As RRU is certainly not specialized in hacking non-PC games, I'd suggested Googling "ripping files from "Wii U"", and if no handy tools come up then it is not possible for those outside closed circles to do so at this point.

I think Xiron's point is that LCU is only available on Wii U, hence it's not something we're adept at dealing with given that RRU pretty much covers PC games alone, with a couple of exceptions. If there's a way to pull the files off the disc and they happen to work the same as PC versions of TT games, then I'm sure we can be of help.

LEGO Movie Videogame has about half the LCU files within its directories, including a fair few textures and models, so that might be your best shot.

Wii U disc ripping is difficult and expensive. You need a disk drive which can be patched with custom firmware and then a stack of software which isn't reliable and hard to use. It's much harder to take apart the online store files, if you manage to successfully get a copy of them on your PC.

These are the reasons we haven't ripped LCU a new one yet; otherwise I'd be working on porting it to the PC.

I'm surprised this thread isn't full of moaning and complaining, because it's the only kind of discussion related to LCU I've seen on this forum.

We just gotta wait for a method to rip Wii U files.

I'm working currently on extracting the cxi files from the case begins but they are encrypted 

So let me get this straight: You own LEGO City Undercover, and have succeeded in loading the files on your PC. However, they are all encrypted. Is that it?

Would you mind uploading pictures of the game-folder and its subfolders? You're not the only person interested in this, but with just the information you've given us, there's not much we can do.

It's still something, no?

*the Wii-U version.

 

Ah, so a file ripping tool exists for Wii-U exists now. Good to know (I think hints outside of RRU and LEGO games entirely could of personally told me that ages ago. :P).

So, the algorithm is almost the same I used for this: http://www.rockraidersunited.com/topic/6612-fib-files/?do=findComment&comment=119212

It was described in http://zenhax.com/viewtopic.php?t=380

The result of the posted example from this request post is this one:

I do not have many examples. But I will do some further tests and then post a tool for decompression.

Update: Here it is.

Added link for the tool
