This file is outdated and no longer supported. I don't play Skyrim anymore. Go here to find a newer version: HighResTexturePack DLC Tweaks.
Full rights to everything is given to my real life friend Eiwyn.

This is a small command file that lets you clean up Bethesdas HighResTexturePack, using files from the excellent HD Textures DLC Fix. After cleaning, you do not need any extra BSA or loose files to fix the problems with HighResTexturePack01.bsa and HighResTexturePack02.bsa. They will contain only replacement files for Skyrim - Textures.bsa and nothing else.

1. Download HD Texture DLC Fix v1.3b Loose Files from HD Textures DLC Fix and extract the archive to a new folder.
2. Use FO3 Archive Utility to extract your HighResTexturePack01.bsa to a new folder.
3. Extract your HighResTexturePack02.bsa to another folder.
4. Download and extract my batch file.
5. Edit my batch file and change the first 3 lines so that they match your paths.
6. Run the batchfile. I have added annoyingly many pauses so that you can watch and verify that everything works.
7. Use FO3 Archive Utility to rebuild your new BSAs.

The first 3 lines in Clean_HighResTexturePack_DLC_Fix.cmd might seem confusing. I use a ramdisk F: with a folder \bsa as working area. When I extract archives (bsa or 7z) I name the folders same as the archive. This is why the first 3 lines looks like this:

subst m: "f:\bsa\HighResTexturePack01\textures"
subst n: "f:\bsa\HighResTexturePack02\textures"
subst o: "f:\bsa\HD_Texture_DLC_Fix_v1_3b_Loose_Files-8236\textures"

You may of course extract your archives to any folder, but you have to paste in the full paths, ending with \textures

subst m: "\textures"
subst n: "\textures"
subst o: "\textures"

If you extract to desktop, then your paths might be something like this:

subst m: "C:\Users\Name\Desktop\HighResTexturePack01\textures"
subst n: "C:\Users\Name\Desktop\HighResTexturePack02\textures"
subst o: "C:\Users\Name\Desktop\HD_Texture_DLC_Fix_v1_3b_Loose_Files-8236\textures"

For more info about the BSAs, see this fine thread by Brumbek:
