    Hello everyone!


    The other day I made a program that should simplify your development, or installation of Addons on the server (I think so). We all unpack Addons downloaded from Workshop, but this tool will simplify the process of unpacking in two clicks.


    I understand that this tool has little functionality... But, I ask you to help me with it! You can write your wish what you would like to see in the tool. Or, to describe the bug.


    At the moment, this tool has:
    • Settings:
    • --- Patch to output directory
    • --- Add button in context menu
    • --- Remove button from context menu
    • --- Open folder with unpacked files after extract
    • --- Auto-close unpacking window after extract
    • Context menu:
    • --- Extract GMA Addon
    • --- --- Extract files to your folder from settings (folder/addonname_00000000)
    • --- --- Show how long it took to unpack (Time passed)
    • --- --- Pretty output

    Planned to do:
    • Settings:
    • --- Position in context menu
    • --- Extract to FTP
    • --- --- Setting up data from FTP server
    • --- --- Select directory to publish after extract
    • Context menu:
    • --- Extract GMA Addon
    • --- --- If FTP enabled, publishing unpacked addon to FTP

    Write your reviews, opinions, found bugs, suggestions and more! I'm still going to read it and possibly make it into the tool.

    Divinity, I know that you need it :D
    Also I ask you about what I asked users FacePunch. Write your review, opinion, suggestion for improvement.

    EDIT: Not enough time to update the post here, sorry.

    You can always default gma files to gmad.exe without the application but this is a pretty helpful tool regardless. Awesome work

    What is the advantage of using this over gmad/gmosh?

    Pretty cool that you made it as a project tho

    The advantage of my tool is that it can be unpacked by right-clicking on it .gma file.
