Mafia Definitive Edition .sds files

Post by Digital X » Fri Sep 25, 2020 11:37 pm

I understand it is very early days for this game, but was curious about the .sds files.

Mafia 2 and 3 have extractors but upon trying Mafia 3 extractor it crashed upon opening the .sds file, I assume because the specific version of .sds is too new? I know Mafia DE uses an upgraded version of the Mafia 3 engine, so thought it was worth a shot. All I can find and edit at the moment are values.

I am completely new to Mafia modding but my expertise lies in Spintires/Mudrunner, just looking to get my foot in the door here.

I guess we will be waiting a while?

Specification of Mafia DE SDS is almost same at the first blush. It's uses OODLE compression algorithm instead ZLIB in previous titles, and additional data in 96 bytes at the end of Compressed Blocks Headers. So it's no big problem to update extraction tools for their authors.

Yeah, you're right

There is a slight problem with loading the some resources like as Textures, SoundBanks and some SDS's, but in general it almost works :)

You're the creator of this I assume? If so, huge thanks! This is exactly what I am looking for.

Also, I am pretty familar with Unity Asset Bundle Extractor, would this work the same way? As in we can choose a texture in the Resource Explorer, replace with our own, and pack it back up?

Thanks, for me at least, the nginx web server throws up a 403 forbidden error. However Mirror 2 works fine. May just be my end.

Is there a tutorial of how to edit/replace the files?

In sds/generic/bolt_ace there is a lot of hex with text on the side, this is beyond me.

I have found the starting up sound, how would I go about replacing it?

I feel so bad for asking this, I just don't have the foggiest what I am doing with most of these files.

EDIT: On the beer case.dds I see "replace resource", Once I have chosen a texture what would I do then so the game can read it? In the extractor it shows 64x64 which is extremely small. My Commodore 64 has more resolution lol.
