Checklist (Important)

Announcement

Rules for posting on this site.
Follow them or have your posting rights removed or be banned.

[cut=Full List Of Rules]*  If a topic makes no sense to you, do not ask broad questions about it.  We have a lot of developer posts that will make no sense to someone who doesn't know how to program or has not taken the time to explore the game files.


*  All modifications we release for the xbox will require a modified xbox.  Ask for instruction and then tell us you don't have one will result in banning/deletion of all posts for failure to read instructions.  THERE WILL BE NO SAVES ON THIS SITE SO DO NOT REQUEST THEM.


*  We do not endorse pirating.  Suggesting or asking for such will get you banned.  If you like a game BUY IT.  People worked hard to make something to entertain you, it's the least you can do.  If you are caught without one of these you will be banned.


*  Posting of original game files is strictly prohibited.  If you have code to share post just the code you have made.  Only attach files if you have created an application or something similar that requires the attachment.  If you made many changes to a file but did not change ALL of it then post a PPF or something similar to avoid posting any original code at all.  Do not link to original files either.  Either way it's just the same as posting them here.


*  Harassing admins/moderators through PM/Email because of your own inability to work things out with other people in the forums will result in loss of PM an removal of ability to post.


*  Harassing admins/moderators through PM/Email because of your own inability to read posts and stickies in the forums with any compitence will result in loss of PM an removal of ability to post.


*  Harassing or just flooding a topic/person because you are too lazy to use search will get your posting rights removed.  Search exists for a reason and we won't deal with people that constantly ask for things that are easy to find with search.


*  Public bashing of other members will get your posts removed.  If it is done repeatedly you will get your account banned.


*  Posting a reply to merely say you don't know or you also want to know something is a waste of space and all of our collective time (assuming you weren't asked directly, but if you were it probably should have been done in PM).  Repeated offenders will get their posting rights removed.

*  Do not cross post questions/requests in forums.  Pick the appropriate forum and post it there.  People read in all of the forums and don't need to see the extra spam.


*  Everything on this site is provided AS IS.  If you use a tool that someone wrote here and it crashes your computer, we don't care.  The programmer should be informed with as much information as you can provide in order to prevent that from happening again though.

*  Being an open forum, try to contribute to it.  As in by helping crack file formats or developing new tools or game modifications.  Leeches are never appreciated.  Especially when they are ungrateful for the work that other people put into doing something for them.  Being ungrateful is a very quick path to being banned.


*  Lack of acting like a mature person or inability to type in proper english or something close to it will not be tolerated (i.e. l33t,ALL CAPS, or IM shorthand).


Basically, this is a technically based Fable modding site.  This is NOT a playground. [/cut]

If you have a problem with these rules, don't come here.

Failure to not read the stickies on forums (like this one) is not an excuse.  Failure to read this post is also not an excuse.

My understanding is that you can gut your 360, take out the HDD, stuff it in your computer, or use a SATA<->USB adapter to save time. From there I've no clue, but I do know that Xplorer360 or something like that is to be used somewhere down the road.

If you want the ISO instead of forty-something 162MB files, you can do this (third post, linked it to you in IRC).

I'm aware of how to get the split archive on my PC. I've already done so, like I stated. Hooking up your HDD to your PC doesn't require opening the 360 though, the HDD is external, all you have to do is open it.

I don't want to take apart my DVD drive in order to hotswap though, so wxRipper is a no-go for me.

But basically what I want to know is how to get into the split dump.

Well, i was able to re-download Fable 2 from teh internets, so if the only issue is that then you should try to visit torrent sites and see if you can download it like i did. Then you can use wx360 or something similar to extract the files.

XDVDMulleter is among my favorites.
A little trouble finding the pinhole (no penor jokes please) but all is taken care of. We helped him out in IRC and he's got it now.

Its, actually, pretty easy to get the files out of the NXE dump.
You "just" have to merge all the parts together, delete the custom header and then you can extract the .iso with wx360.
There is just missing the Dashboard Update ... but I think you dont really need it ;D

If you need help, hook me up on IRC.

@John: Actually, wxRipper refused to work. The latest version (1.2) would always say the hotswap was too small (I know it shouldn't have been). In the version previous to that (1.1 beta) it actually recognized the hotswap, but when it said something like "Unknown game! Starting unknown game method." I would get an error which asks me whether to continue or quit running the program. When I clicked "Continue" the program would still respond, but nothing in the program actually did anything (clicking spin drive would still show the button click animation, but the drive would not spin). In version 1.0, it said "Unknown Game!" and would do nothing afterwards (I'm assuming the program did not have an unknown game method in that version).

@Vengance: What can I do to merge the parts? That's the thing I've been stumped on the whole time.

Well fiddlesticks. Well, there's still xI V3n93ance Ix's method.

The general idea is to take the contents of each file and just add them sequentially to a single file, then getting rid of the 8192 byte header. I would think that there would be some more stuff to get rid of at the beginning and end of each file, but you'd have to talk to xI V3n93ance Ix for any details on that.

At that point, you have an ISO glued back together. With this ISO, you can use XDVDMulleter (first download listed).

Or you can do like our foxy coder and download the torrent. Note on that for others: I only throw this out there as a suggestion because Zamurick actually purchased the game, I don't encourage nor condone piracy, anyone dumb enough to publicly state that they have pirated Fable II will be banned for piracy and dense stupidity.

I'm curious if the nxe dump header changes if you use a custom (as in changed files) burned DVD.

There's a lot of unknown stuff related to nxe. And while using burned DVD's to test stuff may be a pain in the ass now it would at least answer some lingering questions we have on how the game acts.

The Header is not the Problem.
People allready figuered out how to get "custom" NXE dumps to work.
The REAL problem ist the CON file one directory above the dump. That one is with the KV signed from the Xbox where it got created. Actually it wouldnt be that hard, but the dump dissapears when you sign it with an another, workin KV from another Xbox.

That means that we would have to get the KV from our own 360´s ...
Bad thing on that ... its nearly impossible ;) ._.


@Zamurick
Download and install HxD.
Search under "Extras" for the Data-merge function.
Now just select all files and let it work.

After that, delete the strange 8192 bytes header, open up wx360 and extract all data.

I used HxD for the first one.

Am I supposed to join just Data0000 - Data0042 or am I also supposed to merge that other file in the directory above?

So what's in the con file then? CRC checks?
And if we're looking at a brick wall, what does the nxe con resigner do?

In "normal" CON files the CRC checksum ( or something like this :x ) is encrypted with RSA 1024.
But the "NXE dump" CON file contains the CRC checksum of all the dump files together.

The resigning and hashing would not be the problem.
But that thing with the KV ...
Today I will talk to some guys ... hopefully they can giveme some more information, so I dont have to "say" it with my crappy english  xP ^^


@Zamurick
Just the "DataXXXX" files.
The CON file above is useless.
