Where available options are:
Code:
--help - Lists available commands

--no-logFile - Disable log file
If no output directory or input file is provided, the GUI is started as usual.

This is an open source project. Check it out at the GitHub Repository.

I think we're fine. Only one Antivirus (NANO) detected a trojan, so it's most certainly a false positive.

Thanks for the uploading. Definitely going to try this baby out. Not for any particular reason, really.

Hmph. Java. Did you manage to load the XNB files in Java? I needed such a piece of code like, 2 years ago, lol.
Anyway, good job I guess. The XNB -> PNG tool was getting old.

EDIT: Oh, nope. The XNB -> PNG part is C#. Welp.

Google Chrome is saying it's malware. I'd really like to try this out, so if it isn't really malware, try to fix that. :/

@SpartaCraft I wonder, did you ever try downloading ANY .EXE FILE WITH ANY MODERN BROWSER? They all go "it might be malware, open at your own risk" - just so you can't blame the browser author for anything. It's not like every .EXE file is malware. I don't even think 10% of total .EXE files are malware.
Same goes for .JAR.

Also, I don't think you should be using this app, if you're so worried. You sound like someone who shouldn't be using this, or just won't have any use of it.

Well, use another browser or disable the "malware" block in chrome.

Well, everything exept LZX decompression and the xWma to wav conversion was done in java. I've thought of porting the rest so it can be run on all platforms, but it's tricky.

No, I've only seen it with this EXE. How do I sound like "someone who shouldn't be using this"? I'm saying I'm not going to needlessly download a virus, so I would rather he just fixed the problem instead of me turning off malware protection.

This is pretty awesome, nice work :D

Now if only I could get lossless copies of the Terraria Console Exclusive tracks, my terraria music folder would be complete!
Edit: I actually managed to do that with a few tools, woo a complete terraria music collection ^.^

Some programs look like malware because of how they work, there's not some kind of magic switch you can flip in the code that tells google chrome something isn't malware.

I know. But when other EXE's don't have this problem, there should be a way for them to not have this problem either.

Though with all the positive feedback on this thread, I'll turn off my malware protection just to download this.
