Quick and Easy Software
An explorer tool for games by Double Fine Productions. It supports games that use the Moai, Buddha and Remonkeyed engines. That’s most games the company has released.
It enables you to view, extract and convert resources. This includes text, speech, music, scripts and images.
Click Open and either click on open folder or choose one of the games and the game folder will automatically be found. Choose one of the resource files.
Click Save File to save a file. Different options will appear here depending on the type of file you’ve selected.
Click Save All Files to save all files. Different options will be available here depending on the type of files available in the currently open resource file.
Click on the View button to show a list of all the different file types, selecting one of these changes the view so that only these file types are visible.
To reset the view and show all files, click the button again and click View All Files.
To search just type in the search box. Searching ignores any filter that you’ve used. I.e. the view will be reset to ‘All Files’. The search looks in file names and is an ‘instant search’ - the search happens as you type.
To reset the view either delete the text in the search box or click the View button and select View all files.
There is a hidden button that can automatically extract a file and open it in a hex editor.
To enable this feature you need to make a DoublefineExplorer.ini file in the same place as the program. Inside it should look like this:
[Settings] Hexeditor=C:\\Program Files\\BreakPoint Software\\Hex Workshop v6\\HWorks32.exe
Obviously Hexeditor should point to the path of your chosen hex editor.
When the ini file is present the Send to Hex Ed button will appear. Files that are sent to the hex editor are first dumped to the temp folder. The program keeps track of what files it has saved here and when you open a new file or close the program it will delete them (though it obviously cant delete any files that are still open in the hex editor so close that first).
The pc versions of the following games are supported. Versions for other platforms usually work but are largely untested.
Psychonauts: The main ‘Psychonautsdata2.pkg’ file and the audio .isb files are supported. Unfortunately the level pack files (.ppf) aren’t. This is because the new version of Psychonauts that’s on Steam and GOG changed the format of these files. If you have the original version of Psychonauts you can open all the level files in Psychonauts Explorer.
There are a few audio files that don’t decode correctly. This is probably because they use a different codec. There are known problems with UI.fsb in The Cave and with 5 fsb files in Iron Brigade.
Grim Fandango Remastered: I’ve concentrated on adding support for the newer stuff introduced in the Remastered version. The original files can still be decoded with SCUMM Revisited.
