Hello! I am very new to this process of extracting files from archive files. I am curious as to whether or not anyone can give me a hand trying to optimize a script I have so I can better extract files from an Archive. Basically what I have is a script from a long time ago, made by someone else, to extract and convert files from an archive from a rather old game. It currently extracts the files into a .3ds max format. I don't mind this, but what happens is the models sometimes come out a little messed up. Some of the vertices are way offset and the models are sometimes contorted. I was hoping to find a way to better extract the files without messing with the models themselves.

The Archive file I am trying to extract the content from is here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1vvV8b ... cYuDey0u2m

The Script works pretty good, but I spend a LOT of time cleaning up the assets because their vertices (Vertex) are misplaced and offset in a lot of the models. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Even point me in the right direction to learn how to make scripts myself and read hex data?

That script was made by AlbinoLeopard of ps23format.
3d models is not my field and the script is very long and complex so I can't help.

Try also asking in the 2d/3d section, maybe there the users better understand what you want to do.
