    I am unsure of the file type but if opened in a hex editor the first four characters are PACK
    It's found inside the lz7 archives in water warfare.

    Nah 7-zip is having none of it. I assume it'll need some sort of special extractor. Like exracting from .arc require a certain extractor.

    Has anyone yet thoroughly read my first post and realised this is not a normal archive but one from a wiiware game?

    If you downloaded something that won't open with 7-zip or WinRar, then perhaps try downloading from a different source. Seriously, there's no reason for it to be archived in a such a difficult way, unless the file is fake to begin with.

    Maybe because Nintendo don't want people hacking game data.

    Sorry, I thought you were trying to unzip Water Warfare, but I realize you're looking at a file within it. What exactly are you trying to do?

    Tried it and it is what I use to some extent. I can unexctract the PACK files from the .lz7 archives. But I don't know where to go from there. Unpacking the .lz7 leaves me with an uncompressed file that when viewed ina hex editor begins with PACK
    I need a way to extract the files within these.

    So, 24hours later [​IMG]
    Does anyone have any other ideas on how to unpack this "PACK" archive. Either way I think it'd be awesome of we could get these files and retexture Water Warfare into a more serious looking game.
