    Hey all,

    Having known that Mario Kart Wii uses a model format like Super Smash Bros Brawl, I was wondering if anyone could point me in the correct direction for a Mario Kart Wii model extractor, or if there's a SSBB one that works with MK Wii models as well.

    I'm just curious because I want to use a Character Model from Mario Kart Wii in one of my game projects (that's not commerical).

    I'm not asking for ROMs or whatever, so please don't ban me for this post... I'm just asking for a converter.

    Cheers,
    Coburn64.

    Two methods - if you want the files themselves, get an iso, open it in wiiscrubber and try to find the model files, though you will need some kind of converter.

    Or if you just need the 3D data, you can open it up in an emulator (i.e. Dolphin) and rip the model data using either an embedded tool in the emulator (not sure if there is one) or use a seperate tool.

    I have the model files, I need to know if there's a converter. [​IMG]

    If it comes to the worse, I'll use Dolphin or something.

    They were in SZS format... I used yaz0dec to decode them, and it spat out a RARC.

    Looked at the result RARC, and it's got files (I looked at this via a hex editor) like: driver_all.brres, etc.

    EDIT: That would mean it's like Brawl Format or something.... MDL0?

    It's a different revision of the model format used in SSBB. There's no ripper that supports it right now, so you'll have to rip them from dolphin. Or, if it's not a character exclusive to MK wii, just rip it from double dash with bmdviewer, it uses the same game models.

    Alright, looks like I'll have to do that...

    What about the textures and such? Bones? Would they attached on the ripped model if I ripped it from Dolphin? (I'm guessing yes, but not sure).
