Can someone please tell me the easiest plug-in to use for ripping N64 textures (and maybe how they do it)? Seeing as this is my very first time, I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing... ;
Well, since you asked nicely...
What I use is Mudlord's Rice Video Build
(The official site
seems to have some security certificate problems at the moment...) with Project 64
. Simply install the plugin into the "Plugins" folder in the folder for the Project 64 program, and the video settings in the actual program should have a Texture Dump feature. It automatically dumps the textures of whatever's onscreen (For fighting games like ClayFighter and Rakuga Kids, I find that quickly pausing and unpausing just long enough to allow one frame of animation to load is good. It's tricky, but it's the best way I've figured out.) You should get the hang of it pretty quickly.
Just remember to turn it off after getting what you want, or it will keep dumping textures.
I organize the sprites in Game Maker, to preserve the transparency, but I understand new versions of MS Paint can do that now, am I right?
