Giana Sisters : Twisted Dreams - Owltimate Edition .pak files

Post by GianaSistersFan64 » Sat Nov 14, 2020 11:14 pm

I extracted the rom file of Giana Sisters : Twisted Dreams - Owltimate Edition and came across with many pak files.
Usually, using helldorado.bms QuickBMS script works for extracting Twisted Dreams pak files, but this time it didn't worked because the pak files from Owltimate Edition use the RPMC compression.
I tried to use http://aluigi.altervista.org/bms/topgun.bms, but it didn't worked either.

Here's an sample file : http://www.mediafire.com/file/ljvydxwch ... s.zip/file
Helps would be very appreciated! :)

Any one interested? because maybe writing a QuickBMS script by basing it from topgun.bms and helldorado.bms could make it possible.

Ok, I think that I have figured that out.
Here you can see tool and documentation https://github.com/bartlomiejduda/Tools ... d%20Dreams

This tool decompress gzip compressed blocks and creates SBPACK archive
which can be later unpacked with http://aluigi.zenhax.com/bms/helldorado.bms
using "r" option.

I will also update Xentax Wiki later. :)

Of course, here is the instruction:

1. Install Python 3
2. Change paths at the end of the script
3. Run script in Python using cmd or some IDE like "Wing IDE"

Code: Select all

python script.py
Also this may be helpful https://www.google.com/search?client=fi ... hon+script

When i try it, it gives me this error :

Code: Select all

SyntaxError: (unicode error) 'unicodeescape' codec can't decode bytes in position 2-3: truncated \UXXXXXXXX escape

You may have wrong paths defined. You need to use double backslash "\\", for example:

Code: Select all

C:\\Users\\SomeUser\\Desktop\\PAK\\animations.pak

Here is bms script, which is doing the same thing (converts pak to sbpack).
