THE advantage of understanding Project igi 2 file structures is that you probably extend your discovery into
other Codemasters games (like dirt)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_igi_2
my search on web about Project igi 2 .res archives show me that no tools for this game developed yet !
i tried other extractores like : Dragon UnPACKer , game extractor , ......
but none of them rips the .res archives of Project igi 2 and the extractor that i mentioned to it and is able to rips .res archives , it supports .res archives of game (rage of mages) and it rips the .res archives of Project igi 2 suddenly !
I attached different files type of Project igi 2 for you , please a deft check the file structures , whether contains any 3d data or chunks , thanks a lot !

content of attachment :
one .txt file , contains directory structure of geme , dir /s
often 3d models are in .spr format
texture in .tex

the IGI2 archives (luckily I still had the demo here) are chunks based and use a lot of padding... really boring.
this script should be able to extract any file and data (included the strings in messages.res which are not real files) from these archives

Yes the script works fine to extract data from igi 2 .res.
I have extracted the sound.res and got many wav files but cant play them with media player but 2 years back i have done the same process and have gotten playable .wav file but currently when i extract the sound.res there is wav. Files the can not be played in media player.
Any help mr aluigi.
And also tell us how to deal with .tex texture files.


Sorry for bad english
