Playstation 2 - Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex .BIN

Post by asper » Sat Dec 09, 2017 11:48 am

Hi guys,

I recently played this great game for Playstation 2 and found that .BIN files contains an "fpk" header but it seems a proprietary format (I suppose it means "file PacKage"). I found a script on the forum but it doesn't work (99,9% sure the format is not the same as the supported one by the script tested).

I attach what should be the background music file (BGM.BIN) and a movie file (MOV00EU.BIN) with probably a proprietary subtitle file (MOV00EUS.BIN); is someone able to extract data from those archives ?

Game was released in 2004-2005.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your attention !!!


EDIT: I figured out BGM.BIN format:
Each audio file starts with "SShd" string; you then skip 8 words to arrive to the SShd file size (little endian word - the word just after another string: "SSbd"). I have problem making a script which will just look for "SShd" header, size and extract all of the files contained in the .BIN, can someone help me please ?

Done ! Thanks to a little hint by Luigi !

Extracted stream containers using this script: http://aluigi.org/bms/resident_evil_bin_fpk.bms

Then used VGM Toolbox:
Misc. Tools -> Extraction Tools -> Strem Tools -> Video Demultiplexer -> Select PSS (PlayStation Stream) -> Drag&Drop the extracted containers -> obtained .m2v (video) + ss2 (audio) files !

Well, I also used to play a video game like Battlefield and I know that PS is the amazing console which gives a unique experience to players.
