Game asset extractor for Mechanized Assault & Exploration 2 ("M.A.X 2")

M.A.X 2 was an 2d strategy/RTS game released by Interplay in 1998.

By then standards, game was considered burdened by outdated gameplay design and frustrating lack of polish.

But I've always remembered it as insanely atmospheric vision of distant future, with humanity reduced to role of unwilling pawns fighting wars for enigmatic alien force known as Concord.

This project is both nostalgia trip and Rust learning exercise.

Usage

Build the executable and run it in directory containing the MAX2.RES and MAX2.CAF files.

Utility will create new directories named res and caf, and will extract files to it.

Files in unknown formats will be extracted without extension.

RES and CAF files

RES and CAF files are both game asset package files.
