This is a replacement of my old MPQ Workshop.
I rewrote whole codes, and wrote a new mpqlib which was half copied from zezula's StormLib(most of compact(flush)/compression part) and half coded by myself. Now it is combined into Master series, ;)
I think that it is the fastest and smallest MPQ GUI software in the world.

My test:
it costs only less than 3 seconds on opening war3.mpq on my Centrino I 1.0G mobile CPU, which is compared to other softwares:
MPQ Workshop: 6 sec
Power MPQ, MPQ Editor, WinMPQ: more than 20 sec

Size of files:
MPQMaster.exe 136KB(63KB after upxing)
MpqLib.dll 121KB(59KB after upxing)
No extra runtime files needed

I added all known listfiles in the package.

2/28/2004 1.2.0 build 36 update:
Quote:
2004-03-19 v1.2.0 build 36
==========================
[+] Added some toolbar buttons and changed toolbar icons
[+] Added Russian language file (authored by Stinger)
[!] Updated TFT listfile to only list TFT files
[!] Fixed Language switch bug
[!] Fixed bugs in compact/flush function(MpqLib.dll)
[!] Fixed menu view style selection

Notice that please remove your Listfiles folder of current version before upgrade overwrite as I changed/merged some listfiles

Just out of curiousity, can you provide a programming interface or even the source code for your library?

Nice program, works fast for me and looks polished.

UPX? What image compressor is that? And what size is the program before you compress it?

original size: 121KB
I compiled it with BCC 5.6.4 (when using VC, the lib might crash on extracting mass files, although VC's link binary's only 112KB), but did not remove the _CPPDebugHook function entry, :)

Good. However there is a problem. It seems like all mpq programs have this bug:
When I delete war3map.j the map still has the same size..?

ctb, this behavior is simple to understand. Whenever you delete a file from the MPQ it isn´t deleted, only it´s entry on the control tables are set to an "empty state". To actually delete a file from the MPQ you need to delete it and after that you gotta "flush" the MPQ. WinMPQ and MPQ Worshop can both flush the MPQ.

Probably it's the best thing not to keep version numbers in the thread title. I'd suggest to keep only the name of the program in the thread title. This way, you will never have problems when updating the program.

It is also great at handling/extracting/creating big files, something at which ladik's sucks ...

Turns your simple code into something that is complicated enough to work.
Faster != more useful
