He is. Trust me ;) (endarion here, Ladik^^)

I took ideas from bsdiff source, plus help from people from the MPQ community, as they already figured out how to interpret Blizzard version of BSDIFF. You will see it soon in the next BETA of StormLib anyway.

That's great news, thank you Ladik!

Bunch of people who ever e-mailed me that they need something, or that there is a new MPQ format that I can't handle :-). There is no forum or an official website, most probably the guys don't even know each other. They all know my MPQ tools so they write me frm time to time.

Hopefully tomorrow (19.08.2010). I'll post here when at least experimental version is ready.

Link it;) Btw not a word from Ladik....makes me sad :(

Vlad 08-19-10 09:36 AM

No point in worrying nor stressing him, he will release his tool when he feels it is stable enough for a public alpha/beta release. ;)

Quokka 08-19-10 09:41 AM

Ladik can your tool be used to extract the latest .blp files from the mpq?
or is it only lua & xml?

Vlad 08-19-10 09:47 AM

It will support any kind of files in the MPQ, don't worry.

Quokka 08-19-10 10:39 AM

Vladinator thanx for the heads-up m8

Ladik 08-19-10 02:49 PM

Ok, seeing how eager you all are :p, I made experimental version of MPQ Editor that supports opening multiple MPQs in patch mode. You can download it here:
removed
This link will only be valid for a few days, I'll remove it as soon as I get something more tested. Do not use it for anything else that extracting a file from patched MPQ.

Good news: Each step of the patching process is verified by MD5, both before patching and after patching. So once you manage to extract something without an error message, you can be sure that it's correct.
Bad news: I hadn't much time to test it yet. This build is by no means finished.

Usage: Best by command line, like this:
MPQEditor.exe /patch "locale-enUS.MPQ" "wow-update-12694.MPQ" "wow-update-12759.MPQ"

In case you are unable to extract a patched file, please, send me an e-mail to zezula-at-volny-dot-cz. Please, don't forget to include:
- The name of the primary MPQ
- List of patches you entered
- Full name of the extracted file

More tomorrow, it's late here and I'll go something more relaxing for rest of the (already ending) day.
