where do the filenames come from and is there a possibility to update them by yourself easily? The file itself is plain text, but I honestly have no idea where the file names come from.

Can somebody please expand on this? I wish to update the file list because there are still a lot of things missing and the game has been updated significantly since.

Okaaaaay... It's been too silent here
The Crew is temporarily free on Uplay, so... I got it and you know... Why is this topic so silent? No one has imported the map, which is strange, because the map is AMAZING!

Indeed, if wed know how to perform that "game memory" to extract full list and updated would be great, anyone knows how?
So many of us can help, just give us clue as to how to perform it, tools/utilities, etc etc etc

cheers

I am so ready and so willing to help, in making the new list, fully if possible.
I just would like those with knowledge, to point me in the right direction as to how one can perform proper memory dump of the game and how do you view the list names and analyze the dump.

For instance, if I dump the game memory data using task manager while the game is running, it dumps over 3GB, and then I try to analyze it with WinDbg, but no matter what commands I throw at it, it can not load symbols in order to open the dump data.
Is there another step I am missing?
Is anyone willing to help and point in to the right direction?
Tools utilities software anything, sooooooo many of us can help and contribute, I get that the forum has a bad reputation with begging and annoying users with very bad requests, and get ignored for good reason.
But id really like to genuinely help, I am not a coder programmer etc etc, but if pointed in the right direction, miracles can happen.

If by some reason no one wants to share the info publicly, PM can always be used, please and thank you, lets communicate and make things work.

cheers

hi there is list all files in game it in data_win32/Projects/FileNames.list i don't if got this file list in your game, there only 19 car sounds files i have not found bikes or all other car sounds or 4x4 monster truck sounds as so many cars in this game must using same sounds, i edit the engine sound Audiodope they sound better or take sounds out other car games add them u hear on my side but don't if hear on your side.
For life of me i don't if dat unpacker will find txt files as can't find car engine sound txt or other game setting if they in game must be xbt they texture files, when open sound file in Audiodope they sound so sweet but soon back in game they sound crap like game putting dull mute on files or there blocker on how good game sound can be, they so clear but not best record of sounds lot pops and crackles in files i don't if Audiodope doing to sounds but they not best like other games engines sounds. sum of files same as codemasters grid dev.xml is same different company but same file.
I find if use FsbExtractor.exe not as good as using fmod_extr.exe seem do sounds better for fsb files.just wish way repack the fsb files and repack the dat files so work in game better.
I made mod folder in my document/the crew seem make files work in game.
