Asura Engine Extractor

This is an reader / extractor utility for the Asura Engine. It has currently only been tested with the Aliens Versus Predator data files.

Note: This is a beta release. If you find any problems, which I quite honestly expect ;), please don’t hesitate to contact me! 🙂

Features currently supported:

  • Search bar for easy navigation
  • Supports extraction of RSCF chunks
  • Extract a single file or extract them all in one go
  • Extraction rebuilds the directory structure to match the directory structure in the archive for ease of navigation

Features on the to do list:

  • Threaded extraction process
  • Support ASTS chunk in audio streaming resource (*.asr) files
  • Rebuild a modified archive file for possible modification of the game

Known Bugs in 0.9.0.0 Beta:

  • Problem reading ASTS chunk. While it is unsupported, I have made an error and the application isn’t skipping over it properly

  1. I’m not sure if I’ll be finishing it beyond what I’ve done given that there was a distinct lack of interest for it and supposedly better alternatives out there.

  2. I honestly can’t tell you. I’ve got a lot of stuff to do.

    I’m probably going to clean it up and release it as open source along with a few other projects I have.

    No idea when this will happen, however.

  3. Hi friend,i was using your great program asuraextractor to extract the game ”GUN SHOWDOWN”.PSP,and i can extract the RSCF files,but i can’t open and convert this files.And the RSFL files i cant extract(they are the most part of the files).DO YOU HAVE OR KNOW ANY EXTRACTOR TO RSFL FILES?OR DO YOU KNOW WHY I CAN’T USE THE FILES IN RSCF THAT I EXTRACTED?THE FILES ARE TGA,WAVES,BMP AND FILES WHO DONT HAVE EXTENSIONS(I NEED TO KNOW WHAT FILES ARE.I NEED YOUR HELP FRIEND.

  4. hi is not the most part RSFL.is RSCF.I OPEN THE FILES WITH OTHERS PROGRAM(YgNa program)And have other little files(i think dont have so much importance)HCAN,MTRL,HSBB,ATBL,TEXT,TXFL,HSKN(THIS IS THE ONLY ONE WHO ARE MORE BIGGER) AND ETC….IN THE PROGRAM WHEN SAYS ”TIP” OF THE FILES IS ”’??????”’.I CANT OPEN AND CONVERT THE FILES THAT I EXTRACTED,WHY????HERE IS THE START OF ONE….

  5. Hi Guma Scott

    Once the resource file has been extracted by the app (find it in your User Temp directory if I recall) and run something like Dragon Unpacker’s HyperRipper tool over it.

    It should be able to give you a list of known file types.

  6. Ok thanks friend i will do that…i was thinking……your program asuraengineextractor and the program of YgNa(Sniper elite extractor)only extract dds,tga and waves right?so this files that i extracts only can be dds,tga and waves right?There is many types of dds and tga and your program extract all of their?And do oyu know how i see if a dds have inside the animation of the game caracter?Because if comes with the animationm inside is a explanation to i cannot open and convert this files right,or this files are in some kind of compressed dds,tga.Do you have msn to i can send a file to oyu see better?thanks for all the help friend.

  7. Like I said before, your best bet is to run the uncompressed archive through Dragon Unpacker’s HyperRipper feature and it’ll automatically detect what the files are within the binary blob.

    I doubt it’ll give them the correct name however saying that, so it might still not be 100% what you need, but at least you have some files.

    As far as I recall, the application just extracts all files.

    I suppose I need to add some file type detection to the application but I’m not sure when I’ll be able to do this.

  8. Hi friend,i tried open the files with dragon unpacker like you said,but is not working…im send to you the files from where i extracts,the files that i extracts and the files of game ”Gun” from other video games(ps2,pc,xbox360 and gamecube),because if you be able to extract and open this files will be other way to me to get this files.This is so important to me friend,i really need your help,i need this files for a important project that im making,and im in this search a long time ago,and now with your help is like a light to me to can finally finish this hard job.Thanks friend

  9. Just one more questian friend.Do you know if comes the caracthers animations in this files that i extracts?Because i need the animations too.And this letter ‘ € ‘ have in almost files that i extracts, and have in gun pc and ps2 files too.Do you ever seen this letter before in a file?And i put wrong the file from the game Gun from pc in the xbox360 directory.Thanks for all the help friend.

  10. Hi there,

    I took a look and I didn’t see anything that was obvious as to what they are. I’d imagine the contents of them are proprietary. I don’t really have the time to be investigating and writing extractors / readers for anything else at the moment though.

  11. But why your program extracts this files?Your program dont just extract dds, tga and waves?Why your program can extract this files if they have a proprietary language?And friend,i just wanna a help of you ,this so important to me,im not a boy trying put files in others games,im make a important project and i need this files to use like molds,i search in all others western games and dotn have,im in this a long time,have compassion friend….

  12. My program extracts the files, it’s up to you to do what you want with them from there. I’m sorry that I don’t have the time to try and create readers for all of the different file formats out there.

    I’m also not sure if all of the different games using the Asura Engine use a common “Asra format” or proprietary file formats.

    I had a lot of people ask me for features and when I released the code as open-source, there wasn’t much of a buzz, but I at least hoped it’d provide the catalyst to get a few things going either way.

  13. Hello everyone I want the amendment to the dialogues and lists game Sniper Elite, but the problem there is no program for an amendment to the dialogues
