Introduction
I'm a big fan of the Assassin's Creed franchise and I'll love see MODs for this games, and I always wanted see all people playing this games on your native language, so I decided made a tool to explore this *.forge files to make possible do translations and MODs, but this files are a mess and work on this becomed a hell hard and boring thing, so I'm really tired of working on these tools, there are many games and hundreds of thousands of files to test, so I come here to ask for help from the community to perform the tests.
The compression speed is terrible, big files can take several minutes to a full export and hours to a full import, so I decided separate into two tool. The first one export the files from the *.forge package, the second one decompress(if compressed) and export Resources(if is a Resource Collection) from *.data files exported from the *.forge package. Keep on your mind that some files exported from the *.forge files already are resources, so DATA tool will not work on this files.

Supported Games

- Assassin's Creed II

The files looks obfuscated, I opened a discussion for anyone who wants to analyze the files: https://zenhax.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=9069
- STEEP
I don't have the game.

How to Help
- First of all: See Readme.txt for instructions,
- Export the files from a *.forge package;
- Export the Resources from ONE of these *.data files;
- Import the Resources back without modifications;
- Import this *.data file back to the *.forge package;
- Test if the game works with this new package;
- Repeat previous steps but with a different *.data file, and so on...
- Report in this topic the results, mentioning the name of the game, name of the package and name of the data file.

Thanks for the feedback. I already fixed this problem and many others bugs, but not released the updated version yet.

I'll be honest, my interest to keep developing this tool is almost zero, the comunity feedback is desappointing, everyone wants help, but nobody wants to help.
I asked for help with testing the tools, something extremely simple, requiring no technical skills, just having some of the games and mainly the desire to collaborate, but everyone tried to use the tools for their selfish purposes instead of collaborating with the tests.
Most of the bugs found in the current version are foolish mistakes made by me porting the functions from one tool to another, which shows how exhausting it was to work on it alone.
So, at some point I'll release a updated version with this fixes, and this will probably be the last version of the tool, no more fixes and no more features.

For those interested on models and this kind of stuff from the last AC games, theres a guy on Xentax making a great work developing a tool to work with this games: https://forum.xentax.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=19324
Anyway, thanks.

no dude, i changed Ezio customs and script files and your tool works great! Thank you for tool
and is there anyone to translate localization exporter from forglib to Lua? it's really matter for me right now

look, a lot of people don't know how to use hex and don't know even what is the header! and this tool is not useful for them just because people don't know decompress file give them a access to modding and recompressing back and made their mods!

you better work whit those guys and maybe they can write a texture importer (it's really easy in decompressed files (and also splited textures), but most of people don't know how to replace a dds raw :| ) and scripts can be edit with hex and even 3d-models can be replace!
you did right job for forge, but other guys should create a tool for texture and models if people can't use hex editor, because hooking textures with right header no longer easy in new games, and those guys better help people and made tool on your exported .dat content from your tool and made a importer based on this

[ingame-data(DDS-RAW)] <<normal dds>> in folder, to edit by any image editors(TGA Format)

export: first, convert raw to normal dds, and convert normal dds to tga and export to a folder for edit
import: after editing, import TGA to tool and convert to normal dds(in clipboard ofcourse), and write raw to original decompressed file

even can use this process on any object and material file and 3D-models (again, easy to hex, but most of people don't know!)

Do not get disappointed, that's just the usual. I made a packer for Sniper Elite games, downloaded a few hundred times, but maybe one or two thanked. I disappointed a little bit also, but I write it not for the thanks, instead just for translators (I translated the game for my language so in the end I made it myself too).

Thank you so much for creating such a great tool. It keeps helping the people who want to translate the games to their language around the world. So, maybe we don't know each other, but we are grateful in the shadows. I hope you won't be disappointed in your life. Thanks again for everyting.
