Dragon quest Rivals ace (PC)

Post by Enkidu115 » Mon Feb 08, 2021 10:10 am

I'm interested in extracting the files of the game, but i don't know where to start or if others have already developed a tool for it. in the files there is 2 folders, Chara and Data- i thought that it would be easy to find the files where the characters may be, but when i checked it, it only had 2 folders for characters, with that for the two folders it had one .c3b file and a .tga- which i don't think it is a tga file as when i try to open it, it fails to open. if i had to guess, character 1 and 2 are Terry and Jessica, as those are the two characters in the tutorial while the game finishes downloading, I thought that when it was done it would add more files to the folders but nope, i don't know if the rest of the assets are. either they are in the .bins in the data folder, or stored somewhere else on my pc. if anyone is willing to help that will be appreciated.

I checked it before. The PC and mobile versions have compressed and encrypted files for cocos2D.
The Switch version can acquire unencrypted data. I was able to play c3b on Cocos Editor, but there is no way to convert it.

Files for DQ Rivals cannot be loaded with previously someone created Noesis or blender plugins.
I'm no longer interested in this game and have deleted all the files so I can't do any new information or validation.
Reverse animation file is a genius's job. However, animation tracing can be done by anyone with time and patience.

The service will end soon. All I have is the terry file I tried during the test.
In the PC / Mobile version, the files are compressed and encrypted. Only the Switch version is unencrypted and available.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

I could not find any way to convert c3b files. (I found a converter that can convert fbx to c3b though).
Cocos supports playing c3b files, but there is no way to export them. Also, I don't know how to import animated c3b files.

How can I import 3D model c3b/Animation c3b into Noesis?

It is possible to play c3b models and c3b animations by creating your own viewer with Cocos Editor. I did it before. However, it is just the content that is played in the cocos engine, and it cannot be converted to a general file such as fbx.
As a general, cocos files are irreversible. Also, since it works with OpenGL, Ninja Ripper cannot be used.

cocos2d is open source so someone could make a noesis plugin to load them if they want.

I actually made a script for that game with anim support a while ago, completely forgot to release it. Will clean it and release it this week

Why did I bother... Fortunately it was simple enough
