This tool will either pack or unpack the contents of the .pdb files that come with the game so you can see what they are made of. This is for fun only, you need to be somewhat techy to use this. To unpack a pdb file, you'd do this:

packpdb2 -u htdata832.pdb

Run from the command line with no arguments to see more info on how to use it.

I can't seem to open any of the snd files or open anything on the mission editor, but it's great to see the guts of WI! Cheers Scott!

I was told most of the files inside are in a format that only wi can understand.

This game seems inhackable though.

Try a full system reboot, I was getting errors until I gave that a go.

I tried rebooting but same thing. The only difference is the process id and thread id are different numbers.

I think you're passing invalid parameters on the command line. Look at the CRID parameter for example. It needs to be 4 capital letters. I think WI is using WARI.
