Hello! I need help to unpack files from .dat and pack back the modified ones. Here a .zip archive that contains a sample .dat file (0_DISC_INIT.dat).
Also here is a link to dat.ndx, maybe it contains all the filenames that are in .dat

I'm quite sure to have already seen this format in the past since I remember the index file located in a sub-folder of the dat archives.
Anyway I made a new script from scratch:
http://aluigi.org/bms/dirt5.bms

Just select dat.ndx and it will do the rest.

Most of the files are without name and it's normal because they are not referenced so I decided to extract them anyway (maybe there is some old/hidden content)

Thanks a lot for the script! Sorry for the late respond, only now I saw your post. It worked, but there are a couple of problems =(
1. In process of unpacking files at some point the following error appears: https://imgur.com/Mrtmobx But there is no 9_DISC_XB.dat file in the dat folder. That's all we have:
Code:
0_DISC_INIT.dat
1_DISC_DEV.dat
2_DISC_FPX.dat
3_DISC_FPX.dat
4_DISC_ARC.dat
5_DISC_ARC.dat
6_DISC_ARC.dat
7_DISC_AUC.dat
8_DISC_PS.dat
11_DISC_OTH.csv
11_DISC_OTH.dat
12_DISC_OTH.csv
12_DISC_OTH.dat
13_DISC_OTH.csv
13_DISC_OTH.dat
14_DISC_OTH.csv
14_DISC_OTH.dat
15_DISC_OTH.csv
15_DISC_OTH.dat
16_DISC_OTH.csv
16_DISC_OTH.dat
17_DISC_OTH.csv
17_DISC_OTH.dat
18_DISC_OTH.csv
18_DISC_OTH.dat
19_DISC_OTH.csv
19_DISC_OTH.dat
datfiles.version

2. It seems all the *.cfg or *.json or other text files are not readable (encrypted or compressed?). I've attach the zip archive with some of this files.

Is any chance to extract all files from .dat and make them readable? (*.cfg, *.json etc)

And thanks again for your hard work! Many times your scripts helped me to modify games =)
