ConvertWrp Version 1.xx by Mikero

see readmegeneral
see fixes

ConvertWrp converts wrp formats from one format to another from ofp cwc thru to Elite and Arma2 type 24 chernarus

Any wrp will convert to

  • 4WVR (unbinarised ofp)
  • 8WVR (unbinarised arma)
  • Binarised arma (oprw) to another arma binarised type (17,18,20,24)
  • a pew file will convert to 8wvr


essentially, convert wrp converts binarised models of the same family to their unbinarised equivalent.

It is not possible to cross the divide between arma and ofp because arma uses material files(rvmat). ofp uses textures (pax)

all other conversions are at your own risk and will probably fail.

you CANNOT binarise files. Use BisTools

You CAN cut out visitor's depew export function, which is tedious, and use ConvertWrp to convert pew to 8WVR


                      • PEW EXPORT CONVERSION************

ConvertWrp AnyPew.Pew 8

Currently only pew59 and 60 (arma) pews can be converted to 8WVR only

This means you no longer have to have bulldozer or even arma installed on the machine.

There is no expectation at a later date for this tool to binarise the resulting wrp to produce oprw.
