Brief instructions for the RWX batch manipulator

Thanks to Andras for his zipdll.dll that is used by the program !
If you don't like this program interface, check his Multizip.

WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?
RWBat can exchange textures / masks that are referenced in RWX Models and change their texture tiling (UV values). It can not add textures to untextured polygons!
It can change the models sizes and orientations (rotate / mirror) and flip the lit attribute.
It can handle RWX script files and ZIP / GZIP compressed RWX.
The model files are fed in via Drag&Drop, the resulting model files have the same name and file type as the source models.
Be careful to specify a new destination folder for the created models as RWBat overwrites without asking!

It's brand new - if a problem occurs, please send an EMail with the problem description.

Info : RWBat analyzes the RWX files only line-by-line, so it does not calculate new vertex positions. It just inserts scale and rotate lines, modifies the UV and texture commands and flips polygons if necessary.
