Almost six years after the last official release, Open Source SHP Builder 3.37 is now available for download at Project Perfect Mod. This version adds features such as Mirror, Flip, a new Resize method, an auto-installer/update/uninstaller to make the distribution of the beta versions easier and fixes several bugs reported by the community. OS SHP Builder has became a reliable tool to edit graphics from Tiberian Dawn, Red Alert 1, Tiberian Sun, Red Alert 2 and also OpenRA.

It's important to mention that the installer has changed in this version and it may require internet connection in the first run (although there are means to avoid it). The installer was not tested with Windows 8, but it fails, don't worry: it can be installed without installer. Information on how to do that is available at the OS SHP Builder section at Project Perfect Mod. Here's the changelog:

- 3.37
- revisions by Banshee, contributions from Zaaz
- Added: Mirror and Flip: You can mirror and flip frames at Tools -> Image Rotation.
- Added: You may now enable or disable the preview of brush operations at View -> Preview Brush. It is enabled by default.
- Added: You may now enable or disable the ability of the program of auto-detecting SHP type, game and palette at Options -> AutoSelect SHP Type. It is enabled by default.
- Added: MS Paint resize mode at Edit -> Resize. It resizes the image using windows API, like what MS Paint does.
- Added: A new option at Preferences that lets you save shadow frames using compression 1 to prevent issues with big sized units and animations.
- Added: Installer is now inside the program. This means that any beta version of OS SHP Builder will come with an installer that will always download you the latest version of the program. You must be connected to the internet to use it.
- Added: Auto Update at the Help menu. It will always download you the latest version of the program straight from the SVN. You must be connected to the internet to use it.
- Added: Uninstaller is also inside the program and in a separate link.
- Updated: Community links were updated.
- Updated: The default settings now forces different palettes for each situation instead of unittem.pal for everyone.
- Updated: The program will use your theme now.
- Bug Fix: Fixes issues when saving SHP (TD) files. They are now 100% reliable and read by XCC Mixer and other programs. (Thanks Zaaz)
- Bug Fix: Fixes issues when saving the radar color from SHP (TS) files. FinalSun will now display SHP (TS) overlays saved with OS SHP Builder. (Thanks ApolloTD and Zaaz)
- Bug Fix: Images with dimensions bigger than 500 pixel may now be resized.
- Bug Fix: Zoom will no longer go out of bounds. It will always be between 1 and 32.
- Bug Fix: Palette Conversion no longer mess up with colours at the remappable range if it is not an unit.

I recommend everyone to update your OS SHP Builder for this version. You can download it HERE. Support for this tool is available at HERE.

OS SHP Builder has a SVN Browser HERE. You can also download the latest content of the SVN, by using a an SVN client, such as Tortoise SVN, right clicking a directory, clicking in Checkout and setting URL to svn://svn.ppmsite.com/shp_builder

If you have a site, feel free to mirror it without asking for permision. You can also play with its source code and add your own features on the program. Just credit myself and Stucuk for the program. Enjoy it!
