    Hi, not sure if i post this here because I'm new but just wondering how can i unpack the data.cpk file extension in the game sigma harmonics. and i would also like to know how to unpack the .sdat files as well.

    sorry if i could've searched it with the search function but it came up with http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=109433 but the cri-tools.com site doesn't work anymore and i can't get the filemajik. want to know if there is another program that can help with this.

    thanks

    Might want to check my old abandoned thread: Sigma Harmonics Thread

    And since it was a free download from the official site, I guess I'll give you the Cri tools. If that's somehow against the board rules I'll remove it.

    CRI Tools

    Can't really remember what settings I used to unpack and pack, but I do remember that I only got it working with the console version of the cri tool.
    And when repacking, do it without any compression and use the chinese fanlations arm9.bin (cheating? [​IMG]) which has compression turned off.

    Good Luck

    Gambia, The
    Good luck!
    But why this game? Do you want to make a translation for it? Because if you only want to learn it would be better to start with a easier game.

    ah, I was actually bored and was wondering how people translate the games and i wanted to see the files inside as well lol =D
    but now I don't know what to do with all these files there are 8652 files lol. Don't know how to tell which are text files. the files start at ID00000 to ID08651 all in order lol.

    @valaquent: In my old thread I wrote down what a lot of the files are. The numbers are from the file names. I did make a program to give most of the files extensions but can't find it, might be for the best though since it wasn't 100% accurate anyways. Most of the files have their magic stamps which tell what they do, wrote about this in my old thread as well.

    @Noitora: Your welcome.
