Creating a flame pack from a folder

Time Needed : 30 minutes

With the newer versions of JWildfire you can make flame packs easily by clicking the A button when you have a bunch of flames loaded. This will save them all into one file which you can load back at a later date and there youll have all your flames. But what if you have a folder of flames saved and you want to combine them all into one flame pack? You could load them all into JWildfire and hit the A button, but that takes time and there's an easier way. It takes a bit of setting up to begin with, but once done, you'll be able to create flame packs in no time.
