Description

This file contains the four Starcraft Mod Tools used in this tutorial. These files include: Arsenal III by King Arthur For the beginner or advanced custom designer, arsenal III is essential. Arsenal III edits StarCraft's primary data files, also known as DAT files. DAT files control all of the basic stats, such as units health, weapon damage, and build times, as well as some of the more complicated stats such as whether a weapon homes in on its enemy, or whether a unit will cloak nearby units like the arbiter does. You'll need this program in almost every custom you make. MPQDraft 1.01 by Quantam This program is so essential to modding that you're not a custom maker if you don't have a copy of this program. MPQDraft will temporarily apply a custom created in the MPQ format to one session of StarCraft. It also lets you create your own standalone EXE that will let non-custom makers run your mod just by double clicking on your EXE. WinMPQ 1.62 by ShadowFlare Creates, adds,...

For the beginner or advanced custom designer, arsenal III is essential. Arsenal III edits StarCraft's primary data files, also known as DAT files. DAT files control all of the basic stats, such as units health, weapon damage, and build times, as well as some of the more complicated stats such as whether a weapon homes in on its enemy, or whether a unit will cloak nearby units like the arbiter does.

MPQDraft 1.01 by Quantam
This program is so essential to modding that you're not a custom maker if you don't have a copy of this program. MPQDraft will temporarily apply a custom created in the MPQ format to one session of StarCraft. It also lets you create your own standalone EXE that will let non-custom makers run your mod just by double clicking on your EXE.

WinMPQ 1.62 by ShadowFlare
Creates, adds, views, extracts and updates files from MPQs. It also provides more options for power users, such as which compression algorithm to use, how much compression to apply, as well as flushing an MPQ and maintaining listfiles. Best of all, this is all done using a graphical interface. No other MPQ archiver compares. If WinMPQ doesn't start, try going to ShadowFlare's page and install the required runtime files for WinMPQ. If you are going to be looking at StarCraft's official MPQ quite a lot, you should also get UED77's listfile to resolve the names of the files WinMPQ does not recognise.

MPQ Compactor by BSTRhino
This program is designed to save you time when making your MPQ customs. Take a folder, drag and drop it onto this program, and within a few seconds the MPQ Compactor will have finished compiling all the contents of that folder into an MPQ for you. It will even run MPQDraft and execute your patch if you have MPQDraft.exe in the same folder. With this program, making customs is effortless.

Requires WinMPQ and Windows Script Host 5.6. To download this, choose the operating system you use: Windows 98, NT 4.0 and ME or Windows 2000 and XP.

Make sure you have run WinMPQ at least once before using the MPQ Compactor. WinMPQ registers itself on its first run and this is necessary for the successful operation of the MPQ Compactor.

Get MSCOMCTL.OCX here >> majorgeeks.com/faqshow.php?id=8 This page has the file and tells you where to put it. It worked for me but of course I take no responsibility if you get a virus or something from it. Also VERY IMPORTANT YOU MAY NEED TO RUN IN ADMINISTRATOR MODE.

Hola, tengo un problema a la hora de compilar el archivo a formato MPQ, por algún motivo me sale un error y dice que no encuentra el archivo MPQCompactor, quisiera saber cual es el problema, uso windows 7, y tengo STARCRAFT con su expansión originales, entonces cual es el problema para compilar, o que requiero para que funcione el programa, gracias

He hecho todo lo que dicen las instrucciones pero no logro hacerlo funcionar.

Hello, I have a problem when compiling the MPQ file format, for some reason I get an error and says it can not find the MPQCompactor, I wonder what the problem is, i use Windows 7, and I have an original STARCRAFT and its expansion, then ¿what is the problem to compile?, or required file to operate the program, thanks

I've done everything the instructions say but I can not make it work.

Sorry for my bad english.

I went into winMPQ and opened up patch_rt.MPQ to find the arr/units.dat. All that appears is a long list of things all entitled ~unknowns\unknown_ followes by a long number.
