Notes and Comments

  • Some *.USM files are encrypted using a 8-byte XOR key (like in HCA files)
  • USM keys are often the same as HCA keys (not always)
  • Alternative names for USM files are Sofdec2 or CRI Movie 2.
  • Older version of this format is SFD Video.

Getting keys from Unity games

(This method doesn't always work - keep that in mind)
1. Download AssetStudio. Load whole "_Data" folder in AssetStudio.
2. Find CriWareInitializer MonoBehaviour on assets list in AssetStudio window.
3. Go to "decrypterConfig" section in the CriWareInitializer asset and look for "key" value there.
