    These tools are no longer recommended.

    For replacement package tools, see:
    For a replacement for ctsMapper, see:
    For a replacement for PegTool, see:

    Old post:
    These tools are based on Rick's tools, available at Rick's Game Stuff. The original source code is still available at:

    Included in the latest version, you get:
    • Gibbed.SaintsRow2.BuildPackage.exe: creates Saints Row 2 package files
    • Gibbed.SaintsRow2.ConvertVintDoc.exe: converts vint_doc files into a more human-readable vint_xdoc file (no method of converting the other way at present)
    • Gibbed.SaintsRow2.ExtractPackage.exe: extracts Saints Row 2 package files
    • ctsMapper.exe: draw CTS Navpoints on a copy of the game's GPS map
    • PegTool.exe: extract/rebuild peg_pc and g_peg_pc files - allows you to edit the game's textures

    Download or View the source code.

    can you explain how to use this? when click this tool just off instantly dont work.
  3. Any known way to get PegTool to work correctly under Windows 8?

    No matter what I try, the program opens then instantly closes.

    If you're trying to double click it, Pegtool doesn't work that way. You need to drag one of the texture files on to it and it will automatically extract it (providing you have both the peg_pc and g_peg_pc file in the same folder.)
  5. I initially tried that, and it just crashed.
    (Can't post picture of error message)

    I got it working now, though. I just re-installed .Net 3.5 and that seems to have solved my problem. Does that make sense?

    Anyway, program is working great now, thanks for the help IdolNinja; also thanks for taking time to make such great mods for SR2 and SR3!
  6. Hmm, anything new Minimaul? Specifically PegTool?
