Greetings, fellow dollfags. Here's how to extract the graphics stuff from "Rozen Maiden Wechseln Sie Welt ab" visual novel.

0) Download and install Python 2.7 - you'll need it for some magic to happen.

1) Get yourself a game (how you do that is not really my concern, you're better off just buying it, but what do I know). You need game's files to be extracted on your PC, of course.

2) From game files' main directory, go to PS3_GAME/USRDIR/DATA folder. Here you'll find Graph.dat file. Save this python script there: https://tinyurl.com/desubokudawa (you may also just copy Graph.dat file to some new empty folder, as the script will extract all stuff in the same directory, so it'll get a bit messy).

3) Run python script, it may take a while. Make sure it prints "Done extracting!" at the end - if it doesn't, come here and complain to me.

4) Now you've got a bunch of files with .gtf extension. These are some kind of texture packages or something like that. To get images, you need to convert those files to DDS format. There is a tool just for that, and it's called gtf2dds (but it seems it's Windows only). Personally I've got it from there: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/sfxt_mods/endian-tools-vfx-eff-packer-and-unpacker-and-gtf-t-t883.html (Google suggests other versions are available from other sources).

5) After converting GTF files to DDS files, you're basically done. A few popular graphic apps support this format (but some need a plugin). If you want the images in more mainstream form (like PNG files), there are also some tools for that (DDS Converter for example, but it's kinda shitty).

6) ???

And bam, used irfanview and the image format extension to batch convert everything to png, kept the png's and dds's, the dds's work in paint.net, seems like some other programs have a hard time reading them. That should let us rebuild the sprites with the faces.

Awesome work!

I'm slowly working on piecing the sprites back together
