    I need to find out the file structure inside of an EBOOT.BIN file. Is there a way to either a)view the contents, or b)extract them? I'm trying to change a character's name, which is definitely in the EBOOT (I checked), but because I don't know how the files are nested, I cannot edit the file. This is because I don't only need to edit the filesize in the header of one file, but every file that the one I am editing is nested in. Any help?

    Edit: If this is in the wrong place, mods please move. Thanks.

    Edit2: I figured out the file structure. I had to take a hex editor and manually 'separate' the files from the EBOOT.bin file, then save them. That was a pain in the neck to do, though (not to mention time-consuming). For future reference (in case there IS an EBOOT.BIN/PRX extractor (NOT Decrypter, as the EBOOT.BIN in question is unencrypted, I checked), keep this thread open for now. Thanks.

    I didn't get it. The eboot is not an archive...
