I have a file with the extension of "TOC" I assumed it meant Table of Contents, and the contents of said file represent that it indeed is one.

It's full of content such as this:

144800a 50 D3D11\characters\m10658_number_104_masquerade\m10658_number_104_masquerade.phyre

Now, I figured the first line is a hex encoded size which checks out for the corresponding DAT size (Minus 6ish MB), the last column is obviously the file name. But, I don't know where to start on what the middle value is, it's a HEX encoding of something, but if you convert it and add them together it exceeds the left over buffer room.

Anyone have any advice or how I could start looking into the EXE to see how it's handling the file? (I've tried running it through x64dbg but the munmbo jumbo of ASM means nothing to me)

the second column appears to be the length of the string in the third column

from whatever was pasted as sample

the file so.txt contains the posted sample data

:\>awk "{ printf( \"%x \" , length($3)) ;print  $2}" so.txt
15 15
15 15
50 50
50 50
3e 3e
4e 4e
48 48
4a 4a
62 62
42 42
4c 4c
44 44
58 58
60 60

  • That checks out from the testing I've done :). I should've thought it was something so simple... Then again, not entirely sure why it needs to have it's own column. But oh well. Thanks again bud! :D
