Resource File Helper

I just finished a GUI to help manage the resource files generated by my Resource File class. The GUI is most excitingly called Resource File Helper. It is written with Qt 4.7.2 and is meant to make the process of reading and writing resource files a lot simpler. For example, if you want to use my Resource File class for your game, you can use this GUI to easily generate the resource file with a friendly graphic interface.

There current version is version 1.0.


You can download the Win32 binary here, or you can download the source code to the program here, if you want to compile it yourself or run it on a different platform.

Here is a link to my GitHub repository for both the base class and the GUI.


On the Read tab, you can drag-and-drop an existing resource file (generated by my library, of course) to view its contents.

On the Write tab, you can drag-and-drop files onto the window to create a new resource file.
