Yeah, the Division's approach is certainly something new. But you probably won't get far without looking at the game's disassembly, because most of the per-file info is encoded in a way that's very hard to deduce from looking at it in a hex editor or something like that.

In compressed part sdftoc files contains variable-length integers and bit fields. .mmb files, and some other files use similar pronciple.
It is not easy to describe, so I posted the source code.

I haven't seen any variable length integers in MMB files.

Attempting to do this but I cant. Can someone just put all the textures into png format and post a zip file containing them?

Did anyone manage to extract the models for this game? I managed to get as far as pulling out skeletons. It's just after the mesh names, there's weird, unknown data. I've no idea how to read that correctly.

The format is really complex, you'll have to upload many more samples than just that if someone were to look at this further.

I made a lot of progress with Meshes today thanks to chrrox. However, I suspect the files provided to me are infact corrupt (file size mis-match). Could someone please upload samples which aren't corrupt?

Cheers.

Thank you!

However, that specific pistol I loaded does not match the fileSize specified in the header. So I suspect the files aren't actually corrupt then. Could be just a bug in the importer code or a bug in the unpacker. Because the code should definitely work. Will investigate this later.

Regards.

Great work. Are you going to share the import plugin after it's done by any chance?

Yep, it's a work in progress. Almost complete, some small bugs to fix and testing.
