Title: MPA updated to v2.0.1!

New version is out! You'll be surprised by it's speed (especially when working with huge mappacks)

I don't have WinRAR.. And I don't have admin on this computer.. T_T

Looks great though.


Edit: Please, someone, re-save it into .ZIP!!! Please!!
Title: Re: Maps/Prefabs Archiver v2.0.1 (~Mappack maker)
Post by: VirtualTT on December 23, 2006, 01:47:07 pm
This programm requires WinRAR to work (actually it's WinRAR that is packing).
WinRAR provides best possible compression. So here some vivid results for MNP mappack:
1. 4692 kb - WinRAR 3.62 solid .rar archive with maximum compression
2. 5083 kb - WinRAR 3.62 simple .rar archive with maximum compression
3. 5402 kb - WinRAR 3.62 simple .zip archive with maximum compression
4. 5593 kb - WinZIP 11.0 (7313) simple .zip with maximum compression

So I just can suggest to install WinRAR (or ask admin to do this).

Post by: dasilverguy on December 24, 2006, 12:37:54 am
And if you re-compress it into .ZIP, it won't work?

No, admin is in another country and won't tell me the password the admin user.

Post by: BombSki on December 25, 2006, 08:01:50 am
the program uses winrar to pack the files man, its not only needed to unpack the program itself.

without winrar you cant use this program
Title: Re: Maps/Prefabs Archiver v2.0.1 (~Mappack maker)
Post by: dasilverguy on December 26, 2006, 08:36:34 am
Oh.. Even when compressing it into .zip?
Title: Re: Maps/Prefabs Archiver v2.0.1 (~Mappack maker)
Post by: BombSki on December 26, 2006, 08:54:37 am
yes, the program uses winrar to make .zip and .rar archives, as i said: without winrar this wont work

Title: MPA v2.0.6 - soldat 1.4 Ready!
Post by: VirtualTT on May 06, 2007, 11:02:34 am
New version is out!
Added command line interface and search function. MPA now detects even more map imperfections. Big help file contains a lot of usefull information about installing/using of MPA, command line syntax and map warnings handling...
Now i'm thinking about making MPA article on soldat wiki.

to Avarax: it's anti-lag bridge for tw_Cannibals, remember?

Date Posted: 12-02-2007, 22:18:18
New version includes small but critical bugfix...
I really don't want to act like microsoft with updats every week, but... ::)

Date Posted: 19-02-2007, 03:00:34
MPA now can work with Soldat 1.4!

I'm working on the new, fully rewritten version of MPA.
new features already implemented: Gif support, info tooltips, variables like %info% %date% %properties% for archive comments, search for Archive content list and ability to pack uncompiled maps

if you have any ideas/suggestions for MPA please post them

Ah nice, just wanted to download the old one because it keeps spitting out "3"? when i try to zip/rar a map. I don't have any suggestions really. I liked the older version already.
Title: Re: Maps/Prefabs Archiver v2.0.7 (with source code)
Post by: VirtualTT on June 25, 2009, 02:04:07 pm
It seems that problem was caused by incorrect WinRAR path.

Ok. here is new version. Tested on #soldat.mapping and proved to be working correctly.  ;D
Dunno what was wrong with 3.0.6...
Also i released the source code (C++). Compiling it might be tricky however.
See first post for download links.

I can't use it on Win7, I've tried several different compatibility modes, but it only presents me with this error: (http://i.imgur.com/cBe2s.jpg)

What should I do? :'(
Title: Re: Maps&Prefabs Archiver v3.1.2 (with source)
Post by: VirtualTT on August 10, 2012, 01:41:26 am
The first crash report in 6 years...

Well, Soldat MPA suppose to work fine on Windows 7 even without any compatibility modes. So my suggestions are:
1) Make sure that MPA executable is not corrupted (try redownloading it)
2) Make sure that you are running version compatible with your system (64-bit version would obviously not work on 32-bit system)
