Looking for THPS3 PS2 .pre files extractor

Postby Demo » Sun Nov 20, 2011 2:53 am

The tools I found are either crashes finding unknown header or doesnt read anything at all. Is there a working tool, or maybe way to run these tools without errors.

They should be standard .pre files.
Could you open one of the pres in a hex editor and check if bytes 4 - 8 are 0x0200CDAB?

Could you upload one of these problem pres? I'd like to make sure nothing else is different with PS2 pres.

Thanks.
All 4 files are legit pre2 version pre files. All load without error.
This tool still needs some stuff to ensure full pre4 support but a beta isn't to far away.

I don't know of any tool released to the public that can handle these pre's. Most tools wont handle them properly even if they do work.
My tool does and that's what I know. However, pre4 files have an added value to the pre header which is the full file size uncompressed and i need to do some stuff to insure the pres will still play properly on the psp. I can only hope this value can be null'd without complications.

P.S.
lol love the how to be pro although very dated and leet speak is bad, never use it no matter what.

Sure i can, Just send me some *.pre files from the game in a PM or a reply to this topic so i can look at it and see if it works with PREreaper, otherwise, I'll add support for the format for my tool if it's not the same

The files you provided aren't *.pre containers, i'm assuming they are model files though, I could find a way to import them to Blender, Just as soon as i find out how the file is structured or possibly make doc of the structure, But if you have *.pre files from any Activision Published game (Like MTX Mototrax for example), I could extract them
