Converting .Mission file to .msnbin file

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to convert .Mission file to .msnbin file (without opening Mission Editor)  from e.g command line like ...\editor\STEditor.exe file.Mission file.msnbin?

I think there are a few people doing that, but AFAIK they haven't told us how they do it. I can see two ways: use GUI testing automation tools with STEditor.exe, or dynamically link to MissionManager.dll and call the methods that load mission files and save msnbin files.

Is there a command line interface for STEditor.exe?

no.

 

Actually even if it was, the .Mission format parsing takes time enough to hate it (at least in used parser). Thus it is not good for fast conversion of .Mission to .msnbin.

There is non-public tool which can do this conversion, but it's performance is not quite good (same parser).

There is demand for public access to command line tool, though.

Thanks Taleks.  The conversion is very efficient out of the ME.  Hope to have this available through a command line one day but I understand that it is not necessarily your #1 burning priority :)

Is this non-public tool available for us? Can I download it from somewhere?

Hello, I read that the new update 7b msbin format has changed files. Any chance of getting a tool outside the mission editor?

thanks

You can convert .MISSION for .MSNBIN in ME without open one by one an save.

 

Use the TOOLS >  Convert Missions to binary in Folder

 

Point the folder where are the .mission files.

thanks, but it's not what we're looking for. We seek an independent tool ME, MP missions to generate dynamic through PHP

J27_Targ was asking about the other direction, msnbin to mission. The tool announced for 1.108 will convert mission to msnbin, I believe.

 

Anyway, the reason J27_Targ was asking that was, I presume, because he wanted to run old missions he had downloaded, and had only the msnbin file. The correct way to fix this is to get the mission maker, who probably still has the mission file, to re-save the files to msnbin.

The tool to convert .mission files to .msbin is all ready in the editor!
