If I'm not mistaken, CPS3 ROMs are encrypted and there is no straightforward way at this time to extract graphics, edit them, and put them back in.

I don't search for a "simple" way or a shortcut, if the path is harsh I'll take it no matter what. I want to edit this game, it doesn't matter if that take hard work. I'll do it. If I have to learn how to rom hack, I'll do it.

I hardly believe it is impossible or too hard. We're talking about editing a stupid computer game file. 
I can't believe it is as hard as you make it sounds to be.

But my goal is to edit this game, I don't want to learn just for the pleasure to learn rom hacking.

All I need is someone who can tell me the right way to learn, in order to achieve my goal.

So, you told me CPS3 game are encrypted ? What that does mean in Rom Hacking ?

Does that mean that the linecode are not righted in common language ? Does that mean that I can't access to the system file ?

There must be a way to read the file inside the rom ?

I perfectly understand  ;)

I'll try to enumerate step by step what I do/plan to do.

I have the rom of the game I want to edit. I think if I want to start to edit ingame stuff, I have to edit the rom itself by the inside.

As you all know, you have to keep the rom zipped in order to play them. So i've unzipped the rom I want to edit, is there the good way to go ?
If it is, here's what I found :

A loads of unopenable files... So first, I think that I'll need a software to read them. Am I right ?

The rom I want to edit is a capcom play system III's game (cps3).
I want someone to tell me if I'll need a specific software for cps3 system, or if I could go with any of the rom editing system ?

I know that you don't mod a 1997's game with the same software you would need for snes game, so what kind of software will I need ?

Hi, i'm a new comer to the hack gaming's community. Please excuse me in advance for my rough english, i'm not that at my ease with it yet, do not hesitate to correct my mistake ^^

So, to make the history short, I'm a huge fan and a big gamer of the street fighter's serie, particulary of Street fighter 3 third strike on cps3 system.
I truly think it's a really good game, probably my favorite of all time. But to me, I kinda feel that the casting, some graphics elements and other details are somewhat "wrong".
So my goal is to correct what I feel wrong in the game in order to the game the way I really want it.

I don't understand a thing in game hacking, so I need to know if what I want to do is possible or not.

Here's my main goal :

- Remove some moves for some character, like enable a character to do a Hadoken for exemple.
- Edit the sprite of some character, add some graphic elements to them, like a pants or a hat for exemple. ( I know i'll have to redraw all sprite )
- Add some new stage from the earlier version of the game ( second impact ).
- Add some new minor stuff.

I know that if I want to change some character's graphics elements, I'll have to redraw the sprite frame by frame. I want to know if it's possible to include them ingame, and how ^^
