This is a forked PKG Merge update by me (@ColdFire0 aka aldoblack) that merges your downloaded retail PS4 .PKG updates. It was throwing one error 'assumed root PKG file doesn't match PKG magic' so I fixed it and added some other functionalities:
  • Added support for MacOS.
  • No need to be in the same directory with the executable.
  • When clicking on executable file, a pop-up will be shown to select the folder.
  • You can also drag and drop like it used to be.
It's still in beta, so those in the PlayStation 4 Scene feel free to report any issues you may run across. I tested it on Immortals: Fenyx Rising, Watch Dogs: Legion and Doom Eternal and I was able to merge and install the updates.

Download: PKG Merge Update v3.0b (MacOS / Windows) / GIT / pkg_merge-win.zip (2.67 MB - includes pkg_merge.exe, msvcp140d.dll, ucrtbased.dll and vcruntime140d.dll)
  • pkg_merge-macos.zip
  • pkg_merge-win.zip

I'm looking for a tool that can merge basegame and update in one fpkg.
The top would be a tool that works in batch

@Aladin Toel it's just a merge. I have updated that when you click of the software, a pop up will be shown to choose the folder. I can try and write a gui on this if it's necessary.

@Aftershocker @Zanta unfortunately no. It's a simple pkg merge. To merge base game and update it needs more work. I have to check the app-dumper payload source code on how they make the merge in order to implement it.

hi the windows one of this is not working for me it says this message when i open it up: pkg merge.exe system error at the top of this it says that.

in the middle it says this the code execution cannot proceed because ucrtbased.dll and msvcp140d.dll and vcruntime140d.dll was not found. reinstalling the program may fix this problem.

so does anyone know of anyway to get this to work for windows?

i really want to use this to merge all the dlc pkg files of marvel vs capcom infinite cos there is over 50 pkg files of dlc i want to merge them into 1 pkg file and other ps4 pkg files that have more than 1 pkg file.
