Nintendo 64 Texture Ripping Tutorial
#1
Welcome to the Nintendo 64 Texture Ripping Guide!

I was looking for some good tutorials for N64 texture ripping when I first started doing it, but couldn't find any, so I decided to make one!

=Required Programs=

1.Project64
2.RiceVideoPlugin
3.Any N64 rom
________________
=Setup=

Once you download and install both programs, move all of the files from the RiceVideo folder to the section called "Plugin" in the Project64 folder.
While you have the "Plugin" folder opened, create a new folder, name it texture_dump, this will be where the ripped textures will go once extracted.
Now run the actual Project64 program. Once there, press Ctrl+ T or click "Settings..." in the "Options" menu.
You'll get a window like this...

If you moved the RicePlugin files correctly it should show up in the "Video (graphics) plugin" options when clicked. Select "Mudlord's Rice Video Build 6.1.4" and you are now free to exit the window.

=Ripping the Textures=
Now that you've set everything up, you're now ready to extract the textures!
Open the rom, that you downloaded before, in the Project64 program. You now want to play the game itself until you reach the specific place/room you want to extract the textures from.
I'll be using Kirby 64 for this tutorial.
You'll want to click "Configure Graphics Plugin..."
Place a check mark in the "Dump textures to files" box.

Remember the texture_dump folder you created? If you've done this all correctly, the textures that are being extracted from the game should be appearing in that folder!
That's basically all you need to know, just repeat the process for any rom and it should work fine!

=Tips=
Occasionally you'll have games that do not utilize the control stick, you'll need to assign control keys for the "digital" section of the "Configure Controller Plugin..." menu.



If there is anything I can do to make this easier to understand, let me know! :)

Huh, that's extremely simple and easy, I'm surprised there wasn't a tutorial already. I haven't ripped any textures from N64 games, not that I've wanted to, but with how hard it is to rip models you'd think textures would be pretty difficult too.

Thanks, might give this a go sometime!

but honestly I actually struggled with that plugin not knowing how to use it so I've never really ripped any N64 textures. with this I can finally get started~
it looks to work almost the same way as Dolphin's texture dump too so that's a plus.

I was actually hesitant to post this in the first place because I couldn't believe that there wasn't already a tutorial for N64 textures but I guess it was okay hehe.

It's extremely similar and I loved that about it.

I hope this can help you guys because there needs to be more texture submissions! :p
