Thanks to @Rin Tohsaka for the suggsestion. Here are some links to the non fucked up version of the thread. Reminder : If you want to help expand this thread or format it feel free to do so. I am not active anymore so please contact moderators. __________________________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________________________ Long time idea. If for whatever reason you need some data from a game, would it be music, sprites, CG's and if like me you SUCK with computers, well worry no more because I have the solution for you. How is this thread going to work ? - All the info is going to be centered in the two first posts, first one will be File types, second one will be Versatile tools. - I'm going to explain the process to extract for each file type. If you don't know what type a VN uses, look into your game file dummy! - However, some applications were specificly made to extract files from some Visual Novels in particular. If that is the case it will be specified. - Contributions are highly appriciated. Either PM me with the extraction process thoughfully explained or post in this thread with the same kind of format that I will use. - If ever you extract files from a game which wasn't verified or not listed with one of these methods, please report it and tell us what was is in each file. Thank you. I am not a coder, none of these applications are mine. The sole purpose of the thread it to regroup the scatered information you may hardly find online. PM me if there is a link problem. _____________________________________________________________________ .xp3 Files Fate Stay/NightVerified File Types Sharin no Kuni, Hinawari no ShoujoVerified Kara No ShoujoTo be Verified Warning : If extracting "Fate Stay/Night" add "game=FSN" in Param unless you want the .tgl files xp3tools Method Open your command prompt and type Press Enter, It should change what is on the left side of the > cd D:/VNs/WorldEconomica Now we want to unpack.

Thanks to Blizzard884 for this .rpa Files .int Files Downlad exkifint.zip by Clicking here Create a folder where you want to extract your folder Copy the .int file you want to extract in the said folder. Now right click on it : Open with > chose the default program > get exkifint_v2.exe Whether you use v1, v2 or v3 doesn't seem to have any logic. For me v2 works but v3 doesn't. Now you just have to wait and be patient for the extracting to end. If you extracted Image.int : Okay you are allowed to cry for a second. Now the files in all that mess which interest us are the .hg3 files ! Create a new folder in which you will copy/cut all of these. Unless you want to decompress everything (good luck son) here are a few things about the way they are sorted. Right click the file of the group of files selected > Open with > chose hgx2bmp.exe This will create .bmp files which are bitmap files. See the .bmp filessection to see how to open them.

We can't do much with that so we want to turn them into BMP files. Download Yuno_gp8tools.zip which is linked at the beginning of the spoiler tag.

(It takes some time obviously) Resources extraction (sprites, CGs, etc): 1) Download NSAout here, extract it 2) Copy the "nsaout.exe" you just unrar'd into you VN repertory (the one where the arc*.nsa files are) 3) Run nsaout.exe You will get an "arc" folder with everything in it.

You may extract a .PRS file using the second bundled bms script by typing in command prompt : You will obtain "CHR041.PRS.unpacked" which should actually be renamed as "CHR041.TM2" quickbms.exe _princess_nightmare_prs_unpacking.bms CHR041.PRS Use the _convert_tm2.cmd batchfile to convert .TM2 files into .PNG. It relies on the official GimConv tool for this and you may repack the other way with this same tool and an adequate set of commandline switches.

Basiclly, what we want is in the DATAX.AFD files. And we are going to extract Everything. Download this Extract it so that all these files are with/next to the DATA files and the .exe. Long story short : exs4alf unpacks ALF files, agf2bmp turns AGF files into BMP images. The "Unpack Data Files" are batch commands that will allow you to convert everything at once \o/. Click on Unpack Data Files.bat and wait until the command prompt disappears (If it's still there but not doing anything, it still is, trust me) 5 new folders will appear : http://i.imgur.com/NlVhGHH.jpg Data 3/4/5 have formats which shouldn't be a problem to open. Data 1-2 however partly contain AFD files, which are images/CG's/sprites. In order to extract them copy/paste these (all the tools) into the DATA1 (Or DATA2) folder : http://imgur.com/oU9Kqg2.jpg They aren't all necessary, but meh. Then run Unpack Data1 Images.bat (Or Unpack Data2 Images.bat) This should create BMP files. To open or make modification to those, see the .bmp Files section. If you want to repack BMP files into AFD just save as Name.afd and it's done (Be careful not to mess with the alpha channel if you actually want to make modifictations to the game) Source,Source Credit goes to asmodean for the tools and Aroduc for the batch commands. .gxp Files .rio Files Muv-luv Alternative Verified Download riox-184.108.40.2060 right here (Click on "Current version") Extract it where you want Launch RioX.exe then browse right to to "Extract from" and choose the .rio file you want to extract.
