i don't have the game yet, so to those with the game, to what extent can we expect to modify the game?

i assume uplay will have to be hacked off( i can live with that)
Formats largely same as Far Cry 3. Disrupt engine (Watch_Dogs) largely based on Dunia 2 (Far Cry 3).

Don't ask me about localization tools; if you don't have the resources to develop them yourself you don't need them.

Additional note: game will load patch.fat/patch.dat if it is present and override content as expected, just like Far Cry 3, even though it's not used yet.

I don't see any reason for it not to work but I haven't done any testing as I don't own the 360 version.

No for both. GEOM format is actually new to Disrupt, Dunia 2 had a different format (or version). XBT is same but it's simple enough that I never wrote tools for it.

@Rick
I've a problem while unpacking files says :

Code: Select all

So don't rebuild the absurdly large archives? Why would you do that?

Edit: I did just fix a bug with packing though, that probably caused your issue. Really though, you shouldn't be repacking that archive.

Yes? It's not as if I can pull all of the filenames out of my own ass.
