Is anyone using the new ras to bmp tool Andras made? It seems to be working
until I get to the "double click image to save" part. I have double clicked
my finger off and nothing happens! Could someone please give 5 or 6 brief
steps as to how to use this tool? Thanx

[View Quote] Dunno, when I open a ras file and then doubleclick the picture,
a Save As window pops up where I can choose to save it as either
bmp, ico, emf or wmf file, into which folder I want.

Could it be a bug with some systems? I have XP SP2 with the latest patches.

I did not plan to create this tool to help the thieves but to help the community. I never released a cache to rwx program :)
Unfortunately the textures can be downloaded by anyone having access to a browser and having the cache directory in hand.
I would like to see some kind of obfuscation of the OP in the cache but that is a long shot (and the thieves can figure it out just like they do it now)

Several attempt I made to hide the OP behind some php script failed due to some silly firewalls (Norton comes to my mind at this moment) which thinks passing referer is a bad thing :(
The original MultiPath script was checking not only the Agent but the referer, so only the AW browser is allowed to get the content of the OP.

Yeah, don't get me wrong.. I'm not giving your program negative feedback. I
believe you did very well and that it will help the community a lot.

I was just messing around.
And yeah, textures will never be safe really.
