E86B1EEF
Short name: DIR
Long name: Directory of compressed files

The purpose of these resources is to spead up the loading of a DAT file by showing exactly what is compressed inside it. They are directories of all the compressed files in an archive. Accordingly, their structure is quite simple.

[edit] Format

repeated
DWORD
Type ID of the file
DWORD
Group ID of the file
DWORD
Instance ID of the file
DWORD
Instance2/Resource ID (only when index format of DBPF is 7.1)
DWORD
Size of the decompressed file in Hex

[edit] Notes

These files are found as DIR/Directory by the reader and are automatically modified by it during changes to dat files.

It is HIGHLY reccommended that you modify the Directory after editing any compressed file before saving the dat if you are working manually in hex or making your own program.
