The X-Wing Install System, or XIS (pronounced "zis"),
is designed to be a general-purpose tool for the installation
of modifications for Totally Games' last Star Wars
sim, X-Wing Alliance.
It is analogous to Unreal Tournament's mod install
system, and this is reflected in the choice of the
mod file extension, XMOD.
The original concept was done with the X-Wing Alliance
Upgrade Installer, but despite the success (well,
there was one annoying bug), it seemed incomplete.
I decided to re-code the entire thing from scratch,
and tossed Microsoft's MFC library out the window
in favour of ATL. The result is a much slimmer, faster,
and more customisable platform for mod distribution.

The ShipSet Launcher 2000's purpose is to allow
patches for XwA to be easily installed.
- Execution of XWINGALLIANCE.exe now done through
a bat file.
- Better pilot replacing logic. Now warns you
if the pilot actually exists or not.
- If patchinfo.txt is not included in a gob,
the ShipSet name will be "patchinfo.txt not found" but
the ShipSet will be launchable. (assuming nothing
is wrong with the gob of course).

This application allows you to make Jedi Knight type
of Gob files (similar to a zip file but not compressed).
It will create directory structures determined by
a text file. Dragging a file on XWGob will open it
in the Extract single files mode. Will backup existing
& extract files from a gob file to XwA and launch
XwA, option to restore original files. Displays "patchinfo.txt"
file if present in gob. Can build a patch file used
in changing the XwA exe for shipset use. Will backup
and patch XWingAlliance.exe automatically if a (*.MZT)
file is present in the root dir of the gob , (MZT
is a modified Zt file).
