    Icon3 Pack File Manager 2.4.1 - Compatability Features added

    *Mods, please take care to not do anything to change the id of this thread (494248) by merging it into another or whatever; you'd break the PFM's autoupdate which relies on this.



    This Thread is obsolete; the new version 3.x supports Rome 2 but also still Shogun 2.
    Please use that one and direct all support queries to the thread in the Rome II workshop.


    Update 20.10.12: Pack File Manager 2.4.1


    Bugfix release.
    - Fixes the destination folder dialog popping up for every file when no MyMod set


    Here are some Tutorial threads for some of the features:
    MyMods feature
    Compatability features


    The old schema.xml file is obsolete. Also, all new schema definitions will not be usable by old versions.
    Please update your PFM if you're interested in receiving further table definitions update.



    I rehosted download location to Sourceforge to save TWC the bandwidth, and we can upload it together with the installer in one place.
    There is a new autoupdate feature which will automatically update your PFM after it found a new version.
    It will only kick starting next version of course; it worked fine for the test runs I did, if there is any trouble, let me know.


    Feel free to post bugs and request features. I'm pretty sure I can include any function you can think of (especially concerning the DB tables).
    If anyone provides me with structures for new file types, I'll be happy to integrate them.

    A list of possible features that could be implemented are available here.

    Video Introduction of the 1.7 features:
    Feature Introduction Video





    Version 1.7.2, Update 12.11.11
    - Fixed bug that wouldn't let you save PFH3 tables (patch 9/10)
    - Tree view now displays table entries for files with an outdated version with yellow background
    - Added automatic update for outdated table versions

    The automatic update fills new integer fields with 0s and string fields with empty strings.


    Version 1.7.1, Update 11.11.11
    - Fixed a bug that prevented using the DB with the highest version index (unit_stats_land)
    - Tree view now displays table entries for files without the proper version file in red
    - includes table description for most db tables now, only missing names_royalty and stats_clan.


    Version 1.7.0, Update 11.11.11
    As already announced, I started working on the Pack File Manager to get it up to date.
    This now includes the additional data files provided by davidlallen.

    Other changes:
    - PFM will now read all files in the DBFileTypes folder named "DBFileTypes_[num]"
    - provides update option to check for newer distribution of DBFileTypes

    This should mean that it will be easier to add new updates to the DB descriptions and will not require a new version of the PFM itself.

    There is no need to manually download the attachment.


    How to compile PFM In case I go missing:
    Sources available at Sourceforge.

    To compile this, you'll need a c# compiler; you can get Visual C# Express 2010 for free from Microsoft (it's what I use).
    There is an ".sln" ("Solution") file you can open which will contain three projects: Common, Library and PackFileManager.
    If you right-click PackFileManager, there is a "build" option. Compiled stuff will be put into the bin/Release folder.



    Note: If you only want to change the type of your pack file:
    I added a little tool so you can change it after saving.
    You'll have to call it from the command line, like this:
    Code:
    setPackType.exe <packtype> [packfiles]
    Valid <packtype>s are (b)oot, (r)elease, (p)atch, (m)od, mo(v)ie.

    Make sure the files in the parameter list are packfiles; you'll probably break other files.

    Note 2:
    Again, you don't need to manually download the attachments here, the PFM has an automatic update feature to download and install them.

    I made a breakthrough and can now read all databases from ETW/NTW and S2 (for which there is a db definition file of course).
    If there isn't urgent demand for that, I'm not distributing it for the time being and implement some other features I have in mind.

    If you want to try out the automatic update, I put up a new DBFileTypes (avatar_units enabled).
    Hit "Search For Updates" in your PFM to see if it's downloaded.

    Had to issue 1.7.1 as a hotfix, previous version failed to open unit_stats_land due to a bug.

    - Fixed a bug that prevented using the DB with the highest version index (unit_stats_land)
    - Tree view now displays table entries for files without the proper version file in red
    - includes table description for most db tables now, only missing names_royalty and stats_clan.

