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

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

EXTRACTING THE CONTENTS OF THE VPK FILE
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 "Your..game..title..here"]
Image

- 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.
