>>> Read changelog, so you know what's new!

What it can do?

  • It's a tool for creating Resource Packs.
  • RPW can remix packs, create new packs, edit old ones.
  • You can add custom sounds, edit texts, images, sounds etc.

  • One-click image/audio editing using GIMP/Audacity or other application of choice
  • Uses a powerful tree structure model, great for combining packs.

  • RPW can mute sound files

  • [ TIP ] To convert your sounds to OGG, you can try online converter Media.IO



Requirements

  • To run RPW, you need Java 6+ and Minecraft 1.6.2+.
  • To use old packs (texture packs), you must first convert them with Unstitcher and Texture Ender (see Minecraft Wiki for info)



How to run it

  • On some systems, just mark the jar as executable and double-click it.

  • If it doesn't work, right click it and select Open with Java (JRE)
  • Command line option: java -jar RPW.jar


Configuring the file editors (Images, Audio, Text)

  • The application was built in Linux, and the "edit" buttons are set up to use GIMP, Audacity and Kate.

  • When used on Windows or Mac, the editors are installed somewhere else, so this won't work.
  • RPW will first try the configured editor, and if it fails, it opens your default associated program.
  • Editors can be configured in Options > Configure editors.

Ctrl+E to export, not save (you don't want XCF). Btw make sure you have GIMP 2.8 or newer, older ones are, well, old and buggy.

It's likely somewhere in .mcRPW/tmp/workdir-yourprojectname/project_files/somewhere - but GIMP should automatically overwrite the file for you, so finding it should not be neccessary.

I need a .png opener that can save transparency... I'm using windows 8 and paint always gets rid of transparency so the bed, glass, beacon, crops, and any other texture that uses transparency has a white box around it. I really want to make a better Smooth Craft texture pack like i did long ago, but back then i used paint.net and it saved with weird discolorations, so i never finished it. Please link me to a .png opener that can save transparency. TY.

Paint is a trash program, get GIMP if you want your textures to look any good. Or the other programs like Paint.NET.

I've been using it for about 2 minutes and I love it already!! Thank you so much for this!!
One thing, though. [size=10pt]It freezes when a file changes externally and I have to reload it. It's become routine for me, though; not too much of a pain.[/size]
Anyway, I'm making a texture pack with this! It's very very early in development of course, but here's what I've got so far: http://www.planetminecraft.com/texture_pack/wonkacraft/

Basically, (while the tool is still open) I save an image I've been working on in GIMP to the project's folder; after which the tool freezes and I have to reload it. It's really just a minor nuisance, though. Pretty easy to get around.

December 8, 2013, 1:42 am

I made a new release, but this issue is probably still not fixed. Anyway, after it freezes, look for .mcRPW/Runtime.log and send me what you find there - if anything.

Note that this doesn't happen to me, so it's probably system dependent. Are you on Windows or Mac?

Well that's bad, because I don't know anyone who would have a mac I could debug it on. Only way I can fix itis if you send me a runtime log and if the log will contain some key information. I don't have a clue why it should freeze.

Btw if you know java, you can get the project files and try to fix it yourself. It's a eclipse project publicly awailable on GitHub (or if you know someone who knows Java, you can ask them for help)

The problem is that if RPW freezes while editing a project and you force-kill it without saving the project, then any changes done to this project will be irreversibly lost. I'm not sure if that's what you are doing, but be aware of it.

Also, after RPW is closed, editing the files in image editor has no more effect and the changes will be discared next time you open RPW and load any project.
