanks to our lovely host who had to run some scripts by our request. We have now installed Mediawiki 1.6. So, time for some hardcore BMS tagging.
Archive for May, 2006
Indeed it has! We have done away with the old frontpage and replaced it with this excellent blogsystem! Any news, code, info, BMS scripts, tools, music and the like, it will all be found right here from now on! In due time Captain will redo the layout to make it look even better. Now, make yourself a nice cup of coffee, sit back and browse our news archives to see history unfold! It will bring a smile to your face, brighten your cloudy day and make you feel good about the world! Honest.
We are currently working on an update of the Xentax Game Resoure Archive WIKI code. So, during this time the site is down. We have to discuss these matters with our host, and hope to be up and running soon once again. The reason for this update is A. to have the latest Mediawiki code and B. to be able to tag MultiEx Scripts in the future so MexCom can use scripts people post at the WIKI as well. More on that later.
By request I created a Binary MultiEx Script for MexCom so a user could open a certain caw.bin file.
Here´s the script in uncompiled form:
Set Size Long 2532 ;
GoTo EOF 0 ;
SavePos ASI 0 ;
GoTo SOF 0 ;
SavePos FO 0 ;
Set FN String .DCOM ;
Get F String 0 ;
String F += FN ;
Log F FO Size 0 0 ;
Math FO += Size ;
GoTo FO 0 ;
While FO < ASI ;
And here it is in BMS: bin.bms
TRE Archiver is a tool that will open Star Wars Galaxies .TRE files.
View the original request (2003) at the forum here:
This resulted in the TRE VB Class:
And ultimately in the GUI called TRE archiver:

Again a tool by Mr.Mouse that will convert picture/texture files from PlayBoy: The Mansion to and from bitmaps (BMP).
See the original request at the forum here:
Snippet from the readme.txt:
“I only used one actual PICT file to figure out the format.
So, if some PICT files don´t work, visit the MultiEx Commander forum.
This MultiEx Commander plugin can open *.JA files from the Train Driver 2005 game.
The original request at the forum can be found here:
Create a JA folder in the MexCom ´plugins´ folder and copy the DLL there. Start MexCom.
Get it here:Train Driver 2005 .JA plugin
It can be used as a standalone tool (just fire it up), but you can also use it commandline driven.
