Well. There's two bucks I'll never get back. The RPA Extractor didn't work for me. It won't open at all.
A downloadable RPA Extractor for Windows
Tool to extract images from RenPy games' .rpa files. Use the three D's to use:
2. Drag .rpa file on rpaExtract.exe
To do this on macOS (aka Mac OS X), watch [video not yet done].
Useful for people who made a game and uploaded it and then their hard drive with the source files exploded.
Using this tool on other people's games might be considered 'reverse-engineering'. If you have doubts about the legality of doing so, consider reading the terms (EULA) of the game you are trying to reverse-engineer and consider reading this stackexchange thread.
Using this tool on other people's games could also simply be considered cheating, which no one in the world will care about (I am not a lawyer).

When I checked the exe file on virus total, it shows 10 engines where a few say trojan. I'm just curious on what they mean since I am a bit new to checking for viruses and all that.
Very fair to point that out. I don't know why this happens. I re-checked and by now it's only 9 warnings. I don't recognize any of the 9 antivirus software names that flag it (besides ClamVM which I know of because it's open source and "McAfee-GW-Edition" which I only know because of the name "McAfee".) The "normal McAfee strangely does not flag rpaExtract.exe.
In the end, it seems like false positives.
please fix it, win 10 is not working, Oct.30 , 2019
Tried to use this extractor to unpack archive.rpa files, doesn't work sadly.
also not working
^ This game. It's still in development phase and I just want to see how many CGs are there in the beta build. After I drag & dropped the rpa file (the filesize is more than 1gb), the program works as intended but then stopped working midway through (the window simply disappearing, leaving no extracted/decrypted files). I don't think my antivirus blocked it or interfere the process since there's no error pop out or something like that.
It works for me. It created the "date" folder, which contains the assets.
My theory why it didn't work for you:
1. You have very little RAM (turn off all other applications)
2. Your file path contains non-ASCII characters (russian characters in your username path perhaps). Move the game install files to C:\test\ for example and put the rpaExtract.exe in the same folder as archive.rpa, then follow the video instructions.
If it still doesn't work, you can try to run the tool in a command line or powershell .\rpaExtract.exe archive.rpa so you check whether there are any error messages when it crashes.
"To do this on macOS (aka Mac OS X), watch [video not yet done]."
So what do I need to do on MacOS, that would be a great help for me?
Thank you !
