[Feature Request] OIV Package Creator

Recommended Posts

DKingCN

Hi, Thank you all for the contribution to openiv.

 

Recently I'm trying to find a way to generate an .oiv package for a large mod compilation.

 

So I read the .oiv format wiki, only to found it's all manual. I understand you may want to keep it raw to make sure the modders know what exactly they are releasing, but for some other group, it means more than 10 GBs of x64*.rpf for each sharing and that is the only option: They just patched too many to sort out a new oiv package.

The .oiv installer is our 'patch' tool. I think we need a 'diff' tool too.

 

I tried to help with some kind of external tool development or maybe even internal feature contribution of openiv, or rpf extractor is fine enough, but I failed to find any information, neither in GitHub or official website. Here I had to ask for your support. 

 

The easiest way is to compare x64*.rpf in ROOT directory and ROOT/mods directory and generate them automatically. BTW a simple OIV creator can be added as a useful feature. This is the best solution as I can see. 

 

Contact me if you need hands. Will be glad if I can help.

... I found the extraction option. So the diff tool is unnecessary. Thanks.

Still guess we need some command line API.

Batch extraction is painful by hands cos RPF can be nested.
