Parsing NBT format in AutoIt

Recommended Posts


Hello :), I am want to parse a file's data which uses NBT format to store information, If you don't know anything about it, Here are some good reads:

A nice read on Codeplex

A little not nice read on Wiki.vg

A redirect from wikipedia - Minecraft wiki


I can see the data inside the file in a unorganized way using a Hex Editor, I just need a little push (even the littlest push), I don't know where to start :(, Here is an example NBT dat file for you to experiment with:  parse this.dat (Its uncompressed)

Thanks in Advance, TD :)


P.S for mods: Hey! This is not game automation, I want to use this file format to store info & play around with it :)
