Title: WinMPQ -- "Run-time error '6':  Overflow"
Post by Zifnab on May 27th, 2005, 2:29am i'm using WinMPQ to try to view the files in "Patch.MPQ" in my worldofwarcraft/data directory, but everytime I try to open Patch.MPQ up with WinMPQ I get the error "Run-time error '6':  Overflow"

I can only assume this occurs because the list that it is trying to generate is too large for the program to handle.  

Is there any way to tell it to only show me the files in /FrameXML, or some other kind of workaround to still view/extract the files from the patch.mpq?

Much thanks for anyone that cares to help :)

PS.  I was able to successfully view the files in "interface.mpq" and extract them to a separate folder, so I don't think i'm doing anything wrong.

Again, thanks for any help that is available.

edit:  I think i might've posted this on the wrong forum, i'm going to repost it on the programming/developing forum, so go there to reply :)

Actually, I think this forum is better for this question...

I belive that this is indeed due to the MPQ size... How big is this file? It could possibly work if you set the filter to /FrameXML before loading the MPQ, but I think it still will cause overflow errors due to the huge filesize...

I suppose the only thing you can do is to try what I said above, or find a new MPQ-program.... :-\

I'm not sure if it can be fixed either - it could be due to Visual Basic...

I fixed the program... I sent an email to shadow flare about it but never heard back.
You can get my fix here
