    i was about to mess a little bit with the tagforce-game-files within the iso to mod some text/graphics, but unfortunately, most of the files are packed in an (for me) unknown file-format
    the card graphics are packed into a *.cip file
    texts, like card-effects, card-names, and so on are packed into *.ehp files, as well as some charakter graphics

    a searched around, but couldn't find any unpacker/extractor for those file-formats

    so now, i'll try my luck here [IMG]
    any helpful information, how to extract/unpack these sort of files?
    did someone maybe got a tool, that would do this for me?

    thanks [IMG]

    When I googled .cip files I see that it's either a kind of encrypted file (cryptolocker) or a ghost keylogger file. If it's encrypted you would have to decrypt it. That could get messy [IMG].

    .ehp is a helpl logic program file. Some sources say that you might be able to use notepad? Seems a bit wierd but what do I know.

    Dunno if these findings are correct, they might be more common in DS-roms and such and have another way of getting open.

    in Yu-Gi-Oh 5, the EHP andd CIP files are actually unencrypted packed GIM files.
    There are some CIP/EHP files that don't contain any GIM files (like card\cardj256_a.cip)


    Here is picture from the file "\field\map\bg_01a.ehp" (GIM file #41)
    [IMG]

    Here is a picture I extracted from the file "card\cardh_e.cip" (GIM file #10)
    (That file contains a lot (2429 total) of small 5kb files like this)
    [IMG]

    And here is one from database\charalist.ehp (GIM file #18)

    To extract them, you can use a program called 'textER'
    (aka "Textures Extractor/Reinserter v1.0b6 by Vash")
    its a command line program, to extract, use this command:
    TextER -e [filename.cip/ehp] -gim

    you will get your GIM files, to convert these to PNG
    you'll need a tool called 'GIMCONV', also a command line program:
    Gimconv [input.gim] -o [output.png]

    Here is a package I put together with the tools and a few helpful batch files.
    one to batch extract CIP/EHP files and one to batch convert GIMs to PNGs
    Download: http://www.mediafire.com/?68lktqjei1fxduy

    Tested and works on most of the CIP and EHP files in Yu-Gi-Oh 5 (USA), could work on the older games too...

    but now im screwed, because one file is encrypted, so ican't translate it [IMG]

    It probably lacks the batch files but http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/659/ should be what you are after.

    I will have a poke around my machine to see if I have the original link though and edit this post later if I find it.
