MOD tool - set BISO thumbnail and replace materials
« on: January 12, 2015, 08:48:35 PM »

Ok, setting the thumbnail on BISO files doesn't work right now, so I made a simple tool to set it outside of PE.

It also allows you to replace one material with another, e.g. if you want to use the Protoss Colony Pack but don't have enough gold ;)

Available here:

(it REALLY ugly. I'm a web developer, not a web designer :/ )


Hope I'm not braking any TOS or anything with this, if so I'll take it down :P

Your tool has been incredibly useful, do you have any plans on updating?  Many new ISO's i found it says version mismatch, and I'm not able to modify it.

(six months later...)

I'm not planning on reverse engineer the file format again, no.
But if someone else has, and describes the changes somewhere, I could update this tool.

Hopefully, the devs will notice this topic and, at some point (when they have a bit more time), compile and publicly release notes on the new format. {Hint, hint...} Doing so would benefit the creation and maintenance of game utilities such as this, which benefits the playerbase. And that, in turn, helps game popularity and sales. Everyone benefits.
