Updates

Minor changes
  • Fixed some scripts that had random bytes applied to the file and some typos which would prevent dumping or dump the wrong game.
  • Added batch scripts which automate most of the extracting process (thanks M-1)

Prequesites

GodMode9 (You need to have 1.2.7 or higher)

This pack (contains gm9 scripts and other things for this guide, as well as nearly everything to get started. Extract into your downloads folder)

Python 2.7 (go to this link and follow section IV if you need this)

An SD card with about 2gb of free space



Dumping the game and update

1) Place the gm9 folder from the above zip in the root of your SD card.

2) Open GodMode9 and press the home button.

3) Select more... > scripts... > ssb4 dumping script (related to your game version and region)

4) Continue at "Extracting and merging"

Dumping update files 

(Note: only follow this if you are lacking just the update files or are needing to get a new update version)

1) Place the gm9 folder from the above zip in the root of your SD card.

2) Open GodMode9 and press the home button.

3) Select more... > scripts... > ssb4 dumping script (the update script for your region)

4) Continue at "Extracting and merging"

Extracting and merging

1) Turn off your console and put your SD card into your PC (if you cannot do this, you could transfer over FTP, but it will take a long time)

2) Go to the "smash 3ds almost-all-in-one" folder (this should be in your downloads folder) and run "extract game.bat" this will ask for your SD card drive and copy everything you extracted to the correct folder (given that you extracted the zip to your downloads folder)

3) Go to "obtaining files/base game/" and run "extract_game.bat" this should extract every file into the data folder. Once that is done, move it where you wish.

4) Go to "obtaining files/update" and run "extract_update.bat" (note: there is no indication of this happening besides spam refreshing the outdir folder or watching the task manager). If nothing happens, follow the next section and come back to this step. Place this wherever you wish as well. You may merge the base game and update files so that you do not have anything outdated. Older files will typically lead to issues.

5) Create a folder on your PC somewhere so that you can place all your files in one location. Put the sound folders from both the base game, and the update in there.

Installing Python 2.7

1) Download either the x86-64 installer for 64 bit Windows, or x86 installer for 32 bit Windows (if you are unsure which you have, download the x86 installer).

2) Run the installer and click next until you get to the "Customize Python 2.7.xx" screen.

3) Scroll through the options until you get to "Add python.exe to Path" and select "Will be installed on the local hard drive."

4) Finish the install.

    As far as the dumping script for the digital copy (US), it keeps saying the extraction failed. Any idea what the problem is? I'm using Gmod9 1.2.8. The update extracts fine but the game itself just doesn't want to work.
