split.exe uses INI files to list the address, type and output filename for data within each game file; the SA2 folder in SA Tools should have INI files and batch scripts to use them, but there's only one there, because as usual, our main focus is on the PC version. There's some other data on the SCHG, but you'd have to write the INI files yourself.

Forgive me, but I don't really understand most of what you said. Are you saying that in order to do what I want to do, I need to write my own .ini files?

If you're trying to find data that isn't documented anywhere, split.exe won't help you. You'd have to either dig around with a hex editor or IDA Pro, neither of which is a particularly simple task.

Viewing character models is much easier though, just drop the *MDL.PRS files on splitMDL.exe and it'll make a folder full of *.sa2mdl files you can view in SAMDL (textures are in *TEX.PRS).
