Tomb Raider 7 (Legend) (PS3): Gibbed.TombRaider7.Unpack.exe isn't working

Post by GenericRipper » Thu Jan 23, 2020 8:34 pm

Hi guys, I experience problems trying to unpack a BIGFILE.000 archive from TR7 for PS3 (a part of Tomb Raider Trilogy release).

I got this version of Rick’s tool (the newest build I presume), set project value to "Tomb Raider 7 (PS3)" but "Gibbed.TombRaider7.Unpack.exe" crashed with this error (
attachment #1
).
Then I tried a somewhat similar program (the latest ver. too), moved both "Tomb Raider 7 (PS3)" folder & "Tomb Raider 7 (PS3).xml" file to "projects" folder inside "bin_dx3" folder, once again I set project value to "Tomb Raider 7 (PS3)" but "Gibbed.DeusEx3.Unpack.exe" had a crash very early on too; it gave me much more detailed info about possible reasons though (attachment #2).

Is anyone else experiencing the same problems? When I set out to try & rip some BGMs from TR7 I never thought that any trouble could wait for me on the 1st stage of the whole process...
Goodbye & thanks in advance for any feedback!

PS. I'm attempting to rip BLES01195 release if it helps; can this problem be release-specific (for example I had to choose US release to make "Gibbed.TombRaider7.Unpack.exe" or "Gibbed.DeusEx3.Unpack.exe" work)? It doesn't seem too likely to me after all...

I've just checked US release & got the same error... in case anyone's interested.
Bye!
Edit: the version I tried to rip was BLUS30718 this time.

Read the instructions

PS3 is big endian so you must pass flag -b on commandline.
Click the thanks button if I helped!

Like this?

It doesn't look like this *.exe understands such a flag...

Later!

If anyone's interested then here's the current status of all this: I searched for another build and found something, it had that --big-endian option so that it managed to extract data. Playing back sounds isn't possible though, it might be some new variation of *.mul AKA *.EMFF format and we'll have to wait & see if it can be implemented in VGMstream plugin.

So long!
