    Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil 4 model extraction?

    A couple days ago a friend of mine ripped a bunch of model files from both Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil 4 and sent them to me. The file format for RE0 is in .arc format and the format for RE4 is in .drs.

    I've come to the conclusion that .arc is a rarc encrypted compressed file correct? But what I want to do is open these files and extract them, edit the textures and export them to a supported 3D model format such as .3ds then use them in a game that I am making. What program/software do I need in order to extract these files? And how can I export them to a supported 3D file format such as 3D Studio Max, or Direct .X?

    As for Resident Evil 4, I am totally confused about the file format ".drs." One thing it might be is Capcom created their own file format for this specific game, if thats the case then there is no way we can ever use those files unless some one invents a software using C++ to decrypt those files. Although a few people that I know were able to rip the sound files as well as beta backgrounds from RE4 and decompress them into supported file formats (e.g. JPEG, MP3 etc.)

    Files in RE0 include:
    demobi00.arc
    demore00.arc
    demobi01.arc
    demore01.arc
    demore02.arc
    em0d.arc
    em1b.arc
    em3a.arc
    em10.arc
    em22.arc
    em31.arc
    em44.arc

    Files in RE4 include:
    pl0a.drs
    pl0b.drs
    pl0c.drs
    pl00.drs
    pl01.drs
    pl02.drs
    pl03.drs
    pl04.drs
    pl05.drs
    pl06.drs
    pl07.drs
    pl08.drs
    pl09.drs

    Assuming 'pl' means player, since my friend specifically sent me the player files for RE4.



    I really need help, I've been searching google for something related to this for like 3 days and haven't had any luck.

    Also I can't be bothered to code a file viewer that supports this format because I don't know how to program anything.

    Yeah I can't get anyone to extract them for me. I take it that no one else is going to help?

    game producers dont make their games in a supported format usually they change the file extension or they modify the format so it is not supported but if you no C++ its usually not hard to reverse engineer a viewer. For the .arc try WinRar or thakis' szs/arc extractor
