    Help on an old dos PAK file

    Hi mates, I am into a translation project that aims to translate the graphic also, so I need to decode/encode an old raw image file of a game called "Kings of the beach" from electronic arts (1988). Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Stefano

    I'd suggest looking at http://forum.xentax.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=4450 or around.
    Its really hard to understand an unknown binary format from a few compressed files, so unless there's an existing unpacker somewhere,
    it would involve reverse-engineering the decoder etc.
    There're kinda different forums for that.
