Mega File Editor released

Posted by Mike on July 21st, 2011

It's been a while since my last update, so let me use this opportunity to announce the release of my Mega File Editor. Not only does it support EaW and UaW, but it also supports Petroglyph's latest games, Guardians of Graxia and Rise of Immortals. On that note, I've updated the games page to add them.

Move to Petrolution

Posted by Mike on January 19th, 2009

As you may have noticed, this site is now hosted at Petrolution. With the unfortunate closing of Petro-Gamers, my site is now hosted here, thanks to the kind folks of Petrolution and Revora. Be sure to update your bookmarks!

Site move and tools updated!

Posted by Mike on June 9th, 2008

After many months of working, my tools have been updated. Firstly, as you may have noticed, I have moved my site over to Petro-Gamers for better reliability, bandwidth and style. Secondly, for our friendly german friends, all tools are now also available in german, thanks to translator Raziel Kanos. Lastly, the Alo Viewer got a major overhaul so check it out! It's compatible with Universe at War, has mod support and many, many other new features.

Alamo Object Viewer update

Posted by Mike on March 15th, 2006

Due to some people having problems setting the Empire at War directory, I've slightly adjusted my Alamo Object Viewer so it is now more "intelligent" in finding the directory. There should be less problems starting it now.

Alamo Object file format
