Secret Files 3 - Archimedes Code *.SPR Encryption Key

Post by Delacroix » Mon Sep 17, 2012 7:18 am

Greetings. The third installment of Secret Files series also uses the SPR archive format. Now these tools over here:
http://oezmen.eu/gameresources/files/tunguska.zip
support the SPR format but they don't have the key embedded. They only have the keys for SF1 demo, SF1 retail and SF2 retail... and Lost Horizon. Can anyone please check for the encryption key?

Sample archive available in PM on request.

The game uses the key value of the Lost Horizon in the .spr files.

Could you describe your problem a bit more in detail? Do the tools generate any error messages?

SPRExt should work with Secret Files 3 data files out of the box (though it will tell you that it has detected Lost Horizon data files, but that doesn't matter). Conversely, when using MakSPR, just specify the Lost Horizon key ("/key:lh").

If unpacking fails due to an unknown key, please issue the following command and come back to us with the results:

Code: Select all

sprext my_problematic_file.spr /force /keyonly
