    After quiiiiite a few hours messing with files, I finally cracked open my MH4U files, only to be greeted by a data folder(and an eng folder which also contains another data folder) containing milllllliiions of .arc files, which EFE will not open. I found a script by someone on this site that said it was an unpacker, and that seems to have worked, but within each arc file is a bunch of other folders(lets use em049.arc as an example, it contains effect, enemy, and sound folders) that all have nameless files that also cannot be opened with EFE. Is this an issue with anything I've done, or is there another unknown step to opening THESE files. a lot of the names make sense in MH4U terms (NPC, Pig, Helm), and the subfolders make sense, I just have no means of opening any of the files.

    UPDATE: these files, when opened with HxD Have .tex and .mod extensions. If I just give them the extensions in their filename should this work?
