Welcome to the Resolute MXB Track Builder Helper application. 

I created this application to help MXB track builders to create valid text files that are needed for the tracks.  It will help new track builders avoid common mistakes and give experienced track builders a more streamlined build process.

Feature List:
  • Creates text files for: HMF, THT, AMB, SSC, INI, GFX, SHD.
  • Validates heightmap for Power of 2 (+1 pixel).
  • Validates textures and masks for correct format, Power of 2 dimensions, and needed alpha channels.
  • Creates shader (SHD) files for your textures.
  • Import existing project files.
  • Uses the PiBoSo track tools in a central location - no need to copy them to each track project you have.
  • Allows for use of spaces in track folder names.
  • And many more useful features

Nicely done! I am building my first track right now so I am just learning about all of this but I imagine this helps out big time. Thanks for sharing it with everyone you could have just kept it for yourself like a lot of people in other communities would do! I am sure once I learn a lot more this tool will really come in handy because I have a pretty big list of tracks I wanna build for this game. Its time to start bringing back some of the tracks from the 90's so thanks again for your hard work!
Cheers
