Hello,
Here is a new tool to view the OPTs: Xwa Opt Showcase.

When the tool starts you will be asked to select an OPT file.
To open another OPT, press O.
To generate a video, press the Return key. The video is saved in the "Screenshots" folder.
To stop the animation, press the Spacebar.
To rotate the model, use Mouse Left.
To zoom, use Mouse Wheel.
To change the FOV, use Shift+Wheel.
To rotate the light, use Mouse Right.
To change the light brightness, use Control+Wheel.
To restart, press F9.
To switch to fullscreen, press F11.
To hide the time, press F12.
To exit the tool, you can press the Q key.

Small request, could you change the Esc key from Esc to something else? Q or regular ALT+F4?

Thing is, due to my bad eyes I use windows magnifier alot and WIN+Esc deactivates it - this conflicts with the Showcase tool, causing me to accidentally close that one, as well.
