Inside the file we can see
RAFS > G r amzl
Maybe is some LZMA?

Rick have already made an unpacker, although it works only with little endian (PC), the xbox files are the same with the exception of Big Endian.

That's not true, my SFAR handling code detects endianness appropriately. If it's actually not working, please let me know and/or provide cuts.

Don't ask me about localization tools; if you don't have the resources to develop them yourself you don't need them.

And what about a PackSFXArchive? I'd like to repack the DLC in order to delete the unused bik movies and lang files that I don't use.

Compiled the latest commit (rev40) still throwing "NotImplementedException" when tries to find out the Compression Scheme. This are 2 small .sfar archives with 360s endianness.

Ah yeah, I don't have LZX implemented. PC files only use LZMA. I'll look into it.

Is SFAR an acronym for SFx ARchive?

Most likely, "SFX" -- internal project name for Mass Effect.

Rick, are you working on packing support? Because if so, I wouldn't like to the the same work over again. And you're much more familiar with the file formats, than I am.

Sorry about the misunderstanding i should have clarify that i had endian problems i had was with the very first commits, and now only the lzx appears to be problem.
