File Information

UPDATE: V010 of cienislaw's tools are out! Find them here


This will use cienislaw dat2txt and txt2dat python scripts and .exe. You will need basic knowledge on how to work a computer through this tutorial.


[size=120]I will also add /spoiler to images so you won't have chronic scroll-down-all-the-time.


Note: This is for version 006, 007, 008, v009 (Python) and v010 (.EXE) of cienislaw's tools


(PYTHON ROUTE) I also recommend creating a copy of your TL2 folder somewhere else so if somethings goes wrong on the copy, you can easily replace it with the un-edited DATA.PAK/.MAN [size=120]IF YOU USE PYTHON.
(EXE ROUTE: RECOMMENDED) You do not need to worry about this if you plan on using fgaaghf's torch2packer.


Tools needed:
Download dat2txt_009.rar PYTHON
or Download dat2txt_exe_010.rar .EXE
Torchlight 2 Extractor
fgaaghf's torch2packer.v3


OPTIONAL FILES



Extract dat2txt_009.rar or v010 somewhere where you will remember.


STEP 1: Torchlight 2 Extractor. Required Step.



STEP 2-A (recommended): This spoiler is for extracting all of the .dat files in the MEDIA folder to .txt files. This will use v010 of cienislaw's dat2txt/txt2dat scripts now in .exe form! DOES NOT REQUIRE PYTHON



STEP 2-B: This spoiler is for extracting all of the .dat files in the MEDIA folder to .txt files. REQUIRES PYTHON. If you just wish create one specific .txt, scroll down a bit more.
A LOT OF IMAGES IN THIS SPOILER.



STEP 2-C: If you just want to extract one specific .txt from a .dat file, drag the .dat file into dat2txt.py OR dat2txt.exe



CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE SUCCESSFULLY EXTRACTED .DAT FILES TO .TXT FILES! WOO!
