Try to repack from command line, not with drag&drop.
You tried this with original files? Because one of my friend just unpacked and repacked a viv file, and the game worked fine.
Latest version of Rick's tool: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4953836/RickVisceral110423.zip (available for a couple of weeks)
means that the command lines?Sorry but I learned to move alone in this tool.Yes I tried with the original file of the game without mod.Gives black screen when booting.

teach me how to do it with command line? :!: Thanks for help

Command line: Start menu -> Run -> cmd -> Enter

Into command line: Gibbed.Visceral.BigPack.exe outputbig inputDIR
outputbig - the new viv file
inputDIR - the name of the folder, where the unpacked files are

Hey guys, i need a great help.
I extract the bigfile2.viv (ps3). Inside the folder (text_assets/text) I found the text files.
I used the tool Gibbed.Visceral.StrUnpack in the file 51d3d3e4.str (size 192kb)
After extracting, i found a folder and inside that folder the file @archive.xml and the folder (LH2). Inside the folder (LH2) there is a file 0000_deadspace2_global.en.lh2 (size 344kb).
Without modifying the file 0000_deadspace2_global.en.lh2 (size 344kb) I used the tool Gibbed.Visceral.StrPack and pack the folder with files to str, but the file 51d3d3e4.str was the same size then *HL2 (344kb). How do I get the file 51d3d3e4.str with the same size as the original (192kb)? :roll:
I would translate the dialogue in the game for my language, but with this trouble by creating the File Bigfile2.viv the PS3 is not start the game Dead Space 2 (Black screen). :(
Thanks and sorry my bad english.

You can't, The gibbed tool can't recompress. Also, as far as I know, the tool compatible with the console files, but can create pc compatible str files, only. So the problem is not the new size of the str file, I think, but the non compatible str file.

You have to download all resource through SVN. But the compiled latest version already available from this topic.

I can extract the SNU files from DAT with the RickVisceral110423 tool from this thread, but how can I convert/play them after? :(

Is there any way to view the text from the game like the ingame text logs you can pick up from corpses etc, since some of the logs are not audio? I would like to see if there are any hidden/ones that I missed when playing

thanks for any help :(
