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.
I just want to decompress it :D the game loads other uncompressed archives fine but not for this one. I tried the new disrupt-r14 but it still crashes on Continue Game :[ it's strange that no matter does game load the rebuilt file or not, the unpacker still be able to extract that file so I think that issue is caused by the game :cry:

Rick, I get

Code: Select all

Unhandled Exception: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: could not find an acceptable version of XnaNative installed to use

   at XCompression.XnaNative.Load(BaseContext context)
   at XCompression.BaseContext..ctor()
   at XCompression.DecompressionContext..ctor(UInt32 windowSize, UInt32 chunkSize)
   at Gibbed.Disrupt.FileFormats.Big.EntryDecompression.DecompressXMemCompress(Entry entry, Stream input, Stream output)

   at Gibbed.Disrupt.FileFormats.Big.EntryDecompression.Decompress(Entry entry, Stream input, Stream output)
   at Gibbed.Disrupt.Unpack.Program.Main(String[] args)
how can I fix this? I've tried to copy fat+dat into "bin" folder and extract right there, but get the same exception.

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

How do you do it?

I modify Watch Dogs.xml:

Code: Select all

<install_location>
	<action type="path">D:\Watch_Dogs</action>
</install_location>
run RebuildFileLists.exe and generated files (28133/310337 (9%))
What next? How I can upgrade this result?
