RE: XZP/XUR/XUI app for skinners
I'm glad to hear it Icon_cheesygrin

Pics for install/app can be changed. Same goes with the texts shown or the apps name. Functions can also be added.

So far it is for start skinning. But there is already code written to convert all xui files back to xur (xui2bin.exe) and to pack everything into a xzp file (xuipkg). Would that be useful?

Another idea would be a report containing a comparison of a skin directory and the newest Default.xzp.

Whatever makes a skinners life easier, once all XUI files are imported there are a lot of options. Primarly I'll work on the translation part, but some functions can be shared.

Thanks for the upload function.

RE: XZP/XUR/XUI app for skinners
Yes those features would be awesome.
If this could basically be a one tool does all for packing and unpacking skins, converting fonts and translating and especially if it can compare files and find new files or files with changes that would help us know which files are changed in new FSD releases.

great job again and as deak said thanks for the site props you put in the program Icon_smile

RE: XZP/XUR/XUI app for skinners
Some progress

XUI 2 XUR is already done, but not implemented in spiffy form,
because I spent the last 2 days looking for a user-friendly ftp solution. And finally found a way to do it Icon_cheesygrin

Language files will so be available in a ftp site and the language database can be easily updated through internal ftp client.

And for skinners..
I guess most of us update FSD through Fsd updater. So the ftp client will be adapted to

a) be able to get Default.xzp directly from the xbox through ftp and start import/conversion
b) convert xui to xur and upload the resulting xzp file or directory to xbox

Uploading/downloading already works. The problem is uploading directories. Each directory must be created first. So that will take more time to figure out - on wait now.

Anyway, XUI2XUR with optional XZP file will be available shortly.
Just need to adapt the way the function is called. I'll do it next, as it is a practical function.

About file comparison. Finding new files should be easy to achieve (directory or xzp file). Should the app just look for new xui files or all files in default.xzp?

directory version
dir /S /B > file.txt and import file of both directories into app and then compare.

xzp file version
xuipkg /V file.xzp > file.txt import both files and compare

Changes... I guess a 3rd party command line app will be needed.
A complete report would be easier to handle as a report after each file. The question is, what should be known? If a file has changes or which changes they are?

Basically files with same length shouldnt have changes. That could also be done easily with filelen(myfile) and compare results.
