Was away so couldn't try your sample earlier, it indeed crashes since most of you took the release that is specific to Persona Strikers on PC, which had encryption. As a result some of your files got corrupted. Make sure that you're extracting using 1.2.0 and everything will work as stated above by Jacien.

Does this work for the samurai warrior series of games? If so can someone give me the exact commands please? I'm sorry. Usually I try to figure things out my own and not bother others, but without a start guide, I'm just lost on what games this works on; And what precise command lines to use.

I know from the repo that you've stopped development on the tool, but I'm having an issue with it that I'm sure isn't a toolwide bug - when I try to use the DataExporter for Three Houses files, the output stops after it states that it's loading the filelist for ThreeHouses-link and it gives me an open prompt like it's finished the process. I'm running it on Ubuntu under Wine, which might be the problem, but if there's something else that might be causing this then I'd like to figure it out.

The UV Maps are coming up broken on certain meshes like with this one. This is d37edda3 by the way.

I've used Cethleann.Unbundler to export G1M files from a bin archive.
Is there a way to also rebundle those G1M files back into a bin archive?

Hello,

I recently started exploring extracting Age of Calamity game asset files (RDB) and came across an issue while using Cetheann.DataExporter .
For some reason the RDB and BIN files shown in the screenshot are skipped; there doesn't seem to be any error causing this (at least none thrown to the CLI), so I'm not really sure where to go from here. Has anyone had similar issues or know a solution?

EDIT: I'm just dumb. The rdb file was missing. I hadn't realized rdb.bin would not suffice.

I've been trying to deduce the compression algorithm used for the Ninja Gaiden Master Collection, but have repeatedly struck out. The databin tells me nothing--at least nothing obvious--and though I've read up a bit on this suite of tools, how to employ them is just over my head at the moment. Is anyone able to help investigate this with me?

Code: Select all

C:\Users\****\Downloads\Cethleann\Cethleann.DataExporter.exe --linkbin C:\Users\****\Desktop\here "C:\Games\WARRIORS OROCHI 3 Ultimate Definitive Edition" 
However after "[FileList] Loading filelist for unknown-archive" nothing happen.

I also tried with --no-filelist but still nothing happen. Is there anyone that succeded in extracting the data ?

Is there a way to repack/build an .rdb/.rdb.bin file with this (or any other tool)? Specifically trying to repack Stranger of Paradise .rdbs.

I'm really hoping someone can assist me.
I've ripped everything from Nioh 2, but for the life of me I'm having a huge issue trying to get the textures at their correct sizes.
I ran the .g1t file through the nioh2 application provided in the FFSNT zip, the unbundler in Cethleann, **and** the deprecated fmt_g1m script and all of them provide either dds files that are unsupported on both Photoshop and Paint.NET, or are no larger than 125x125. Could someone tell me the process to properly extract the textures at their proper resolution?

Heyo,

Sorry for the bother but since I updated to W11 , Cethleann doesn't work anymore ( or at least, Unbundler.exe doesn't ).

I'm on winver 21H2 , and I installed net framework. so I don't know if this is a known issue or am I doing something wrong?

Kind regards

hi SonofUgly, i recently tried to extract RRPreview.rdb contents and a bit confused now. by any chance do you know which files considered as BGM?

most of content i've converted to KOVS were character voices & cutscene dubbings (: :o
