Simple Monopoly GCF Extractor

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008 by Zench

TikGames' Monopoly LogoZench created a simple extractor for the GCF format used by TikGames’ Monopoly. Currently the extractor is command line only; a MexCom plugin to extract and repack the format is planned for the future, if support is desired. Usage should be self-explanatory, but if not, ask at the forum. The discussion can be found here, and the tool can be downloaded at this URL.

ClipMon 1.1 – Screenshot grabber

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008 by Mr.Mouse

ClipMon 1.1This tool is quite old (2003) and basic, but it does the job surprisingly well. ClipMon is a simple Windows tool that will allow you to make screenshots and store them where you want them. I wrote it as some games I wanted to show to other people did not allow screenshots to be made. Just start the tool, set the folder you wish to store the .jpg files in, and click “start monitoring”.

Merge Game Extractor with MultiEx Commander!

Saturday, October 11th, 2008 by Mr.Mouse

MexCom pluginZench had the fabulous idea of creating a plugin for MultiEx Commander that will allow you to use all Game Extractor formats as well! Game Extractor is written in Java, and in the main .JAR file you will find a lot of Plugin_xxx.class files. You can copy these to Game Extractor’s plugin directory using any good archiver, such as WinRAR. So, you do the following: (more…)
