It's because the file in AWAN PC version are all little endian. The first byte in the bin file actually is a bool value which tells you whether the file is BE or LE. I modified your tool, now it works on AWAN PC version. If you want, I can send you the source file I modified.

Hi!

Alan Wake's American Nightmare...

Did you know that the game archives contain a secret page of Alan Wake's manuscript?

Here is the original of the image, the text is almost not visible:
Image

I made ​​transcription the best of their ability. But the two words (marked [...]) have remained undeciphered. I would be grateful for any help.

Enjoy:
In the cabin, two stuffed ravens stare at Wake and Alice from atop a bookshelf. Wake is surprised to find his typewriter sitting on the desk. Alice was planned the whole thing behind Wake's back to get him writing again. The vacation was just a ruse to get Wake here. Wake feels angry and betrayed. Every-one keeps pushing him to do something he is not ready to do. Wake and Alice [...] about it. Suddenly, the lights in the cabin start to flicker. Unseen by Wake and Alice, Barbara Jagger stands in the shadows in the cabin. As soon as it began, the flickering stops and Jagger is gone. Alice is [...] by the flickering lights. Wake is too angry to stay. He needs to cool off, to clear his head.

Wake storms out of the cabin. He is certain that Alice will not follow him into the dark. When Wake gets to the car, he hears Alice. She is screaming in terror, calling his name. There is a splash of water and then silence. Alarmed, Wake pluck up a flashlight from the car and rushes back to the lake. Wake is surprised to see that the cabin is dark, the lights are out. He looks for Alice. Wake round the dark water with his lamp. He seen her form underwater, sinking into the darkness. He draws a shuddering breath and dives into the black water.

Wake wakes up gasping from a nightmare. He is in the car. The car has crashed against a tree. It's night. He is bleeding from his forehead. He has hit his head. He staggers out. He calls out Alice's name. There is no reply.

P.S.: In attachment the english text of Alan Wake's American Nightmare. And there is not this page.

Open the file by hex editor, find this text: "DDS". This is where the font texture start. It's end is the end of the font file.

Hello there!
thanks for the great tool!

Iam trying to do a simple thing - making game with spanish audio and english subtitles. So I first exported both en.bin and es.bin files and just exchanged the string_table english into string_table spanish one. Then imported the en file. This sounds logical to me.
But when clicking import, 2 new files are created :
ep999-000-es.bin2
ep999-000-es.rmdp2

the "2" on the end of each file looks strange at first to me. So I just renamed the original files and in those new files just deleted the "2" in the name. But then the game just wont start.

Any idea?

Thanks
e.

The "bin2/rmdp2" are the new files, the repacked data.
Move/rename the original bin/rmdp file, than delete the "2" from the end of the new files. That's it.
