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.

XeNTaX WIKI maintenance

Sunday, May 28th, 2006 by Mr.Mouse

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.

WWE 2 RAW script for CAW.BIN

Monday, May 1st, 2006 by Mr.Mouse

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 ;
Do ;
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
