Masquerade is on a distinguished road
Project CARS [RC4 + XCompress]
  • Extract contents of the attached archive and use -mPCARS.
  • You must use -d1 because this game has two layers to the bff file, the first layer is rc4 encryption and the second is compressed data.
  • You can discard the PCARS.XTL file and the key files for decoding, but you must have:
    • xtool.ini
    • xcompress.exe
    • xcompress.dll
  • You must use the following configuration for the XCompress codec for XTool (thanks Razor12911 for explaining this to me):
    Encode=xcompress.exe d -window=131072 -partition=524288 <library>
    Decode=xcompress.exe e -window=131072 -partition=524288 <library>
Compressing Monterey.bff, 222,888,414 bytes

Compressing 222,888,414 bytes with xtool precomp -mPCARS -c512mb -t16 -d1 $$arcdatafile$$.tmp $$arcpackedfile$$.tmp
