IMG Viewer is a small tool which is capable of displaying the IMG files of W:A, WWP and W2 (W2 has not been tested, but the code for handling W2 images has been written). It was programmed by using only the file format information given on this wiki, especially the decompressing algorithm written by Pisto. The related articles are linked at the bottom.

Main Features

  • Displaying IMG files and their settings including the palette
  • Converting IMG files to more common file formats like BMP, PNG and JPEG

A shell integration for picture previews in the Windows Explorer was available in 1.1.5.0 but has been cut from 1.1.6.0 because it didn't work correctly on most computers.

Project State

The Worms.NET CodePlex project from which this tool originates has been deleted, the tools themselves were migrated to the new Syroot.Worms .NET library on GitHub. However, the tools are not under development anymore and might be recreated in the future, on top of the new library.
