New extraction program?
I have been working through Stargus and have been finding that there are files that are not being extracted (such as video) due to certain features not being available. While the same function I need is in the Wargus extraction tool. Which lead me to thinking that maybe we should think able about making a all-in-one tool game media extraction tool for multiple games. We could use Lua scripts (or specialized config) where developers can setup the specifics for their specific filesystem information. (Filepaths and Types) I was also thinking we should pack the files into a compressed archive (as a holder) with a ".stratagus" extension or the like so individual files have less a chance of getting mucked up or otherwise.
++One tool for all games
++Functions that are commonly used will follow the same revision (MPQs, Smacker->Theora Conversion, pcx->png)
++Easier porting to different platforms
--Maybe more difficult to tailor a specific game if implemented wrong (Map/Campaign Conversion)
What do you think? Corrections + Critiques?
