Extended extension set for Avast!
« on: June 14, 2004, 09:10:26 PM »
What You (other users) use to extend Avast! standard extension set:

I myself use these to extend basic set  ;):

AX,ACM,BPL,CNV,DRV,FLT,FON,HTA,IEC,IME,MOD,OLB,PYD,Q3X,QTS,QTX,RLL,RPV,TLB,TPL,TSK,TSP,WPC,X32,XLL,XRS

maybe we can ask Alwil to add in future Avast! version new option "advanced extension set" under "standard extension" set :)

Do you happen to have some descriptions of them? I know only about 10 of them from memory, and am lazy to look up the other ones ;D
I think that if they're relevant ("executable"), they may simply be included in the standard set. (What do you think, Vlk?)

After quick flyover i recognized only AX,ACM and MOD. First two are codec libraries and MOD is a Unreal Engine Modification Package (Installer for game modifications).

wrong in our case we speak about Windows NT Non-Win16 application shell, Implementing DOS Support for Windows DLL's located in:
c:\%WINDIR%\system32\winoldap.mod

btw. mod was/is also audio file (amiga tracker format etc)

these Unreal Modification Package installer files you speak about are so called Umods

Unreal Tournament
.umod
Unreal Tournament 2003
.u2mod
Unreal Tournament 2004
.u4mod
