I have already read XeNTaX's Exploring File Formats guide, but I want to learn more. Such as writing and unpacker for extracting the data in the game archive, videos on people just exploring a game archive file, finding out how the compression was done for a game archive using a dissembler, etc.

PLEASE HELP

There are not any tutorials about that. :p

The only way is to see sources of the other people and learn from it. Many source code packs are available here on forum or on github. Just search for it, you can start here viewforum.php?f=32.

I'm curious as well, I don't see people posting programming tuts about these sort of things. Only guides I see are generic on how to handle integers, binary and text data.

Hi, i started with this awesome dude : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ORnfYn ... eL4fBI1Z7k

He have a nice video tutorials series about reading a binary 3D mesh file with maxscript on 3ds max, it's a good starting point i guess.
Also i've also this lack of "ressources" problem, you need to read a lot about how actually you can make binary files in C++, how to parse files etc...
How you store Vertex buffer inside a file and many stuffs related to creating game assets etc.

Hope it can help !
