PAC file dun exits!

While I’m not hacking Brawl, this seems to be an extremely common problem/question: What do I do if there isn’t a PAC file included with some of the Stack Smash textures, like Shiny Pokemon Trainer?! The answer is simple:


Which you can find here:

The download is in .rar format, will contain a folder called “lz77ex”, which will have the following programs:

“But what am I supposed to do with this?!”, you might be asking.
Well, it’s all very simple:

1.) Extract the folder “lz77ex” to your Desktop, or someplace where you might need this program for easy access.

2.) Put a PCS file that requires a PAC file (such as FitPokeTrainer00.pcs) into the “lz77ex” folder.

3.) Drag-and-drop the PCS file onto lz77ex.exe.
A window should open, saying it is processing the data, and that “Files opened successfully!”

4.) WAIT UNTIL ALL THE ASTERISKS (these ****** things) FILL UP THE BOTTOM ROW. The window will notify you of when its done converting the PCS file, saying “Successful writing data to [location in computer].pcs.out
Press any key to continue . . . _

5.) Simply rename the end of your file to .pac, and you’re done.
For example: You drag-and-drop FitPokeTrainer00.pcs onto lz77ex.exe.
It converts, and has a new file called FitPokeTrainer00.pcs.out.
You rename “FitPokeTrainer00.pcs.out”, to “FitPokeTrainer00.pac”, changing the .pcs.out into .pac. Simple as that.

Now please, don’t complain about us not supplying PAC files in some of our files when the PCS files can be converted so easily. C:

  • For those worried, don’t worry, this doesn’t compensate for an update. 😛

  • I got this from the Released Content thing ages ago.
    Anyone who uses custom textures or want to use custom textures should get this. GET IT, OR ELSE!!!

  • ummmm 3rd?
    Good to know, even If I cant use it.

  • my computer sez that is an atack site. You sure it’s safe?

    also, 4th

  • @_@ Firefox says that site is an attack site!

  • Just asking, is there anyway to turn PAC’s into PCS’s?

  • That porgram never worked for me so I always used SSBBrac instead 😛

  • S. I found an error in your guide:
    “2.) Put a PCS file that requires a PAC file (such as FitPokeTrainer00.pac) into the “lz77ex” folder.”

    Just change it to FitPokeTrainer00.pcs and it will be fine.

  • dude um… lz77ex SUCKS man it takes so long, thers one that does it in a matter of seconds, look at the past elite smash hackers posts X_X

  • Help, anyone? I tried downloading it from somewhere that my computer would let me on, and it says “lz77ex encountered a problem and needs to close” whenever I try to make a PAC. What should I do?

  • Lol, I wanted to do such a post because I’ve received countless of messages asking me how/why, etc.

  • Oh and Firefox also tells me that it’s an attack site but it’s not. I used to go on this site on Firefox and nothing happened. Just today it now says it.

    Reported Attack Site!

    Attack sites try to install programs that steal private information, use your computer to attack others, or damage your system.

    Some attack sites intentionally distribute harmful software, but many are compromised without the knowledge or permission of their owners.

    Don’t worry guys, the site won’t harm your computer or anything.

  • Part of this site was listed for suspicious activity 1 time(s) over the past 90 days.

    REAAALLY suspicious, huh? Lol.

    Sorry for triple post. :3

  • I see above it was asked if you could change pac to pcs files? That’s part of texture hacking, you take the pac file and edit it, then when you finish, you have a pac and pcs file.

  • it won’t let me on the site… even if I wanted to, my comp won’t let me. It doesn’t matter. >_<

  • O wait nvm. Lol.
    I tried converting the Metroid Trainer v2 files. However, the only file that it’ll let me convert is the Mother Brain Trainer file. Is this normal? Will it still work?

  • I don’t use lz77ex anymore. I use something else that is much faster and gets the job done better.

  • Wow S…

    with tutorials like that, you might as well make your own series of tutorials to compete with KCMM’s.

    I can imagine what this tut would be called:

    “lz77ex for Dumber Dummies”

    Instructions that even PZT could understand! FAP FAP FAP FAP FAP

  • thank you captain ovious but i prefer SSBBarc.exe

  • You need the PAC files in order to make textures for Zelda/Sheik, Zero Suit Samus and Pokémon Trainer work correctly, right?

  • Smashbox does the same thing, only quicker

  • Sometimes lz77ex has errors with converting pcs to pac, and I find that the best way to do it is to run it in command prompt like “lz77ex.exe [name of pcs].pcs”

  • This answers so many of my questions.
    Thanks guys!

    @Val Halen
    Bowser textures don’t work if there’s no pac file either.
