I've uploaded a minor update to my Jade Empire data file search tool (JEFindRes v0.2.0a), see the first post in this thread for a download link.
Version v0.2 has the Txb2Tga converter integrated, allowing it to automatically convert any TXB files it extracts to TGA format if you check a checkbox.
This version should also make using wildcard characters (*) in the file name (resref) part of the search string more reliable. It now works like wildcards usually do in a search:
No wildcard characters used
: Only files whose name exactly
matches what you type will be found.
No file extension set
: Files of any type matching the name you type in will be found.
Wildcards at the beginning and/or end of search string
: Your search string can be found anywhere within the filename.
Wildcards inside the search string
: Allow any (or none) characters to exist in that position of the file name and only match the rest of what you type.
