Best and simplest solution: contact the author of OpenIV.

OpenIV only supports the PC version, while RPFTool only supports Xbox 360 and PC.
There's no tool for PS3 RPF files, unfortunately.

Do you know why the PS3 files are not supported?
Keys, endianess, different format?
Just curious but I guess the reason is probably related to the keys.

My questions were directed to barti or any other with more information about the tools and the format.

The creators of OpenIV have stated why they don't want to support consoles, something related to difficulty of modding and problems with retrieving the encryption key:
http://openiv.com/?p=667#more-667

While the creator of RPFTool didn't really specify a reason for it (except that he doesn't have time to work on the program now):
http://tmacdev.com/faq/

All I can help with this is that both PS3 and PC versions use RPF4. I don't have access to files from the Xbox version. File structure looks very similar, so I assume that keys are related to the problem.
Another possible reason why people don't bother with the PS3 versions is because Sony tends to use proprietary formats, compression and encryption as part of the EDGE SDK, so files from the 360 version are just easier to extract.

Well interesting part with OpeniV is that they actually support console version of GTA V :) I like it but it is kind of strange..

Hello nice people from ZenHax.

Come here to request help with Max Payne 3 for the PS3.
So, I were searching for a tool to open some .RPF files from the game, but can't find one that does this for the PS3 version.
No, OpenIV does not supports the console version. And yes, I have requested help in their forums.

The far I got was this thread in Xentax were a friendly dude was helping a person. I did contacted him, but my knowdledge with Hex editors and basic coding is null :(
He has a tool repository in GitHUB which I am trying to build, but as I wrote this, MS Visual Studio download has not finish. If someone knows a faster way to build his tool, please share it!

Also, I am not sure if his tool will allow to inject custom files within the game PS3 RPF files, which is my first intention. Hopes for the best :D

So, my action log looks like this:
1. Find a tool that will open/modify/inject custom files into Max Payne 3 .RPF files for the PS3. [IN PROGRESS]
2. Decrypt "common.sdat". [DONE] I did use TrueAncestor Edat Rebuilder v1.65. I have my PS3 IDPS, my act.dat and the game .rap file so it was a piece of cake.
3. Obtain the RPF file key in order to decrypt it. According to this post, as per my understanding, what I need to do is:
A. Decrypt the game original EBOOT.BIN file in order to obtain the .ELF. [DONE] I did use TrueAncestor_SELF_Resigner_v1.98. Plus, I have my PS3 IDPS, my act.dat and the game .rap file. Piece of cake.
B. Once we have the .ELF file, use IDA Hex Rays to locate the key at 0x014C6CA4. [WHAT?] I do totally need help on this step. I did open the .ELF file with that program, but it starts asking me details in order to open the file, like which kind of file it is, PowerPC, 64, 32 or 16 bits, and then to mark the entry point (?). Don't know how to get that key :(

OPTIONAL:
If I manage to build twisted RPFTool, then I need:
1. To get the RPF decrypt key for the PS3.
2. Place it inside Keys.ini in the RPFTOOL folder.
3. Hope for the best that this toold will allow me to modify the .rpf files and not just see their content.

So, that's it.
I could really appreciate on this!

Hello.

I still struggling to build the RPF tool by twisted. It seems that I have to use the very same version of Visual Studio were the code was written on.

Regarding the key to work with the RPF4 files from Max Payne in the PS3, I have already:
1. Decrypted common.dat, which is common.rpf now, and starts like this:
Code:
52 50 46 34 00 50 06 00 4F 2A 00 00 00 00 00 00 FE FF FF FF 00 00 00 00

The four first bytes, seems to mean RPF4, according to the HEX editor.

2. Decrypted EBOOT.BIN, so now I have EBOOT.ELF. According to twisted in this post in Xentax, the key is located at 0x014C6CA4, but that address should be from another file, as that one in EBOOT.ELF takes me to here:
Image

So, I was thinking to write a script for QuickBMS, but if I manage to compile the RPF tool then I won't need to. Regardless, I am not sure if that tool will allow me to modify the RPF files :(

Can someone please tell me where to look for the key?

So, I managed to build the tool and find the key (with help, obviously) and now I am a happy modder of Max Payne for the PS3.

However, I now find that the game levels are written with script files, wrapped inside some .SCO files (which are inside a .rpf file as well).
There is a discord channel where some user posted the already decompiled scripts, however, no one there provided a tool to open/mod the .SCO files in case you want to mod those.

I find this tool named SCO Tool Box, that works with GTA IV and its expansion for the PC version. From the SCO Tool Box source code, the keys are located here:
Code:
                RegistryKey key;
                if ((key = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey(Key32)) != null ||
                    (key = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey(Key64)) != null)
                {
                    dir = key.GetValue(ValueName).ToString();
                    exe = "GTAIV.exe";
                }

                if ((key = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey(Key32E)) != null ||
                    (key = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey(Key64E)) != null)
                {
                    dir = key.GetValue(ValueName).ToString();
                    exe = "EFLC.exe";
                }
            }

            return FindKey(dir, exe);

            } catch { return null; }
        }

        private static byte[] FindKey(string gtaPath, string gtaExe)
        {
            gtaExe = Path.Combine(gtaPath, gtaExe);

            try {
                uint[] searchOffsets = {
                                       //EFIGS EXEs
                                       0xA94204 /* 1.0 */,
                                       0xB607C4 /* 1.0.1 */,
                                       0xB56BC4 /* 1.0.2 */,

                                       0xB7AEF4 /* 1.0.4 */,
                                        0xBE1370 /* 1.0.4r2 */,
                                        0xBE6540 /* 1.0.6 */,

                                       0xB7AEFC /* 1.0.3.1 */,
                                       //Japan EXEs
                                        0xB8813C /* 1.0.1.2 */,
                                        0xB8C38C /* 1.0.2.2 */,
                                     0xBE6510 /* 1.0.5.2 */,

                                       0xBEF028 /* 1.1.2 */,
                                       0xC705E0 /* 1.1.1 */,
                                       0xC6DEEC /* 1.1.0 */,
                                   };
                const string validHash = "DEA375EF1E6EF2223A1221C2C575C47BF17EFA5E";
                byte[] key = null;

                var fs = new FileStream(gtaExe, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read);

                foreach (var u in searchOffsets)
                {
                    if (u <= fs.Length - 32)
                    {
                        var tempKey = new byte[32];
                        fs.Seek(u, SeekOrigin.Begin);
                        fs.Read(tempKey, 0, 32);

                        var hash = BitConverter.ToString(SHA1.Create().ComputeHash(tempKey)).Replace("-", "");
                        if (hash == validHash)
                        {
                            key = tempKey;
                            break;
                        }
                    }
                }


So, I am working Max Payne 3 for the PS3, again how can I locate the key for the .SCO files!? Thanks in advance.
