Aluigi is there any way to decompress this ? Or is it only possible from the save state ?

quickbms script to decompress files.
Needs to add support for extracting sub archives (align data to 0x800 after last file and start over again)
Run this first for now.

Code:
getdstring DIV 4goto 0forfindloc OFFSET string DIVprint "%OFFSET%"getdstring TMP 0x20findloc SIZE string DIVgoto SIZEmath SIZE - OFFSETlog "" OFFSET SIZEnext

then you can do this

Code:
comtype LZSS0savepos BASEfindloc FILES string "\x00\x00\x00\x00"math FILES / 4print "%FILES%"for i = 0 < FILESget OFFSET longmath OFFSET - 0x1D00000putarray 0 i OFFSETnext imath FILES - 1for i = 0 < FILESset j imath j + 1getarray OFFSET 0 igetarray SIZE 0 jmath SIZE - OFFSETif SIZE > 0math OFFSET + BASElog MEMORY_FILE OFFSET SIZEget TSIZE long MEMORY_FILEget SIZE asize MEMORY_FILEprint "%TSIZE%"if TSIZE > 0x1FFFFF || TSIZE < 0log "" 0 SIZE MEMORY_FILEelsemath SIZE - 4clog "" 4 SIZE TSIZE MEMORY_FILEendifendifnext i

looks like the 3d models use ps2 vif tags.

After several hours no luck. I didnt get nothing from the .bin files. So i deleted the 1st byte of 00 in each .bin then it started extracting. I then tried to use the run command you mentioned but kept getting this error. I still dont know if this is correct. I've reached out to several people for help with no luck. They all say the script is bad. Which clearly its not. Can you please tell me or explain a little better on how to run both files. I see it says .txt in your command. Is that the script you wrote. I called it script.bms in my image. Im just a little lost on the process I think.

Then I did something here and now the files look right. I remember .213 is anim. Did the tool work here ?

Then I decided to just dump all the bins and run a bat on the files and got this.

After awhile I think might of got it still not sure.

I ran then 1st script on the .iso and got 44,102 files. Then I try to run the 2nd script on the folder of .dat's and get this error.

It created folders 0-299. With nothing in them.

Sorry for the confusion but I'm not really sure what to do or if this is correct. I posted another picture of my run commands.
Still haven't been able to get it working.

I now put all the files to the iso into a folder called _ISO and ran the scirpt on that folder. Getting .dats now so hopefully this is correct.

Dont think it is though since im at 100K files.

Well I extracted contents I think. Still not sure if this is correct. Here are my STGMAP folder and my BTLMEP folder along with my extracted folders.

I run the 2nd script on the folder and get the same error still. Sorry chrrox. I dont see what I'm doing wrong or the instructions aren't clear to me.

What are the output files suppose to be ?

Same error

When i run the script on the folder i dont get a BTLODT.BIN folder. I have to manually remove the 1st set of 00 in the file then it reads. But then 2nd script still fails.

17 hours later. I again asking for help here. The first script is #1 second is #2.
I ran #1 script on the files. I do get folders. 2. But they are BTLODT.

These are the only 2 folders I get. Now If I erase the 1st bye of 00 in the other .BIN files.
I do get .dat files. But script #2 fails to convert the .dats. As seen in previous pictures.
The only thing I get from the #1 script from the BTL folder is 2 folders.

This is whats inside. Just .mwo files. No dats. In both folders.
But if i run the script on the files I removed the 1 byte of 00 from i see .dat .213's.
Which i know 213 to be .anim's. So I looks like it is cutting something right. I just dont know why this is so confusing.
You mentioned align to 0x800 at the end of the files. What files ?
And how come when I remove the 1 byte of 00's at the beginning of the archives that don't work on script #1 they suddenly work ?
Can you please just lay out the instructions so a "dummy" like myself can understand them. Apparently I'm missing something here.
Thank you for your time and effort. I really a appreciate you helping me but as of now this hasn't really helped me since I dont understand the process.
Ive reached out to 3 others for help and they all say they dont understand whats going on.

run this on all the files the iso extracted and extract them into their own folders.
Code:
getdstring DIV 4goto 0forfindloc OFFSET string DIVprint "%OFFSET%"getdstring TMP 0x20findloc SIZE string DIVgoto SIZEmath SIZE - OFFSETlog "" OFFSET SIZEnext

Then try just running this on one of the extracted files.

Code:
comtype LZSS0savepos BASEfindloc FILES string "\x00\x00\x00\x00"math FILES / 4print "%FILES%"for i = 0 < FILESget OFFSET longmath OFFSET - 0x1D00000putarray 0 i OFFSETnext imath FILES - 1for i = 0 < FILESset j imath j + 1getarray OFFSET 0 igetarray SIZE 0 jmath SIZE - OFFSETif SIZE > 0math OFFSET + BASElog MEMORY_FILE OFFSET SIZEget TSIZE long MEMORY_FILEget SIZE asize MEMORY_FILEprint "%TSIZE%"if TSIZE > 0x1FFFFF || TSIZE < 0log "" 0 SIZE MEMORY_FILEelsemath SIZE - 4clog "" 4 SIZE TSIZE MEMORY_FILEendifendifnext i

I have many times. All I get is 2 folders BTLMEP and BTLOVL both consists of .mwo files. Thats all script #1 exports for me. I uploaded my BMS log so you can see for yourself in export.txt. There is no BTLODT folder. I even scanned just the BTL folder in export2.txt.

I got it all working and everything is pretty much loose now. Can you please tell me how to go about reversing the animations/bones. I watched this video on Lzss0 about the shifting bytes and how the data is stored. But how would I go about in extracting these values ? Do you know of a way to do it ? Im willing to pay money for a tool if possible. I really would like to put this title to rest.
I see .ANM in the files and bne1 which i think are bones. And fam files which I think are "frames". Still not sure. If you could assist in this i would be very grateful. Im going crazy here trying to solve this. Please if you know of anything that would help.
