Extracting GAME.GOG On Linux

I found myself in an interesting situation the other day. I wanted to take OpenTomb for a spin but the only data files I had on hand were from the Steam version. Much Googling later I ran across a post by Ancurio explaining how to extract game assets from Steam & GOG versions under Linux.

Let’s find out how well it works.

1. First we need to create a .cue file so crack open your editor of choice, enter the below incantation, and save it as game.cue in the Tomb Raider Steam folder.

TRACK 01 MODE1/2352
INDEX 01 00:00:00

2. Up next, we’re going to use bchunk to write the *.iso.

bchunk GAME.GOG game.cue cdrom

3. Now you should have a file called cdrom01.iso that can be mounted.

sudo mount cdrom01.iso /media/cdrom
