Ripping Tutorials


PackCPK and SFPac can be used to extract .cpk and .pac files.


Modelfbx has been created for this purpose. The rigs can be obtained with this as well, or yet another Skyth-made tool, found at the first post of this Sonic Retro thread.


The sound banks can be found in \wars_0.cpk\sound. They can be opened in foobar2000 provided you have the vgmstream plugin.
