|Supported W:A version:||All versions|
WormKit is an extension framework for Worms Armageddon, which consists of a module loader, and a set of modules, each with a different purpose.
There are currently several publicly released WormKit modules, out of which 4 come with the default WormKit distribution. They are:
- WormNAT2 - allows hosting games even if you're behind a router or firewall;
- FileOverride - override files from the CD-ROM with your versions;
- AntiKeyboardHook - stop Worms from disabling Alt+Tab / Win+... keyboard combinations.
- SoundCardSelect - choose the soundcard W:A should use for sound output.
WormKit was first released on April 5, 2006. Since its release, no significant changes or additions were made to the framework (with the exception of ReplayShark). There was some work on additional modules, including an anti-cheating system (wkWormisign) and a Fiddler-like scripted game engine add-on (wkMagic) - however, none reached a development phase mature enough to be released, and thus the ideas were dropped.
There is a custom WormKit version which doesn't require WormKit.exe to load modules. Read more
