 Post subject: Can't use Notepad++?

Hey, I was just trying to use Notepad++ to modify a map patch file (Ya know, like Battleaxe_005.rfa), but after modifying, and saving, the .rfa file seems to mess up!

When I try to open it in WINRFA, it shows: "Your computer is low on memory".

And my computer is not low on memory :|
Sometimes it also shows an error message with:
"MAJOR CRASH!
dlg.DoMondal()"

How do I fix this? I don't feel like extracting, and repacking everything with winRFA.

Uhm, Notepad is not a RFA editor, but a regular text editor...you absolutely need to extract the rfa before you start working on it with notepad...

Damnit, does ANYONE then know what encryption that RFA uses, so I can program an editor? I think I already know the answer to that, but I'll take my chanses.

There was an old open source rfa extractor project years ago, I believe it was simply called RAT.

Though it may be for earlier version of the refractor engine it might provide some insight..
