An improved SFS Extractor.
« on: July 08, 2010, 02:11:53 PM »

SFS Extractor v2.0 BETA 12

This revised version of QTim's SFS Extractor now has full support for multiple SFS file selection, viewing & extraction.
In addition I have added a new "Unattended Extraction" mode that will process and extract multiple SFS files without any intermediate user interaction. (3rd screen shot)

I've also made a number of convenience improvements:
Percentage progress displays so you know how close to finished it is.   
Local sfs.ini file so you don't have to select your extraction directory from the root every time.
(only works for unattended extraction)


DOWNLOAD: http://www.filefront.com/17019919/SFS_Extractor_v20_beta12.7z

Alternative Download Link



-Picking multiple SFS files
 Once loaded, the listing will now show all the resources from all the SFS files you selected.

-Unattended Extraction
 In addition to being automated, this display format allows progress and error reporting for each individual file. 

All praise QTim. 

A short introduction written by CirX for the original SFS extractor (also applies here):

Quote
Unpack the download to a folder, make sure the folder contains these 3 things:

-a filelist.txt
-sfs.exe
-sfsgui.dll

You don't install this anywhere, you just run it from the .exe . You can replace the filelist.ini in the download with the updated one if you have one. The exe will use the fileslist.txt it finds in the same folder to extract files from SFS archives.

This tool is used to decompile, those .SFS files in your main directory. You know, the ones that contain all the data, and extract the contents of them for you.

Again, the best way to learn this tool is to play with it. You can extract single files, or everything you can find.
It uses the Filelist.txt to identify files and extract them. It cannot extract files it cant find in the filelist. Hence that an updated filelist is important.

To use it, run the SFS.exe, click file/open and select an SFS file in your IL2 game directory to open. It will load the file, and then tell you how much of it it can decode, and how much of it it cant. Sometimes you'll get 100% of the sfs file, but mostly not.

You can then select to extract the files (all of them or just what you choose) to whatever location you want.

Once you see the structure these files are arranged in, you will understand the structure of the MODS folder much better.

filelist.txt for sfs extractor, its the most complete one around, good for stock 4.07-4.12 and UP3 & DBW & SAS modact 5.3.: http://ulozto.net/xJ6SDZK1/filelist-7z

Absolutely great idea, I'm very impressed :)
Makes life that much easier when searching for some specific stuff inside the SFS files.

Best regards - Mike
