I test games and enjoy boring pedantic work. If I do something wrong/stupid please tell me on my discussion page or right here, I don't care where.

TMD scrape script

Adapted from User:PowerKitten's script to work on Linux.

Open a terminal, make a TMDs directory (mkdir ~/TMDs), then save the following script to your desktop in a text editor as


cd ~/TMDs && curl -f{41,42,43,44,45,46,47,48,49,4A,4B,4C,4D,4E,4F,50,51,52,53,54,55,56,57,58,59,5A}{30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37,38,39,41,42,43,44,45,46,47,48,49,4A,4B,4C,4D,4E,4F,50,51,52,53,54,55,56,57,58,59,5A}{30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37,38,39,41,42,43,44,45,46,47,48,49,4A,4B,4C,4D,4E,4F,50,51,52,53,54,55,56,57,58,59,5A}{41,42,43,44,45,46,47,48,49,4A,4B,4C,4D,4E,4F,50,51,52,53,54,55,56,57,58,59,5A}/tmd --output 00010001#1#2#3#4.tmd

Then in your terminal run sh ~/Desktop/ and it'll begin scraping the 850,000 possible IDs.

Make a copy of the ~/TMDs directory to ~/TMDcopy, and make another folder ~/renamedTMD. This is the C program I used to rename them all to Dolphin's 6-character IDs (pls no bully I wrote this, not portable, requires changing all the numbers and the username from "xerxes" to your username because I'm garbage):

#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>

char hexToChar(int n)
	switch (n)
		case 0x0:
			return '0';
		case 0x1:
			return '1';
		case 0x2:
			return '2';
		case 0x3:
			return '3';
		case 0x4:
			return '4';
		case 0x5:
			return '5';
		case 0x6:
			return '6';
		case 0x7:
			return '7';
		case 0x8:
			return '8';
		case 0x9:
			return '9';
		case 0xA:
			return 'A';
		case 0xB:
			return 'B';
		case 0xC:
			return 'C';
		case 0xD:
			return 'D';
		case 0xE:
			return 'E';
		case 0xF:
			return 'F';
			return '0';
	return '0';

int main()
	char fromfilename[100] = {0};
	strcpy(fromfilename, "/home/xerxes/TMDcopy/000100014A414A4A.tmd\0");
	char tofilename[100] = {0};
	strcpy(tofilename, "/home/xerxes/renamedTMD/JAJJ01.tmd\0");
	char buffer[2] = {0};
	FILE *file;
	int count = 1;
	int i, k, m, o;
	for (i = 0x41; i <= 0x5A; ++i)
		fromfilename[29] = hexToChar(i / 16);
		fromfilename[30] = hexToChar(i % 16);
		for (k = 0x30; k <= 0x5A; ++k)
			if (k == 0x3A)
				k = 0x41;
			fromfilename[31] = hexToChar(k / 16);
			fromfilename[32] = hexToChar(k % 16);
			for (m = 0x30; m <= 0x5A; ++m)
				if (m == 0x3A)
					m = 0x41;
				fromfilename[33] = hexToChar(m / 16);
				fromfilename[34] = hexToChar(m % 16);
				for (o = 0x41; o <= 0x5A; ++o)
					fromfilename[35] = hexToChar(o / 16);
					fromfilename[36] = hexToChar(o % 16);
					if ((file = fopen(fromfilename, "rb")))
						tofilename[24] = i;
						tofilename[25] = k;
						tofilename[26] = m;
						tofilename[27] = o;
						fseek(file, 0x198, SEEK_SET);
						fread(buffer, 1, 2, file);
						tofilename[28] = buffer[0];
						tofilename[29] = buffer[1];
						printf("%d\t\t%s\n", count, tofilename);
						rename(fromfilename, tofilename);

With that done, this should rename and then move each TMD file to an appropriate "ID".tmd file with the ID used by Dolphin within the ~/renamedTMD folder. Then you're done!


On September 3-5, 2017, I got to watch User:Lucario and User:Kolano make a near-perfect forgery of MediaWiki's default header because it seemed like a better place to put a link.
