Hiya marx_soulgamer!
Could you provide what mobile game you're trying to rip from and the corresponding operating system (iOS or Android)?
The reason that I ask is because mobile game ripping varies based on platform and from app to app.

While I'm not knowledgable in ripping iOS games, I do know how to rip from Android games. Luckily, the .apk file for Battle Cats is readily available online, and can be unzipped just like a .zip file on a PC. Once you get there, let me know what all files you find in the unzipped folder! (Reason being, many games either use Unity Game Engine or just raw images for sprites)

Nowadays, dumping iOS IPAs requires a rooted phone, as all the other methods are unavailable now, and most IPA sites are down. So, probably better to go with APKs as those are easier to find online.

Ok, so I extracted all of the files, and now i'm wondering how i access the actual cat sprites.

What files are there? Can you take screenshots and send samples of the extracted file structure?

Edit: I found this Reddit thread that may help out with decrypting the .list and .pack files found in /assets/: https://www.reddit.com/r/battlecats/comm...th_my_own/

I'd like to ask how to rip sprites from Metal Slug Attack, as all of the sprites are in .msa format.

@Grave: Simply download a msa or universal file viewer to convert them. Here is a website to help with examples:
