    Lightbulb QuakeLive pk3 files.

    Hi

    Some time ago iD software has launched new reincarnation of Quake III.
    http://www.quakelive.com/

    It have own pack format. It is not a ZIP, it is new.. Trid can't identify it.
    UniExtractor, of course, fails.

    Examples:
    http://cdn-assets.quakelive.com/cdn/...seq3/pak13.pk3 (209 Kb)
    http://cdn-assets.quakelive.com/cdn/...qztourney1.pk3 (1713 Kb)

    Any ideas about decompression ?

    Look at this post in another forum: http://forum.xentax.com/viewtopic.ph...st=0&sk=t&sd=a.
    The PK3 files are XOR-encrypted with a fixed 1025 byte key. A tool to convert them to ZIP files (including C source code) can be found here: http://aluigi.org/papers.htm#q3

    A quick test shows that it works for the files you posted.

    OT: Perhaps I should add support for this file format to Precomp
    Code:
    pk3s.uha 1,967,287 bytes
    pk3s_decrypted.uha.ccm0 1,947,376 bytes
    pk3s_decrypted.uha.pcf 3,683,092 bytes
    pk3s_decrypted.uha.pcf.ccm0 1,604,237 bytes
    pk3s_decrypted_progonly.pcf.3.paq8o8 1,422,613 bytes
    pk3s_decrypted_progonly.pcf.4.paq8o8 1,240,049 bytes
