Newcomer's Board / A Question about UTF-16 LE
« on: May 30, 2013, 10:56:30 pm »
I know that this may seem to be a insane question since UTF-16 stores text as surrogate pairs xD, Is there in any such way that we can translate a file which has a LBA measure (meaning no changes to the filesize). I know that this is insane but UTF-16 stores the letter A as (00 41) which is crazy meaning one UTF-16 character is equal to a single ASCII character in size.

Newcomer's Board / [HELP] Batch File Creation
« on: May 29, 2013, 08:50:09 am »
Hello and Good Day,

I would like to create a batch file, wich I dont know how to make (n00b!). I am not much familiar on MSDOS Commands but on the contrary I only know a small portion of it.

The format would be this:

Legend: Program = prg, SourceFile = sf, Output = out

prog sf out

I would like to input a lot of source files " and-so-on" that would retain their original filenames but with a "_dec" on the end of the filename. Thank You


ROM Hacking Discussion / [PSP(CPK)/PS2 HELP] Mana Khemia 2
« on: May 28, 2013, 08:23:50 am »
Hello and good day,

I am working on a project based on Mana Khemia 2. And I direly need the resources of the game preferably the PS2 version. I have encountered various tools but to exract the files from the RPK.BIN but with no success, it seems that this tool: (which is exar2rpk.exe) can open the RPK.BIN from the PS2 version, but this tool is designed for Ar Tonelico since the 2 games are made by Gust, I assume that both have similar formats and also headers which are similar on both games. They say that a program called "lilie.exe" can extract archives from GUST games but they say that it is a paid app but if anyone has it and is willing to share you can also PM me (no intentions mentioned xD) :)

My main problem and would like to accomplish (as stated before) is that I would like to extract the contents/resources of RPK.BIN from the PS2 US Mana Khemia 2 Fall of Alchemy but the tool that is provided is made for the game Ar Tonelico, but basing on the src that is with the extractor, you can alter the code. Further about that, is that, I am not much versed on the PS2 format and have recently started tinkering things. By analyzing the src the key parts are the Name_Table_Offsets and the Offset_Table_Offset, unfortunately I cannot locate them even though I dumped a lot of RAM dumps and searched and searched and searched, since I am not well versed on the PS2 area. I only require extraction on this area, no more no less.

Secondary problem is the PSP JAP Mana Khemia 2 Portable +, the DATA.CPK which is within the psp backup/iso is not a problem since critools can decrypt and pack the archive but the problem arrives when it comes to the other *.CPK's I did a lot of modifications and alterations to some files but to no avail, and after a while I found this tool: which can extract the remaining *.CPK's which I am glad, but the problem is the files are arranged generated by ID's and becomes "headerless" (unreadable headers are generated on each of the files) which the tool recognizes the *.cpk's to only have ITOC and with no @UTF Table which is kinda hard to identify each individual files. So if possible I would like to extract files within these CPK's properly (with proper folder assignments and names and also extensions) and if possible compression also (back to a readable CPK)

If anyone is willing to help then I would gradually appreciate it. I would like to solve the 1st/Main problem first before the secondary. I extend my thanks to those who would help and would like to repay them in such a way that I can handle.
