Thanks, as always, for the updates! :thx:

There is again a new version of GbxDump. As with the last two releases, the changes concern the displayed thumbnail. This is now displayed transparently on a checkerboard pattern (if an alpha channel is present).

Changes of version 1.68:
· Support for non-standard custom thumbnails
· Added transparent display of the thumbnail

Details can be found in the GitHub repository of GbxDump.

Further versions are not planned yet.

Any possibility to merge the functionality of GbxItemInfo into GbxDump? It'd be nice to be able to see the embedded items in a map when looking at it in GbxDump.

Hi eyebo,

basically this wouldn't be a problem. However, I would have to use a decompression library that is licensed under the GPL v2.
So I would have to either put GbxDump under the GPL as well or ask the licensor of the library to provide it to me under a different license (possibly for a fee). I don't want to do either.

Instead I added a query of the used objects/items from ManiaExchange. But the map must already be available on ManiaExchange. I don't know if this is helpful for you.

Download from GitHub: gbxdump.zip (1.8 MB)

Changes of version 1.69:
· Added query of used items and custom blocks from ManiaExchange
· Using an off-screen buffer for flicker-free thumbnail display

Thanks for the explanation and for the update! This will work at least for some maps.
