Consider helping out in updating the wiki for 3.5.0 - see Path_of_Exile_Wiki:To-do_list/3.5.0.

Most of the game data is live. Cleanup of old things & new maps will take a bit.

Uncompressed DDS files from the ggpk for the wiki

If you've been trying to get images for the wiki from the content.ggpk recently, you'll probably have noticed that they are "no valid dds file".

The image files are compressed with google's brotli library. The first 4 bytes of the file are not part of the image data, but rather a byte-size of the uncompressed image. Some "dds" files may also be text file to contain a pointer to another dds file (like *2DArt/Whatever.dds

If you don't want to handle that yourself you can use PyPoE, basically follow those steps

  • Install Python 3.5+ and PyPoE
  • Make sure to perform the full install as it will install brotli

Then using the pypoe_ui command in the ggpk viewer, you have check in the options menu that dds files are uncompressed upon extracting them.
