Battlefield Hardline (PS3) unknown compression

Post by GenericRipper » Mon Feb 04, 2019 8:48 pm

Hi, I'm not too experienced with this so that any help will be greatly appreciated!
Long story short: this BF game has both compressed & uncompressed files stored within *.SB/*.TOC pairs and it makes extraction pretty difficult. Almost every single SB archive contains at least 1 such file and the 1st occurrence of it immediately crashes an extractor with this report: "Exception: Unknown compression type 0x02 at OFFSET in NAME.sb".

These are screens of select archives, I highlighted offsets where troublesome compressed files are supposed to start - CommonChunks.sb, FrontEndChunks.sb, PrologueChunks.sb.

Best regards!
