Chunky is a simple hex editor that understands the chunked file format used by many files in Renegade. Full editing is supported inside chunks, but you currently can't add or remove chunks.

Suppose I didn't know what this might be useful for, what would this enable?

It is very easy to modify textures inside w3d files now. Mostly for modders.

EDIT: Chunky doesn't support windows XP? What the...

It allows you to easily view the hierarchy in a chunked file (like .w3d, .ddb, .ldd, .lsd, etc), select individual chunks, edit them, and potentially add or remove bytes without needing to manually update the size field of the chunk.

What!? This definitely wasn't intended, are you getting any specific errors?

I am getting no specific errors. Just the error message where it says "we have encountered a problem, send this error report to microsoft which doesn't do anything" According to my event viewer, this is a Net Runtime 2.0 problem. I'm downloading that now, see if it fixes it. I doubt it though.

EDIT: Looks like it isn't. 2.0 is also fully updated, even with the second service pack.

EDIT2: According to the Event Viewer, this is the full error:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: .NET Runtime 2.0 Error Reporting

So is the Chunk tool that can be used to properly display lightmaps?

Not sure if I understood this correctly. If you are asking if this tool can be used to modify .w3d files in order to add PRELIT_ chunks, the answer is no (chunks currently cannot be added, removed, or reordered).

I asked due to a previous PM i sent you earlier about WLT files,

and you replied with this

Quote:

The chunk tool will be released when it's done, the wlt plugin is attached. You will need the Visual Studio 2010 Redistributable package installed.


Quote:

The wlt file just contains lights that are imported into LevelEdit for dynamic objects. The chunk tool takes 3 or 5 different exported w3d files (depending on whether or not alternate materials are used aka destroyed building materials/lights) and turns them into a single w3d file with proper lightmap chunks so that the lighting mode setting in wwconfig works and the game/LE don't try applying vertex lighting.


So that's why i asked if this was the chunk tool you had mentioned that would create a new W3D with the prelit chunks

But i'm guessing this is different Huh
