      Der Developer c0d3m4st4 hat sein VPKTool in der Version 1.6 released!

      Mit diesem Windows Tool könnt ihr .vkp Files öffnen(entpacken) und dann diverse Veränderungen vornehmen, wie z.B. Dateien zu shrinken, die .vpk als safe zu markieren oder auch einen minimal-Installation .vpk erstellen.

      Download: https://mega.nz/#!HJg2iToD!Wdsl6hWN0bXSkQUF5uEdOJXXckvdmENBBSwxMMr-o5w

      On your Windows PC: Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 (if you use Windows XP, sorry, you are out of luck and you will need to upgrade or use other alternatives, as i'm not going to use 3rd party compression libraries).
      On your PSVita: VitaShell 0.95 or higher.


      Main panel (split options)
      Simply drag and drop your .vpk file. The application will generate 2 files and 1 directory:
      [TITLE_ID]_install.vpk file for minimal installation
      [TITLE_ID].txt with vpk info
      [TITLE_ID]_ftp directory (unzipped in case of x86)

      The original vpk file is ALWAYS preserved. If you want to delete it you will have to do it manually after checking everything is correct.

      You can also mark the eboot.bon in the newly created vpk file as safe.

      If you check the "ZIP FTP files for archiving" a file named [TITLE_ID]_ftp.zip will be created.

      You can also repack the chosen .vpk file (and mark as safe), with the chosen compression level. This might be useful for upcoming Vitamin release; you can choose a faster dumping speed with less compression and then repack on computer which should be faster.

      The compression level dropdown let you choose compression level for all compresion operations.

      You can delete the manual from the [TITLE_ID]_install.vpk file to save soem space on memory card. Manual is removed only from this file. Don't forget original .vpk file remains untouched.

      Settings panel
      Here you can set your PSVita FTP server details and paths for your PSVita and local games folder.

      You can also choose your preferred upload mode: auto or manual. In "auto" mode, all games found on the "Local splitted games folder" field will be listed, and you can install them with one click. In "manual" mode, you can select a vpk file to upload, or a game data folder to upload (game data folders MUST be named [TITLE_ID]_ftp exacly as the one created after you split the vpk with this tool).

      For "auto" mode all 2 files and 1 folder created by the splitting tool MUST be present, that is [TITLE_ID]_install.vpk and [TITLE_ID].txt files, and [TITLE_ID]_ftp directory.

      The "Delay" field is mainly for listing the installed games on your PSVita, if you get any error, try increasing it a bit. It should not affect upload operations, but if your WiFi is too slow and get any upload errors, you can increase this a bit too.

      "Game rip data folder" field let's you browse for a folder to save your rip files to.

      FTP options panel
      Manual upload mode - Click "Upload vpk file" button to choose the vpk file to upload to your PSVita. It will autoinstall after upload (you must be using VitaShell 0.95 or higher).
      Then click the "Upload game data folder" to choose the [TITLE_ID]_ftp directory. It MUST be named like that, exactly as it is created after using the splitting options.

      Auto upload mode - Just choose the game to upload from the drop down list and click "Install". It will upload and install everything automatically.

      Apply RIP data - Let you choose to rip the game on upload with the rip data file found on the folder containing the rip data files, or not to rip the game. Original files in the game data folder ([TTLE_ID]_ftp) remains untouched. Everything is done on the fly.

      Game ripping panel
      You can select the [TITLE_ID]_ftp (game data folder) you want to remove/replace files.

      In the first treeview (0 byte dummy) you can select the files you want replaced with a 0 byte dummy file (usually useful for other languages stuff).

      In the second treeview (files to replace with another file) you can select the files you want replaced with a file from the same game you will select in the field below (Replace with). Useful for games that crash when you replace something with a 0 byte dummy (like the videos in Sonic All Stars RAcing... in this case you can replace all movies with the logos movie, which is the smaller one).

      The there are a couple check boxes only visible if the game contains mp4 or at9 files. If you check them, all the files of that type will be replaced with a 1 second dummy mp4/at9 file. And i mean ALL mp4/at9 files will be replaced.

      All games tested for now works fine with above operations (of course you need to use your brain to decide what to replace.. if you replace critical game files with a dummy, game will crash for sure).

      You can also save and load the rip data files, and share them so other can apply them. No illegal stuff here, just files with a list of operations to do, so safe to share.

