Perhaps he'd be able to share that decompression info, or make a quick app to do the audio yank for you?

Wanderer Jan 28, 2006

Man... this reminds me of when Square started to make their discs unreadable on computers (or more accurately, files were invisible). I remember popping in FF8 to extract a few movies and there were no files there! I was a very ticked person...

Well, you must've been using the wrong programme then, cos PSX MC works just fine for FFVIII.

Ah, but when FFVIII came out, PSXMc didn't exist. :) PSXVideo was pretty much all that there was, and I don't think it supported it.

Anyway, I'd much rather deal with a filesystem that's invisible to Windows than have to deal with encrypted/compressed data.  Ripping an ISO of the disc isn't hard.  The data's still uncompressed.  Many SE games still use tricks like that.  FFX comes to mind right away.

Just as a sampler to sate the appetites of fellow Hamauzu fans, I've prepared a small treat.

As you may know, Dirge of Cerberus fans have already extracted the movies from the game. In the ending, as the credits roll, Gackt's "REDEMPTION" plays. But then, when it's done, the ending continues. And over this ending is a soft, lovely piece of music that fits in well with Hamauzu's orchestral works in Unlimited SaGa andMusashi Samurai Legend.

I've recorded this music for you. Sorry, but I can't do anything with the dialogue and sound effects. smile

Enjoy.

*snicker*
Just how long did you expect to go on before people began fighting back? tongue

I'm DYING to hear this music. Blast you, Square Enix for your stupid compression routines!

Thanks SquareTex for the sample. It sounds lovely. smile

Fighting back? That's an awfully noble way of looking at moronic internet flame wars.

Coming from a self-admitted troll, that is quite amusing.

I know that you can make good posts, Dais...I've seen them happen HERE. But more often than not...GARBAGE. Sniffy one-liners do not make for intelligent contributions.

Now, if you don't mind, I'd like to return the focus of THIS thread back to the anticipation of Hamauzu's new masterpiece. Can you take your attitude somewhere else, please?

Thank you so much SquareTex!! This music is just WONDERFUL!! I can't wait to get the soundtrack. Masashi Hamauzu will forever be my God. Agh.

Latest word is that DoC uses the same type of compression in its filesystem that the Kingdom Hearts 2 sequences use.
A preliminary PSF2 rip may show up soon.
We'll see. smile

SquareTex Feb 3, 2006

Brilliant! I'll be happy to hear the results. big_smile

I'll be gone for all this weekend, so I'll catch up with y'all later. Have fun! smile

Huh... I guess I assumed that the music was streamed instead of sequenced. I guess I was wrong. wink

Well, actually, a couple of those PSF2's in the Kingdom Hearts 2 prelim set WERE streamed files. So perhaps, much like the Katamari Damacy PSF2 set, they're streams that are easily encapsulated...once the encryption is broken, that is. smile

Are we on the right track, Amber?

Wanderer Feb 8, 2006

Huh... I gotta admit now that I'm baffled. wink

I think that audio technology is changing faster than I can keep up with it.

SquareTex Feb 14, 2006 (edited Feb 14, 2006)

Well, I got an email from PlayAsia saying that the soundtrack is on its way. Hurrah! big_smile

When it arrives, shall I talk about it here, or open a new thread in the proper place (Game forum)?
