Author is an Japanese, anonymous, I call him/her "65" ,call this tool
set "65Tools" here. There are two program in the tool set:

actOR:
A great ACT editor, easy use than xzvf. actOR can UNDO/REDO, loading
refer files, copy one action to another...and so on.

pakext:
A command line program GRF/GPF extractor, type "pakext -h" for more
infomation. When customize file type grf/gpf setup well, it's very
convenient to click and then extract/encode(?)/preview/list GRF/GPF
files.

Both of them are Japanese soft(can use in win98.)(actOR have English version after 2004/7/26), source code attached. You can edit the source for compile an English version. Compile a pakext Linux version is also possible.

File type and action

It's possible to add file types in windows that you can open SPR/GRF/
GPF files with double click. For example, I place 65Tools in
"C:\Program Files\65ArcData\", my setting is:

open(SPR)
"C:\Program Files\65ArcData\actOR.exe" "%1"

open(GRF,GPF)
"C:\Program Files\65ArcData\pakext.exe" -E "%1"

preview(GRF,GPF)
"C:\Program Files\65ArcData\pakext.exe" -C "%1"

More information please see readme_pakext.txt(in binary package.)


Little memo of actOR

You can use refer files only when you put some sprite file set in the
direction of 65Tools, for example:

C:\Program Files\65ArcData\ref_head.spr
C:\Program Files\65ArcData\ref_head.act

Only ref_head will change position with open file's extraX/extraY.
More information please see readme_actor.txt(in binary package.)
