    I recently purchased Fatal Frame 5 from the eshop and would like to extract the files (not sure how better to explain that).

    I've tried both TCP Geko and Dumpiine.

    TCP Geko gives me: lfm_order.bin, archive00.ink and a few more resource files but no rpx files.

    Dumpiine gives me a single rpx file.

    Is there a way of extracting all the files from purchased eshop games? My end goal is to put back the things that were taken out when it was localized here.

    If not then does anyone know how the wii u stores eshop games, the format of thoes games,etc.

    Thank you.

    Edit - Sorry the title should have been Possible to fully extract Eshop Wii U games.

    Sorry i don't have any helpful information for you, but I do want to say I support you in your efforts. It would be great if you can pull it off. The localization censoring is insulting for us. I know someone has had decent success in using japanese files to modify Xenoblade.

    Firmware Version Required:
    3.1.0, 4.1.0, 5.0.0, 5.3.2
    1. Get the Official Kernel Exploit to run.
    2. Get the TCP Gecko Client to connect.
    3. Get to a static menu in the game:
    VC Games: Press right trigger to show the VC menu
    MK8: Press - at the main menu to get to the Play Stats menu
    SSB: Press A on Controls to get to the Controls menu
    Hyrule Warriors: Go to the Character Select screen
    4. Click the FSA tab
    5. Click Read FSA
    Note: Wait about 2-10 minutes for the file system to appear (will show Not Responding until then). This will vary greatly depending on your CPU specs. Be patient.
    6. Right-click to extract files or folders


    You will need the rpx file you dumped using dumpiine if u ever wanted to launch the game using Loadiine

    Thats what I did. After clicking read FSA, I get 2 files (what I assume are resource files) and no rpx files. Is TCP Gecko Client able to dump RPX/RPL files?

    Was just thinking the same thing. Someone needs to dump the ROMs of Super Luigi Bros. (NES Remix 2) and Luigi Bros. (Super Mario 3D World)

    Do you want the file system or RPX/RPL files?

    Both. I'd like to extract all the files in one go.

    From what I understood of TCP Gecko Client, was that it showed all the files of the running game and allowed you to extract everything.

    Is my understanding of TCP Gecko Client wrong?
