### Introduction ###

This is a simple application designed to preview and export pictures made with your phone in GTA V for PC.

At the time of this writing, uploading pictures to R* Social Club was not working for some people.

You can use this as a workaround, but it will also help if you just want to share your pictures by other means.

Important! The application will only access Snapmatic image files. It doesn't need anything else from your GTA V profile in order to export pictures.

### Loading files ###

Use the File menu to start loading pictures.

Opening a folder will clear the current list and load all Snapmatic pictures in it, but not subfolders.

By default the application will look your Documents for Rockstar GamesGTA VProfiles and select the first profile. Otherwise you can browse wherever you like.

Loading a single file will append it to the current list.

### Managing pictures ###

You can click on the columns to sort pictures. Click twice to change the order.

Highlighting a picture entry will load it in the preview window.

Use the checkboxes to specify the pictures you want to export.

You can also highlight multiple files with Ctrl or Shift + click and then use the right-click menu to select them.

You can rename a title by clicking twice on it (not a fast double-click).

The new title is only used when exporting the picture, if you have activated this setting. It will not be saved in the original Snapmatic file, these will always remain untouched.

### Application settings ###

The Options menu provides export and preview settings. All settings are saved for the next session.

"Use title as filename" is the previously mentioned option that will export your pictures using their title instead of the original PGTA5########## filename.

Activating this will enable "Add time & date to filename" in order to make filenames unique, which is recommended unless you manually enter unique titles.

Note that the application will not overwrite any files that already exist.

"Export metadata log" will save a text file along with each picture that contains game-related data such as picture coordinates and modes.

You can also view this data in the preview window by activating "Show metadata overlay".

The "Zoom image" option will automatically scale pictures when you resize the window.

"Resize window to fit image" is a one-click command that will resize the application window to match the original picture size. Note that the file list panel is not resized by this.

### Exporting ###

To export pictures use the File menu or right-click menu to export either all or just the ones selected.

You can save them in the same path as Snapmatic files or you can choose a custom destination.

The app will extract image data "as is", without altering or re-encoding it. So far I have only encountered JPEG data, but the code can handle unknown types.

Snapmatic files also contain additional data that is unknown at this point. At first glance it looks like 3D data which could be somehow related to the map.

Gameloft PIG to FBX converter
by Chipicao - www.KotsChopShop.com

Models feature normals, texture coordinates (2 channels), hierarchy and materials.

The tool will also decompress textures from newer Asphalt versions into usable pvr files. You will of course need a plugin from PVRTexTools.
All you have to do is keep the models and textures folders in the same place.

Usage:
- .NET Framework 3.5 required
- drag&drop a pig file on the exe
- run it in a folder to convert all pig files
- run it with a pig file or folder as parameter

Known issues:
- no support for Asphalt Overdrive; I believe AO pig files need further decompression

Description

This tool allows you to view .vec files from the Scibblenauts Unlimited and Scribblenauts Unmasked. .vec files contain the scalable artwork of the game in a mesh format.

To open a .vec file, either drag it on to the program icon, open it from within the program (open button or Ctrl-O), or drag and drop it on to the program window.

You can zoom in and out using the scroll wheel. Pan the view by holding the right mouse button and moving the mouse.

Options (press the key indicated):
W: toggle wireframe mode
A: toggle antialiasing
O: toggle outline paths

You can set the scaling factor by typing in the scale as a floating point number in the Scale field. Click outside the field to update. Click Reset Viewport to reset the position and scale of the graphic.

Click Render to choose the path of the PNG to render to. Exactly what you see on-screen will be rendered to file, except with a transparent background. The dimensions of the resulting PNG is the same as your window size. Click Export to export graphic to SVG at original scale. Note the polygons are not outlined when exporting since SVG will scale the outlines and things will look ugly. As a result, you may see gaps where each of the outline is supposed to be.

Source code is included.

Description

This tool unscrambles certain types of files from Gameloft games. These files are standard ZIP files that have their signatures altered and header data XOR encrypted. This tool will restore the file so it is readable as a standard .zip file. To use, drag and drop the scrambled ZIP (likely with a file extension of .gla), and the tool will write the unscrambled ZIP to the same path but with a .zip extension instead of whatever extension it had before. You can also specify the input path and output path on the command line if you don't like where the program puts the unscrambled file by default. Run without arguments to see help.

Note: This program is not designed for older versions of the scrambled ZIP files. Those versions only have their signatures modified. They can be easily converted back to a standard .zip with binary search and replace. For other .gla files, see the Gameloft .gla Extractor.

This tool can extract all data blocks from Beyond: Two Souls, including audio (SFX, Dialog, Music & Ambience (multi channel)), segs entries (and decompress them using QuickBMS), scripts and dialog text (very limited support right now).

It also partly works with Heavy Rain. Let me know if you want me to investigate those formats too.

Description

Star Fox Adventures (SFA) started as Dinosaur Planet on the Nintendo 64. It was awesome.
Later it was decided to turn it into a Star Fox game for the GameCube. It's still a pretty fun game, but not half as promising as Dinosaur Planet.
A while ago the kiosk version (for display at shops) of Star Fox Adventures was leaked.
Inside the files, people began finding things like all audio from Dinosaur Planet (midi), 1.5 hours of voice acting, the gametext and more.

Since then I have also been active in researching this game.
I've held an interview with Dinosaur Planet and Star Fox Adventures' lead developer Phil Tossell (Click here), and contacted many other team members as well.

(Devilot's note: the other tool is too big to upload here, so I am uploading only one)
