What compression is used on the files? Is it per file or as a whole? Also, is there any sort of pre or post compression encryption used?

This archive contains code and in-depth documentation of the compression used, wirtten by Ryan Foss aka. Moseley, who cracked it. I also think that Type ID and the first Unknown in each file entry are reserved for FILETIME (whether it's actually used or not) + four bytes of padding, like the RalliSport Challenge 1/2 archives from Dice. — Alf 07:28, 8 Jan 2006 (EST)
