Disarm v1.06

Submitted by Retera
This bundle is marked as awaiting update. A staff member has requested changes to it before it can be approved.
Written by me (Retera) to help people who want to have a weaponless model, but don't want to bother requesting for people to make it.

Opens a model using a basic Choose Unit or Choose Model interface built to match the World Editor almost identically, then removes the weapon of the model after asking the user a few basic questions about model structure.

Contains some extra features in "Edit" such as the ability to add weapons back in from other models, but that take a little bit of extra clicking to use.

This upload is the new 2016 version (Disarm v1.05) which now uses updated libraries that should fix a lot of the old UnsatisfiedLinkErrors and issues opening Warcraft archives:
- Uses the Java MPQ library from Dr Super Good
- Uses the Java MDX library from oger-lord
- Uses the Java BLP libraries also from oger-lord's repo
- Uses the LWJGL Java graphics library

This version only runs on Windows but it would not be very hard to port the code to other systems now that it is almost entirely pure-Java if somebody wanted a ported version.

If you want to get it running on Mac then use the steps in this post:
Disarm v1.06

Do you have any intention of updating it to function with the newest Warcraft 3 version? Once you do it can be reviewed for approval. Refer to the tool submission rules or contact me if you need any clarification.

    This is groovy :) But why does it remove more than the weapon sometimes? It removes Arthas's hand and the abomination's too. Also, it gives weird errors with custom models. Care to elaborate?

    Otherwise it works actually and it's very smart.

    EDIT: LOL Disarming the Tauren Chieftain removes the whole model :D
    And about the hand removal, it's actually my fault. I should have chosen 'no'.

    EDIT2: After playing around with this for a while, I think it's pretty good. It has very few issues for the original wc3 models (like the tauren chieftain), and very few issues with custom models form the Hive. However, every once in a while it removes the whole body or the face or a body part very distant to the weapon. Maybe it's a problem with the model itself not this program, but I wouldn't know that.

    I have edited this bundle and changed the version number from Disarm v1.05 to Disarm v1.06. There are no major functional differences in the program.
    However, Disarm uses several Matrix Eater libraries, and I have continued development on the Matrix Eater since a year and a half ago when Disarm was published, so I believe there have been a few tweaks to the model editing libraries in that time that will fix minor bugs in this release.

    If anyone has any issue that would suggest Disarm v1.05 was better than Disarm v1.06 in any way, please inform me immediately. I do not use Disarm very frequently, and am less likely to catch bugs in a build like this than in the Matrix Eater.

    Edit: You can also develop code with Disarm and add your own features if you know Java. Just Google up the Matrix Eater Developer Tutorial online.

    Started toying around with weapon and shield attachments and this has been an absolute godsend.

    It happens only the first time, repeat the action and it will be ok.
    I am not sure, but it was the same for me.

    I hear English is a pretty good language, and it is even better if you actually read things written in it.

    Sometimes my old library code I was using tries to require strict Run as Admin access which it doesn't actually need anymore. It might help if you go into AppData and delete your JWC3 folder if you don't mind losing any Matrix Eater preferences that might be stored there. I suggest backing it up before you delete it.
    After you move/delete that folder, if you find it, then it should prompt you again to ask which Warcraft 3 installation you would like to use when you open Disarm.
    You could also try downloading the Matrix Eater software, and using it to configure these settings, if possible. They share the config files in AppData.
