  1. I have been summoned! Yes, @theSLAYER is correct; the zip file was saved on my Google Drive, which since 2016 I have understandably reorganized and cleaned up, and the zip was not a file that survived. However, Ohana3DS Transfigured is still on my Github page, and from time to time I continue to update it. XObj, on the other hand, has been obsoleted by added features to Ohana and is no longer needed. Frankly, I might head over there once I'm done with this post and close that repository.
  2. The .pb, .pf, and .pk files are animations. Specifically, material and visibility. Material animations change a character's textures (for purposes such as blinking), and visibility animations make parts of the character invisible (like when Bulbasaur retracts its feelers). There should also be skeletal animations, which are the ones that make the character move, but I can't seem to find them.
  3. I've taken several looks around, but I just can't seem to figure out why the GARC Unpacker doesn't like your computer...if you'd like, I can send you a link to the finished models on my Google Drive (provided it's allowed by the moderators).
  4. Aaaaaand I think I'm done for the night. I'll get back to you tomorrow.
  5. Started to write a theory. Then it hit me. Download the ZIP file again. I've reuploaded it with a single minor tweak. Instead of renaming the GARC files to a different extension, it is now moving them to the same location with those extensions. This should fix it. EDIT: Also, I HIGHLY recommend you re-extract your ROM and start with a fresh XModels.
  6. A-ha! Redownload the ZIP file. You're using an older version that I reuploaded because it had some problems. Use the copy of Ohana3DS included in the ZIP file. It's been modified for this tutorial.
  7. Hmm... Can you attach a picture of your directory and a few folders in XModels? I've done this myself, but like I said, some ROMs might be different than others. EDIT: Also, if you're dragging and dropping, Ohana3DS isn't supposed to show anything in the window. It converts the files to other formats. If you go to the File->Open menu, THEN it should show something.
  8. It should be a link to the picture? Have the GARC files already been extracted...? I'm using a ROM where the files are all still compressed, but it seems some ROMs leave them unpackaged. I will modify my tutorial to account for uncompressed ROMs. In the meantime, you should skip this step and check the files in the directory I've instructed. If they're all .bch files, and there are no files with any other extension, go to step 8. If there ARE other files, go to step 4.
  9. Certainly. My apologies for the issue. [ATTACH=CONFIG]12889[/ATTACH] Make sure the romfs folder is NOT in the same directory as XModels.
  10. I've noticed there seems to be issues with extracting readable data from a Pokémon X/Y ROM. There are plenty of tools, like Ohana3DS and GARCTool, but they don't go together very well, and they don't support some file types. Therefore, I've posted a consolidated tutorial here for those of us who crave complete control over their data! All the files you need are in a ZIP file attached to this thread, save for the ROM because posting a 2 GB file would be a big no-no. You'll find a program labeled XObj (https://github.com/Quibilia/XObj) in the ZIP file. I wrote this program myself to examine the formats of the X/Y files and rename them accordingly. The copy of Ohana3DS Rebirth included in this ZIP file is a modified version designed to read the animations and textures in the ROM, which are containers of BCH files. I call it: Ohana3DS Transfigured! (https://github.com/Quibilia/Ohana3DS-Transfigured) The steps are as follows: 1. Run 3DS To CIA Converter.bat. Select option 5, then option 5 again. Type in the path to your ROM, and let it run. When the batch file tells you it's time to modify the files, close it. 2. Locate the subdirectory "romfs" where the batch file is stored. Enter it, and go into the subfolder "a". Copy (not move, COPY) everything in this folder to another folder labeled "XModels". The folder can be anywhere you want, as long as it's easy to get to. 3. Copy XObj.exe, GARC UnPacker.exe, and their accompanying batch files to the parent folder of XModels (if XModels is on your desktop, then your desktop), and run GARC.bat. This'll take a few minutes, so grab a soda. 4. When it's done, run XObj.exe, and it will look for any files that are compressed, and rename them to ".lz" files. Go into XModels, and enter the subdirectory "0/0/7.garc_". If there are no .lz files here, skip the next two steps. 5. Open Ohana3DS Rebirth.exe, and drag all of the .lz files into the window. They should be all grouped together in Windows Explorer (thanks, alphabetical order). It'll whir for a minute, and more likely than not stop responding, but let it run and it'll spit out some decompressed files. Go back into the parent folder of XModels, and run ClearCompressed.bat. This will delete all the compressed files, and leave the decompressed ones. Close Ohana3DS. 6. Run XObj again, and it'll convert each file in XModels to a format readable by our modified Ohana3DS. There are a lot of directories in XModels, but for this tutorial, we'll just be focusing on the files in 0/0/7.garc_, which hold the data for our favorite characters themselves. 7. Run ClearOriginals.bat, and it'll delete the original files, but leave the ones that we converted with XObj. 8. If you're looking for all of the models at once, here's where the real fun starts. Open Ohana3DS again, and go back into 0/0/7.garc_. Highlight all 8000-something files here, and drag them into the Ohana3DS window. The program will stop responding. After about five minutes, it should start responding again; when it does, the parent folder of XModels should be filled with .obj and .png files. Congratulations! You've successfully extracted all of the models and textures from your X/Y ROM. I'm still working out a conversion algorithm for the animations, but they should be convertible with Ohana3DS if you need them (just not with drag-drop support like the models and textures). 9. If you're looking for one or two models, I've outfitted Ohana3DS for that as well. Before dragging those 8000 files into the window, just go to the Open menu, and select a .PC file; this is a 3D model. From there, you can import textures in .PT format, or animations in .PB, .PK, or .PF formats. As for me, there are some questions I have about the animation files. It seems that all three formats contain more than one kind of animation, and they can be read pretty much the same way, so...what's the point in having more than one format? Also, if anyone could tell me where the skeletal animations are stored, I'd appreciate it. The material and visibility animations are stored along with the models, but the skeletal...they're hiding from me.
