I don't have any of my old work on the .dat format, but i remember zlib is used for the compression, and that files can appear in chunks inside the .dat archive

Seeing as ive played this game before i thought it jump in and take a look at the topic.
Well i no Longer have the game and im assuming that anyone else who has posted on here doesnt have it either...
But fast internet connection or not... 8 gig is bloody HUUUUGE...No1s gonna download that unless they genuinly want to play the game
U can always use the file cutter on the Xentax site to cut up a file for us to analyze.

it's similar to the AC2 format, and almost exactly, if not exactly, the same as the ddo format

i don't have any more of my old analysis, but here's a link to some old code i wrote for it, no idea if it still works or not, and i know some of this is wrong, but it's enough to get someone started

This does not look like an archive.
