About This File

Hello everyone this is my GRF Explorer tool,

So why another GRF Tool you ask? well here are the reasons

  • The current ones are old
  • The current ones are un-maintained (not all of them)
  • The current ones are written in C X_X;
  • I want to make my own biggrin.png

So what are the features gonna be?

  • GRF Merge
  • Fast GRF Filter and Search
  • Open Multiple GRFs in another tab
  • Transfer files between tabs
  • Live preview of files in the grf ( even sprite , map , acts ) :D
  • On the spot editing of grf files biggrin.png (no need to extract, edit , put it back, just double click edit and save tongue.png)
  • Open sourced biggrin.png
  • Well documented
  • Its C#! So faster development speed( I made the UI 2 hours ago ) tongue.png
  • It works on Linux , Mac and Windows

Notes: It only supports 0x200 GRF version and the DES Decryption algorithm is still broken ( that means its not able to extract some files in data.grf yet , coming soon)

Ok let me tell you the truth! This is a part of an effort called "Managed Athena Project or mAthena"

the goal is to port the existing eAthena software and the Open-Ragnarok

https://gitorious.org/open-ragnarok/ into managed C#/.NET/Mono Code

This is just the beginning , I am not expecting to do this by myself. That is the reason I am posting this. To let everyone know about the project. And if your a skilled but totally bored programmer and want to build your own stuff for RO. then this is our chance

I honestly dont think it will replace our beloved eAthena project, but this will be an alternative and hopefully a competition for eA in the future
