FaMPQ Import Fixer

Submitted by Fakov
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
I was very often approached by a routine connected with the import of content into the map - icons and models. As you know, Blizzards did not provide automatic tools to find the necessary paths and erase these here "war3mapImported". Well, when I needed 30 icons to edit all the paths properly, I decided that I could solve the problem through any mpq editor.
I was very surprised when I did not find a suitable editor for these purposes.
And when I started to write my own, I understood why it was not there.

What it FaMPQ?
As a result, there is the standalone simple tool with the possibility of mass editing the content in the map - icons and models.

Now you can:

1) Massively update all paths for the icons the way they should be (in version 1.0.9 correctly work just with DISBTNs' paths);
2) Add one file to the root of the mpq;
3) Add many files to the root of the mpq;
4) Extract just one file from mpq;
5) Extract all files from mpq;
6) Delete any file into mpq;
7) Rename any file into mpq;
8) Search file by name ito mpq;
9) Sort list of files
10) Compact mpq for removing free space from mpq.
And all of this possibilites will correctly work right away in WE.

Sure, I hear about Grimex with same functional, but I didn't find standalone mpq-editor, which can add new icons into map with correctly path.

Very important thing - this tool use especial library for correct work, so I had to create install package for it. Just install this package and run program. I hope, there will no problem with error about unregistering class (EOleSysError for example). Please, reply me if you see this error (i need to know your windows version).

A useful tool for batch importing disabled icons saving you the effort of doing it manually. The MPQ editing capabilities are nice to have, but there are already existing tools such as Ladiks MPQ editor which handle that portion exceptionally well....

    The MPQ editing capabilities are nice to have, but there are already existing tools such as Ladiks MPQ editor which handle that portion exceptionally well. Maybe a rebranding to an "Import Fixer" might make the use cases for this tool clearer.

    For approval do please uncheck the "Remove war3mapImported/" option by default as this will cause trouble for already existing maps by breaking all their import references.

    I would also suggest to make this tool standalone by default instead of an installer.

    How to import icons already with ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtons\ in front ? (the program is chaning the DISBTN but not the BTN path.) any help?
    Some suggestions that could greatly improve the program.
    1. When double clicking on any item on the list (open it to rename it instantly)
    2. Make the mass selection avaible (for mass delete or so on)
    3. Make actualy hotkeys for Delete,Rename,Extract
    4. Make Delete button work with Delete hotkey.

    Why I can't add more than one file at once? Why isn't .mdl also included? Where are instructions???
    "Extract files" - TO WHERE?

    This is useless, it's literally the same as importing manually and then have this fake job "putting files in folder \blablabla\blablabla\name.blp"
    Currently unacceptable.
