Tomorrow/today (depends) I shall start with the movie encoding and rebuilding the image. This will be just a test and practice to see how it is done.
Some little info on the game's image and structure:
This game's data is located in encrypted ROFS images ST.CVM and VOICE.CVM and as the filenames say, one of them contain voices and the other data. We will be looking at the data image only, unless someone is even going to dub it (which would be quite lame IMO).
To make it into a normal/unencrypted ROFS image, what you have to do is delete the first 00001800 (0x1800) part of the image and rename the file extension to iso and it will become a normal disc image like any other. I tried opening it up in Linux and it did not seem to work at first, but I was able to open it up later in Windows with UltraISO.
Some may say to just use Apache 3, but it crashes when you attempt to extract the files.
Alright, now onto the videos:
As I said earlier, this game uses the SoftDec video type, which is very similar or even identical to MPEG, and can be easily converted. But unfortunately enough, the video is encrypted, while the audio is not. Me and StorMyu (when he returns to Belgium) will look into that, but for right now even replacing the videos is enough, which I will be trying to do. If the unencrypting the videos fail, we can still record it off the real unit, although it would be a PITA to play the game throughout to see every video.
PITA = Pain In The Ass
