    The asset_packer's help says that it can read a JSON file for ignore lists and ordering info. But there is absolutely no information about how the JSON should be. I kind of need this to use ignore lists in order to create clean .pak files straight from git folders for example.

    D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Starbound\win32>asset_packer -help
    asset_packer: Packs asset folder into a starbound .pak file
    Command Line Usage: asset_packer [-help] [-version] [-c <configFile>] [-s] [-v] <assets folder path> <output filename>
      -help - Show help text
      -version      - Print version info
      -c <configFile>       - JSON file with ignore lists and ordering info
      -s    - Enable server mode
      -v    - Verbose, list each file added
      <assets folder path>  - Path to the assets to be packed
      <output filename>     - Output pak file
    D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Starbound\win32>asset_packer -version
    Starbound Version 1.4.3 (windows i386)
    Source Identifier - 126e56ae96dd14978b45ca472fb862fe7d005d17
    Another things:
    Verbose -v doesn't seems to do anything.
    What server mode -s supposed to do? Doesn't seems to do anything either.
    There isn't any 64-bit asset_packer and asset_unpacker for Windows. I'm pretty sure there was in the past.

    This is unrelated to my issue. I don't have any issues using the command prompt. This isn't a fix nor a workaround.
    My issue is still the same even with that thing because it's just a GUI for the tools and doesn't help providing me any info on what the JSON config file should be.
