does anyone have any hard info on this? exactly what format are the data files in, what programs can you use to extract them, and how do you get those programs?

people have made passing references to such things as "susie" "splitdat" and "mbunpack", but where do you get these and how do you make them work? does anyone here actually know anything more than "I've heard that you can..." ?

I have had them before my harddisk died.

Basically susie plugins allow you to open and extract stuff from the data0*.p files, and to view some of the images in ex3 format in them.

Mbunpack was more less similar to the susie plugins, except it only could unpack the files. Also it was a dos program. Doesn't work with Re-act.

Splitdat was for extracting character sprites from the charname.dat files. Dos as well. Doesn't work with Re-act.

I don't think there is any way to extract sprites from Re-ACT, at least not yet. The japanese people who made the orginal splitdat either didn't make a new one yet or they didn't publish it like the previous one.

Sounds and other stuff can be extracted with susie i think.

Ah, well, I hate to sound really stupid, but uhm... I got the Susie rar, and it was two files, and I don't really know what to do with them ^^;; It didn't do anything when I put them in my Melty Blood directory x.x Please help, and don't hit me too hard for being stupid .__.;;
