NFS Shift Unpacker with Updated Script

About This File

This ZIP file includes an updated BAT script from here: https://pastebin.com/43BbKeb5
The updated script fixes the issue of the invisible Team Racing Pack vehicles when using the older script.
If you have the older 'game_unpack.bat' script, use the new 'shift_unpacker.bat' script.


Original author: acti0n http://sommergemuese.klee.in/2009/09/shift-modden-und-ohne-repacker-zocken/

For several Need for Speed Shift mods you need to unpack the game files.
In order to do so, just copy the following files into your game's directory:

    - shift_unpacker.bat
    - nfsshift.bms
    - quickbms.exe

Then run 'shift_unpacker.bat'.

Once the game is unpacked, you can use these new unpacked files by adding
the "-loose" parameter to your shift.exe shortcut. Make a new shortcut on
shift.exe, then click on right mouse -> properties and in the line
"target" add " -loose".

After that you should be able to start the game with this shortcut.

You forgot to use the -loose command line argument on the game exe.

Sadly, I also get the black screen. I added the -loose argument and also renamed the shift2u.exe to shift2u.bin.exe because a thread on steam metioned it. The added .bin works on the packed version (same problem as the unpacked version) but not on the unpacked version. I would be grateful for help
