All the material that has been evaluated for creating this document
comes from my personal research available on my personal website.
The main source is composed by the scripts for my QuickBMS program
started in 2009: http://quickbms.aluigi.org
The secondary source are the stand-alone tools available in my Research
The last source used is my collection of archives passwords:http://aluigi.org/papers.htm#info
The scripts and tools selected for the statistics are those that work
on the files of the games, so any tool related to the encryption of
network data or the decryption of content generated by the user
(savegames) or non-game related stuff have not been included.
about 810 (this document has been originally created in 2013), these
scripts are too many for being listed here.
They cover many types of games of big and small vendors, of any
platform like Xbox, Xbox 360, PC, PS3, PS2, PSP, Wii and others.
They even cover multiple versions of the same file format.
So it's possible to see the script for Crysis 2 and at the same
time the one for games of which I have never heard their name.
rfactorgmdec, rfactordec, wtcced, hldlldec, halomus, rdbigext,
scfdec, umodext, unxwb, uniginex, mmviewer_dumper, osrwdec,
molebox2ext, sdgundamext, tdudec, partydec, ttarchext, asurauncmp,
ssaext, canhelpaczip, sgpdec, uodemoext, egoxext, cauldronext,
bsrdec, motorm4xdec, pyroblazerext, worldshiftext, ssnam67ext,
msmixext, xsoext, ysext, orkdec, ps2ext, vitalext, hedwadext,
borpak, ccftfext, fsbext, nexusext, tnt2zip, cbfext, virtdec,
unvirt, zanzapak, gguardfile, rtwsndext, manext, lin2ed.
Note that many scripts/tools work on multiple games and in some cases
two or more scripts may overlap (different script but same game), so
for realizing these statistics I counted just the scripts/tools and not
each single game they cover just because it's hard if not even
impossible to know what games are covered by a specific engine or if a
file format is used in other games.
Note also that some scripts use more than one algorithm, that's why the
sum of entries is bigger than the number of scripts and tools which
have been evaluated.
All the information have been collected the 13 Apr 2013 with the
manual and automatic checking of each source.
If you are interested in other externals sources (to which I contribute
too) take a look at the ZenHAX forum: https://zenhax.com
Regarding the results showed below, please note that they have been
obtained automatically by using a program over all the scripts
available on my website so some results may be redundant (for example
used multiple times in the same script or maybe two versions of the
same script) and some information may be missing (some scripts are
difficult to parse automatically).
So PLEASE do not take these results too seriously.
