Ok gang...

Thanks for all the nice emails and such....

I have prepared an update to my program that now allows you to:

1. edit the files without extracting them 2. preview DDS and TGAs inline. 3. import existing folder structures. 4. minimize to systray option (that one was for Springsteen!) 5. perhaps other stuff I cant remember

Caviat: The release is beta and does not include my RFA compression code. PLEASE REMEMBER TO INSTALL MY 1.0 VERSION FIRST. A complete installer for 1.2 will be released shortly, until then, manually update the stuff.

The truth be told... I've held off on finishing my compression code to see what Dice has in store with their MDK. Also, I've almost got previewing Standard Mesh files completed... I got it to work... sort of... needs tweaking, but you will be able to see a mesh built on the screen realtime, zoom, pan, rotate... cool.

I WILL create an installer for my 1.2 release, but until then, here is a link to the files which you can add to your existing install (a.k.a. a poor man's patch kit! whaddya want? Not like I'm gettn paid ova' here).

Link to original 1.0 install: http://www.cruachan.net/bf1942/setup_rfa_ex.zip

Link to 1.2 update files (you patch): http://www.cruachan.net/bf1942/rfax_1_2b.zip

Link to FAQ (for version 1.0): http://www.cruachan.net/bf1942/rfa_ex_faq.htm

Register for early release and news on my software: http://www.cruachan.net/bf1942/register

So friends, lets see what the MDK has in store... if they "put out", perhaps their tools will be better... if not... then thanks for being patient for version 2.0

Thanks again everyone for the kind words... I'll get my 2.0 version out... but like I said.. I'm thinking of waiting to see what Dice is going to do with the MDK.

Good luck everyone... keep it fun.

Sup. I know this is an old thread, but i was wondering whatever happened to the 2.0 version. I got the 1.2 Beta but i still cant edit the con files without extracting them (or maybe i dont know how to). If anyone has any info on this, please let me know here or by e-mail [email]zim_racing@yahoo.com[/email] I went to the website but all they had was the 1.2.

Thanks in advance

Hi, I think this is an excellent program for mappers, just one thing though I am wondering if any future release will not require such a rediculous amount of memory. I am always getting this:
