welcome to the creators'community ;)

The best way to use makeobj on windows is to create .bat command file. Copy these texts in txt files which you will save as ****.bat . If you put these files in the same folder as makeobj.exe so you'll just have to use .bat file to use makeobj's corresponding commands.

makeobj pak128 2>err.txt
Will compile dat files (here for pak128 but you can change) and write errors which can occur in err.txt

makeobj MERGE name.pak *.pak
Merge ALL present pak files in the folder into "name.pak" (change the name after).

makeobj EXTRACT
Inverse of Merge command, extract single pak files from a merged one.

So here are the most used command, normally you won't have to use other ones.
