So, we're at somewhat of a crossroads. Not sure what I should be looking for when it comes to the .const alternative. One one hand, we can keep searching for it, or on the other hand we can try something new.
So when using the program to OffZip to unpack .ast files, I get greeted with a prompt that says 82% extracted. Well I don't want 82% extracted, I want 100% So when changing the block size in OffZip, I was able to get that up to 85%. With that, I got an extra file. This file contained the following.
Apt X 0.
So I don't really know what to do here, on one hand, I could try to find another program that can extract these files. The creator of OffZip, said that if it can't hit at least 95% then there is a problem with reading the files, such as OffZip not being able to read them yet.
So if anyone knows another program other than offzip that extracts .ast files, that would be a huge help, and another step closer to achieve this!
