Graf, we were talking about executing the batch file by dragging wads onto it, so pause would help somewhat in that case (it would leave the command window open after executing the command).

The reason I didn't use it is because if I remember correctly, cmd.exe's scrollback buffer is only 500 lines or so, not nearly big enough to hold all the messages that get dumped while extracting most wads.

Anyway, I think these kind of operators are good for people to know about when working with any tool that generates command line output. I've definitely piped zdoom through grep to filter out everything but error messages, for instance.

Small update.

MP2E has created a working mingw build script, so windows users can easily build unwad for themselves if they want. See the title post for info on how to check unwad out of the svn. Building it should be a matter of simply running the mingw-build shell script in the "build" directory, so MP2E tells me =)

I should probably add that you don't have to build it if you don't want, pre-built binaries are available (see title post)

I found a bug - when extracting a wad that had lots of textures (TX_START to TX_END), it put all the patch type textures into the graphics folder and converted them to png files correctly, but it put all the png type lumps that were between TX_START and TX_END into the wad's main extraction folder, and gave them the extension .lump.

Also, all sprites that were in PNG format were put into the correct 'sprites' folder, but the extension was changed to .lump.

I noticed that too, but I wasn't going to bother fixing it as it doesn't bother me and I wasn't sure if anyone else was using this thing ;p

I'll take a look, thanks =)

Does the unwad tool keep sprite offsets when it extracts sprites to pngs?

I'm pretty sure it does, but I don't completely remember <_<
