XTool 2020 (Database Maker)

Database Maker/Generator is part of xtool and this post is dedicated to explaining how it works.


If xtool does not have a plugin designed to work for a certain input or game but if for example you managed to extract (not unpack) streams a certain file has then you order xtool to create a plugin in a form of a database file which can then be used within the program.

The syntax is as follows:
Code:
xtool generate [parameters] extracted_streams original_data database_output
Parameters: 
  -m#  - codec to use for precompression
  -c#  - scanning range of precompressor [16mb]
  -t#  - number of working threads [50p]
the inputs of both extracted_streams and original_data can either be a file or a folder (wildcards/masks) are accepted.

Example:
Code:
xtool.exe generate -mxcompress "VehicleHRLiveries.bff_extract\*" "VehicleHRLiveries.bff" pcars.xtl

Is "Far Cry 2" able to work with this? As far as I know it is one of two titles to use Dunia 1 (the other being the Ubisoft licensed "Avatar" title).

Sample upload is structured as it appears in the title's directory, as some files have identical names. The second title mentioned "James Cameron's Avatar: The Game" does not have a sample included, as it does not seem to have any ".fat", or ".dat" files present, despite it using the same iteration of the Dunia engine as "Far Cry 2". It instead seems to house all of its required assets within ".pak" files.

Here are some for testing

PS: db maker named them all as fc3.xtl (maybe it's a bug), so I have renamed them.

some doubt arises.

did you change the fc3.xtl name in bat file?
Code:
for /R "%~1\" %%a IN (*.fat) do dunia2_db "%%a" fc3.xtl
