Descent Manager VPView32

VPView32, or simply "VPView", is a VP-viewing program coded by Heiko Herrmann for Volition, Inc.

It is a part of the Descent Manager Tools (DMTOOLS) suite, and there have been at least two notable versions of it. Version 1 splash screen displays an SF Dragon being fired upon, and only supports FreeSpace VP files. Later versions support Red Faction and Summoner archives as well, and adds characters from other Volition games to the image.

VPView supports hierarchical viewing of the VP file structure, extraction of files, and active preview of .ANI, .PCX, and .WAV files. The tool has been the de facto VP viewer for years, although it is no longer supported by the original developers.

Getting VPView32

Both versions of VPView32, as well as other tools from the DMTOOLS FSKit can still be found on the Descent network site and will be available soon on FreeSpaceMods.
