Is there any official word about the new pak files? Is their content supposed to be accessible/what format do they use?

I have no idea and unfortunately this kinda stuff is over my head. Hopefully one of the people who worked on this in the past are still interested.

I do know that none of the old stuff works as it looks like they changed something under the hood.

An experimental version is available, no guarantees that it'll work though smile

Extraction works like a charm, deleting the pak and replacing it with the raw(and edited) contents worked without an issue so far.
That was fast, thanks!

Does this allow for 4 custom characters or just for connectivity?

I've done pretty much the same thing, with the same result.
I've also tried to change HenchMen and ClassPresets, to no avail.

It seems the game engine just doesn't care about the .LSX files. Just to make sure it wasn't still loading old files, I deleted the original .PAK files after extracting them. The game starts fine, but my changes are still ignored. Has anyone been able to figure out why this happens?

As a side note, you can make the game shut up about the invalid files by clearing the "MD5" value in the meta.lsx file,
which I suppose immediately invalidates my previous claim about the game engine not caring about the .LSX files.

I guess the CharacterCreation stuff is handled differently than the other .LSX files...

Has anyone been able to figure out if there is some way to get the game to accept your modified files?

EE has new MainLSF.pak that contains henchmen files and many other that overwrites all your changes. This is Larians way to say have fun modding.

I've updated the tool today to fix some packaging problems:
(v1.0.2)
* Fix some incompatibilities in the handling of deflate streams
* Fix CRC calculation on compressed files
* Add CRC verification when decompressing
* Save file compression flags properly

Redownload the extractor again, should be OK now

... scratch that, it should be working fine.
The app is targeting .NET 4.5, and the "BinaryReader(Stream,&#8194;Encoding,&#8194;Boolean)" ctor was added in v4.5, yet yours is missing it. A mystery ...

Can you redownload this: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30653 and try again?