    Hi! It still has error. When I've changed any value in the patch 10 file, then I can't save it and open it again. Could you test PFM 1.7.1 once more, please! When I use PFM 1.6.7 with davidlallen's DBFileTypes, it has no problem.

    Default Re: PackFileManager 1.7.2

    Okay, found the problem and fixed it, uploaded version 1.7.2.
    - Fixed bug that wouldn't let you save PFH3 tables (patch 9/10)
    - Tree view now displays table entries for files with an outdated version with yellow background
    - Added automatic update for outdated table versions

    The automatic update fills new integer fields with 0s and string fields with empty strings.


    I'm sorry for the bumpy start, but AFAICT most stuff works now.
    I hope the automatic update feature will be useful to keep mods up to date between table structure changes upon arrival of a patch;
    I'm not a modder but would imagine that can be quite a drag.

    If there is anything else that's a common problem during modding, let me know.

    Woah, Major Update, + rep.

    Shame I'm not modding any more, always wanted stuff like this.

    Ultimate challenge could be cntrl-c, cntrl-v . Some players would also probably love it if you could add in functionality for the shogun .unit_variant files.

    There is a copy/paste row, but it doesn't behave as I would expect.
    My version actually copies the rows and creates new rows with the same data in them.
    You think people would want that? Because I totally have that working.

    Or do you mean copy/paste of cells? I'm sure that's possible too. Honestly, I'm pretty sure I can provide any function to the db editor people ask me for.

    Accessing new file types is a different matter which requires analysing the files by going through them with a hex editor rather than writing code.
    If anyone provides me with structures for new file types, I'll be happy to integrate them.

    Some players would also probably love it if you could add in functionality for the shogun .unit_variant files.
    The ones below "variantmodels"?
    If anybody can tell me what they are supposed to do, or how they would be edited... I'm no modder.
    PFM does open them, but they look strange.

    Yes, those.
    Check the ntw ones, they are the same but pfm can read them properly. Taws tools do them, its great for mass changes but not so great for tiny tweaks.

    He means single cells, in the old pfm you have to do all changes for single cells by hand, which can get annoying if you have to do it for several units.

    Btw, is the new PFM compatible with the older games, or will it be limited to S2?

    Excellent engagement, daniu
    (Don't need the S2-PFM atm., but i'll check back when i start modding S2 again).

    I think this version is solely for S2.

    No, this version will work with all previous games. AFAIK, anyway, I don't own any of them. The program code is the same; and the data files are versioned by CA and all the different versions are stored separately in the PFM data files. So PFM will pick up the proper definition for the older versions.

    Hmmm... that would be integrating new (or in this case, changed) file structure... if the new ones work with taw's stuff, it'll be easier, but it's pretty low on my list right now.

    Okay I'll put that in.
    Funnily, the new feature of hiding cells get in the way of this: if a partial row has been selected, and there are hidden rows in the selection, should the values contained in them also get copied and pasted later? I think it's easier to copy them along, so I'll go with that first.

    You'd think that, but it's actually rather confusing. When adapting PFM for S2, the code for the previous header structures seems to have been taken out... you'll get a "unknown db header" message with NTW. I'm sure I can get all files working, but again, this will cause other problems; for instance, the references between table are not the same for all db versions, and neither are the table definitions themselves. Even if I re-enable NTW packs, I'll have to take care not to update the contained db tables to a version that was only introduced in S2.

    However, getting PFM to work on all Warscape games is the most worthwhile long term endeavor in my eyes. I'll definitely be getting into that.

    That is too bad. I had not looked into the program code of PFM, but it would have been nice if both the old and new header formats could have been supported.

    but again, this will cause other problems; for instance, the references between table are not the same for all db versions, and neither are the table definitions themselves. Even if I re-enable NTW packs, I'll have to take care not to update the contained db tables to a version that was only introduced in S2.
    I am pretty sure that is not an issue. The header for each file contains the version number. And PFM can definitely deal with multiple version numbers for the same file. For example, unit_stats_land is defined for six different version numbers, in different db file type files. So assuming the headers can be read, dealing with different table versions is already supported and the data is all there.
