Introduction ============ 'mpq-tools' is a set of utilities to extract, create or manipulate MoPaQ mpq archives used by blizzard in their games. MPQ, or MoPaQ, is a proprietary archive format created by Mike O'Brien, the man hailed as Blizzard's multiplayer engine genius, back in 1996 as a general purpose archive for use with Diablo, and named narcissistically for its creator "Mike O'brien PaCK". The copyrights to it, however, are held by Havas Interactive, Blizzard's parent company. The archive format is used by many Blizzard titles like Diablo, Diablo 2, Starcraft, Warcraft 2: BNE, a newer version in Warcraft 3 and World of Warcraft (WoW). Manual ====== Since version 0.4.0 the 'mpq-tools' package comes with a manpage for every utility. If you use 'mpq-tools' first time it is a good idea to read the `FAQ' file.
