PostSubject: Import GameCube: Mario Kart Double Dash (.arc) into Wii (.szs)   Sat Aug 14, 2010 6:37 am

Hi Everybody,

Edit: Thank u all for the information given, it is really helpfull.

This is what i figured out:

To Export tracks from mario kart Double dash U need:

1. Mario kart ISO or rip.
2. Extract the data from this rip using GC-Tool
3. Browse to the directory root/course
4. Dump files from the arc file (like BabyLuigi.arc) using RARCDUMP.
5. To Import the file [BabyLuigi.bmd] into 3DS Max u need a plugin for 3ds max named MAXBMD.

@ this moment im running out of time, i just figured this out, i will let u know when i have more info.

Thanks to all the users who replied to this topic!

First question, I don't think your doing it right. SZS modifier can only import OBJ files. Look up GCN Rainbow Road on youtube(GCN Port). Second question, edit menusingle_U with SZS Modifier if you use the disc or if you use riivolution, go see me and my friends tutorial on the text hacks section.

The most logical answer is ARC to CARC. CARC to NARC. Open up the NARC for the NSBMD files. Make the NSBMD to OBJ using 3DS Max. But most likely this will not work. Google "How to rip 3D models from a Gamecube Game" or something like that. Once you figure out how, tell me.

Wrong place for this to be in, Admin please move.

I don't know how to do it myself but I will get the hang of it too.

I also want to import courses from Diddy Kong Racing and Kirby Air Ride Razz

Thank u all for this information. I will try some with the given information. Atleast now i know to look in what direction. 3dsmax and narc Smile
Im goin to try and will let u know the results, and if the results do any good upload a movie and the szs files + tutorial for u guys to test it.

@chaoz: Thanks for the info on how to change the track names, it works perfectly. Ive searched this forum and google but not with proper searching keywords i think.

Thanks a lot!

@admin: sorry for misplacing this topic in the wrong forum!

And the ISOs can easily take up 4.37 GB of memory on your PC, which is why I need a 1 TB Harddrive. Razz

cant seem to unpack the arc files, i know they are ARC archives, because the file structure is like it. but its seems to be missing the end.

does anyone know how to unpack the arc files ? i tried a couple of ARC unpackers but with no result..

Thank.

Right now im working with 3ds max and exported frames through emulators but this is not the same, im missing a lot of stuff this way i only have the track but none of the moving background images.

Well Pati knows more about this than I do, but MKDasher knows how to import the most, though he rarely responds to acquiatances like me and Pati.

unpacking .arc files is complicated. i cant do this.You must search the model file in the .arc file.Then you have the track.(i think its so.I heard it).But working with a ripper is also ok, but not the same as the model from the .arc file.

Nearly the same, also it does extract all the graphics, lots of it gets lost and thats a real shame. the idea of exporting the original is for not losing these graphics at the first place.


I found an application that can unpack the arc files. Its named rarcdump. I unpacked the files 100%. Finaly im getting somewhere Very Happy
Ill keep u posted.

LOL damn right Razz

But if we are fooling around enough with 3ds max we also can make really cool stuff.

the application exported everything i needed to have, including the moving backgrounds etc. Now all i have to do is figure out how to get all of this into 3ds max Very Happy But first im going to bed. i think this is stuff for the weekend Razz

xD where do you live?i live in germany so imma going bed too now.I think 3ds max is ok for porting tracks but not for making tracks.I cant model anything with this programmm only with blender.(also with .obj export )or with sketchup.

We are neighbors Razz I live in the Netherlands. Sow im going to bed in a moment as well.

I figured out a lot this day about exporting and importing mario kart tracks from gamecube. I've edited the TS (topic start) to keep this topic neat.

Blender is a oké tool but very limited.... good luck though!

Sweet dreams Razz
