Recent Updates

  • Games
    Added game description that was attempted to be added in the translation description.
  • Hacks
    Minor text update I should've done last year
  • Hacks
    V1.1.4: Fixed skippable and enterable unrevealed levels, HDMA during transitions, music staying sped up when beating a level with less than 100 seconds in the time, skippable cutscenes and final boss is easier. This update was released on July 24 (almost 5 months ago), but only submitted it now because I forgot to do this here.
  • Games
    Fixed typo and grammar.

Description:

Arctool lets you unpack and repack all the ARC files in the game (these are container files containing all the game assets). And it can also convert some specific file formats used by the game such as TEX (textures), XFS (used for defining various gameplay variables and scripts), LOT (used for defining enemy positions and related enemy information), and GMD (text).

Basic usage:

  • Drag and drop arc files onto pc-dd to unpack, or drag and drop directories onto pc-dd to repack.
  • Use command prompt, and write “pc-dd [arcfilename]” to unpack, or “pc-dd [dir]” to repack.

You can enable functionality for converting additional file formats. Edit pc-dd.bat with a text editor and add these arguments to it, or add them in your command line syntax when using command prompt:

  • tex (converts textures to and from DDS)
  • xfs (converts gameplay variables/scripts to and from XML)
  • lot (converts enemy definition files to and from text)
  • gmd (converts binary text files in the game to editable text files)

Currently supported games:

  • RE HD (-REHD)
  • RE5 (-RE5)
  • RE6 (-RE6)
  • RE: Revelations (-REV)
  • RE: Revelations 2 (-REV2)
  • Dragon’s Dogma (-DD)
  • Devil May Cry 4 (-DMC4) (only PC version is supported)
  • Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition (-DMC4SE) (only PC version is supported)
  • Ultimate vs Capcom 3 (-UMVC3)

Note that there are variants of some of these formats which are not yet fully supported by arctool.
