I was unpacking .far and .iff files of The Sims Complete Collection in order to change the localization of the game, hoping it would support Cyrillic considering it has Russian slot which isn't used. Unfortunately, it doesn't support it. After some searching, I found an unofficial Russian patch for the game. I compared the two installations in order to find out which files are different, and I realized the .FFN font files inside "UIGraphics.far" package are modified. Considering my native language has some additional Cyrillic characters which aren't present in Russian, I would need your help with editing the .FFN fonts. I attached the original .FFN files and the ones from the Russian patch, hoping it would be easier for you to analyze them. These files are used in many EA Games, according to Google, hence the title.

Thank you in advance!

Here are more FFN files I found. These are from the game EA SPORTS Cricket 07.

I suppose this is hard to crack. Did anyone try?

If you prefer I can move the topic in the Graphics file section because I think that these files contain uncompressed 32bit images, but I have no experience with this stuff, just checking them with a hex editor.

Go ahead. :) I'm still hoping someone could figure out this format.

Wow, good job! Can you share a script/tool for decompressing/reimporting the files? I am particularly interested in The Sims fonts ("FFN files.7z" from the first post; the "Modified" folder contains the fonts from the Russian unofficial patch of the game). Also, I'm not sure which file is responsible for linking the characters to the specific portions of the font images. I thought everything's included in the FFN files.

Here are the rest of the fonts from the game (I think .fon files aren't used).
