I'm trying to swap files in DOA5, or maybe even go as far as modding the characters in the game
the problem is the game developers have done there best to prevent this.
So I'm looking for people better educated in XEX disassembly and file compression.
First off we were able to extract an archive, decompress the files, and decrypt the XOR encryption. All thanks to the files being decompressed and un-encrypted in the 360s RAM :)
My fear however is that the decompression isn't being done correct, right now we're just using a general scanning tool that seeks out compressed blocks. we're finding that some decrypted files are off in random places through the file.
Also we have no method to re-compress at this time :(
A major problem right now, is that we can't swap files. example if a change a pointer in the archive file to read another location. it wont read the model at that location, the game just boots back to the dash with a dirty disc error.
I think the only way to take this further is if we can fully repack the archive files. Sadly I totally lack the skillset needed for this.
If anyone is interested please PM me, and I can provide you with more details on the current findings.
The PS3 File looks encrypted, and I'm not experienced enough with the PS3 scene to guess as to what its encrypted by O_o
however I've been working on a xbox360 conversion package, maybe you can test it?
Quick How To!
1.) Plug a USB storage device into your xbox360. Goto Storage and format the device as a usable xbox360 storage device.
2.) Copy all your screenshots from your HD to your USB Drive
3.) Unplug your USB Drive and Plug it into your PC
4.) Download "Party Buffalo". Press CTRL+D to bring up the Device Selector. Your USB Drive should appear! if not then your USB is not properly formated, or PB is unable to obtain file access...
get Horizon here (Others recommend as an alternative)
5.) Now navigate your USB pen to the following folder DATA\<YOUR PROFILE>\4B5607DA\00000001\
which should contain files like ALBUM_________________ ... copy these to your desktop or something
6.) Extract the Conversion package I provided uptop into its own folder. then copy your screenshot files into that folder.
7.) Double-Click on "_CONVERT.BAT" and tell me what happens...
