Noelemahc is the master of that, I think.
xdisciplex should also know quite a bit as well.

First you need to have your PSP setup where you can dump your files off your UMD onto your PC (Some homebrew versions have it built in the menus to dump automatically when selected).  Then you open it with a program, such as UMDGen.  Then you can read the files in the UMD dump data, select what you want to explore (example assetsfb to change character skins, moves, etc) and extract it.  Open the extracted file, usually with Winrar to then extract individual files once again to either edit via notepad or to hex edit, all depends on what you're wanting to do with what files.

Hope that helps.

The animations are compatible with the PC version of MUA, but you need to rip them from the FB files first. The skins and other graphical stuff will crash the game.

Noelemahc is working on doing all those updates for the PSP.  He's the only one who knows how to do skins for the PSP, but PS2 models and textures (not animations) will work on the PSP with no modifications.

From what he's said it looks like he's going to do the next-gen mod for PSP.  Colossus, Moon Knight and bugfixes (like Deadpool's HUD)

one question: I used the UMD Gen and the WinRar but in the actors folder when I opened it it only appeared 2 skins that were of test..., so do you have to modify the packages/generated folder?

You have to build the FBs.  Check out the fbbuilder and Modding Rundown: FBs topics in this forum.  The Xbox, PSP and PS2 work differently than the PC.

and how do you put all the files as an ISO again?with the UMD Gen?
Title: Re: psp extraction
Post by: Teancum on July 04, 2008, 07:56am
Yes, the PSP mod comes with instructions inside the download.

Post by: becoming_myself on July 04, 2008, 10:31am
but when you have to save the files, how do you save it?as an ISO or as a CSO?
because I saved it as a CSO but when I transfer it to the PSP it appears that is damaged
Title: Re: psp extraction
Post by: Teancum on July 04, 2008, 11:25am
You need to use the original disc to create the CSO, not a torrented rip of the game.

wait a minute
when I modify all the files what do you have to do with the UMDGen? because in the mod puts: 7-Recompile the ISO to a CSO
I thought it was saving the files as a CSO
Title: Re: psp extraction
Post by: Teancum on July 04, 2008, 05:16pm
Save as ISO, then compress to CSO.

We don't know any of the formats for the PS3, plus you need a blu-ray disc burner and some way to play backups.  Blu-ray burners are like 150 bucks for a cheap one.  Even then though I don't know if you can play backups on a PS3.

Honestly it's not worth the effort until playing backups is a LOT easier on the PS3.
