A set of utilities to work with UE3 cooked packages (u, upk, umap).
The utilities were originally made to work with XCOM:EU/EW games. Now they also support Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City.
XComLZO is an old helper tool and can be considered deprecated now.
ExportTexturesToDDS and ImportTexturesFromDDS are the new tools added to find and modify textures inside packages and the Textures.tfc file. They allow to permanently inject modified textures into an UE3 game, thus eliminating the need for TexMod.
For more information on how to export/import textures see this doc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1aANCeqO_n3c4jFaXmDadvZTxB3xj_JAbtjjF9kXKjCs
The tools are locked to work with certain versions of the engine only. Simply unlocking the version is useless in most cases: due to the differences in how data are organized inside the packages using tools on an unsupported game will most probably lead to a crash.
The updated versions of the tools won't work properly with PatcherGUI. Use the v7.3 sources released on Apr 10, 2015 for that purpose.
How to compile under Linux:
I did not have time to test the newest version of the tools under Linux. These instructions are for the older versions (v7.3 and below).
Install gcc-c++ (g++) compiler, meson, ninja, git and any wxGTK-devel v.2.9+ package available for your distribution repository. There are some programs which requires wxWidgets:
Everything else should compile perfectly without wxGTK installed.
Clone github repo and compile UPKUtils project:
git clone https://github.com/wghost/UPKUtils.git meson build cd build ninja
To compile project using CMake:
cmake -B build . make -C build
If you compile this under Windows you may use CMake GUI and generate project for your favorite IDE. You may need to manually specify where is your wxWidgets installation located.
Example build under MS Windows done from MSVS MSBuild console:
cmake -G "Visual Studio 14 2015" -A Win32 -B build . msbuild build\UpkUtils.sln /p:Configuration=Release
To compile XComLZO packer/unpacker (deprecated):
cd UPKUtils/XComLZO/build cmake . make
