Ok, basically what my issue is is I need to extract the model files from soul calibur 2 so I can get some screen caps for references. This shouldn't fall under warez or reverse engineering as it's my copy of the game, and I'm not planning on releasing anything from the package, and frankly, if you wanted to download the image, it'd be easy enough all ready since it's only about 4 years old ;P Anyhow, anybody have any clue how to go about doing this - keeping in mind that I can't utilize DX9 stuff...probably not even 8 dunno really. All I know is that ModelViewerWXD3D9_0.3 won't work. So, any and all ideas would be great. Frankly, I'd be just as happy with nice multi side pics of Soul Edge (Player 1 version) ;P

it actually does class as reverse engineering. however, since you don't sign an EULA for console games, i don't know the legality behind this one.

i'll see what i can dig up for you bro.

You need to get a program like ISObuster or PowerISO to extract the certain file which contains the model files but I have no idea which one but I did use my friend google and found this for you

If you do try it let me know if it works for you and leave back a reply if so theres a few models I wouldn't mind try to get from a few of my games for ref's(For myself).

I don't think any of yaz0r's tools will work for me because of my vid card, but I'll try KHView and see if it can work on something that isn't KH. I know I couldn't get his newest viewer to work.

The only media I know how to extract are the sound/music files just so I don't have to listen to crappy American dubbed games.
I know what your going to say "Theres some good dubbed games out there" I do agree theres some but more then 80% are very bad and just don't have any emotion or feel to them like the Japanese dub's do. I don't know if its just their voices or what but Japanese voice actors act a lot better then American ones because when you watch a Japanese dub game/film whatever you can actually feel the tone in their voices which make it sound like their actually experiencing that moment unlike the American actors who sound fake and horrible and make you go "Oh god this is so cheesy!!!"

Anyways enough of my rambles if you want to learn how to extract the sound files let me know I got the tools you need to do it with!!!
