Want to edit Cricket 07?
Reading this thread will hopefully help all would-be patchers saving the need for them to start new threads. It will be locked and can be added to, as required, by the C07 forum moderators.

Cricket07 data is contained mostly in a .big file called data.gob. File can be extracted from here using a program called BigGUI

The almost complete list of what all the files in data.gob are can be found here. This will tell you which files to edit.

The files

.fsh files - These are the graphics files for the game (mainly bats/faces/stadium gfx etc). This thread in the downloads forum contains information about the fsh files in C07. Fsh files can be viewed using FshED.

.big files - These are the storage files in which other files are contained. Big files will contain .fsh files and .o files for faces, .rfe files for menus, .cfg for configs, .o .fsh .bin .collision files for stadiums, .viv for animations, .jdi for effects, .saf for strokes. They can all be extracted using BigGUI or viewed (and sometimes previewed) using EA Graphics Editor

.cfg files - Configuration and pacing files for the game. Can be edited using notepad/wordpad.

.collision file - Used in stadiums and not editable with notepad/wordpad etc. Possibly used for rendering.

.o files - 3D modelling files used primarily for faces, bats and stadiums. Edit using oedit.

.ash files - These contain the details of the Ashes scenarios. Editable with notepad or wordpad.

.rfe files - These contain the information on how the game screens are made up. Everything from the main menu to TV overlays and statistics ingame. Currently the encryption/compression has not been cracked so they are mostly uneditable.

.rsg files - These contain fixtures for tournaments in xml format. They can be easily edited with notepad or wordpad.

.english - Contains string data for some of the ingame text. May need to be edited in conjunction with the exe.

.xml files - These are used for strokes, fields and storing important game information on players, stadiums, teams, commentary etc. Editable with notepad, wordpad but best edited with XMLnotepad. Stroke files can be edited with the Shot Editor. Fields can be edited with the Field Editor.

.png/.txd/.tga/.lst - These are, as far as I'm aware, all left over from previous EA cricket games and totally unused by C07.

.dff - 3D renderware files, presumeably for player models and stadiums. As yet unedited in any EA cricket release.

.bin -The files containing the Game Captures. Have yet to be edited in any EA cricket release.

.vp6 - EA Sports video file. Can be converted to .avi using EA convert.

.viv - Animation files. Not been edited.

Other stuff

.ros - The roster files the game uses. Can be edited using a hex editor or more easily with Player Editor07.

.tmt - Tournament Files. Most can be edited with HarryPotter_fan's tmt editor

.mch - Save Game files. Have been partially edited using a hex editor but more work needs to be done. Duded64 has made an editor for changing match conditions.

.pro - Game profile. Edit using a hex editor. Contains information on settings as well as on unlocked videos and scenarios. A video unlocker has been made by Sid_19840.

Faces - This post is essential reading if you are planning on releasing unique faces.

Extract all the logos and kits from their folders to the ck27 root directory. This will surely work.
