no need now. but thanks anyway How to manually extract game files: (I already had extracted the entire disk to a folder first, not sure if you will need to.) 1. Download InstallShield Cabinet File Viewer. 2. Create a folder to put everything in (ex. C:\Program Files\TerminatorSalvation\). Also add the following subdirectories inside of that: \TerminatorSalvation\data\ \TerminatorSalvation\data\videos\ \TerminatorSalvation\data\cutscenes\ \TerminatorSalvation\data\movies\ \TerminatorSalvation\bundles\ 3. In your Terminator Salvation installation disk, there should be a file named data1.hdr. Open this file with InstallShield Cabinet File Viewer. 4. Go to View—> Components 5. Extract the file located inside GrinExes to the main folder you created. (\TerminatorSalvation\) 6. GrinExesVistaOnly to main folder (if on vista, did not show any in there for me on XP) 7. USR_bundles to \TerminatorSalvation\bundles\ 8. USR_video to \TerminatorSalvation\videos\ 9. USR_root to \TerminatorSalvation\ 10. USR_context_(your language) (ex. the file related to your preferred language) to \TerminatorSalvation\ 11. Basically, inside the data folder create three subfolders named videos, cutscenes and movies. Move all extracted .bik video files to the videos folder. Also, move all .fcl, .bundle and .lhd files to the bundles folder (rename Bundles folder to bundles if it starts with an uppercase - or the game will crash). 12. In the end the structure of your folder (created in step 2) should look something like below: 13. Run TerminatorSalvation.exe to run the game. (Make sure you rename the Bundles, Videos and Data folders so that they start with lowercase letters. Also you might try rebooting the machine and launching the game if you made any changes to the files/structure.) Taken (and edited a bit for here) from filenetworks.blogspot.com.
