    Exclamation ULTIMATE TOOLZ: Extract PSARC - Convert BIK - Play XVAG (WINDOWS)

    WASSUP GUYS? :((

    I made this thread for ultimate tools to get files from ps3 games.
    The extensions we will use here are: XVAG, BIK, and PSARC.
    - BIK and one of the most extension used for VIDEOS in PS3 games.
    - XVAG is an extension for AUDIO(in other words: music) in many games.
    - PSARC is also used in almost all Sony Computer Entertainment games, it's like a ZIP that contains many files.

    NOTE: I don't take responsibility for any damage, although this is kinda harmless if you make backups for everything you use. I made these screenshots and this tutorial, but DIDN'T make any of these programs.

    Download that contains all requirements(compatible with xp and above): http://www.megaupload.com/?d=57G7PJZ8
    UPDATE (1/30/2012): Megaupload shut down, so uploaded to mediafire: http://www.mediafire.com/?24254kdo8jg3p0e

    1- Extracting PSARC:

    1- Extract the download to the desktop, it contains 1 file and 2 folders. Enter the PSARC folder, don't open PSARC.exe.
    2- Get any PSARC from any game(using ftp or file manager...) and put it in the PSARC folder.
    3- Drag the psarc file TO psarc.exe, and wait till it's extracted!
    For an example, i took music.psarc from Uncharted 2, and it has the best music ever!



    4- A new folder should be created. In that folder you have all extracted files from the psarc. If it is a music psarc, you might have XVAG files. I'll explain how to play them below.

    2- Playing/Converting XVAG:

    1- In the extracted folder, you have a Foobar2000 folder. Open it and install foobar2000.
    2- After installing, don't open it. You see the plugins folder? You have to copy all the files IN it to the directory of foobar2000 in the components folder.



    3- Now open FooBar2000.
    4- Go to File>Add File and add the XVAG files that you want. They are not always in a PSARC. You can find them in the USRDIR folder of any game.
    5- Click on play and listen!
    6- To convert your favorite XVAG files, right-click on the file(in foobar2000) and click on Convert and it will be converted to WAV.

    3- Playing/Converting BIK:

    As a start, I can say that not all bik files can have audio when played. But still it's nice to watch them!
    1- In the extracted folder, install RADtools.
    2- Open RADtools.
    3- Find your bik file and double click to play. For an example, I took the intro of inFamous.




    4- To convert your files to AVI to watch using any video play, choose the bik and click on Convert a file.




    5- To make YOUR OWN BIK, it's very simple, but it doesn't always work.
    Click (in RADtools) on the video you want to convert, and click on Bink it!



    6- Once it's created, replace it with the one in the game folder.

    Thanks for reading and +rep!
