A lot of people have trouble with this!

Here's a quick and simple guide to extract and compile Models.pck



Download Tools Here

I hope that I helped some of you, happy editing!

EDIT:

EXCHANGED Splitter & Merger.exe for Merge.bat  

This does the same thing, just rename Models2.pck to Models.pck before adding to your Element folder!

You don't have to write the entire file path if you're using .bat from the same folder, just file / folder name in " " is enough.

start pPck.exe -u models.pck
start pPck.exe -p models.pck.files 1

Just thought it's a bit easier.

Should've also included the .bat to merge models.pck and models.pkx.
Put models.pck and model.pkx in the same folder then into that folder make a new .txt file, into it write
copy /B models.pck +models.pkx models2.pck
then save it as merge.bat and run it, it'll create the 2.9GB models.pck.

If you pack with pPck then it'll create the .pck and .pkx automatically.

Thanks, added this to the download for people instead of the .exe version.

This still doesn't work for me?


Still crashes and I edited the bat file as instructed. 


Any idea what's going wrong?

Your models.pck looks small to me, and I have no edits to it.

It looks like it's been split already and not merged back together, because the size of that is the same size as it'd be if the pkx was split from it.

Like so:




Correct file size after merging :

Hm haven't touched it, that was direct from my element folder.
Anywhere I can get another copy without re-downloading the entire game?

I downloaded a fresh EPW to test out a theory; and for some reason in the download models.pck and models.pkx are present in the element folder.

The files sent out to everyone already have models.pck split, was this intentional?

Feedback from one of the dev's would be appreciated. I'm doing some tests with these files now.

Always been split, the game won't launch if they aren't split.
