Now, you're probably thinking "Hey, what the crap is this noob doing posting a thread?" or "He's probably just going to say it's possible and wait for us to do it."
Or something else along those lines. Well, I do have some proof of concept to show in this crappy video here.
(Honestly, my computer can't handle it, so it lags, but I need to show this.)
This is Sonic Colors model Sonic in his raw MDL0 and BRRES form, along with all of his textures, bones and animations, ripped straight from Colors Wii by yours truly.
For those of you who didn't know, Nintendo's Wii BRRES format has been nearly 100% cracked. As of right now, almost everything about them and their inner workings is editable. And when I say everything, I mean everything. Textures can be replaced. Animations can be custom made from scratch. Heck, even the MODELS THEMSELVES can be replaced.
I can take an MDL0, export it to DAE, delete everything but the bones, take a COMPLETELY NEW MODEL off the internet somewhere, rig it using 3DS Max, import it back in the BRRES, and have it work fine.
I hail from Kitty Corps-Meow Mix where the main point is hacking whatever we want into Super Smash Brothers Brawl. (Long story behind the name. Don't worry. we're not furries. Majority of us, anyway.)
If I can do THIS by myself:
And I can attest that the same has been done to Zelda: Skyward Sword AND Mario Kart Wii (Both of which use BRRES),
then I can only infer that it can be done to Sonic Colors as well.
Pretty much all the BRRES files for the game (which are editable with BrawlBox) are held within separate Ninentdo U8 .ARC files which can be opened and modified with the MKWii CTools. And all of those .ARC files are held within "sonic2010_0.cpk." Stages. Enemies. Music. Everything.
What I'd like to know is, do you think that the Generations CPK repacker found on this site would be able to repack this unpacked CPK mess I have here so I can test it on my personally ripped ISO? If it doesn't, do you know of any other CPK repackers I could try?
I could google it, but I'm no programmer and odds are I'll get the wrong one.
