DUST 514 is an F2P FPS available on PSN and is a counterpart to EVE Online.

Code: Select all

and I'd like to be able to add character models and small arms to it. Mr Mouse has permitted me to post the official (PSN) download links:

Code: Select all

The patch is only for people who want all the content.

These are two tools you will need, a PKG unpacker and a PSARC unpacker.

Code: Select all

I unpacked the PKG and it seemed the standard UE3 layout with a CookedPS3 folder instead of a CookedPC. The CookedPSARC folder contained standard PS3 packages that can be unpacked with the tool above. It produced a lot of XXX, TFC, other UE3 files so I copied them to CookedPS3.

Then I used Gildor's uModel tool to try and unpack them all with the -ps3 -uncook -sounds tags. This is where I run into problems. It unpacks animations and textures, but no meshes or sounds, and 99% of the textures were stripped to 64x64. CharacterIcons_SF.xxx extracts perfectly.

The uncook option groups everything in identifiable folders. GA, CA, AM and MI are faction prefixes, WP for weapons, CH for characters, etc. I contacted Gildor but he says he can't reverse engineer PS3 games for his tool. Any help?

Well it seems Ravioli Explorer can handle the sounds fine.
