Hi i'm looking for the Delphinus model for a little mod project i'm doing, I have been looking through the forum and have not found anything Crying or Very sad, maybe me though.



Can any one help?

I use 3ds max and lightwave at present

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, so I'm hoping it is.

thanks for looking

Here's how to get the Delphinus Model...

1) Find an uncompressed ISO of Skies of Arcadia Dreamcast.
2) Download ExMLDNet - it's download URL is down a couple of threads.
3) Find the right field file and extract the model.
4) Assemble the model in your favorite 3D app.

I made a point a long time ago not to provide the extracted models, but to provide links to the tools to do so...

EDIT : If you need a larger version, you can download the delphinus_beta map, also mentioned a couple of threads down, and decompile the map to get a very large model. I have given permission to do that, mainly because many eyes are better than one...

I managed to find a version of it for dreamcast, but it is in cdi format, my emulator works with it but i am unsure how to open the file otherwise, does it need mounting or something?

The way I do it personally is find a tool that will allow you to convert the .cdi file into a .iso file. You can then open the .iso file with a program like WinRAR and extract all of the files.

Also, make sure it is NOT the Echelon rip of the dreamcast game. Usually, it will be mentioned somewhere in the file name or torrent descriptor.

I have a few experiments to try but I think I've got the compression scheme that Echelon used... PRS. It's embedded into the DC BIOS, and would require very little excess coding to make it work, probably hooked into the fopen function...

The compressed data looks an awful lot like my test files for my adaption of the PRS compression/decompression utility Fuzziqer wrote a while back...
