I used your amazing tool quite some months ago. But now I can´t find the UI.sga file you´re speaking about. There are two .sga files in steam/.../CoH2/Archives/ directed to UI: UIHigh.sga and UILow.sga, but I am not able to open these files as archives.

Did I miss something?

Are you using the included Archive Viewer?

Had some issues with some extractor tools. :facepalm: Managed it with Janne´s map extractor, works fine now! :D

Well, just keep in mind that there is an official archive viewer built into mod builder.

I had the same problem when I actually used the official archive viewer, so I thought that was the UI Browser becoming obsolete with the last patch. I dunno, might wanna check that out.

I'll try what he did with the map extractor to see if that works, or if its just my PC being retarded.

The download link doesn't seem to work any more. Would anyone be willing to reupload this somewhere? Thanks!

This probably sounds totally like a noob, but I could use some help with the following:

I would like to extract some images (like icons). If I'm right, this is the tool to do that.
But I have some trouble with the first step in the OP: Extract UI.sga somewhere if you already haven't.

I have no idea how to do that and a small search didn't clarify anything to me. Could somebody point me to the right direction on how to do that? It would we greatly appreciated!

The file is called "UIHigh.sga" now and you can find it in your "...\steamapps\common\Company of Heroes 2\CoH2\Archives" folder. You need to extract it with the Archive Viewer that is part of the COH2 Mod Tools and then open "coh2ui.gfx" with the UI Asset Browser.

Edit: Janne's explanation below is a lot more detailed :D

How to extract the contents of UIHigh.sga
  • Install Company of Heroes 2 Tools if you already haven't
    • Launch Steam
    • Click Library then Tools
    • Right click on Company of Heroes 2 Tools and select Install Game…

  • Launch Company of Heroes 2 Tools and select "Tools" -> "Archive Viewer"
  • In Archive Viewer, select "File" -> "Open" and browse to your Company of Heroes 2 installation directory and select UIHigh.sga located in subdirectory CoH2\Archives\
    • By default, COH2 is installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Company of Heroes 2
    • If you are unsure where your COH2 is installed, you can quickly check the location by right-clicking COH2 in your Steam Library and select "Properties", then "Local Files", and finally "Browse local files".

  • Right-click "UIHigh.sga" in the Archive Viewer's treeview and select "Extract".

Just run Jannes extractor tool to extract the file UI.sga
Follow the link in my post down there to get it. Open extractor tool and drag/drop UI.sga from ...Steam...CoH2/Data..

After that follow Jannes steps with the UI Asset Browser in this thread.



Edit: Nevermind you´re in his Master´s arms now. ;)

I'm having an issue with extracting the sga file. It gets about halfway before I get an error pop up saying "Error extracting UIHigh.sga: Error reading data for file placeholder." How do I fix this? I just extract it to a folder I made specifically for the sga file.

You'll have to extract UIHigh.sga in parts while maintaining the folder structure.
All folders except ui\bin\ in the archive can be directly extracted.
The folder ui\bin\ has to be extracted manually. You'll only have to extract the one .gfx file.
