View Full Version : RIM extractor

01-05-2004, 11:27 AM
I didn't see any programs to extract RIM files around, so I wrote one. It's available here (http://blitz.phpwebhosting.com/eiz/rim_ext.exe). There are some ResTypes that I don't have in my list, though, so some of the files may have missing or incorrect extensions. Testing was not extensive but it at least pretends to work well enough to extract some modules and disassemble some scripts.

Now all we need is a editor for the .are files...

I extracted the proper ResType names out of swkotor.exe and wrote a little utility to stuff all of the files in the current directory into a RIM file. Binaries for these utilities are here (http://blitz.phpwebhosting.com/eiz/iotools-exe-0.0.tar.gz) and there's also some source code (http://blitz.phpwebhosting.com/eiz/iotools-0.0.tar.gz) if you feel like wading through some very rushed and ugly C++ (you'll need MinGW and Jam/MR if you want to build it as-is, though it should be fairly easy to build with other toolchains).

Someone ought to add the new ResTypes to NWN Explorer to get it to stop giving numeric extensions for resource types it doesn't understand.

I've been looking at the area formats a little bit, and it makes me want to go hide in a corner somewhere. =/
