Hello.

I've followed instructions from http://www.ngemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=52804 for ripping movies from PS2 games.

I grabbed and split the ISOs for Shadow Hearts: Covenant. Problem is, every time I get the extraction program to try and nab movies from the partitions, it gets stuck reading the first MPG it finds. The read speed goes down to 0 kb/sec, the little status indicator square turns red, and the little magnifying glass icon just keeps going around and around.

I was just wondering if anyone else has encountered this problem and if there is some solution to get around it. =/ I'm a little frustrated about this because I know someone else that used this method and it worked.

I dunno if this makes any difference but I'm using version 2.4.37.918 of Extractor and 3.5.1.0 of DVD Decrypter (with default configurations for each, as far as I recall).

Thanks in advance.

Hey,

Thanks for using the guide that I have posted!

First of all, not all games work that way. This is only for PSS file extraction. I do not know why some games work while others do not. But I do know that If you press "Ctrl R," look under the false streams area, remember the number for "MPG," close the window you just opened and press "Ctrl R" again and the number changes then its at a spot where it continues to find False streams and it should take a while for it to get passed that part. If the number stays the same then this method of extracting FMV's is not for you. I do not know why it stays the same. All I can tell you is that game doesn't work, like Kingdom Hearts.

I hope this helps.

If you have any further questions contact me any way you want to (info in profile).

I know that it doesn't work for everything, but I'm just baffled that someone else managed to rip the movies from the game using the same method. ^^ I take it that if it's just data I'm ripping, it wouldn't differ from one DVD to another, would it?
