Notes and Comments

Table decryption

Each of the three structure tables has been xor-encrypted. The decryption depends on the seed value given in the header as well as a partly fixed key domain value. The decryption key will change for each byte in the buffer (depending on the previously seen bytes), as shown in this pseudo code:

KeyDomain := 0xbebe2 * Seed;
Key := ((Seed shl 8) or ((not Seed) and 0xff));

for i := 0 to Length(Data) - 1 do

Key := (Key * Key) mod KeyDomain;
Buffer[i] := Buffer[i] xor (Key and 0xff);
Key := Key + Buffer[i] + 1;


Data decompression

In cases of compressed file data, the compression header offset and size values will be set to appropriate values. Note that the data offset value will then point to the compressed data block, which is prepended by a uint32 containing the uncompressed size. (This size value is not present if the data is not compressed.) The compression header itself might look different for various compression techniques, but only one is known to be used in the game.


The compression header of the SLZX method is constructed by a four-char identifier (SLZX) followed by a uint32 value storing the uncompressed data size. (Please note that this results in three distinct places where the uncompressed size can be found: The file table entry, the SLZX compression header and the beginning of the compressed data block.)

The compression technique itself is a variant of the common LZSS in the following sense:

  • The interpretation of the bit flags is reversed (0 indicates a literal copy, while 1 indicates a buffer reference).
  • An offset/length pair is given by a little-endian uint16 value. The uppermost five bits store the length, while the lower 11 bits contain the offset value. After each such offset/length pair there follows exactly one additional literal character.
  • The history buffer (2048 bytes in size) is not circular, but slides along the output. All offsets are absolute buffer references. (Please note that the buffer "window" only starts sliding forward as soon as 2048 bytes of data have been output.)
