Possible to use PS4 DLC with a PC UE3 Game (Batman Arkham Knight)?
« on: September 24, 2019, 01:06 »

Hello,

I have acquired decrypted PS4 pkg files for two exclusive pieces of Arkham Knight DLC (Scarecrow Nightmare Missions and some skins).  Using Ps4PKGViewer, I extracted the Content folders for each.  Within the Content folders are "Config" (containing Orbis-BmGame.ini) and "CookedOrbis" (containing .bin, .xxx, and .tfc files).

If I rename Orbis-BmGame.ini to BmGame.ini, the in-game menus show the Scarecrow Nightmare missions and the skins as selectable options.

However, if I select the Scarecrow Nightmare racing mission, it just loads a different racing map.  And if I select one of the exclusive skins, the game crashes with an error (something about being unable to locate one of the .xxx files).  I tried passing in the -seekfreeloading launch parameter.

I have very little knowledge of how to use the Unreal Engine 3, so I started doing some research about cooked files.  I understand that these .xxx files are cooked for the PS4 version of Arkham Knight.  I also understand that it is not likely that we could extract and repackage these .xxx files or "uncook" them.

Simply, is there any chance of getting the PC version Arkham Knight to use the exclusive PS4 exclusive DLC files?  Is there anyway to "recook" PS4 files into a PC-cooked file?

Any guidance or suggestions would be welcome!  Thanks!

PC, PS4, Xbox etc packages are not compatible with each other. Most likely engine will not notice new files at all. If it will notice and attempt to load - in this case you'll get crash.

I think I know the answer, but there is no way to re-package the package, right?  No way to either covert it directly to a PC package or to "un-cook" it?

In other words, is there any possible way to get this PS4-exclusive content to work with the PC game, even if it requires some serious work?

If you could upload the files to mega or mediafire, I could take a look at those files and work on integrating them in Arkham Knight on PC.
