Anyway - new build of MPQ Editor is up, and the new UI for opening MPQs is implemented. I will see how handy it will be. Also, the option for ignoring path in MPQ was added to the extract dialog.

Sweet! I like.
Patched mode seems.. odd though, now. If i open all mpqs in my Data/ folder in patch mode for example, it says the opened MPQ is "wow-update-12694.MPQ (patched)"

Edit: Ah, the dialog didn't re-sort the MPQs after selecting different open mode. The order in the dialog deserves re-thinking too. I quick-fixed it for now.

Edit2: Ok, I changed the sorting order, so that now it always tries to sort it

1) base MPQs first (locale-enGB.MPQ)
2) older patches next (wow-update-12694.MPQ)
3) newer patches last (wow-update-12759.MPQ)

Also for merged mode, it now orders MPQs by date, so the desired order is:

common.MPQ
expansion.MPQ (considered patch of "common.MPQ")
lichking.MPQ (considered patch of "expansion.MPQ")

In short, MPQ Editor always suggests proper ordering of the MPQs. Perhaps not 100%, but should work for most of the cases.

Actually that shouldn't be a problem. common/expansion/lichking rarely (if ever?) have collisions as the latter ones are split off common to avoid having expansion-less players with a huge amount of data to download/install.

IIRC, merged mode was useful for the old (currently live) way of handling patches: patch-1.mpq, patch-2.mpq, so on.

Understandable, but it ain't a rule. You said Ladik should follow the rules, what he did.

Perhaps you might want to look here? /forums/editpost.php?do=editpost&p=684

No need to create a drama just because of this :-)
I have my webpage in my profile, and it's not actually hard to find downloads there. Just let it be - rules are set, I am not gonna mess with them :-)

Well, after some more reading. Most of my theorys were correct to an extent. Heh.
http://www.zezula.net/en/mpq/main.html Has a MPQ reader that can properly handle the patch files and all that jazz. (it even reads SC2 encrypted mpqs :) )
