Usage

To (de)compile, drag and drop files onto the corresponding buttons of the form. With the checkboxes, you can toggle...
  • Hooking. It doesn't hurt to leave this on by default.
  • Displaying the log. This is useful for diagnosing errors.
  • Disassembling. Off by default, useful for reverse engineers when a script fails to (de)compile.
  • Overwriting. When on, the output will look something like script.bf rather than script.bf.flow.bf therefore overwriting any file with that name that may already exist.
  • SumBits is enabled by default when decompiling. This simplifies mathematical expressions automatically.
