PostPosted: Sat Jan 31, 2004 1:28 pm   Post subject: [source] PackFile

A simplification from some of my C++ Code
A collection of functions to make a packfile (i.e. a file containing a bunch of other files)
There is no compression, but it could be useful for distributing a large number of files

Because of turing's slowness dont try to use this with files>1mb

note: I would release the cpp version but it uses a bunch of other classes and files that i wrote

How to Use::

Call AddToPackFile(filename) for all the files you want in the packfile

code:

AddToPackFile(this.jpg)
AddToPackFile(that.jpg)
AddToPackFile(now.jpg)


After youve done that Call CreatePackFile (outputTo) with the parameter being the filename of the packfile its gonna make

code:

CreatePackFile (test.pack)


To Extract a file from a pack file:
GetFile (whichPack,whichFileInPack,whereToOutputIt)
code:

GetFile (test.pack,this.jpg,newthis.jpg)

Now we can squeeze image files all into 1 big file Very Happy I always hated how when you run a game with turing that requires so many images, and the images are all clustered in a folder.

No idea how to use it, but i get the gist of how it works. You have to add some lines at the bottom, i just dont know what to put after em Smile

you gotta put '
CreatePackFile (name here)
GetFile ?? maybe
GetFileSize ?? maybe

lol, but nice work, Very Happy
