BSA Unpacker tutorial
Hello, heres a quick tutorial on how to unpack the Oblivion BSA's.
There has been a bsa unpacker with a gui made by Timeslip. Which you can get here.
But if you are like me, and want to do it almost manually then this is the place for you.
First download Ghostwheels program "Tes4bsa" Tes4bsa
Then make a folder in the C: drive. I will call mine "BSA".
Then extract the contents of the TES4BSA, the file you just downloaded, into the "BSA" folder which you have just created.
Note: Extracting is another way of copy and pasting.
Also extract the Bsa files from your Oblivion data files, only extract "Oblivion - Meshes" "Oblivion - Textures - Compressed" and "Oblivion - Misc", to the new folder, "BSA".
Your folder should look like this:
Now when everything is extracted, do the following.
Start-Run- type "Cmd" no quotes, and press enter.
Then write "cd C:" no quotes, and press enter.
Then "cd BSA" no quotes, and press enter.
This will open the folder.
tes4bsa unpack "Oblivion - Meshes.bsa" and press enter, this will unpack the meshes.
tes4bsa unpack "Oblivion - Textures - compressed.bsa" and press enter, this will unpack the textures.
tes4bsa unpack "Oblivion - Misc.bsa" and press enter, this will unpack the misc.
Nb. they are all stored in your "BSA" folder.
When you have unpacked all your Bsa's. Extract the contents of the whole "BSA" folder, to the "OblivionData" folder.
And that should be it.
ps. The new files will use 3.2 gb of your harddisk.
