    Code:
    asset_unpacker.exe ..\assets\packed.pak ..\assets\Unpacked
    this comes from my unpacker batch file. the structure is as follows
    Code:
    program target destination
    if any of these have spaces, you will need them in quotation marks. from what you have, you are missing the destination

    I've been trying to extract the viera pak file just to try and see if the ships are in there. No luck.

    the code doesn't work, all I get is "The system cannot find the path specified." Am I doing it wrong?

    Are you using CMD or "Powershell"?

    Using the method explained in the OP, on windows10, will give Powershell as the option instead of CMD. (Blue window instead of black). Go to the folder's address bar, click on an empty spot (highlight it blue) and type CMD. That will launch the proper CMD window with the folder's address set. (Like the OP's Shift+Right clicking). It should work at that point.

    Can I make a pak file out of a folder, and if so, can I do it with a mod folder, I couldn't quite understand the guide.
