Sonic 06's "standard.lub" file too powerful for mortal eyes

So over at the Lost Legacy Discord we've caught wind of an LUB file that's apparently not possible to decompile without heavy editing, as it allegedly contains non-LUA data that the XEX needs for the game to run. It seems to be an absolutely massive file - from what we can see, it might hold relevant data to Super forms, the Rainbow gem, homing attack delay/flips, and tons of other stuff that was cut from the final game.

Problem is that none of us can find exactly where said non-LUA data is in the file, to strip it and create a normal LUB. Here's the link - if this isn't okay, feel free to obliterate me :v: Attempting to decompile it using ShadowLag's 06 SDK leads to a massive file that loops a conditional after a certain point - and luadec just straight up doesn't work. So, if anyone wants to take a crack at it... Yeah.

What about the PS3 executable?

if I remember correctly the PS3 uses (mostly) the same files. I'm sure it's the same with PS3 only code bolted onto the front of it. The game is an alpha at best.

As far as Standard.lub, it's not the only lua that can't be decompiled. There's a few others. Of course this extends beyond my knowledge but if someone wants to have a crack at it

Bumping this. Please, if anyone has an idea of how to get around this, share it.
