PostSubject: opening db files   Tue 18 Jul 2017 - 11:24

I have notice that stalkers have been opening game data files to make
minor adjustments that have been offered, is there an app or what ever
that will pack and repack these files, when ever I have searched for this
opener I seem to encounter a brick wall, so there appears to be one so
would/could any one point out the best for this job.
  thanks nk

There are a couple of unpackers in the file download section here - see [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

These programs only unpack - and I would strongly advise against trying to repack .db? files unless you know what you are doing (I wouldn't know where to start!). Also files run faster in packed form, so only unpack those files that you specifically want to edit. By default Stalkersoup and other Stalker games look in the Gamedata folder first, so an unpacked file in the correct location within Gamedata will be used instead of the packed (master) version.

Personally I like to tinker, so I have unpacked everything into a separate folder. This allows me to search everything for a key word or phrase to identify the file(s) that I want to edit. I then copy those files into my Stalkersoup Gamedata folder, creating new sub-folders where required, and edit them there. That way I don't mess up the originals, and if I do something wrong I can just delete the unpacked file and Stalkersoup will revert to using the packed version.
