Phase files are found within the Toontown Rewritten folder on a user's computer that contains textures, audio, and models. With phase files, it is possible to modify textures and audio to create a resource pack. Below are steps on how to view phase files for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Windows

Panda3D

1. Download the latest stable version of Panda3D by visiting the website.

Extracting the phase files

1. Create a new folder anywhere. Desktop is easier for this simple task.
2. Go to C: > Program Files (x86) > Toontown Rewritten
3. Copy all of the .mf files into your new folder
Phase Files-1
4. Open a command prompt window in that folder. Here are two ways to do this step:
  • Open a new command prompt window and type cd, then file directory (e.g. C:\Users\"username"\Desktop\Toontown Rewritten Files).
  • Shift+Right click within your new folder, and select "Open command window here".
5. Type "multify.exe -x -f phase_3.mf" into the command prompt.
  • You will soon see a folder appear named "phase_3". Wait until the command window has another line with a blinking underscore.
Phase Files-2

Note: If you get the error "Multify.exe", it is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file". To fix this problem, you must go into C: > Panda3D > bin, and copy "multify.exe" into the same folder as your phase files.

6. Repeat step 5 each time replacing "phase_3.mf" with "phase_3.5.mf", "phase_4.mf", etc.
7. You should now have all of the phase files extracted into normal folders.
Phase Files-3

Recompressing the phase files

1. Type "multify.exe -cvf phase_#.mf phase_#". Remember to change the number when inserting the multify command.
2. After recompressing the phase files, you should now have all of the phase files ready to use.
3. Drag your completed phase files to where you can find them, then search “C:\Program Files (x86)\Toontown Rewritten” and place the phase files onto the "resources" folder.
  • You may have to create a "resources" folder if you do not already have one.

Viewing the BAM files

1. Go into the "phase_10" file in your original folder, then models > cashbotHQ
2. Right click any one of the .bam files, and select "Open With" (name of your hex editor).
3. Find the Hex "07" (In HxD press Ctrl + f, select Datatype as Hex-Values, then type "07" in the search box).
Phase Files-4
4. Change the hex "07" to "04"
Phase Files-5
5. Select "File" at the top, then "Save All" or Ctrl + S. After doing that, you can now close the window.
6. Return to the original file directory of your extracted phase files, and go to phase_3.
7. Copy the "maps" folder from phase_3
8. Return to phase_10 > models > cashbotHQ , and create a new folder called "phase_3"
Phase FIles-6
9. Paste the maps folder from the original phase_3 folder, into your new phase_3 folder within phase 10's "cashbotHQ"
10. Repeat steps 6 to 9 each time copying the maps folder from phase_3.5, phase_4, etc.
Phase Files-7
11. Right click any of the .bam files within phase_10 > models > cashbotHQ, and select "Open With" then "select default device".
12. Navigate to C: > Panda3D > bin, and select "pview.exe"

You can now view any of the .bam files within the phase_10's cashbotHQ file.

Note: You can now view any of the .bam files within any of the model folders from the other phase files, HOWEVER they will not be in color unless you copy the file folders from step 10 into the folder with the .bam files that you want to view. (Ex. If you want to view the .bam files in phase_5 > models > props, you must copy the folders from the "cashbotHQ" folder. See picture below.)

Phase Files-8

Congratulations! You can now view almost all of Toontown Rewritten's files, and edit them as you please.

It is very easy to edit the .jpg files within the maps folders with tools such as Photoshop, Paint, etc.

The sound files can also be edited within the "audio" folders, but make sure you leave the name the same as it was.

macOS

Panda3D

  1. Download the latest stable version of Panda3D by visiting the website.

Extracting the phase files

  1. Create a new folder anywhere. Desktop is easier for this simple task.
  2. Open up Finder, press command+shift+G, and search "~/Library/Application Support/Toontown Rewritten" (without the quotation marks).
  3. Open up Terminal. Type in "cd" and then insert wherever your phase files are located, then hit enter. If the phase files are found in your Desktop, simply type "cd Desktop".
  • Extract each phase file by typing multify -x -f phase_#.mf from phase_3 to phase_13. Remember to change the number when inserting the multify command.

Recompressing the phase files

  1. Type "multify -c -f phase_#.mf phase_#". Once again, remember to change the number when inserting the multify command.
  2. After recompressing the phase files, you should now have all of the phase files ready to use.
  3. Drag your completed phase files to where you can find them, then search “~/Library/Application Support/Toontown Rewritten” and place the phase files onto the "resources" folder.

Linux (all variants)

Panda3D

  1. Download the latest stable version of Panda3D by visiting the website.
  2. Open a terminal and type "cd ~/Downloads"
  3. Type "tar -xzvf panda3d-1.8.1.tar.gz" (version number may differ)
  4. Type "cd panda3d-1.8.1"
  5. Type "python makepanda/makepanda.py --everything --no-gl --no-gles --no-gles2 --no-bullet" (it may take a very long time to finish)
  6. Type "python makepanda/installpanda.py --prefix /usr/local"
  7. Type "sudo ldconfig"

Note: Some dependencies may be missing for different distros but default packages for most major distros should work. Packages are also available for a few distros and may be easier to install.

Extracting the phase files

  1. Create a new folder and copy all the phase files from the Toontown Rewritten folder into it. For simplicity, these commands assume it is named "content_pack" and is located in your home folder.
  2. Open a terminal and type "cd ~/content_pack"
  3. Type "multify -x -f phase_3.mf"
  4. Repeat step 3 for all the phase files renaming the file accordingly
  5. You will notice that there are new folders created named after each phase file.

Recompressing the phase files

  1. Open a terminal and type "cd ~/content_pack"
  2. Type "multify -cvf phase_3.mf phase_3"
  3. Repeat step 2 for all the phase files renaming the files accordingly

Viewing the BAM files

From a graphical file manager

  1. Right click any .bam file you'd like to view and choose "Open with"
  2. In the search bar type "pview" and press ok

From the terminal

  1. Open a terminal and type "cd ~/content_pack"
  2. Type "pview path/to/file" (for example "pview phase_10/models/cashbotHQ/CBMetalCrate.bam")

To view the files in color, take a look at the steps found in the Windows section of this page. The steps are the same but with different file paths and hex editor.
