Extract 3d models from your favorite PlayStation 2 Games

The purpose of this wiki is to gather further knowledge of how 3d objects are stored in PlayStation 2 games. While there is no single 3d format used on all PlayStation 2 games, some games might share similar formats if they were both developed using the same software or by the same programmers.

I accept ALL requests, and I always go back to earlier unfinished ones once I learn something new. Email me at albinoleopard@yahoo.com if you want something or have a special request, or leave a message on this site, or send a pm to "3dformat". I am currently learning the scripting language called "QuickBMS" which will allow me to write tools that can extract and convert models from games automatically, for example from "ICO" or "Timesplitters 2" and numerous others.

See The List of Games for a list of the PS2 games on this wiki.
See Scripts To Convert Models for scripts that will extract and convert models from various games.
See How To Extract Models to learn how to create scripts yourself and the general theory.
See Non PS2 Games for scripts for non PS2 games.

If you see a message in your browser asking if you want to run a java application, you can click yes, and the 3d model below will load.

Note to users: how would I get this model viewer to load on demand such that it would not load until someone clicked and confirmed they wanted it to load.
Hold the left mouse button to drag, and hold down the right mouse button to zoom in and out. Right click and press "new display" to see the model in fullscreen. Coming soon: Textures.
This is Hunter's NPC model from Spyro A Hero's Tail:

I have created some automatic scripts that will convert models (both characters and buildings), from the game ICO into .3ds files. Download the scripts and read the instructions.


I have created some automatic scripts that will convert character models, from Shadow Hearts Covenant into .3ds files.

Download the scripts and read the instructions here:
