What game are those ARC files from? Can you upload some sample files?

Hey! I’m so sorry for replying this late, I’m not getting notifications, so I thought this post didn’t get much attention. I’ll send the files later tonight so you can take a look when you’re available. Thanks in advance!

According to my research, this game uses two types of archives:
1. ARC/TAB - main archive type used by the game. It should look like this in the "Archives" directory:

2. SARC - so called "small archives". They are stored inside main ARC archives.

I've found only one script that was able to successfully unpack ARC/TAB files.
It is available in this topic here https://web.archive.org/web/20231017055851/https://forum.xentax.com/viewtopic.php?t=4272&start=30
You have to choose TAB file in quickbms in order to successfully unpack files.

There is also this tool https://github.com/Ekey/JC.ARC.Tool
but it doesn't work for me for some reason.

SARC archive can be unpacked with the script I've written https://github.com/bartlomiejduda/Tools/blob/master/NEW Tools/Just Cause/Just_Cause_1_sarc_script.bms
I've tested it on file "pc0/2658708".


I'm uploading file formats mentioned above as an attachments to this post.
