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
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
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!
