New program – Thimbleweed Park Explorer

I’ve just released a new program Thimbleweed Park Explorer. Like my other explorer programs it lets you view, extract and convert resources from the game.

The format of the resource files changed slightly in the various updates the game received so it’ll only work with the latest version. Currently thats version 1421.958 (you can see the version in the bottom right of the options screen).

Download it here.


I wasn’t planning to make an explorer tool for Thimbleweed Park but I wanted to relearn C# and needed a test project. The source is on my Github, there are 3 filetypes that I haven’t had time to decode so pull requests and fixes are welcome.

Telltale Music Extractor Supports New Games

Telltale Music Extractor hasn’t been updated in a year so I’ve released a new version.

It adds support for The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, Episode 1 of Batman: The Enemy Within, Episodes 1 and 2 of Guardians of the Galaxy and Episodes 1 and 2 of Minecraft Story Mode Season 2.

I’ve added skeleton support for the unreleased episodes of Batman, Guardians and Minecraft. So they should work when released without me needing to update the program.

USB Disk Ejector Updated

I’ve just uploaded a new version of USB Disk Ejector.

This release fixes inconsistencies with its handling of memory cards, changes the ‘bring to front’ hotkey so its a show/hide toggle and adds a /EJECTCARD switch to let you eject memory cards from the command line.

The full list of changes can be seen in the readme.

Atoms app updated

My mobile game Atoms has been updated. You can now choose the board size when starting a game.

Atoms is a remake of the classic amiga game of the same name. It is free and guaranteed to be more fun than sticking a fork in your eye.

DoubleFine Explorer Fixed

There was a problem with the last version of DoubleFine Explorer – some files in Full Throttle Remastered weren’t dumped correctly.

I’ve now fixed this, many thanks to Nor Treblig for spotting the error.

Introducing The Vault

Over the years many brilliant tools have been created and many of these used to be hosted on Lucashacks. Unfortunately, during one of Mixnmojo’s many catastrophes Lucashacks was lost, the SCUMM Revisited website went with it and recently Lucasforums disappeared too.

This means that there’s lots of information and tools that have disappeared from the internet. In an effort to fix this I’ve created The Vault – a section on this site where I’m hosting all the SCUMM/Lucasarts tools that have disappeared. I’ve uploaded 27 tools today and there’s still more to add.

Just to make it clear – none of these tools were written by me – they are hosted here for posterity.

Visit The Vault and have a look.

I released a game – Atoms

I’ve just released a game on the Google Play Store. Its a remake of a classic Amiga game by Tom Kuhn that I’ve always loved.

Atoms is a fun, turn-based multiplayer game based on explosions and chain reactions. You can read more about it on its page but of course I’d love you to install and try it.

I always told myself that if and when I made a game – the first one would be an Atoms remake. I’m really pleased with how it turned out and although its missing some elements (like a tutorial) it works well and keeps me and my friends entertained. Its written using Corona SDK which I like because its cross-platform, has lots of useful documentation and uses Lua – which I’ve enjoyed programming with.

Please download and give it a try!

Telltale Explorer updated. Is old.

I’ve just released a new version of Telltale Explorer. See the readme for the full list of changes but the highlights are:

  • Added support for The Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead Season Two, Tales from the Borderlands and Game of Thrones.
  • Fixed the broken images in Poker Night 2 and later games – all images should now decode correctly.
  • Added Lua script decompiling for the games released since The Wolf Among Us.
  • Changed the appearance a little to make it easier to use
  • Improved the autodetection of resources so all games should decode correctly again

While working on it I realised that Telltale Explorer is now more than 10 years old. The first version was made in 2006 and the fact that I’ve continued to update it for so long is preposterous and deeply scary. Originally it worked on the two games available  – Out From Boneville and Telltale Texas Holdem, it now supports 25 games and has some ridiculously complicated code just to deal with so many different versions and file formats. If I’d thought about it I could have released this version it as a ‘special anniversary edition’ or something. Oh well.

USB Disk Ejector finally updated

It doesn’t seem like it, but its been a rather terrifying 5 years since the last release of USB Disk Ejector.

Version adds an option to use the escape key to minimize the window, fixes problems with some rare drives that don’t have a mountpoint and stops compressing with UPX. The changes are described in more detail in the readme.
