Ok, I’m not sure if it was here or someplace else but someone put up a list of programs used for extracting video game models, I can’t remember where the list is or who posted it but I think it was here. But what I’m looking for is a list of programs used for extracting models from games.
3DRipperDX (doesnt always work! also graphics has to be on max)
sometimes you can extract archives with winRAR or tools provided by modding community for that particular game (Gamebyro engine for example and its BSA)
If you’re working off of Telltale games or Psychonauts, some guy wrote programs designed to extract files here:
Found it and added the list to my site.