      Hab gestern von einem Döner geträumt.... und heute einen gegessen! Lebe deine Träume :ll:

    • v1.7 (beta)


      With the recent malicious dump out there (PCSE00229 - Fruit Ninja - not a real "Mai" dump), this is a quick release so you can at least get dumper application info and decide what to do. Sorry if anything crashes, i was in the middle of adding new stuff and cleaning up the code a bit. Please report any bug at twitter @c0d3m4st4
      - Mark as safe option is not optional anymore. Everytime you split or repack a VPK file, it will be marked as safe.
      - Added online update. You should get the option to update the application every time a new version is released.
      - Added a new option to create VPK files (you can either create a new VP from a folder, given it has the necessary files, or merge a folder and another VPK file (useful o recreate a previously splitted VPK).
      - Removed the option to zip up the [TITLE_ID]_ftp folder, since i don't touch the original VPK file, that's the one you should preserve.
      - Added options to define your renaming pattern in the settings panel. That way you can choose what to show and what to hide in your renamed VPK files.
      - Fixed a bug happening when renaming files with TITLE attribute in param.sfo containing a carriage return char
      - Added dumping tool info
      - Now showing a warning on start up if the paths defined in the settings panel are not found.
      - A couple bugs fixed (nothing serious, just forgot to disable some checkboxes on main screen.. not affecting functionality at all).

      v1.7.3 (beta)
      MaiDumpTool v233.2z10 support
      v1.7.2 (beta)
      Added extra info for unknown VPKs (could be homebrew, early Mai dumps, dev leaks… USE THESE ONES AT YOUR OWN RISK!). For homebrew, just get it from trusted sources!
      v1.7.1 (beta)
      I said it was a very beta release Fixed a stupid bug when splitting and renaming at the same time.
      All files renamed had a BEWARE msg in the dumper information. Hope you didn’t delete them! ?? My fault, it was a rushed release last night!

    • VPKTool v1.8

      Time to remove the beta label. All reported bugs have been fixed now. If i missed any, keep reporting, as i can't test everything, and people uses weird stuff i may have not treated apropiatelly in
      the code.
      Code clean up... this is growing fast!
      Added prelimnary MaiDumpTool support. For now, only safety checks. Click to open may folder or drag it in the logo. Only Mai root folders, no parents no weird structures, only the [TITLE_ID] fodler.
      It doesn't actually need to be named [TITLE_ID].
      For Mai mode, use the checkbox under the logo. VPKTool will remember that setting and start in the last mode you used. Default first run mode, is Vitamin VPK dumps. Check the "Mai mode" checkbox for
      MaiDumpTool dumps mode.
      Mai dumps are confussing. Need to check it in depth before continue. I've seen them with and without eboot_origin.bin, with or without mai_mode folder... such a mess. Dunno if created by the dumper, or
      modded by people, so will check myself
      Folders are important! Don't use odd folders like your desktop folder, root folders or any important folder for the VPKTool temporary folder. It will be wiped after certains operations!!!
      Added a small hash calculator in the help/info panel. Proably not useful for most of you, but i needed one handy. Just drag and drop a file in the text field and you will get some hashes and some file info.

    • Changelogs:

      • Bug fixed on safety checks for manually created VPKs from Mai dumps. Most of these manually created VPKs are not correctly done, and you may get weird errors. I think i fixed them all now... just forgot to add the checks on my safety checking function. There have been no risks derivated from this bug, as VPKTool just showed an error inspecting the file.
      • Added safety checks in manual upload mode.
      • New option added for MaiDumpTool folders: create a ZIP file from a Mai folder.
      • WARNING message when selecting a TEMP folder. I wonder why people keeps using odd folders like the desktop as temp!
      • MaiDumTool 233.2zEx identified as MaiDumpTool v233.2z10(Ex) (they use the same module)

      • Mai basic safety checks added
      • Mai ZIP folder option added
      • New mandatory folder strucure for Mai dumps:
      ---- Parent folder (can be any name)
      |------- [TITLE_ID] subfolder for main game
      |------- [TITLE_ID]_patch subfolder for game updates (optional)
      |------- [TITLE_ID]_addc subfolder for game DLC (optional)
      These will be used in the future for FTP upload.
      • More checks added to avoid errors on manually created VPKs and Mai folders with odd names and structure. To those converting... Please don't delete the mai folder when converting a Mai dump to VPK... Why doing it?
      • Didn't have much time this week, so no new security checks have been added apart from the basic ones, so be careful cause new ways to brick your console are now out there. Remember to install homebrew ONLY from trusted sources. And use VitaShell 1.3x or higher to install those.
