Thread: How to unpack something specific from the .pack files

    Files can't be repacked there was some way i think but no modder does that. Open a separate topic in the text Editing Section out of the tutorials section and explain the the changes you did etc and what file you edited, as it doesn't concerns this tutorial.

    Did you read the unpacker readme about the two geography files that must be deleted?

    I unpacked all TGA files sucessfully, I'm trying to find northern_european portraits, but the folder only have "family" folder that contains small portraits for children and non-princess daughters and their gray/dead versions. The 2nd "portrait" folder that contains generals, princesses, merchants, agents etc. is not there for some reason. I repeated unpacking just in case it might missed it somehow but no, northern_european folder still does not contain portrait folder. Any idea where should I look ?

    But factions such as England, Denmark, Scotland are northern_european factions in the faction list. Both southern and northern factions are using the same portraits then ? If I wanted to override/remove some of the portraits for northern factions, do I have to put them in southern_european folder under \data\ui ?

    Yes they share the common folder.

    Pffffft So if I can't change portraits of a specific region, if I make a change it will apply all european factions.

    No portraits are arranged culture wise and it is related to the descr_cultures.txt file. In that file both south_european and northern_european culture share the same folder location.

    I see.. Thanks Ishan. Well, even though I couldn't get what I wanted, at least I learned something while trying. Great tutorial by the way gave you rep for it earlier

    I'm after descr_geography_new.txt and can get it fine from vanilla, but I can't get anything from any of the kingdoms mods...

    I have not checked them but I think you have to edit their unpack_(kingdoms campaign).bat the same way.

    Default Re: How to unpack something specific from the .pack files

    I've tried it using the lines for individual files that Ishan put for the Kingdoms mods,
    Code:
    unpacker.exe --source=..\..\mods\teutonic\packs\*.pack --destination=c:\packs\ --filter=descr_geography_new.txt

    What happens if you use the full path spelled out? Mine would be
    Code:
    =C:\Games\Medieval II Total War\mods\teutonic\packs\*.pack

    Same result, nothing. It's too quick to see what the .dos box say's.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    Code:
    unpacker.exe --source=C:\Program Files\SEGA\Medieval II Total War\mods\teutonic\packs\*.pack --destination=c:\packs\ --filter=descr_geography_new.txt

    I've used the search function and have UAC well and truly turned off...

    Here is the full .bat
    Code:
    unpacker.exe --source=..\..\mods\teutonic\packs\*.pack --destination=..\..\ --verbosity=1 --base_pack_path=mods/teutonic/data/
    Could the part in red be needed for destination?

    It's been too long since I used DOS much.

    That's the line from unpack_teutonic.bat, which will unpack everything. (Looking tempting at this point).

    # Edit

    So I unpacked the entire Teutonic pack and there was no descr_geography_new file in there...

    At the same time no matter which file I try to unpack from any of the kingdoms mods I get nothing...

    Thanks for your input irishron, as always.

    Open a command prompt and change directories until you're at the appropriate one and then run the unpacker, this way the window won't close immediately. You might also be able to change the settings on the bat file, or just add the pause command.

    I unpacked Teutonc when I unpacked vanilla and my Teutonic does not have one either.

    I just did a search and the only descr_geography_new.txt are british_isles and americas.
