I've been having the exact same problem. I've not a clue why it won't work even as instructed with the readme.

Fear 2 Tools - Batch command

Edit - kicking myself here - TEXConverter.exe -batch -tex ".\" ".\DDS\" -d

Converted all tex files to DDS from fear2, wasn't using the correct command line for the bat file. :)

I'm trying to use these tools on Condemned2 (same engine) but no luck...

Unfortunately, it also looks like there still is no model converter-importer/exporter either (for either game)

The download link for these tools is offline of course.

Does anyone have a working download link for these or other FEAR 2 tools?

Sorry for a possible necro but how did you get the Arch Extractor working? Everytime I double click it it doesn't do anything, and using command prompt says its not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

it's does 101% working :)

1. unpack the arch01's
2. create a directory in root gamedir with the full name of the arch: "Layer02.Arch01"
3. unpack the BNDLs inside with deletion:
h:\FEAR2GOG\Layer02.Arch01\Worlds\sp\m01_penthouse>BndlExtractor.exe -batch ".\"
".\" -d

4. move all the files from within h:\FEAR2GOG\Layer02.Arch01\Worlds\sp\m01_penthouse into root of the arch's dir:
H:\FEAR2GOG\Layer02.Arch01\Worlds\sp\m01_penthouse\*.* > H:\FEAR2GOG\Layer02.Arch01

5. in contrast, move all the *.wld*, *.gamedb, *.lvbndl (files only) etc that you see now inside H:\FEAR2GOG\Layer02.Arch01
and move them into H:\FEAR2GOG\Layer02.Arch01\Worlds\sp\m01_penthouse\*

known bugs: videos are not working - you will see the displays are gray and so are any intro scenes
many game events don't work: for example in the first level the elevator doesn't open
I think these bugs can be fixed by testing and finding the correct bndl file that contains the events/videos
for example the event for the elevator in the first level is located in m01_penthouse_0001.bndl
and the texture flicker bug is fixed with m01_penthouse_0028.bndl

this is not very practical for modding, going over 100's of files every time to fix one problem at a time
I think for texture modding it's best to use external tool like uMod or TexMod and paint a good layer of your own shaders with reshade
extracting BNDL only necessary for modding the rest of the game, for example I used it to remove the grapple from the abomination monsters

Is there anyway to extract sounds with correct sound filenames from the SoundDB.gamedb?

I have the bms script here for sounds.

Code: Select all

# FEAR 2 .snd extractor
# names may be in Game\database_sound\SoundDB.gamedb
get BASE_NAME basename
get FILE_SIZE asize
get DUMMY long
get ENTRIES long
get DATA_OFFSET long
set I long 0
#extract data directly, ignoring headers
  goto OFFSET
  get SIZE long
  math SIZE += 0x08
  string NAME p= "%s__%04i.snd" BASE_NAME I
  math OFFSET += SIZE
  math I += 1
# failed attempt to extract in header order
# some files don't seem to have proper pointers
#for I = 0 < ENTRIES
#  get ID long
#  get ENTRY_OFFSET long
#  savepos CURRENT
#  get SUBFILES long
#  math ENTRY_OFFSET += 0x10
#  for J = 0 < SUBFILES
#    #there is a mini header but is also in the extracted file
#    math ENTRY_OFFSET += 0x18
#    goto ENTRY_OFFSET
#    get OFFSET long
#    math ENTRY_OFFSET += 0x08
#    goto OFFSET
#    get SIZE long
#    math SIZE += 0x08
#    string NAME p= "%s__%03i_%02i.snd" BASE_NAME I J
#    print "EN=%ENTRY_OFFSET|h%, OFF=%OFFSET|h% SZ=%SIZE|h%"
#  next J
#  goto CURRENT
#next I
