BglAnalyzeX syntax

Recommended Posts

Guys, I want to use this program to look at a Bgl file, but the readme does not indicate the proper syntax for using the program. To save myself some possible headaches, do I run the program and follow prompts, or run the program from a command line, or ??Thanks for your help and info.

This is a windows program. Just open it in Windows and use File - Open to read an FSX bgl file, then use File - Disassemble to create the xml file. Edit: It will also pull out and save any mdl files in the bgl. Very useful for creating sim objects.

Hello Ken,BGLAnalyzeX does not work in the same manner as the FS 9 version.From the "Readme":Both programs have been converted to console programs, so you can either start them from a DOS window or you can just drop the name of a bgl file on to the name of the program in Explorer.So, the proper syntax, like all console applications, would be:executable_name file_nameBut, drag-and-drop is really much simpler and quicker.Best regards.Luis

There is a switch. the full syntax is:BglAnalyzeX.exe input_file_name [output_file_name] [-fs9]where:input_file_name is an FSX format scenery bgl fileoutput_file_name is an optional file name for the dissaembled output. If not provided the input_file_name is used with the extension.xml-fs9 is an optional switch which causes any xml elements which are FSX-unique to be commented-out in the output file. scott s..
