Tool used to extract core files from the PS2 disc of Quake 3.

==================================== QUAKE 3 REVOLUTION TOOLS===================================================

Here's a basic explanation of how to use the tools provided in this archive.

First of all, the extracted/converted resources will be saved in the same path as the original resource,
so don't be surprised if you try to extract files placed in a CD/directory where you don't have
write permissions and it doesn't work :)

To use the tools only for specific resources, launch them from a command prompt without any parameters and usage instructions will be printed in there; the rest is pretty straightforward.

If you want to mass-convert all SDT and/or SSH files, I've provided 2 .bat files which should make the task easier; they can't be used straight out of the box though, open them with a text editor first (e.g. right-click->Edit) and follow the instructions provided there in the comments (the lines which begin with "REM", that is).

Once you're done, double-click the .bat file(s) and that's it (useless to say, the .bat files must be in the
same path as the .exe they're related to in order for them to work).

==================================== STUFF NOBODY CARES ABOUT===================================================

The batch file to mass-extract .SDT files places every .SDT file's path in a variable, then invokes the .exe only once with the full list of filenames; this is obviously the optimal approach.

Unfortunately, Windows' command prompt variables can hold up to 8192 characters, and since Q3R contains over 11.000 SSH files, it's impossible to put them all in a variable; hence why the batch file to mass-convert SSH images invokes the exe over and over for every single SSH file.

This makes it a little less efficient than invoking it only once, but it sure beats manually converting each file from all subdirectories, does it? :)

Last but not least, if you want to dig into the source code for these tools for whatever reason, here you go:
