  5. ModView (for Windows and Mac)

    What is ModView?
    ModView is a tool to view models used by Jedi Knight II and Jedi Academy. It was originally created by Raven Software and now being improved by the OpenJK developers.
     
    ModView currently supports only .glm model format.
     
    What's different?
    The original ModView runs only on Windows. This ModView currently runs on Windows and Mac with some functionality disabled. Going forward, ModView will see more functionality restored, and changes to improve usability and to aid the process of getting models into JK2/JKA.
     
    If you are able to run the original ModView on Windows without problems, I recommend people to continue using ithe original if you don't want any reduced functionality.
    How to use
    Extract all the files to a folder of your choosing.
    Run ModView.exe (Windows) or Modview.app (Mac)

    Known Issues
    Currently, some of the ModView features are missing as changes are made to add Linux and Mac support. These features will be added back in the future, along with improvements!
    Attached models don't show up in the control on the left side of the window.
    No way of adjusting the floor position

  7. Autodesk 3DS Max 6-2021 GLM Importer/Exporter Plugins

    These plugins were created on request by Milamber, with a lot of cooperation from him for testing and feature requirements.
    They allow you to import .glm models to Autodesk 3DS Max 2010 - 2016, both 32bit and 64bit versions. (32bit support was discontinued from 3DS Max 2014 and up, so there are no 32bit versions of those.)
     
    GLM models that are weighted to a skeleton can be imported with a skeleton if you have the matching .GLA file. If you do not have one, you can cancel that step and you will have an unweighted model imported.
     
    The plugins have been tested with creating/modifying for Jedi Academy:
    - Player models
    - Creature models (Non-player usable models, such as rancor and wampa)
    - Sabers
    - Vehicles
    - Weapons
     
    Should probably work for Jedi Outcast as well, but this has not been tested.
     
    The plugins have been tested and verified with the following 3DS Max versions:
    - 3DS Max 2011 32bit
    - 3DS Max 2011 64bit
    - 3DS Max 2012 64bit
    - 3DS Max 2015 64bit
     
    Installation:
    Pick the required plugin matching your 3DS Max installation, and put it into your 3DS Max plugins folder.
     
    Example: 64bit
    You have 3DS Max 2015 (64bit, since there is no 32bit) installed at the following location:
    "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2015\"
     
    Move the following files:
    GLM_Exporter_2015_x64.dle
    GLM_Importer_2015_x64.dli
     
    into
    "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2015\plugins\"
     
     
     
    Example: 32bit
    You have 3DS Max 2011 32bit installed at the following location:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Autodesk\3ds Max 2011\"
     
    Move the following files:
    GLM_Exporter_2011_Win32.dle
    GLM_Importer_2011_Win32.dli
     
    into
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Autodesk\3ds Max 2011\plugins\"
     
    How To Use
    Milamber has created a tutorial on JKHub:

  8. Jedi Academy File Manager

    Jedi Academy File Manager
    JAFM Beta Version 00.01.01
     
    Introduction
    Jedi Academy File Manager (JAFM) is a utility for easily keeping track of PK3's/Packages, Mods, and CFG's for your Jedi Academy game. You can install new PK3's and mods, view / edit their in-depth properties, and even remove them from your game folder. Currently it's in beta, there are features being added and tweaked as development goes on. All criticism, enthusiasm, evaluation, etc. is appreciated. (if you find an issue, please PM me directly on JKhub!)
     
    Features
    - Enable/Disable PK3's
    - Detailed PK3 support for modders
    - Dynamic mod installation & management
    - CFG (scripts and configs) editor.
    - JASP/JAMP launcher with argument support.
    - Profile system for keeping multiple sets of gamedata folders and selections of active packages.
    - Large amount of backgrounds to choose from, all from JA! (reason the DL is so big, sorry)
    - Automatic PK3-type name parsing (authors and version #'s require jafm_info.txt files)
     
    Installation
    1. Download JAFM.
    2. Put the application wherever you want, and start it up. It does not need to be in a certain directory.
    3. Use as you see fit!
     
    Planned Features
    - PK3 packaging tool & editor for quick fixes / access
    - MAC AND LINUX SUPPORT
    - List sorting
    - Skins and more customization
    - More ergonomic CFG editor and modder support
     
    Things That Don't Work & Disclaimers
    - If you have a steam installation of JA, due to the way steam works you will be unable to launch multiplayer from JAFM. Sorry!
    - This application must be ran in administrator mode for people who have installed JA into their "x:\Program Files" and "x:\Program Files (x86)" directories.
    - Mac & Linux aren't supported yet.
    - I'm confident JAFM won't destroy your game or folders, however if you don't believe me - back up your GameData folder before use.
     
    Further Notes
    - I've been working on versions of this for nearly two years, inspired by the likes of NMM and MO.
    - Just recently started learning how to use WPF, this is my first project with it.
     
    Modder Support
    1. Download a copy of the jafm_info.txt file found here: clicky clicky OR download from the JKH link, there'll be a folder named "sample jafm_info"
    2. Fill out your mod's details inside.
    3. Put the jafm_info.txt into your PK3's top directory or next to it inside a ZIP file.
    4. JAFM will attempt to look for a jafm_info.txt and a read-me.txt during analysis.
    5. A plethora of Read-Me file names are searched to cover multiple possibilities of you messing up
     
    Credits
    - Thanks to MasterM, he has been my most dedicated tester.
    - Thanks to Fal & Zab for the support & encouragement.

  10. 3DS Max 2013 .MAP Exporter

    Very handy tool for creating maps and exporting as .MAP from 3DS Max to GtkRadiant. If you have any questions or problems then let me know!
     
    Note: It seems to work best with GtkRadiant 1.4.0 as this version of Radiant is best suited for JKA.
     
    ======================================================================
     
     
    Just drag and drop "GLBuilderV2_22max4-8.ms" into 3DS Max or 'RUN' it via the Max script menu.
     
    Enjoy!

    Game Level Builder 2.22 (for 3ds max™ 3-2008, Viz and gmax®) updated:7 Dec 2007
     
    Game Level Builder 2.2 Rated Champion of the Month by Pixel (France) in magazine No. 85.
     
    GLB 2.22 is a free tool set for creating convex solid geometry (csg) based game levels in Autodesk's 3ds max®, VIZ® and gmax®, It is an essential tool for building Half-Life®, Counter-Strike® and Quake® Levels. Building your level is easy, all you have to do is draw where you want your walls to be created, and then click on the walls where you would like doors or windows placed. Floors can be created with a single click and then copied to make ceilings. GLB2 is very useful for making buildings of any kind in max. You can make pipes or any other loft based object with PipeMax script (included). It's possible with PipeMax to make, Pipes, Tunnels, Arches, Roofs, Stairs, and even any lathe type object such as a hollow sphere or vase. GLB2 also includes 'Handy Cam' a first person camera that lets you walk around your level easily. 'Handy Cam' can be set to create a spline along the path of the camera, which can then be used to make roller-coaster shaped walls or pipes. Another use for this path is to render walk-throughs of your level. Ever wanted to make a fly-through animation of a building but found moving and keyframing the camera a pain, well not anymore. GLB now includes Map Exporter 1.0 Limited Edition. A custom written script to export your levels to .map files in seconds, allowing you to add entities in WorldCraft® or a similar level editior. Note: Map Exporter LE does not export texture coordinates, for full texture support and much much more, check out Convexity our professional level design package.
     
    NEW features in Version 2.22:
     
    Updated Map Exporter LE so map files are now compatible with GTK Radiant.
     
    All walls are now made convex, so you don't have to worry so much about making walls turn on the level to stop twisted faces.
     
    Floor tool has been improved so that floors created on slopes work more reliably.
     
    Holes that could sometimes occur in floors due to a spline not being correctly extruded have been fixed. Floor pieces are now editable meshes, not extruded splines.
     
    04 version updated for 3ds max 9 - 2008 and has been improved to work with dual monitor setups.

  12. Map Models - Image Reference Library for JK2/JKA

    JK2/JKA Map Models (v1.0)
    Image Reference Library
     
    by Szico VII
    May 13th 2013

    =====================
     
    Map Models - Screenshot Reference Library (v1.0) for JK2/JKA
    Size: 51.78MB
     
    ===========
    Description
    ===========
     
    This is a complete compressed (.zip) file containing screenshot references of all the JK2 and JKA model assets,
    located in the base/models/map_objects folder. This should make it easier for modders of the game to browse
    the models and decide which to use without manually loading each and every model in radiant to check.
     
     
    You should unzip the entire library to your computer so you can utilise your OS's inbuilt thumbnail viewer.
     
    ===========
    Notes
    ===========
     
    - Some models are broken - i.e they are missing texture assets. These are clearly labelled.
    - Some models are for JK2 only, so you will need the JK2 asset files for the models to display correctly.
    - The above also applies to JK3.
    - Some screenshots were taken ingame to better illustrate their ingame appearance, so if they appear
    differently in radiant do not be alarmed.
    - Any model with a _b suffix in its name was designed for use as a misc_model_static. It is otherwise identical
    to its normal counterpart, so there are no screenshots of these models.
     
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    IMPORTANT!!!!
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I spent a great deal of time compiling this library together so please leave credit if you find it useful in your projects!
    You may not redistribute these images or use them for anything other than personal use only.
     
    NO ELEMENTS OF THIS FILE CAN BE RIPPED!

    Exporting Process:
    **********************
    - Make your model.
    - Apply your texture using the 'standard' material only.
    - Make sure your texture is in a 'models' folder (e.g.: models/map_objects/ships/ship.jpg ),
    *** or alternatively name your material slots with the relative path and check "Use material name..." -- this new feature does not require a "models" folder in the path name.
    - Make sure the destination folder has 'models' in it (e.g.: models/map_objects/ships ).
    - Export it with 'Smart paths' checked and/or 'Use material name...'
    - For a static model (no animation) just leave the default value of '0' in the 'frames' field.
     
    Known Issues:
    *****************
    - None.

  16. Dragon

    Author: Wudan
     
    -1- General Information
    To put it simply, Dragon is an animation creation and editing tool for the Ghoul2 animation file format, .gla, used in both Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy (hereafter referred to as JKA). It's primary purpose is to create animations and write them in to the .gla format, which can then be merged with the existing JKA animations (or other .gla files) for use in-game with little knowledge needed.
     
    Dragon has been created on a machine utilizing an AMD Duron 950, 256 MB ram and an ATI Radeon 9200 videocard, which is a fairly low-end system by today's standards. As such, most computers should be able to handle Dragon program smoothly (but, because of Dragon's avatar system, it is possible to put too much strain on any system.)
     
    Dragon features:
    A drag-able and transparant UI
    An Avatar system
    A Console to do nifty things!
    A Complete Bone List to animate
    A Standard model
    A few example animations
    Light Saber Rendering (extremely nifty)
    Weapon Rendering (blasters rockets etc)
    A floor tile, for better animations
    Save and load system
    A blending option
    And probably much more

    -2- Installation
    The current release (0.1.0) is just a .zip file - you will need a program such as WinZip or WinRAR to extract Dragon. When you extract Dragon, it is important that you keep the folder hierarchy as it is in the .zip file. If you extract Dragon to C:\, the program will be in C:\Dragon\ All you'd need to do is navigate to that folder using Windows Explorer and double-click Dragon.exe. As of 0.1.0, Dragon has a default model that is loaded using the default Avatar, so you should see a shiny little guy, ready to animate.
     
    -3- Getting Started / Basic Usage
    Ok, you've gone through the trouble of downloading Dragon, extracting it, and running the core executeable - now what?
     
    You should see a shiny little gray dude, a box that says "BoneList" and a box that says "SliderBox". Below the gray dude is a little stick thing, made of a white, green, and blue sticks. You still with me? Cool.
    Let's focus on the BoneList, since it's basic use is pretty easy. You see a list of bones - model_root is in the middle - the active bone is dislplayed in the middle of this box. You can click on any of the bones listed above or below to switch to those bones - as you change bones you will notice that the stick thing (the white, green, and blue sticks mentioned earlier) change position and orientation.
    Ok, now you're ready to do some fun stuff. See that slider box that you've been itching to mess with? This is the heart of Dragon - You have several things in here that are noteworthy - a Reset Button (completely obliterates any posing you've done of the current bone), and two sets of 'Sliders'. The sliders on the left are the important ones - the ones on the right we'll get to in a minute.
    Go ahead and select the r_femur_YZ bone in the BoneList. Next, click on the green slider on the left - and hold your mouse down - and move your mouse left or right. You should see the gray guy's leg swing back and forth. You can now try moving the blue slider - his leg will sway from side to side.
    Getting from here to making a cool stance is actually pretty easy - it's like playing with GI Joes, or some such action figure - you just pose the model how you want it. It might take some getting used to, but you're on your way
     
    -3- Console Commands / Advanced Usage
    Dragon uses a console, designed to be somewhat familiar to people who've played a game based on the Quake3 engine. First up to bring down the console press ` (you may need to enter ASCII code 0126).
     
    Console Commands:
     
    screenshot
    Takes a screenshot - saved in the 'screenshots' folder.
     
    fnext
    Go to next frame (Hotkey: K)
    NOTE: Also used to create frames, hotkey does NOT create a frame
     
    fprev
    Go to previous frame (Hotkey: L)
     
    fdel
    Delete frame - (deletes the current frame.) After deleting, Dragon will go to either the next frame (if there is one), or the previous frame (if there is not one.)
     
    fcpy <number>
    Frame Copy - Copies a specific frame number.
     
    fcpyprev
    Frame Copy Previous - Copies the frame before this frame. If there isn't one, it does nothing.
     
    fcpynext
    Frame Copy Next - Copies the frame after this frame. If there isn't one, it does nothing.
     
    fspeed <number>
    Frame speed, if you want your frames play at a higher rate, you need a high fspeed, you want a slower rate, u need a small fspeed. Default fspeed is 20. Usage: fspeed 20
     
    fblend <number>
    This is what makes the animation smooth. Its simple to use once u get used to it. Usage: in frame 1 is a stance in frame 2 is a different stance. U want the switch between stances to be fast, so 10 frames should be right. Bring down the console and type: fblend 8. now u should have a smooth switch from stance to stance. NOTE: To prevent odd bugs from happening cycle trough the animation mannually once before clicking the preview button! Always substract the amount of frames u already have for example if u want an animation to last for 20 frames and u have 5 frames animated than its 20-5 = 15 , fblend 15. Hope that makes sense play around with it.
     
    finsa
    Inserts a new frame after the current one.
     
    finsb
    Inserts a new frame before the current one.
     
    save <name>
    Saves a .cfg file to Dragon's directory. This file describes the animation you are currently working on. You do not need to add the .cfg, Dragon does this for you. So, 'save myanim' creates myanim.cfg in the Dragon directory.
     
    load <name>
    Loads an animation over the current animation, creates the necessary number of frames (but doesn't nuke any frames - so if you load a 5 frame anim and have 10 frames, you'll have 5 frames on the end of your workspace that you probably don't need. Use fdel to nuke 'em.
     
    savegla <name>
    Saves a .gla file in Dragon's directory under your given name. Usage: savegla my_stance
     
    impframe <number> <number>
    Import frames from the loaded .gla - so that you can edit previously finished animations. The first <number> is the starting frame number for your import, and the second <number> is how many frames to import.
     
    It is recommended that you use the save and load commands to work on animations, as saving to gla and reimporting several times introduces compression artifacts - in layman's terms, your animation will be broken and you may need to re-do the entire thing. Importing from the original should be fine, as that's what the target executeable (in most cases, Jedi Academy) does anyway.
     
    NOTE: To load up a gla you have to edit an avatar file, or make a new one. More on this in the avatar section.
     
    -4- Avatar System
    The Avatar System is one of the more robust components of Dragon. With it, you can animate multiple models at once, bolt models to those model's bones, change the saber's color, and length. So, how to access this advanced functionality? Listen well, young traveller, for a world of infinite possibility awaits those with a steady hand and an open ear.
     
    Dragon, in 0.1.0b, comes with "avatar/default.cfg". (Now might be a good time to set Notepad to be the default editor for .cfg's, if it isn't already.) Opening that file shows:
     

    Wudan{{org 0.0 0.0 0.0gla _JAhumanoid.glaglm models/players/stormtrooper/model.glmskin models/players/stormtrooper/model_default.skinbolt models/weapons2/saber_dual_5/saber_dual_5.glm rhang_tag_bonecolor 0.05 0.15 0.05length 32.0}}
    The syntax is fairly similar to .shader file format, so skinners won't be at a total loss here. There are three main, must-have parts of an avatar file, the 'org', the 'gla', and the 'glm' lines. Oh, and the 'skin' line is fairly important. That said, a basic template to follow for creating new avatars would be:

    AvatarName{{org 0.0 0.0 0.0gla INSERT_NAME_OF_ANIMATION_FILEglm INSERT_NAME_OF_MODEL_FILEskin INSERT_NAME_OF_SKIN_FILE}}
    The org line has three floating point values past it. These tell Dragon where you want to draw the model at. This is useful because adding multiple models would be confusing if they all were at the '0.0 0.0 0.0' location. The gla line has a filename after it. By default it is _JAhumanoid.gla, which is a really small, single frame animation file that contains all of the skeleton file info. The glm line has a filename after it. This can be any .glm file, it is highly recommended that it be a .glm that was made to work with the gla you've selected. The skin line points to a skin file specifically created for the glm that you have selected. As of 0.0.1b, not loading a .skin file results in a crash.
     
    -5- Tutorial: Replacing Animations
    So the reason u downloaded dragon was not to read allot of crap but to get urself some animations done! So here we go! This is much easier than u think, Thanks to dragon. Its not hard either. Ive just written allot of text so it would be clear First we create our workspace. Extract /models/players/_humanoid/ (assets1.pk3) to a easy to find place. I've created:
     
    "C:/Base/Models/Players/_humanoid/"
     
    NOTE: /Base/ has to be there. if not ull get errors Check the _humanoid folder, see if u can see the .gla and the animations.cfg files. Now download GLAmerge written by Ask.
     
    Now, create your animation in Dragon. That's easier said than done, right? Well, once you have a completed animation, you can move on to the next step.
     
    However, before you export to the .gla format, there are a few things to consider - for one, have you saved the file (save command), so you can edit the original animation later? If so, excellent. save, then savegla - I think a good idea would be to automatically save when savegla is called - this could be done for the next release - any thoughts?
     
    Ok, now the tricky part is that you'll need the very first frame of animation be empty - it technically doesn't matter, but you need to understand that this buffer needs to be there because other animators, using packages like XSI and 3dsMax, weren't able to keep the skeleton in-tact when exporting to gla and merging, unless they had made the first frame of their animations the base pose, otherwise the animation could not be successfully merged in with glamerge. Dragon does maintain the skeleton's structure, but uses the same merging program as everyone else.
     
    Anyway, the tricky part is that Dragon currently has a blending system that 'wraps' around the animation - if the last frame of animation has blended bones in it, they blend with the first frame. This helps with walk cycles, but makes exporting to gla format pretty tricky. Since 'unblending' bones does not destroy their position, save your animation, then unblend each bone of the first and last frames, then finsb on frame 0 - you should now have a blank frame 0 and the rest of the frames are working fine - but, because Dragon is finicky about frames, cycle through all the frames before you export. You're ready to export - lucky you!
     
    To export, enter the console and put in

    savegla YOURFILENAME
    (do not append .gla, Dragon does this already.) Ok, you're done with Dragon, go ahead and exit (you did save, right?)
     
    In the folder where Dragon is located, you will find YOURFILENAME.gla - copy the .gla to the humanoid folder mentioned earlier. Than create a new text document. In that document type the following:

    @ECHO OFF"glamerge.exe" "_humanoid.gla" "<gla>" -oPAUSEEXIT
    This is a basic setting. replace <gla> with whatever your gla is called. i got this: @ECHO OFF "glamerge.exe" "_humanoid.gla" "my_run.gla" -o PAUSE EXIT (if u are an advanced modder, see the readme of glamerge for more options) Save the txt file as gla_merge.txt Now rename the file to gla_merge.bat (the .bat file tells the program what files to merge) now double click on the .bat file (make sure the following files are in the _humanoid directory. Glamerge, _humanoid.gla, your GLA.) It should now ask u for an output name. I suggest humanoid.gla (NOT _humanoid.gla!). Because this way u can rename the humanoid.gla or delete it when it isnt good while keeping the original (of course its just a copy of the original located in assets1.pk3). But for now lets do new.gla Now create the same directory somewhere else (no need for /base/ now) c:/models/players/_humanoid/ copy the other _humanoid files and paste them here. delete everything except Animations.cfg and new.gla Now rename new.gla to _humanoid.gla. Open up the animations.cfg with good old notepad. Now find the running animation. (U can use modview) k now its time for some small time scripting (not 2 hard dont worry) Now uve found the animation u want to replace BOTH_RUN1 12305 26 0 40 (name) (beginframe) (frames) (loop) 40(framespeed) K now. we have to leave the name the same. Now we find out what the last frame is, if u scroll down a bit ull see that ROOT is the last frame on frame: 21374 and it lasts 2 frame wich comes to a total of 21376.Now we know what to fill in the first, now for the second. How many frames is your animation? really simple if u've paid attention when gla merge was busy you shouldve noticed it counted the frames So there. I got 20 frames. Next is wether u want it too loop or not. 0 = yes, -1=no. We have a running anim so i would say 0, yes. And finally the framespeed. This one u can set whatever u like. in dragon the speed was 20 and i liked it so ill use 20 There we're done analyzing. So lets do this ! BOTH_RUN1 21376 20 0 20 Ahh yes were done! Pack /models/players/_humanoid/ in a .pk3 (the same way u would pack a skin) and place it in your base. Launch JKA. play a game and look at your new animation! NOTE: your next animation has to start on a different frame, see the last frame is 21376, plus the 20 frames u used wich would become 21396 I hope u get the point. Delete the .pk3 and yer jka is back to normal, Isnt it simple? Its only simple thanks to Dragon:The Ghoul2 Animation Tool

  19. FBX to Ghoul 2 Converter

    The FBX to Ghoul 2 converter takes an FBX model and converts it to the GLM model format used by Jedi Knight 2 and Jedi Academy. The FBX model format is widely supported by the majority of 3D modeling programs and so this will allow the largest number of modelers to create models for the Jedi Knight games. This tool allows you to convert static models as well as animated models (which use an existing GLA skeleton).
     
    If you have any questions, comments, improvements or want to report bugs, head towards the thread for this converter at http://jkhub.org/topic/2457-fbx-to-glm-converter/.
     
    Thanks

  22. GLAMerge

    This program written by Alex Shapiro (aka ASk) allows for merging 2 .gla files, something that is a must when making animations for characters in this game. I take absolutely no credit for this, just uploading since the original authors website is no longer in existence and strongly feel that it is something that cannot be forgotten about.

    ============================= Instructions ==============================
     
    ****************** BACKUP FILES BEFORE USING THIS PROGRAM ****************
     
    1) Put the 2 .gla files into the same directory as the program
    User .gla file must contain the 'base' pose (the DaVinci pose) as first frame, it will be ignored during merge.
     
    2) Invoke the program as "glamerge.exe firstfile secondfile [-o]|[-l]"
     
    - If invoked in this format, 2 user .gla's may be merged into 1.
    - If invoked in "glamerge.exe file" format, _humanoid.gla from the current dir is used as first file.
    - The optional -l switch makes the program dump the bone data (hierarchy) from both gla files, then quit.
    - The optional -o switch makes the program eliminate any redundant bone data (producing .gla files comparable to the ones produced with carcass.
    - If both -o and -l are specified, the second of two (in the order they are specified) will be ignored
     
     
    - The program rearranges the bones in the correct order, so as long as the hierarchy/origins are the same, it should work
    3) Enter the name of output file
     
    4) Add your animations to animations.cfg file
     
    5) Enjoy

  23. DEvaheb

    This was originally by Magic Interface, however there are no physical means to contact him. (This is just a re-mirror of this: http://eliteforce2.filefront.com/file/DEvahebzip;946#Download)
     
    So what is this? It converts .IBI -> .txt, effectively serving as a means to decompile an ICARUS script. It's primitive but works for some basic scripts. Note that some constants will not function properly.
     
    Original Description:
    Created by Joris "Interface" de Gruyter.
    This Tool only decompiles scripts.
     
    This tool can be attached to the IBI format in Windows.
    If you don't have any program assigned to IBI files yet,
    double-click on an IBI file. It will prompt you to give it a
    program. Just select the DEhaveb program and press
    "ok". (it will not appear in the program list, you will have
    to press "other" or "browse" depending on your operating
    system) You're all set now. All IBI files will have the
    "DE"-icon, and if you double-click on them, they will
    open up in DEvaheb.
