Allows editing of Just Cause 2 files. Use the Archive Viewer to extract a file from the .tab files. If its .BIN use Bin2Xml converter. Then edit with notepad (notepad++ is better).
Once edited, save then use XML2Bin converter to make a new .BIN with yor edits. Then move or copy the new .BIN into the "dropzone" folder (create one if not there, in games install root)

Please note that I have not put very much error handling into my tools, if one of the tools crashes, please post the stack trace.
Would appreciate it if requests for mods don't spam up this thread, I'd rather this be about modding the game and sharing what we've been able to do as well as helping each other.
