    Mr.Stalin submitted a new resource:
    Fallout DAT Explorer II - Fallout 1/2 packer and unpacker for .DAT files

    dat.png

    Features:
    1. Association of the program with. dat files (double-click for opening).
    2. Drag&Drop files from windows explorer to the program interface, or to windows explorer to quickly extract them.
    Disadvantages:
    1. The file explorer for the disk root folder and windows desktop is not updated automatically when using the Drag&Drop method in Windows 7, and possibly Windows 10.

    The drag&drop ability works pretty well (except for the update issue for certain directories). It's the greatest improvement over the old explorer IMO.
    It would be nice if it can remember the "View" setting on close, so I don't have to select "Vew->Details" every time launching the explorer.

    I compared speeds (using stopwatch) of extracting between two programs Dat Explorer 1.43 vs Fallout Dat Explorer II.

    When extracting all files of fallout.dat which comes included with FOnline2 S3 Client on the Samsung SSD drive (970 EVO PLUS) and WD Mechanical Drive (Black edition) separately,
    Results are:
    -------------------------------------------
    Version | SSD | HDD
    1.43 Dat | 21s | 19s
    Dat Expl II | 26s | 21s
    -------------------------------------------
    (time is in seconds)

    Processor is Intel i7-9700k. Did test out of curiosity, to determine which dat explorer is faster, but since tests may rely on the 3rd party libraries of archiving it's difficult to make conclusion.

    Good job though.

    1.43 Dat - c++
    Dat Expl II - c# (it will be slower)
