Jump to navigation Jump to search

This guide will teach you how to extract game assets from WAL archives. Once you’ve extracted the WAL contents, you can replace any files you like and re-pack the WAL to create file mods.

You will need[edit | edit source]

  • A WAL file (obtained from your copy of the Sly Collection/Sly Trilogy)
  • SlyTools (available on GitHub)

Extracting the WAL[edit | edit source]

What now?[edit | edit source]

Now that you have the files, there are endless possibilities for what you can do with them, including (but not limited to):

  • Replace the dialogue, sound effects, or music with custom audio files
  • Replace cutscenes with your own custom videos
  • Swap the names of map files to change the flow of the game (e.g. replace the splash screen with a different map so the game loads directly into that map)
  • Open the levels in a map viewer program
