Opening the .bag

  1. Hey yall, knowsleyrider has sent me 4 .bag kit files from RC2006. Unfortunatley, I haven't a scooby as to how to open them. Does anyone? I've tried a couple of programes, the ones from BLIC don't work and neither do Dragon Unpacker. Perhaps Mr Trev could help us out?

  3. Dang, BLIC editors dont work ? That was my next port of call. Ahh well saved me some time [​IMG]

    Not sure Trev can help us with this one unless its a bit of helpful info passed on behind closed doors. I think he has said before that any editors, kit templates etc have to be sanctioned by ubisoft.

    I cant wait to see a rugby league kit in this game.

    Hope swordfish release the six consecutive rucks then a turnover patch for PC soon. [​IMG]
    Actually the funny thing is, that would have probably been very easy to program. Would have loved that to be in [​IMG]
     
  4. I'm going to ask around a bunch of people I know who can use hex from the pro evo/fifa editing sites, see if I can get it to work in hex. There was a programme that opened most editble game files but the .bag doesn't seem to be recogniseable.

    As long as they are uncompressed, I can do them
     
  6. What if they are compressed ? To be honest I think they may be because I tried compressing them using winrar and it made absolutely no difference to the file size.

    Anyway you can always get hold of one of the files from Edinburgh and have a bash.

    oh dear.

    did you find TeamAndPlayerInfo.bag?
     
  8. Yeah I dont think it was called exactly that, but it was pretty much the same thing like teamdata.bag or something, was about 60 meg or so though. Then there was a career.bag I think and one called replace.bag. Some serious weight to the files though.

    So cant you edit compressed bag files unless Swordfish dished out some serious dirt / utils ?

    Bugger !!! Im slowly leaning towards this being a better play than EA06 as well. If it cant be edited thats poo [​IMG]

    I'll just have to wait til I get it I guess.
     
  10. It's possible to extract with hex, but I don't know how to use it. As I said, there was a program called game extractor which seemingly extracted files from all known game archives, save for this one. I'll mail them, ask them if they could perhaps help us out.
     
  11. I would say Inertia is one of the ones at the forefront of Rugby game editing. Whats the score m8, are we screwed ?
     
  12. Watto (the guy who wrote the program) replied to me this evening. He's happy to look into the game, and he's amazing at file formats from what I've seen so I think he can crack it. Just need to sit tight for now.

    ill be able to do the hex editing 2 if i can get hold of the bag files.

    inertias rugby league 2 editor isn't doing any hex editing at all its pretty much picking up the xml file and playing with that (which i have been plyaing with 2) are there any small .bag files? like under a mb? i know what lazy is getting at i think the teamdata.bag being 60mb is not what he is after
     
  14. This is a kit file sent to me, try hexing to export.

    hmmm interesting [​IMG]

    ill have to find where it starts and ends, it maybe compressed if so it doesnt look like i can do it

    i am not to good at kits and images from bags, in the teamdata.bag file is it possible to like open it up in like a hex editor and send the first um.. few lines i may be able to get them.

    ill still look at the kit but i dont like my chances

    yeah how did you do it? what did you use?

    It's not properly done yet. I'll divulge more info when I get the game and can work on it properly.

    When is it out?

    yeah that's true for RL 2 but my RL 1 editor was 100% hex [​IMG]

    I'm serioulsy not interested in editing this game, it's just not worth it.

    I was tempted with R2005 for about 5 seconds but when i saw how quickly the mod scene for that died I didn't bother. I haven't played that game in 10 months either.

    Some of the .bag files open with "BagImporter.exe", which I managed to get on a BLIC mod forum.

    It does open carreer.bag, GameData.bag & Replace.bag.

    PlayerHeads.bag crashes.

    Other bags ('thoses in /teams') seems to crash.

    On the other hand, names can be changed quite easily in the profile savefile. It stores all team names and player names.
