EXE or ZIP files?

Some of you have wondered whether to use the EXE or the ZIP files. Well, they both contain the same files, just the EXE makes it alittle easier for Windows users to install the program and update the plugins.

So which one should you use? The choice is up to you - for Windows users I would recommend that you use the EXE, especially for installing the plugins.

Thats all guys!

Finally! GE 0.94 Released

Well I finally completed the last of the plugin conversions and testing with the latest version of Game Extractor - 0.94. This version was a complete re-write from scratch for better OO structuring, and also came with a bunch of improvements such as file buffers for fast and reliable reading/writing, and more accurate detection of file format plugins. A more complete "changes" list can be found on the website.... read more

GE 0.822 Re-Release (with EXE)

Hi guys,

Due to an error in release, the GameExtractor 0.822 package did not include the *.exe or *.bat files that should have been included. The program would still have run correctly and fully if you had followed the instructions in the readme, but for everyone else I have re-released the package with the EXE files included. Sorry for the trouble.

On a side issue: I have been furiously testing Game Extractor 0.9x and converting all the plugins into the new format - so far it is looking very good and should be released fairly soon. Keep a watch out here and on the website for release information.... read more

GE 0.822 Released

The last version of the 0.8x series has been made available here. This version is stable, but the plugins and program files will not be updated if there are any problems. This download should be considered historical, as the newer 0.9x series will be uploaded as soon as I finish converting the plugins over.

Thanks guys.
