here is one texture on pte format https://drive.google.com/file/d/1BS7OpR ... sp=sharing
butjust have 1 app that ope that, and we need to pay for this app open, how can i change the pte format to another one that i can see.
As I said you need to use crunch. It will still be encrypted but you'll be able to open it. Some of the old textures can be opened without crunch, but you need open them in hex editor (HxD), remove everything up until the beginning of the "DDS" word, and rename the extension to .dds, or open them in 3d Object Converter, and convert to .dds (you can also open .pme files in it).
this crunch is crunch.exe? how i use ?
4. Delete everything from the beginning to the beginning of "Hx" word, and change extension to .crn
5. Move the .crn file on the crunch file, or move the crunch file on the .crn file.
6. crunch will output DDS file. You'll be able to open it, but it will be "pixelated".

You can download crunch.exe from here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1zrXWHn ... sp=sharing

You just need to change extension to .crn. For example save it as "name.crn" instead of "name.pte".

You was supposed to move .crn file to the crunch.exe. (you can also use microsoft powershell for this if you know how to use it)

Hi! So i got to the point where I got the files now, but didn't get crunch to work. I have some .pme files, but most are still .pte and .pmt . Crunch didn't work, or atleast the one that was linked here. Any tips?

Can you tell me what isn't working and with more details? It would also help a lot if you send me a video what are you doing so I can help you.
I also said before that files are still encrypted so even after using crunch you will see bunch of pixels instead of a texture. If you're talking about this then sorry I can't help you.

I tried to help you before. If you still need help message me on private messages. Tell me what you're doing or send me a video so I can help you.

Hi! So I've actually been on top of this a few days now. I've got things to work. But I can promise you the the files are not encrypted. I've been in contact with many people who have actually done this. I got crunch to work, but it's not the file that's linked here. You have to download it from the original github, and after that you need a little bit of cmd knowledge, to get things through crunch. Only thing I can say is that the information is already here in this thread. It's not that hard in the end.

DDS compressed with DXT1

Post by catianna » Tue Feb 16, 2021 1:57 pm

Okay, so I have a tiny problem. I have .DDS files that have been compressed using DXT1. Does anyone have any idea how to get these open?

A little bit background info:

So the original format was .pte and that format is not being used by any other game so far. They use crunch compression to compress the files, so the first thing of course is to take hex, remove the header and then run the .crn file through crunch. Crunch outputs a .DDS file that is compressed using DXT1. We can open the .DDS file, but It's "pixelated". I've added pictures so that you can understand this a little better.

Some say that these files are encrypted, but I've been in contact with a few people who actually have done this and they confirmed that they aren't encrypted. Of course modding is wrong in some cases, so they don't want to tell everything, but we want these purely for creative purposes and giving feedback to the game devs. I don't even know if this is right what I'm asking, but have been stuck with this problem for a while now.

Thank in advance for the information provided! <3
