Xenosaga Disc Tools 2022-08-18

No permission to download
  • We have officially opened today, 02Jan2021. Welcome to the forum. Please have fun!
These tools can be used to open the .iso files for games in the Xenosaga series and access/change them.

This has been used in the past to create the popular "Undub" version of the Xenosaga video games you sometimes see on ROM sites, as well as the Chinese HD edition beta we have uploaded here. It can be used to repack and modify textures, models, dialog, fmvs, etc. and romhack the game.

We intend to use these tools as a part of the ongoing HD restoration project. I will write a more in-depth guide on how to use these soon, but for now, the original readme and PDF are included in the file which should be enough for someone with a little bit of command line skills to get started.

A special thanks to "Lybac" for creating these tools and distributing them 16 years ago and a super special thanks to @tomxie for archiving them and letting me redistribute them for use back on the web.

Tools (they all work in command line)

To use them you need to have the table and the munge file of one of the packs, the table is the .x0 file and to get the munge file you need to join the
files following. For example for the pack 0 you need X3.00 and a file F3.big that you get by joining X3.01 and X3.02 with the command

copy /b X3.01 + X3.02 X3.big

-Xeno1Lbae.exe and Xeno23Lbae.exe extract the munge file table from the .x0 file. The first one works with Xeno 1 and the second with xeno 2 and 3.
-Xenounpack.exe unpacks the munge file to a UNPACKED rep. You need an extracted table to make it work. It works with all xeno games
-xenorepack.exe repack the munge file and build a new table file (that you will need to repack with the last programm). You still need the old extracted
table for this programm.
-XenoLbar.exe repacks the table file given by xenoreapack.exe to a standard .x0 file.

Things you need to replace in packs 1 and 2 : everything but the subtitles (I include some retimed subtitles files with the tools for the scenes where
the timing was way off)

Things you need to replace in pack 0 :

-rep KAO (models
-rep SND (and all its sub reps)
-rep PAC (and all its sub reps)
-rep MG1/com/sound/voices
-rep /ef/esp/ (there is a sub rep us you have replace the two files that are in it with the two corresponding file taht are just in
/ef/esp/ in tha jap version)
-rep /ef/esd/ and sub-reps (there is a sub-rep us replace its files by those that are in the sub-rep jp on the jap version)
-rep MDl (and all its sub reps)

Finally put the sb files given with this tutorial in /cf/us/. And you're done.

Rebuild the munge files, then the table files. Rebuild the iso with Sony CD/DVD gen, burn (or put it on your PS2 hd) and play.

Enjoy!
