I need a little help guys

just a couple of hours back I was jerking around with DC SA2 on the PC with some hack converting tool bin2obj

This is e0203.bin - the Ark
IPB Image

& this is e0210.bin - the Ark observatory
IPB Image

Now these 2 files (e0203.bin & e0210.bin) were the only bin files who could be converted succesfully , other bin files were unsuccefully changed.

I have no idea where I got the prog since its been a long time when I downloaded this, nor who the author is
Well the prog has 2 files search.exe which writes a doc file & a converter.exe which well converts the bin to an obj file. And the files must be changed to in.bin

I'll probably upload this converter , maybe... lets say friday , unless somebody figures out more about this prog and who the author is

Now to the topic...

1.)I need some detailed explanation of all the files on DC SA2 disc & possibly some converters

adx , bin , prs , mpb , pvm , pvp , sfd , mlt , prs , scr

2.)Where are the character,enemy models stored?

Same program you used. First, though, you have to decompress some of the .PRS files with models in them.

^ You can find Nemesis's .PRS tools at both of the above
http://mikelim0.cjb.net:1337/lightning/...S%20Extract.rar
^ One that I made based on Nemesis's (his is probably more efficient anyway =P)

.ADX is music. .SFD is video. .PRS is the data compression format that Sega's been using since Saturn. .PVR is the texture format used by most Dreamcast games. .PVM is an archive of a bunch of .PVR files.

They tend to be the *MDL.PRS files.

The .bin files are PRS files. Use Nemesis' decompressor to extract the PVM inside, and use a PVM extractor to get the PVR's. (Then use my GemsPVR tool to convert them to BMP)

Where can I get this GemsPVR tool? I've managed to unpack down to PVR but the viewer thingie i've been trying to use errors, and so does susie.

edit: has anyone considered throwing together a little tutorial or something about the common dreamcast formats and how to get them into something useable? I'd be glad to go through my burn collection to help figure out which games use the formats.
