I do not have such
Once you have the the GBX tools installed, just download “XUnpack”, and you will not need to do anything in a command window.
Sometimes you need to hold SHIFT+right click to get that option.
he right-clicked on “archive.exe”, instead of the folder itself
Or just do what @KennyTheKlever said…

I singed up just to say THANK YOU! I have been searching for somthing that opens and extracts BIG-fils for almost two days and gotten more and more frustrated with every attempt with FinalBIG that just freezes and a bunch of other programs that just didn’t work. But your link to ModPacker finally solved my problem. So again Thank You a thousand times.
Has the big file format changed since the last post? Neither way decompiles the big files for me.
XUnpack does not show the big file. Gives me message: please choose at least one big file. Yes I’m pointing to the folder where the file is located in Steam. Yes I have the tools installed.
ModPacker errors: subscript out of range.
