WoW Format Test
Messing around with parsing WoW file formats for educational purposes. Built from the ground up, but with lots of copy pasta from older projects (noted in thanks paragraph).
Built for (latest) World of Warcraft files. No backwards compatibility with anything older than current retail version.
If you have World of Warcraft (7.3.5 or higher) fully installed you can use your installed data instead of falling back to downloading stuff. To set this up, simply change the basedir setting in (executable).config to the directory that contains WoW.exe.
- OpenTK (via NuGet)
Exports various WoW model formats to Wavefront .obj. Primary application.
Does parsing of WoW's raw data files and returns them in a object that other applications can use. Handles CASC (WoW's filesystem), file parsing.
Compiles minimaps. Can also upscale tiles to 512x512 if they are still 256x256.
Cuts compiled minimaps into Google Maps/Leaflet compatible tilesets.
App used to test some formats with.
