    Hi guys,

    So I can easily extract Xenoblade's ".pkh" archive format using this QuickBMS script made by Falo. My question is...how can I extract a pkh, edit some files, and then make it a working .pkh file again?

    I tried using QuickBMS's "repack" tool but no dice with the bms script I used before. It seems like it has to be modified.

    I'm trying to replace cutscenes, but I first have to figure out how to replace character models, as that's much easier.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    well since I don't know anything about coding or crap, I'll give you my guess.
    if the pkh file is in separate files then archive it as a rar, then edit the filename to "blahblah.pkh"
    if it's still in one piece, look for a save button, because I don't know.

    Nevermind, I figured it out. Use this guide I just made.
