Game Settings[edit | edit source]

Most PS3 games (probably all) uses one or more settings files that can contain several infos, like the list of .psarc's that will be loaded at boot time, generic settings like gamma level or brighness, or debug settings like gravity, godmode, fps display, etc, etc, etc...

This settings files can be embedded inside other file or separated files (in this case usually protected as an .edat) and are dependant of the Game Engine, in other words... all the games compiled with the same engine uses the same settings files

Gran Turismo 5/6[edit | edit source]

  • Info: unpack the GT.VOL file
  • Usage: gttool <volume file> <GT5/GT6> <output directory>

GT TOOL source code:


Half year ago I've created a tool to unpack encrypted and compressed archives from both versions of Gran Turismo (5, 6) and yesterday some guys asked me for its source code. So I've decided to release it. However a part of the source code requires some refactoring:!OwBXnZ5R!nG8dq3ixN ... 9_rg0l7FrQ

PD use custom file formats, cryptographic algorithms, deflate compression, sqlite database, custom script language called AdHoc (all scripts are already compiled here). If I recall correctly textures use DXT compression and soundtracks are stored in a custom container in the ATRAC3 format, movies are in the PAM format but they are encrypted, I've found a single key for an intro movie, other keys are stored in scripts. Also I've reversed their cache system with such weird naming system (K/H/A3 and so on), you can find all needed functions for them too.

Unfortunately I have no free time to continue this so I hope someone will be more lucky with it. Enjoy!

Could somebody please update tool for hdd cache and specdb decryption?
My tool can handle both things: HDD cache and specdb (and more). You just need to look carefully into original forum thread, I've released them too.

Hi, Flatz, yeah I read the thread but "refactoring" and "compiling" are alien to me :(

Nice work on the vol extraction though, hopefully somebody will put together a release with all the options for GT6.

Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists Of Plastic[edit | edit source]

Incredibly Modifiable since the game's .xml files aren't encrypted... .dds texture swap work... i've already found extra hidden game modes (TAG, Assassin, Defend The Shrine, Onslaught & Treasure etc) ... including at least one that works... TAG MODE... so i made a menu option to start it for PlayerVsPlayer (no AI in TAG for now) works great until you try to load main menu after a match... also i was able to improve the AI, Jump distance / run speed etc... i even made Dodgeball mode low gravity ... there is also EngineConfig_PS3.ini which seems to have not only debug mode to skip main menu etc... but also dedicated server settings... private server would be fun...

Diabo III[edit | edit source]

Eboot Mods[edit | edit source]

Modding Eboot's to add cheats etc.. is a really easy process if you have the tools.

Example (The Last Of Us)[edit | edit source]

How To: Cheats you can add to your eboot are in this format :

Before you can do this, the Eboot needs to be decrypted through for example SCE Tool. You can use this Self Resigner for nice user interface.

Extract it and place your Eboot in the same folder and run the exe.

Press 1. Decrypt Eboot.bin only (in your folder you now have an Eboot.elf , open this file in a hex editor (like HxD). Hxd Hexeditor

As you see for each cheat there is a (SET OGP) using a hex editor this is the Value you search (the value can be lengthy to make sure you don t find/edit others starting with the same) for in the eboot. The (SET COP) is what you change it to.

In hex editor press search then find and enter one of the SET OGP 7BBD002080A901607FA3EB787CA507B448032A8960000000839E829C

When it finds it press search replace and enter the corresponding SET COP 3CA03B9A60A5C9FF7FA3EB7890A9016048032A8960000000839E829C

In Bold, what you have really modified.

You have now entered your first cheat which in this example was Max Money as 999.999.999 $ in your wallet (See other example above).

If we look quickly more into it, and isolated the modified hexadecimal values, 3CA03B9A60A5C9FF, we can hope to find our "999 999 999" dollars.

As one of the first easy test we can do, we convert "999 999 999" from decimal to hexadecimal, being 3B9AC9FF, and match with our cheat code as we entered 3CA03B9A60A5C9FF.

If now we decide to have less money, let s said 999 999 840 $, we convert this amount on hexadecimal values, 3B9AC960, and enter it inside our new code so being 3CA03B9A60A5C960.

In game, the money on our wallet ll be them 999 999 840 $ so we sure the isolated values are about the amount of money and not just a lucky match. However, only fews values might be really working in-game because you are not modifying your amount money in your save data or but only the codes "left to be unlocked by the game company" or not combined with others codes, or was removed from the update version...

After every cheat entered remember to return to the start at offset 00000000 and click so the next search will start from here. When you have entered your required cheats . Just close the hex editor (remembering to save).

Now back to the self resigner and resign your ELF to Disc Backup Eboot. Swap the cheat eboot with your original one , in your game backup (remember to keep somewhere safe your original eboot/save data/profile).

Boot up the game (in this case no update installed) and cheats should be present.

Code example

On the ELF from the original disc eboot version.
