I renamed the topic, because modding Definitive Edition is harder.

I wanna make mods for this game. There is a tool that named SDBIGUnpacker for extract ".big" archives. File extensions of files that extracted from ".big" archives are ".bin"

I want to depack, edit and repack ".bin" files.

BTW, There is an option named "Unpack XML" on SDBIGUnpacker tool. When you select it, it opens this window.

But it don't detect ".bin" files extracted from ".big" archives.

modding is not my area but there is a SDTextureConverter here you could try
https://www.mediafire.com/folder/bcik5bwvi4z0l/SD

here is Noesis python script for fun that will open most of your PC version samples :)

supports dxt1, dxt5, ati2, top level mip only
and i assumed your samples are from PC version, right?

open the file with perm.bin (headers) in the name and the script will find the
paired file with temp.bin (data) in the name if they are next to each other .

also some of your samples had zero data which leads me to think something might
have went wrong with the tool you used to extract the bins from the big file.

found the research thread here

looks like you changed the subject of the thread, this is graphics section of forum
so i will only reply about the texture samples.
it also looks like you removed the PC version samples and replaced them with PS4 samples. :o

here are the original samples posted if anyone else cares to have a look :)

I think ".bin" files are archives, . can you move this topic?

how is anyone supposed to know which platform your samples come from if you don't say? :)
Sleeping Dogs is supported on
PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, Macintosh operating systems

the second sample set you uploaded before were gnf texture format supported by PS4,
and one even has "sony" in the file name, gotta be PS4 :lol:

your third set of samples would be the "Limited Edition" i guess.
i see a new pattern in these, i will make another Noesis python script.
i think thread is fine where it is i think because of the texture container bins. :)
