Saints of Virtue - PC (.WRS, ACKNEX)

Post by Idioteche »

Hey guys, I recently started playing this creepy religious game called Saints of Virtue. I was interested in unpacking the levels, but I'm not sure how to go about doing so. I tried gobread, since it is listed as having support for .WRS files. However, gobread fails to recognize the file type, even when I set it manually with the proper command. I assume this is because the .WRS support was written for more modern games (Bagger Simulator), and the game I'm trying to unpack is from 1999. I looked into the version numbers of ACKNEX, and going by the release date of the game is was probably developed using version 3 from 1997, although I could be wrong. I tried to find a distribution of ACKNEX-3, but the website hosting the file no longer allows it to be downloaded. (Throws a 404, here's the link - http://server.conitec.net/down/a3.zip)

Here are the files I'm trying to unpack:

If anyone could help me out, I'd really appreciate it. :D

Awesome dude, it works! Lots of thanks!

I also have another question; how would I go about recreating a .wrs file with newly modified files? I tried repacking it with the new ones as a smaller size, but the game just crashes.
