    You just have to know what to use and how to do it. I got the incomplete version of SDK 1.6 from a torrent site and this package extracts just fine.

    Well I got that too but without docs I couldn't find which utility should be able to unpack .pkg file - that's exactly what I was asking...

    I running windows XP so this is the patch to the files

    D:\Other\ps3sdk\ps3\cell\host-win32\bin

    then run make_package_npdrm -x Folding-GameCategory.pkg

    And it will extract to a folder called NPIA00002

    very possibly just a fluke coincidence but awhile ago when I attempted to run recovery software on the PS3 hard drive it returned alot of files with the .dds extension which is the extension used in all the files in these directories.

    NPIA00002\USRDIR\dapp\cgc0001\data

    Thanx for the info. The 1.6 SDK has got that utility however it doesn't list that option:

    Code:
    make_package_npdrm.exe --help
    
    usage: [revision 1061]
    
        make_package_npdrm [options] config-file target-directory
            -v | --verbose          print verbose messages.
            -f | --nofilelimit      no limitation to file find.
    
        make_package_npdrm [options] npdrm-package
            -c | --check            check package format.
            -l | --list             list packaged files.
    
        make_package_npdrm [options]
            --version               print revision.
            --help                  print help message.
    And without docs there is only hard way to figure that out...

    I already did. What I meant was that until someone pointed to it, it was quite a long stretch to find that option without docs...

    Yeah, its not in the docs either - its a little gem we found one day. Quite useful.

    Needless to say, the new versions do not have that option in them.

    Everything I have previously read said the .pkg files are compressed, which I do agree that there is some sort of compression but how come so little??

    The size difference between this folding pkg and the extracted folder is very minimal that it defeats the purpose to really be compressed so has any research been done on the compression?

    Just a guess: AFAIK good encryption algorithm hides any pattern from original source - even though the un-encrypted source would be having patterns or repeating sequences, encrypted result hides all of it. Well encrypted data has (almost) the same distribution of every character thus making it very hard to compress. See [Register or Login to view links]
