RPW has a website!
> rpw.ondrovo.com

> Follow @RPWapp on Twitter!

> Arch Linux users can now install RPW from AUR!

> OLD! Download for OS X (4.2.0) (packaged by Jiggy12321)

To use the OSX version, mount it as a disk image, and drag RPW app to your Apps folder

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


  • To run RPW, you need Java 7+ 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.

When I try to import an already made resource pack, I click "Open" and the window closes but it doesn't do anything. There's no other words in the "Select pack file..." box and when I click create it says "The selected file does not exist."

Yep, in the 'models' folder you are able to edit models from blocks and items, which makes you able to make 3d items and blocks.

  • MightyPork
  • Level 90
  • Overlord Modder
  • March 26, 2016, 6:11 am
if they are not there in Vanilla, then I'm afraid not. RPW was created long before JSON was even used in the game, much less models. So it doesn't really count with this sort of thing - it's mainly for editing textures.

So I had this a little while back and then I got a new computers with windows 10. I downloaded JRE 7+ but when i try to run it with java, only cmd prompt pops up and closes. Nothing is shown that relates to java in TaskMngr and It is really bugging me out since I want to get back into making texture packs. I have also tried making the JAR file into an EXE but windows says it can run it. Please tell me how to get it running PLEASE. Thanks man :)

you probably didn't configure it right, but at any rate this is not the place to get help - I go here only when releasing a new version.

post it in the bugtracker. btw works perfectly OK for me.
I absolutely loved this when I was making my resource pack, although there is one thing I could request, if possible. (I know nothing about coding, so if this is extraneous, sorry) I think it would be cool if you could create a language pack inside the resource pack using the editor. I know I followed a video to make mine, and that is extremely complicated. It would be nice if I could just sit down and edit things instead of going through file after file trying to figure out what I messed up. (thanks for reading, anyhow)

If you double click the file from the start and it does this, there is an obvious explanation.
It is a .jar file, so you can't simply click it to open it.
I usually use a file managing software such as WinRar to extract the .zip or .exe file from the folder.
This usually runs the actual program.
Hope this helps.~

Before I updated to Windows 10, I would click "edit" and it would bring me to edit on paint.net. But since I updated to Windows 10, it's been using the default editor. I'm better at editing with paint.net, as I am used to it and better with it. I got the paint.net app, and set it as my default editor, but it wouldn't work. Please help?

please go to the settings menu, open the Editors config dialog, and there you can configure your editors. You'll have to find the GIMP's "exe" file
This thing is amazing, and I found it on the fourms originally, and since I don't have an account there I just wanted to tell you ill (hopefully) be posting a texture pack that i made using your program. It is truely amazing and really helps the organization process and just, what i'm trying to say is THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING THIS!!!! now if only someone could do this for modding... lol
