It contains a list of all files that are read.
So game.rfa is read, but this list doesnt contain game_001.rfa so that file is not read
I wasn't asking about what can be read, I was asking about what archives can be patched. These archives are:

- texture.rfa
- standardMesh.rfa
- sound.rfa
- menu.rfa
- Map archives

You don't understand what I meant
Just check which files in the list have a _001
those can be "patched"

what you can also see from the list:
_002 will never work on archives, besides the level rfa (if im correct)

These files are the ones I just mentioned in my post above. How do you know _002 won't work? Did you test that.

Had a quick look in file monitoring tool to see what is being loaded
from OS perspective, and what it "tries" to find but does not exist.
Running DC mod. The same process would apply to any mod really.

The files below with _001 in the filename are the only ones that
seem patchable but no file i/o request above _001.

Shaders dont appear to be patchable as no attempt was done to try to
load a shaders_001, even if file exists.

But it does try to load shaders.rfa from within a mod.

"\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Archives\shaders.rfa"

"\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\DesertCombat\Archives\shaders.rfa" (file not found)
"\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\DesertCombat\Archives\texture_001.rfa"
"\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\DesertCombat\Archives\standardMesh_001.rfa"
"\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\DesertCombat\Archives\menu_001.rfa"
"\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\DesertCombat\Archives\sound_001.rfa"
