About This File

Hi guys,

I made a new version of PackMyGame, based on wpf/.net Core 3.1 instead of  forms/.net framework ... 

1) What's new

    This new version bears the possibility to unpack games, extract platforms to reinject later, don't have paths into the xml extracted, check links validity, md5 file calculation. Unpack need a new file, generated by PackMyGame, 'DPGame.json', but you can generate a new:

  • By pack if you have always your game into LaunchBox.
  • By the old xml files (TBGame, EBGame) with Unpack.

This DPGame.json file allows also to change, place default files... except for Additionnal Application and the main, there is a lot of modification with LaunchBox, i prefere that the user changes it into LaunchBox.
Both are now portable, new config file is created at the root. Both use relative links for LaunchBoxPath and the working folder... You could let it on an external hard drive.

Read the wiki to discover all the other things that changed since the last version.

2) Description

    PackMyGame allow to pack your games into folders, zip or 7zip archives. If you need to keep a backup of them, even more if you translated descriptions of your games, you could keep it in a sure place with this application.

   It's available in English and French, PackMyGame use now a xml file to translate, you could easy make your own translation, put it in the Languages folder, it will be recognize

3) Version


4) Links

    Because there is a lot of modifications, bugfixes since the last version i made a wiki on my github, i will try to let the best explanations on it. 

    Don't hesitate to signal any bug, there is a log system, it will help to improve the application (if you are french, write to me in french ^^)

5) Some words...

  • I tested a lot Pack and Unpack, 3 months for pack and 1 month since i changed all the core for Unpack. I tried to place some securities to avoid bad manipulations, but it still to be a beta there is probably some (minor i hope) bugs to remove.
  • I'm sick, this why sometimes i can't make update, i will not die but i have a genetical dicease that make my days very difficult during months. This is why i couldn't make any update during months, i couldn't understand my own code because i was to tired. I apologize for that.
  • Pack  and Unpack use a common library i wrote, the same used in SappPasRoot... Step by step i will accelerate and reduce verbose, and put a parameter in config file to change the verbose mode for the user.
  • You need the 7z NATIVE dll to use 7z compression, it must be copie in x86 or x64 folder according of your version.
