Guide for Intermediate Users: Install VPK dumps using MaiDumpTool

Postby Kanon Schreiber Tue Dec 27, 2016 12:06 pm

VPK dumps consume twice the space which is quite a hassle for users
who has very minimal space to spare on their PSV memory cards.

This guide explains how to convert (extract) vpk dumps to be installed
using the MaiDumpTool

• Latest version of MaiDumpTool installed on your PSV
• 7zip program (archiver) installed on your PC
• Some common sense and patience

You'll see the file of the vpk dump in the example is as follows:
[Amnesia Memories [US] [PCSE00647] [VT].vpk]

- Right click on the VPK file then select [7zip]

- Upon hovering or clicking on the option [7zip], a sub-menu will show
- Select the option [Extract to ""]

- 7zip will extract the contents of the VPK into a folder
in the same directory where your VPK file is.

- The extracted contents will be saved in a folder with same file name.
- You will need to rename this folder into the game's corresponding GAME ID.

How to Get the GAME ID? Check the tutorial I made for that:

- In the example above, the GAME ID for Amnesia Memories [US] is PCSE00647

Once you have renamed the folder to it's respective GAME ID,
simply copy/transfer the file into the ux0/mai directory.

Install it like any other game dumped with the MaiDumpTool.

Forgot how to Install using MaiDumpTool?
I made a separate tutorial for that as well for you.
