How decompress a .uz file?

I received 2 files in .uz format, anyone know how I use it? I tried this but I received the message the file maybe is encrypted...

To decompress a .uz file you have to open your CMD, change directory to the UT/System folder.

Then once you are there, make sure that .uz file is in the System folder.

Then type ucc decompress filename.uxx (.uxx is the extension name.)

I think that should be 'filename.file extension.uz' (.uxx is the extension for files in the cache) - at least that's what I do and it works.

UXX is not a compressed file it's just renamed like that.

Number 1)
UT files in UZ format can be decompressed with ucc decompress drive:\path\filename.ext.uz
I did this X times when I downloaded files required for maps from known redirects because maps were shared without required files...

Number 2)
UZ files compressed in whatever U227 are not compatible with UT - take this in account.

Apparently I mentioned it wrong.

In general in the cache folder yes that extensions are always stuck under .uxx and converted by renaming.

And yes, decompress .uz always end in .uz extension. No idea what I was thinking there.

Ps. It's the same for XC_Engine to decompress LZMA files too.
