Has anyone ever come across this hack by DarkyBenji?

Also a video by the same guy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLgDH_fQhww

He says he uses a tool called VMT made by Schthack for PSO. VMT can open PVR files within a prs without having to decompress it. I found the tool but when ever I try to replace a texture, the prs file becomes a lot larger than the original file, so it cannot be put back into the GC iso. I was wondering if anyone else has ever used this tool, and if so if they could give me a few pointers. You can download VMT here.

Those are some pretty whacked out chao he's got. He didn't hack any of them, did he? Tell me the watermelon one is legit.

Ya you can give Chao a watermelon to wear. It's just a helmet, there are no watermelon chao (Although that'd be quite awesome)

It's entire body is watermelon colored.

EDIT: Anyway, he has some hacked chao in there. Like the shiny clear Knuckles chao or that Purplish Amy chao.

So could I ask some of you to try this tool to see if you get any better results? I think VMT outputs it as a pvm so you could use stealth's prs compressor or puyo tools. I don't know which compression format on puyo tools .prs uses can anyone answer me that?

I have by no means the understanding of the format and I won't pretend to either, however, nearly all compression formats I've known, compress much more easily when the data is less complexe, have you tried replacing the texture with something a lot more simpler? Surely upon compressing it again, the data would result a lot more smaller in size.

Again, pardon my ignorance, like I said, I have no understanding of the format, just thought I'd give a suggestion.

I was super impressed that he had a Gamecube ISO running off an external drive, until I found out he was doing it through a hardware mod. Man, I wish we had a way to play gc ISOs off an hdd via softmod. sad.png

Yeah, me too. I have pretty much all of my Wii games backed up onto a harddrive and would have loved to know there was a way to play GC games through a softmod. =/
