I've been trying for a while to crack the ANCS format for Metroid Prime, it contains scenegraph information for models, such as it's skeleton (CINF), skinning(CSKR) and animations (ANIM), and I have it mostly figured out, however there is one section that I can't seem to figure out. It's the PAS4 section, it seems to define particles and I can see a definite pattern, however I can't seem to make the pattern fit the header.
I've attached a few examples of ANCS with PAS4.

Any help would be appreciated.

As you can see, there is a definite pattern, but I can never make it work for some reason.

I've been taking a closer look at PAS4 and there seems to be a fairly static size depending on the first integer after the magic, will need to investigate further before making that assumption though.
Also, there is a list of SWHC IDs in some of the ANCS files I've looked at, and I've now accounted for that as well.

Perhaps MrAdults would know, Noesis can extract the models.

Wow, I forgot about this thread, ANCS has long since been figured out, as a matter of fact we now have the ability to extract every animation in the game as well.
