Big file extractor & open

because I can open or unpack

What are you trying to ask?

Big file extractor need :stuck_out_tongue:
Where can I download ?

When downloaded, hold shift and right-click on this directory (where ever you have Steam installed), and select “Open command window here”:

Then you’ll type in the following:

oh thanks


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

Good :stuck_out_tongue:

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.:pray::slightly_smiling_face:

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.
