KH2 & Re:CoM FMV Extractor

Postby Roxllen » Tue Dec 27, 2011 10:00 pm

A reposting of my post at KH-Vids.Net (http://www.kh-vids.net/showthread.php?1 ... -Extractor).

An extractor capable of ripping FMVs from the various versions of both Kingdom Hearts II [Final Mix] and Re:Chain of Memories.

It should be noted that all videos extractable by this application have a display aspect ratio of 8:5.

Download


Executables were last updated on 11/21/11, and have been tested on Linux Mint 12, CentOS 6, Ubuntu 10.10, Windows 7 and Windows XP.

How-to guide:
Spoiler :
When you start up kh2_recom_fmv you will see a menu and prompt similar to below. A folder titled fmv_dump will also be created in the current directory unless it already exists. Do not delete this folder while the application is running.

Code: Select all

  KH2 & Re:CoM FMV Extractor
----------------------------------

1: Rip PSS files from game disc to hard drive
2: Start PSS_demux to demux PSS files
3: Convert DAT files to playable WAVEs
4: Mux video and audio into MKVs
5: Exit application
Select option (1-5):


Input 1 into the prompt by typing 1 and pressing Enter; this starts the fist step, listing your computer's available disc drives.

Code: Select all

Select option (1-5): 1

 List of available disc drives:
 1: D:
 2: No medium
 3: Go back
 Select drive or input ISO image location:


In this example my computer has two disc drives so both are listed, my second disc drive is empty, so it comes up as No medium. D: is where my game disc is located so I will input 1, you may also input the file location of an ISO image, e.g. C:\kh2us.iso.

If a game disc is found the application would then start extracting the PSS (PlayStation Stream) files to the fmv_dump folder.

 KH2 NTSC-U/C disc detected!
  Now extracting: 100% complete!


After each step you will be returned to the main menu and prompt. Input 2 to start PSS_demux. Drag the PSS files in the fmv_dump folder into the new window that appears. Close PSS_demux when done. After this step is completed you will have a M2V file (video) and a DAT file (audio, not yet playable) for each PSS file demuxed.

Code: Select all
1: Rip PSS files from game disc to hard drive
2: Start PSS_demux to demux PSS files
3: Convert DAT files to playable WAVEs
4: Mux video and audio into MKVs
5: Exit application
Select option (1-5): 2


Input 3 to decode the resulting DAT files from the previous step into playable WAVEs. You will be asked which game the DAT files are from. My files are from Kingdom Hearts II so I will input 1. MPlayer is used to decode the DATs; you will see all of MPlayer's text output to the screen. This and the next step are optional if you have no need for audio. Decoding the audio is possible thanks to the help of sayde's tutorial (http://www.animemusicvideos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=80680).

Code: Select all
1: Rip PSS files from game disc to hard drive
2: Start PSS_demux to demux PSS files
3: Convert DAT files to playable WAVEs
4: Mux video and audio into MKVs
5: Exit application
Select option (1-5): 3

 1: Kingdom Hearts II
 2: Re:Chain of Memories
 3: Go back
 Decode audio from which game? 1


The optional final step will mux the video and playable audio together into MKVs. It compresses the WAVEs into lossless FLACs to save hard drive space. It also sets a title and correct display aspect ratio flag for each video. This step uses the programs FLAC and mkvmerge.

The hidden 0 option will let you input a command, allowing you to use any of the third-party programs included in the Windows EXE. If you do not have any of the proper codecs, splitters or video player installed on your system to playback the MKV files, you can use MPlayer.

Code: Select all
1: Rip PSS files from game disc to hard drive
2: Start PSS_demux to demux PSS files
3: Convert DAT files to playable WAVEs
4: Mux video and audio into MKVs
5: Exit application
Select option (1-5): 0
~ mplayer lop.mkv


Or play a video without having muxed the video and audio.

Code: Select all
~ mplayer lop.m2v -aspect 8:5 -audiofile lop.wav


Input 5 to exit kh2_recom_fmv. You may now delete files from the fmv_dump folder that you no longer need: PSS files if they have been demuxed, DAT files if they've been decoded, M2Vs, WAVEs and FLACs if you only have use for the MKVs.

I hope this application worked for you and I also wish you happy viewing/AMV making. :smile: You can report any problems you have here.

Looks like this rips the cutscenes without subs? That might be worth checking out in itself...I dont suppose there is a KH1 counterpart?

Mostly correct; the FMVs do not have hardsubbed subtitles, except for the ones in the original Japanese release of KH2. The hardsubbs were replaced in favor of softsubs in following releases.

There is, not by me, here: viewtopic.php?f=44&t=102574

GUI Version

Postby Roxllen » Sat May 12, 2012 4:29 am

I've created a GUI version of this tool. I've simply merged the original code with new GUI elements.

Image

Some things still need to be done like adding the optional muxing step, and currently the "Help" button doesn't do anything, but this will get you to the extracted files and decoded audio same as the original.

Very nice tool!

except i meant the cut scenes that cut in right between gameplay that are (apparently) impossible to rip without subs...
