Well, thanks for your help. However, I have no programming or technical skills to mention so maybe it would be best if I just give this project up, unless someone could offer me a much more in depth explanation of exactly what I need to do. My area of expertise is medicine, not programming, but I've been cursed with a fondness for real-time-strategy video games and making maps and mods for them.
As for the legal issues involved, I read the eula and I don't think I'm in violation of it as it is written. Of course, that would ultimately be up to a court of law to decide, but I highly doubt what I plan to do with files once I access them would ever result in litigation. I'm not planning on ripping anybody off or reverse engineering a new product.
Any further instruction from some benevolent soul would be appreciated with the utmost fervor.
