Need Help: Warning not KotOR related but it is Modding related
 
Know first that I have the deepest respect for the Holowan community and all the modders who added days of replayability and fun to 2 already great games.

I post here simply because I have been trying to mod another game and have so far failed. Though this game isn't Star Wars related it was also developed so that modding it is nearly impossible.

I simply have a few thoughts I hope the modders here can help me with.

How can I modify a .str file? I know there are programs out there that can help but the file is rather large (1.8 gigs) and I am afraid I do not have enough RAM to accomidate. I have heard of programs that can turn .str files into .ini files so if someone can point me in the right direction I would very much appreciate it.

Thank You


Mod note: Moved to the general games forum since it's not about the KOTOR series. ~M

It would be easier to offer any help if you said what game this is about. File extensions can be fairly generic and re-used by several different programs even if the data format inside is different. :)

While I'm sure we don't mind helping you out if we know the answer, I'd also recommend going to the forums for that particular game--it's far more likely to find people who are familiar with the game and how to mod it.

The game is Hitman Blood Money, and so far I cant find anyone from their forums who has come up with a solution or some sort of unpacker program that can turn this 1.8 gig .str file into something more editable.

That is mainly my reason for coming here because I remember back in the old days how unmoddable KotOR was then a bunch of innovative modders came along and made it work.

I for one dont mind putting in the work to find a way to beat this monster but my knowledge of certain file extensions is rather limited and so far my searches on the .str extension has yielding many different possibilities.

What I know for sure is that the information in this file is somewhat similar to what you might find in a .big file and it needs to be unpacked to be able to get to the goods inside.

p.s: Thanks for moving the thread I wasn't sure where to put this in the first place.

I had a quick look around and found this program (Extractor) that supposedly is able to extract resources from a STR archive file for Hitman:Blood Money, but since I don't have that game I don't know anything more about how/if it works than I have read. :)

If no one more familiar with the game has a better suggestion to offer it might be worth having a look at at least.

Thank you for your help this should at least give me a direction to go in
