Thread: Converting Code in s File to English

  1. #1

    Question Converting Code in s File to English

    I am trying to Modify the ACE File in the s. File. However the s File Contains a Series of Codes and No English Words.
    It Also Said to Use SFM.
    I Have Never Run into this Before When Trying to Make Required Changes.
    Thank you,

    First decompress the .s file
    The compressed file is written in unknown language 😄
    SFM decompresses the .s file.
    Use any notepad to edit.
    Cheers

    Shape files are compressed you need SFM = Shape File Manager to uncompress them and to edit them.

    Quicker and easier way to change out ace files in the shape file is to use Archibald, available at Steam4ME

    Archibald is currently not available at steam4me (I just tried) as part of a reworking of the site. It looks like it should be back before too long, though

    Steam4me's operator is not currently involved in the MSTS world. The author was having some medical issues at last report. Some of the links have been dead for a while now.
