Observer Description

Observer is a useful plug-in that you can integrate with FAR Manager, to extend its functionality and open various file containers.

The program is a file viewer and manager that allows you to explore the folders on your system, open files, plus edit them. With this plug-in you may also open and extract files from various containers.

Observer is capable of integrating new functions into FAR Manager, allowing it to open and extract the contents of various types of file containers.

The plug-in enables it to open installation packages, CDs/DVDs/Blu-rays, virtual disk images, MIME or even containers used in certain games.

The supported formats include NSIS, MSI or Wise installer packages, ISO images, NRG, BIN, MDF or ISZ images.

The plug-in facilitates the extraction of files from virtual disk images, such as VMDK (VMware), VDI (Virtual Box), VHD (Microsoft Virtual PC) or XVA (Xen Virtual Appliance).

Additional formats are MIME containers (*.eml, *.mht), Microsoft Outlook databases (*.pst), MBox containers or The Bat! databases (*.tbb). You may even open embedded files from PDFs or WCX modules from Total Commander.

You can also open special types of containers that are usually used for storing files for various PC games.

Some format examples are CAT, PCK, PBD, PBB, VP (Volition Pack V2), BIG, SGA (used by Relic), GCF, WAD, XZP, PAK, BSP, VBSP (Steam) or MoPaQ (used by Blizzard).

The plug-in is easy to integrate with FAR Manager: all you need to do is simply copy the containing folder inside FAR Manager’s installation directory. The functions can be accessed from within the program, from the Plugin menu.

You need to select the container you wish to open simply by clicking on it, then use one of the Observer’s functions to access it.

The plug-in enables you to quickly open the files or use the ‘Open As…’ tool if the containers are saved as a supported format, but with a different extension.
