"good tool for making custom binary/GDF dlls for games."

Not sure is this the right place to ask.....

But what does the GDF actually do.

Thanks

Print Folders v2.51b

Good program to get file list. Similar to cmd but with this program is much more organized and has some great options like: included subfolders, file names, file extensions and others advanced options.

The attachment include 32 and 64 Bit versions. Is a freeware but you can buy if you wish.

Resource Hacker

With Resource Hacker you can change Game.icos direct in Game Folder and keep them after Conversion.
The Program saves automatic the Original Game.exe so you can easy rechange it if there are Problems.
