I check occasionally, best to just ask and people can try to help once they check in. :)

I'll do my best to answer questions related to this.

BUMP.


With all 3 Ninja Gaiden games going in-game with RPCS3 emulator and Ninja Gaiden Sigma being fully playable, I am hoping to see an increase and revival in mod activity.

Using Protocol's tools ( thank you Protocol ), I was able to extract from the AFS files and now I was wondering how might I go about doing a simple costume swap replacing the default or maybe sky blue retro outfit with the long sleeve & traditional ninja garb Ryu features in the beginning of the game?

Wow, thanks for sharing that. I didn't even know about that emulator. Not a problem on the tools, I hope people find them helpful. Unfortunately, I don't know the other KT formats as well as DOA5, but part of the challenge will be keeping file sizes the same until someone knows how to pad or shift addresses around. My best guess would be to start with addresses of the images within any one of the containers. With that you could jump to the image location in hex, and then paste a modified image (if it's the same byte size) over the old one. After doing that it should be possible to past the modified container back into the afs. That's all in theory of course if the game does not run any other kind of byte checks. :-/ I don't have real specifics on that at the moment, because I forget this stuff real easily when I'm away from it for more than a few days.

So does that emulator run DLC as well? NG games are the only reason I'm hanging onto my PS3, I would love to consolidate if I know Sigma 2 DLC works correctly.

All DLC works just fine in all Ninja Gaiden games via RPCS3. I've completed Sigma 1 on the emulator numerous times including all the missions and survival dlc with no issue.

Sigma 2 and Razor's Edge the same though they have minor kinks that need to get worked out before they become playable.

Still, the graphics render correctly and you can go about in game on both no problem.

This forum is for ripping models and content from videogames for modding pupouses, It's not a forum dedicated to emulation.

Easy killer, he was just replying to my question which was indirectly related on account of the file format discussion he brought up. Yes, that's what it is for, but I was just curious since I didn't even know that emulation of the stuff was possible. Sometimes it is helpful to ask someone knowledgeable on a subject since Google can't actually answer everything otherwise this forum wouldn't exist either.

@koonbozorg, Thanks for answering. I did figure stuff out, but for some reason NG2 didn't work. I'll leave it at that or PM, so things get back on topic.

From what I understand after reading and testing a bit with the tools only the model of the Vita version are extractable.

I am not familiar with the vita version but I assume the files are stored in the LNK file of the vita game just like DOA5.
I extracted NG2 Plus Vita version with the DOA5Archivarius tools and got a the GMD and TMGL files as expected.

But when I tried to use the NG2Mesh Helper on them, I got some kind of index error.
I think I messed up and used the wrong tool to open that LNK files.

Can someone tell me what I need to use correctly get the files inside that LNK file?

You have to check force decompression in Archive Tool 1.2.1. Not sure if Archivarius has an equivalent. After that the files you get are going to be gigantic, a bunch of junk data (00s, and the sizes produced vary from file to file pair-ttgl/gmd) has to be stripped from the end of the file using a hex editor. Worth leaving an even number of 00 bytes (16 or 32) after the legit data just in case a few of those are needed. The UVW will need to be flipped and possibly moved upward a bit to realign with textures properly.

So has anyone been able to fully extract models with the "Ninja Guts v1.1 that was posted?
