Description

This little command line program was written by ElFarto for unpacking the Nexus files required foe modding. Along with the program, I've also included a page taken from the official Nexus forums detailing instructions in its use. Happy modding :)

hey, I had a problem using it on Vista. Did you come across anything like that? (my problem: the program would show the extraction process, like it would normally do (I know how it works, I tried succesfully on windows XP) but in the end no folders were created. Opinions?

Worked fine for me on my Vista 32-bit system, all files and folders where they're supposed to be. You didn't, by any chance, send it to the wrong drive or something minor like that did you?

I don't think so... Anyway, did you ever wondered what is there on the other .dat and .dap files? Datool doesn't seem able to open them, and if there is a way it may grants us a better
understanding of nexus, and thus, a finer way to mod it.

By the looks of things, DaTool was purpose written to unpack the one file I'm afraid. Although, if you know enough about this kind of thing, you can download the source code and try to modify it.

ElFarto also released the uncompiled text version of DaTool, currently available from SWAT-Portal (http://www.swat-portal.com/), Nexus section, I believe...

I had this problem also. To solve it, you have to run DaTool as administrator. This just do as you would normally do.

An easier way to run datool.exe is to creat a batch file in the nexus install folder. Edit it to read datool.exe x nexus_00.dat Avoids all command line mess.
