Anyone know anything about RPK files?

Unread postby GBAura » Sat Sep 28, 2013 8:46 am

I was digging around in the Spore Hero ROM with WiiScrubber and the parts in the creature editor are in RPK format. There isn't a lot of report on this but from what I gathered, this the format EA uses when it came to the games their developers make. Another thing I found is that these are Radlight Skin files, but I can't be sure because I believe these are model files. The reason why I'm asking you guys about this is because I want to use them for a mod that I'm working on, and my research on how to pull that off is fruitless because modders converted other files like .pac or .arc.

Do you guys have any idea about this?

I have no clue. You've taken the iso off your wii disk and extracted it, correct? I did that too, hoping for the chance to find the spor o mega. I don't know what the files could be opened or extracted in, or how to access their content, but did you try 7zip to unpack them? It works flawlessly with some file types I've found.
Spore is creative, even the mods and hacks.
Or, should I say, especially the mods and hacks?

I tried using 7-Zip like you said but it did nothing since it's not an archive file, but then again (and I should of mentioned this earlier) I can open the RPK files with HxD. That's what some modders do for extracting models and textures from WWE'12, I assumed it would do the same and I was half right. It's just I don't know where to start, I mean, the programs to mod are there but since this format is never looked into before I don't know where to begin. That's why I'm asking if anyone knows about this.

No idea, but my mod http://www.davoonline.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=118&t=5011&p=18603#p18603 has a replica Spor-O-Mega, if that can satisfy your cravings for now!

I can PM a PAL Spore Hero ISO to anyone who could use it for this purpose!
