Firstly I apologize if this is in the wrong section but I didn't know where else to put it and as it is about character artwork in a sense I thought it would do here.
I'm posting this in the hope that Pyriel or some other technical wizard can help me in trying to either locate or Rip the character models from Suikoden V. So far I have copied all the files from the disk and downloaded the Rom files from the iso-zone and I haven't been able to open either of the main DATA.PAK files they contain, which I am assuming contain the model data for the characters and landscapes etc., although if I'm wrong in this thought please tell me.
Anyway I'm in the middle of a, project, and I would really like to get my hands on the renders so that I can use/edit/make my own copies of them in Blender to create characters of a similar size and style. But I've been unable to locate anything
even remotely similar to what I need on the internet. The only 1's I've found available were for SII and they are in 2D format which is of no use. So if anyone has any idea how
I can acquire even a base model without having to build one from scratch it'd be appreciated. And I know this is maybe not your field as such Pyriel, but we all know how well you have been able to read and correct the coding of SII by your patch releases, so again I am assuming you managed to get into the base game files in order to find the errors. Although I do realize that 5 is a PS2 game and probably a whole different ball game. But if someone has managed, or knows the steps how, it'd be hugely
appreciated. Thanks guys!!
(Although maybe I'll put up a poll in another topic to see what graphical style people preferred in their Suikoden games. Would 2 have been a better game if it looked like 5, and vice versa? If anyone has any thoughts on this let me know, but with the tools at our disposal nowadays 3D seems like the logical choice.)
