Question Perfect Dark XBLA Model/Texture extraction

First I have to ask, is Ice Mario around here? someone told me that Ice Mario is around these forums. if he is, does he come often? Please let me know.

Anyways,

Hello everyone, I was wondering deeply. And I mean deeply, if it was such possible to obtain the models from PD xbla. I'm came as far as to (I guess) opened the pd xbla file by copying it to a usb drive, and using a program called Lefluffie to open the PD XBLA file with no extension named:
Code:
4287CC74C591DB37B577DAEA43BB6E51692D7A8E58 with a size of 244 MB (size of the XBLA download)
And came across this file named: "PackedSegFile"... its another file with no extension, but I've read this file contains the maps and, or models data. problem is, how do I access it. Lots have said you'd probably have to decompress it first, as its compressed, and any (I quote) "raw contents will be nonsensical; since data is 'missing' (compressed into patterns of smaller values)"

you can download the containments of what was in the "xbla game file from xbox 360." If that made sense. So you'll know what I'm talking about.

http://www.mediafire.com/download/y1...8Ripped%29.zip

(Ripped using Lefluffie app)

I believe Ice Mario had some success opening (decompressing) the textures.raw file. here:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/hb...1/Textures.raw

explaining how he did the Pd xbla texture comparisons

Now its time to open the heart of the operation... PackedSegFile

Please help!

You're likely going to get better help from SubDrag.

Okay, does Subdrag come here often, or not?
I can't believe Ice Mario has gone with the wind.

He's still exists, just not involved with the N64 hacking scene. Sub is absolutely, and comes around pretty regularly.

Ice Mario, why? Why? I REALLY needed your help with this. Hopefully Ice Mario will come back around one day.

Do you really think Subdrag could help me (Specifically with Perfect Dark XBLA)? And which way is best to contact? Private Message or Visitor Message?

Subdrag is HUGE on Goldeneye and Perfect Dark hacking. He's definitely the one to go to here.

You can use the GEDecompressor to rip it, I'd imagine, since it's zlib, using Perfect Dark. It's possible they used new compression too, or most of it is uncompressed. The beginning of the file looks to index the rest of it. I don't really delve into XBLA hacking though.

GEDecompressor, where could I retrieve this, nevermind,

were you referring to the PackedSegFile I mentioned? that's the file that holds everything.

He has some parsing of the file formats, and mentions that most of the files are a gzipstream.

Question

I've seen that before... those where a list from .xex file, right? But just a "list of what's inside the packedsegfile, right? and the packedsegfile defines the actual sizes of this items.

hmm... looks to show every object in the game (a closer look)

what is gzipstream? is it that program that is used along with the GEDecompressor?
