Topics I've Started
10 October 2012 - 02:40 PMHey guys, been quite some time since I've cared to do anything ROM-hacking related, hope everyone here is doing well!
Since my leave of absence here I've been focusing mostly on coding and making music - I have been asked by several of my friends to do a remix album for video game songs and the very first one I could think of was Collison Chaos Past (I usually listen to the US soundtrack but from what I understand the 'Past' soundtracks are the same). I use Logic Pro and an AKAI MPC 1000 for beatmapping, and I found some great MIDI versions of the song, but without the original samples I'll never really get it, or any of the other Sonic tunes I'd want to remix, down exactly the way I want.
My question is, how do I extract the PCM samples from the tracker bits for these songs? Surely they're compressed somehow, I really don't even remember where to get started on it, I've got a download of the Sega CD version here and it contains one file ('Sonic.bin') and 35 MP3 files, none of which are the 'Past' audio because these have been created through a tracker, evidently.
These samples are beautiful and this track is awesome (I'm intending to get my band to do some live instruments, too, but there's particular voices I really want to use, such as the digeridoo-type sound in the background, and the initial intro samples)...I'd love to create some badassery with it, and if you guys could lend me a hand that'd be swell.
Hope I provided enough detail, I'm on a Mac but I can certainly run a Windows VM if I've got to use some Windows-only utilities.
EDIT: by looking on the wiki, it looks like the PCM samples are contained in 'SNCBNKB1.BIN' and 'SNCBNKB2.BIN' - but I have no idea what to do with those files, or how to extract them from my main '.bin' file I've got.
05 July 2009 - 05:13 PMHey, I'm looking for entire maps of the background art for Sonic CD, specifically for Wacky Workbench's past level - does anybody know where you can find things like these? All I've seen so far is like the level layouts, I'd really like the background just as one big image file. Same with a lot of levels from Sonic CD.
27 April 2009 - 08:56 AMAlright, so I finally hopped on the Wii bandwagon, just got one this weekend, already done the Twilight Hack, got the homebrew channel installed, WAD injector installed, and downloaded a few WADs and installed them. I've got a few questions and I would like suggestions for games, as well.
How do I burn ISO files and play them in the Wii? Where is a reliable, torrent-free place to find such files? I wod lik a links. (I use rapidshare, megaupload, etc, please no 'use torrents kthx').
How do I play DVD's on my Wii without hardware modifications? I don't have a DVD player and use a Data projector for my video games. It'd be sweet to be able to just pop my season set dvd's in there, and not have to connect my iMac media server to the projector.
I should mention I'm on the 3.2U firmware (I've heard this is good)
And lastly, what games *must* I download? So far, my list is:
- Super Mario Galaxy
- Metroid Prime 3
- Twilight Princess (I rented my copy to do the hack)
- Zack and Wiki
- Brawl (I don't even have melee, but I did download SSB64 as a WAD)
- Super Paper Mario
- Sonic Unleashed
That's just to start. I know there's more, better games even, but it's just I can only download so many at one time lol.
Thanks a lot guys! Sorry that I'm such a turd with this shit.

22 February 2009 - 09:39 AMSeriously, SRB2 is undoubtedly the best 3D sonic game ever made - fan or otherwise. (Although I've never played Unleashed, it sure beats Adventures 1+2, Heroes, and 2k6 in terms of being an actual classic sonic game.) The level design reeks of classic Sonic, along with the graphical style. The controls might be a little iffy but it's got a great community, awesome music, and some really sweet unlockables that show off some amazing shit - they've even got an entire NiGHTS engine built in. Fuck. How could you possibly dislike this game and call yourself a sonic fan?
I'm really interested to hear what people who hate it have to say.
