Now we are starting to get someplace!  I've really been enjoying the opportunity to learn WPF by re-writing the application.  Plus it's given me some renewed interest in it's development, which is good for everyone.

I'm having a bit of trouble figuring out how to use this. Would you be able to add a quick tutorial/getting started section some point in the future?

EDIT: My bad, was under the impression this was up to date, silly me! Lovely project though!

It isn't :c
It's not current version and apparently the dev was working with a new thing to make a better version

Just wanted to confirm that this tool runs under wine on OSX using a prefix with a win32 architecture and winetricks to install dotnet40 and gdiplus_winxp. Thanks for your hard work building this tool. The building designer was exactly what I was looking for.

Necro this thread.

This tool is still listed on the Utilities thread, but seems long abandoned, and it was very useful.
I found repo's for it on SourceForge, etc., but no code was ever committed.

Does anyone have the source code for RawExplorer?

Does anyone have a complete parser for RAWs that supports all file types?

I didn't explicitly try, but the last version should still parse the raws and show creature graphics correctly. I don't think there was a syntax change. There's also the standardization tools by a user called Quietsun written in matlab. That code also parses the creature raws (and the code is on github). That might help you. What specifically are you planning to do? If you tell us your intentions, we might be able to help better.

I'm writing a Lua based raw processor, for making procedural mods.

DFHack uses lua natively, and lua was specifically designed to do data description, so it fits perfectly.
Instead of resolving conflicts between mods, apply them over each other.

Completely parsing existing raws into a data structure with validation is daunting  (especially creature raws).

Nice! When will it be available?


The new version probably won't be available for several weeks yet.  There is a lot of minimum required functionality that hasn't been re-implemented yet.  The first few releases will still probably be missing functions compared to the current WinForms version.

If you are really curious and brave (and know how to compile software) you can grab the source code from http://rawexplorer.codeplex.com; it's updated whenever I make a change.  Depending on when you grab the source it might be horribly broken though.  If anyone is interested in helping out with code just let me know.  The codeplex project is all setup for forks and accepting pull requests.

apologies for the necropost but i believe it is worth it since it seems the source code is still in here (for now, the site says it will shut down in july 2021... considering its almost october 2021 theres probably no predicting when it will shut down. I have downloaded it however and i believe its also saved on the wayback machine)

since the original author has completely vanished would it be possible for it to be restarted by the community or is it not worth it at this point?

Thanks for saving it! I think Raw Explorer might be too outdated to revive, especially with promising new projects on the horizon, which should hopefully fill its niche. Nonetheless, having the source code available is a positive, if only for the sake of conservation.
