Re: HOTD VMC Extractor: A tool to extract textures...

Hey guys, I found another way to extract textures from this game. It's not for PC, but for the arcade ROM. It's pretty easy- all you gotta do is get the Sega Model 2 Emulator and a rom for the arcade version of House of the Dead (I got mine from Emu Paradise, and just keep in mind it's listed as being for MAME, but it definitely works with Sega Model 2)

When you load the rom, select the "Game" tab in the window's toolbar, and click on "Dump Texture Cache" in the drop down menu. The textures PNGs will be found in a TEXCACHE folder in the same directory you installed the emulator.

Only problem it the textures are tiny (which is to be expected since it IS an old game) and in grayscale. This kinda makes it harder to tell what is what, which is why I'm hoping we can still somehow find a way to extract the colored VMC files from the PC version.

Here is a few I compiled together-
