I'm getting an 0xc0000142 error. Has this been tested with Windows 10, BTW? I'm interested in trying to dump the contents of the game archives to see what cut content might be lurking there, and also I'm extremely interested in the possibility of modding the PC version by making it load files from outside the pak files first. I feel the game has huge modding potential.

Thanks. There is some pretty interesting stuff in here. What appears to be a lot of cutscene remnants, unused music, and a lot of TimeSplitters 2 files, including music, voice acting, and files for every single level. Which I find... strange. Wonder whether it would be possible to jerry rig the TimeSplitters 2 "demo" to be able to play all the missions?

It's a pity the extractor has to dump everything, because I'd like to be able to just dump specific archives. Still, better than nothing. I guess the problem this presents, though, is the game's use of compiled script files and the likely difficulty making it read outside pak files first.

Hey m0xf,

The tool works great and i see all of the extracted assets but i fear some stuff is missing,

extracted\objects\characters\cast contains all the main characters model files, but from what i see the .skinm files are not there, and i believe they actually store the mesh data while .skin stores the skeleton and general info, any idea why this happens?

I have noticed it doesn't seem to be dumping all the files in certain circumstances. For example, in my second dump attempt, the various bik2 video files were missing.

Do you have any .skinm files inside the objects/characters/cast folder? They all seem to be missing for me, unless i am misunderstanding the model format so far

I tested the XML decompiler tool people have been using for Prey, but it unfortunately doesn't work. Dambuster must've made some changes, I assume. It's a pity pretty much zero effort has gone into modding Homefront: TR because the game would greatly benefit from it. Meanwhile Prey already has mods.

I have just the regular steam version of this game and this extractor is not working for me. Any suggestions on how to make it work? Thank you in advance for any help.
I think it probably doesn't work because a month or so after the PLAZA release, a hotfix exe patch was released.

The extractor has been broken since the game's April 2017 exe update. Any chance you'll update the extractor?

I really wish someone would make a repacking tool, too, but that's probably a pipe dream.

Game use brotli compression. I made new decryption tool.
Now it not required game exe and can process single .pak file.

To repack archive (or use normal zip in game) you need to patch game exe, becouse pak files are signed.
