How to use unren to extract rpa packages

You can extract RPA archives (using built in rpatool), decompile RPYC files (using built in unrpyc), enable the console and developer menu for Ren’Py games and more.

No dependencies, no internet connection required. You can right click->edit to see the source. Works on Windows 7, 8 and 10. XP and Vista users might need this PowerShell update from Microsoft: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968929

Instructions to use unren:
1. Copy UnRen.bat to either the game’s root directory (where the exe is) or the /game/ folder
2. Double click on UnRen.bat to execute
3. Select the option you require

Both RPA and RPYC files will be extracted/decompiled to the same path as the original files.

Known Issues:
– Having non-ASCII characters in your folder path may cause issues

Download UnRen and unzip the script. Place it where you like. There are 2 ways to run it:

  1. Double click on UnRen.command. This will open a Terminal window that will allow you to drag (or type the path to) the app you want to work on.
  2. Run UnRen.command from the command line. You can provide the path to the app on the command line, or type it in when UnRen asks for it.
  3. UnRen runs in bash. Other shells may or may not work. Do NOT run UnRen with “sh UnRen.command” if your sh is not bash. Instead, if you run it from the command line, run it with a full path, or “./UnRen.command”.


  1. I get an ‘unable to locate python.exe’ error. Not a programmer, so how to use unren if the game does not contain python files/folder??

    Or how to use in general with standalone rpa archives not in a game folder at all??

    Also tried to use the source rpatool from the link on this page , but (again) not a programmer. If I could run the (extension-less) tool I can follow the instructions and enter the commands, etc. But how do I start the damn program?? There is nothing in the directions saying where to put the file and how to start it up, and it has no extension and double-clicking it does noting.

    I ended up using a tool called rpaExtract.exe (iwanplays.itch.io/rpaex) and that worked for me…although if that tool is known in this community and I should NOT be using it for any reason, please post. 🙂

      1. Thứ nhất, hãy chắc chắn trong đường dẫn của bạn không có các ký tự như – hoặc _ ! Thứ 2, Hãy tải Unren phiên bản mới nhất (Unren 1.0.1) ! Thứ 3, hãy đặt vị trí của unren vào đúng file game ( Nơi có chứa chương trình .exe hoặc đại loại thế. Và bước cuối cùng chính là tải 1 game khác của renpy và coppy file lib của game đó sang game bạn đang gặp lỗi !
