History

Snake Man started to figure out how to edit WRP files in 2002. For long time it was no luck, most people said it cant be done and so forth. Luckily great guy called a-lone-wolf came around and supplied the wrp file formats. From there with help of Rom (Romolus?) Snake Man coded the first lines of WrpTool source code. Screenshots got posted and noise was made. Then Dschulle came around and joined the team with his excellent C++ coding capabilities. But with sad events regarding MLOD converter and BAS, April 2004 Rom decided to quit from the team. WrpTool Development team continued with Dschulle and Snake Man.

Latest released version is v0.950
