BioWare HERF archive extractor


unherf [<options>] <command> <file>


unherf extract BioWare HERF archives, found in the Nintendo DS game Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood.

A HERF, Hashed ERF, is a very simple archive, similar to BioWare's ERF and RIM files. Unlike those, HERF usually only store djb2 hashes of the contained filenames. This tool has a lookup table to convert the hashes back into readable filenames. Not all names are known yet.
