    I want to make a texture hack for LEGO Island 2 (Higher res textures) for my own amusement, because the graphics really bug me on 768p, but I can't find the textures anywhere. They are not in the game's folders. The installer didn't do anything in Appdata either, so they must be in the data1 and data2 Cabinet files in the folder and Disc. At least I hope so. (They weren't in the exe.)
    The thing is, neither Windows Explorer or 7Zip can open these files, Explorer says the thing's corrupted, but I don't believe that. It must be something else. Maybe an encryption? I don't see why would they protect them so much anyway. Most devs just shove it in the EXE or in a folder next to it.
    So, any ideas about how could I get to these files?
