Not all versions. Only the latest of stunts and the latest of 4D sports.
But the difference between the earlier 1.1 versions is very small. (There is a game comparison on the wiki)

for me only the "unmodified thing" is relevant, and the unpack algorithm of stunts 1.0 is different - so could be that the VCEs etc. also using different packing/format etc.
its only for getting a full analyze base - even if the game itself is not that relevant

I know that stunpack was recreated by comparing unpacked 1.0 files with packed 1.1 files.

But I could be that 1.0 packed files are different.

according to dstiens github page: https://github.com/dstien/gameformats/tree/master/stunts/stunpack

Code: [Select]
Stunts 1.0 files are not supported.

Unpacking packed 1.0 files (if they are packed with DSI own packing tool) might be difficult to unpack.

Interesting find on the greeng.sfx file.

your killing me with your sentences :)

what tool other then DSI own packing tool should have packed the stunts 1.0 files beforhand?

its impossible to unpack it with 1.1 algorithm if the 1.0 algorithm is different

Exact.
And finding that algorithm ain't easy, or so they say..
