Disassembling an installer.

in Mac Software edited January 2014
How can I 'take apart' an installer. Specifically the Halo installer. It is a single application which contains all the reference files (.map etc) inside it. My question is, there must be a way to access these compressed files hidden inside the app. Or am I wrong?

    If it's a package, you can use Pacifist to take it apart, but if it's a third party installer, I'm afraid you're SOL.

    Darn it! I need to locate a copy of sounds.map and infinite.map since they are both corrupted. I think my CD is scratched up too bad since each time I reinstall they re-corrupt. GRRRT!

    There doesn't happen to be a good samaratin out there who would dump them out somewhere in a web directory for me is there? (it IS Easter afterall)

    I don't *think* this breaches the AI code of law... but if this is asking too much, just say so and I'll clear these posts.

    Curse sounds.map!

    Curse it to a PC filled hades!

    Can you imagine how tough it is to play without audio cueues? I can't even here the fly by of angry alien counterfire.
