Description #

This program can find and extract the room backgrounds from Resident Evil Remake and Resident Evil Zero for GameCube. It’s not perfect and some of the extracted images will be corrupted. The program can’t insert the images back. It’s just for taking a look at those backgrounds :P

The program also works with trial and beta versions of the mentioned games, so you’ll be able to find some interesting stuff, like beta unfinished levels.

How to use #

  • Press Extract Background(s)... to select one or more files to extract. Resident Evil Remake stores the backgrounds in *.bgz files found inside the folders st1\, st2\, st3\, st4\, st5\. Resident Evil Zero’s backgrounds can be found in *.mhp files inside the folder bio0\bg\.
  • In order to see the extracted images with any image viewer, they need to be fixed. The program usually detects which images need to be fixed, but sometimes it doesn’t. So some images will be corrupted. In that case, you can try selecting those *.jpg files by presing the Fix JPG(s)... button. However, some images can’t be fixed because they are encoded in some JPG variant that I haven’t been able to figure out.
