Programming / Re: SNES Audio Streaming code
« on: Today at 04:37:11 pm »
To be honnest I don't know the problem.
I made the header to be Lo-ROM, ROM only, and 2 Megabytes (16 megabits). Barely more than 1 MB is needed for a 1 minute song.

I am not very knonwledgable about SNES headers unfortunately.

My header at $7fd4 contains the following :
Code: [Select]
0x20, 0x20, 0x00, 0x0b, 0x07, 0x01, 0x01, 0x00, 0x68, 0x8f, 0x97, 0x70
I think that means Lo-ROM, ROM only, 2 Megabytes, but I'm not 100% sure. At least it seems the powerpak doesn't like it.

I think it makes a good excuse to play this again, and learning some german at the same time.

However I'm afraid that, as usual, the german will be a bit too advanced/complex for me. Words like Arbeeterdenkmal are frightening for us non-german natives.

Also isn't it supposed to be arbeiter- ? Or is Cid supposed to speak with a weird accent / dialekt ?

Just like chaging anything else : Hex editing.

I managed to compile and test it on emulation, but my PowerPak doesn't like the ROM, it complains about the lack of a header. However I think the problem is that you specified usage of the SA-1 chip in the header, which makes it incompatible with the Power Pak.

Can't you make a version without the SA-1 chip, so I can test that on my Power Pak ?


Ok I changed the header on my own, so it is $20, $00, $0b, $07, $01, $01, .... (simple LoROM, ROM only cartridge)

However the Power Pak still complains that it doesn't find the header at $7fc0 when it's here obviously... I don't understand :(

What you discovered is a Chineese pirate. It means it's a crappy game developped by crappy people randomly ripping elements of existing games, and putting a random title on it. You are wasting your time with this kind of games.

Pirated games often use very exotic mappers. However they can be mapper hacked just like any other non-pirate games, the fact it's a pirate doesn't change that.

I've never had to use DosBox. If you're hell-bent on using DOS software, though, it's there and it works fine
Wow, you certainly didn't have to use some of the older romhacking or reverse engineering utilities then. Anything that needs any graphical interface in DOS won't work at all in Windows 7. I'm not sure myself if this is a 16-bit compatibility issue or not, but I definitely had to use DOSBox quite a few times. For example for that programs that allows you to view VRAM in a ZST SNES savestate.

I meant the "Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu" a.k.a Legend of the Galactic Heroes anime.
Sorry but for me it's still impossible to localize what you're talking about.
There seem to be a shitload of games and animes with that name, and all intros I could find in less than 10 minutes are in enlish or japanese.

Ys Origin's French intro
Oh my it is absolutely horrible. Poor pronunciation in itself would be ok as it's common for people to talk with a strong foregin accent, however I can't make sense of what is going on, and they mix up all the verb tenses randomly instead of being consistent which makes me say AARRGGH. Someone learning French certainly shouldn't use simple past, which is normally never used outside of books.

Honnestly, there is estimated to be 200 millions of fluent french speakers arround the world they could hire one of them, no ?

LoGH's German
Could you please explicit what "LoGH" means or put a link so I can listen to this horrible "gelman" intro ? I'd be interested to notice if it is worse than mine (so I can feel better about my german).

The voice acting is pretty outstanding to say the least, [...] Pretty surprising imo, the target audience couldn't understand the language anyway xD
Yes it's surprising, I see it as a form of perfectionism. There is plenty of german people all the way around the globe, so there is most certainly a significant minority in japan. At least I would be surprised if there weren't any.

Oh ok, thank you for seconding what Starscream's affirmation.

It would have made sense to have the talk with an austrian accent, as I think the choice for the german language comes from the fact that back when the book Dracula was written, Transylvania was part of the austro-hungarian empire, technically in the hungarian part of it, but I think german was the only "official" language of the empire, hungarian, romanian and various slavic languages were only spoken by farmers.

Since Dracula was a "noble" his native language was probably german, although this is not specified in the book (or did I miss it ?). All that is specified in the book is that he learned english perfectly in both written and oral forms, and only using books (before they could include audio tapes or CDs in language methods ;) ) which sounds totally impossible, even for an undead creature. This made me smile.

Thank you, that's just what I wanted to know.

ROM Hacking Discussion / Re: Extract audio GBA bios
« on: April 15, 2014, 09:58:55 am »
First of all, none of the GBA bios audio is chiptune, *is it all made with the direct sound channels*

Second, as far I know, there is no raw audio sample in the BIOS in the sappy format. If the samples are there (and they certainly are, unless they are computed "mathematically" which sounds unlikely), they are compressed.

And I know there is a mixing engine in the BIOS, which is used for the jingles and that can be used for games as well (how many games actually uses this ?) but I don't know if there is a (compressed/encrypted) sappy engine in the BIOS.

Imperialistic ?!
Does he sound any Autro-Hungarian imperialistic ?

Great, but that doesn't answer my question about the accent.
It definitely sounds like the guy reading the intro has a non-standard german accent.

Gaming Discussion / Question for german natives (Rondo of Blood intro)
« on: April 14, 2014, 02:49:55 pm »
Mit welches akzent oder dialekt ist das intro von Castlevania - Rando of Blood (PC-Engine) gesprochen ?
(link für das Intro : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkEGFo6GhOo)

Ich verschtehe es nicht ganz, leider is es unmöglich zu eine Transcription auf deutsch zu finden. :(

It seems like, unlike other oriental languages, romanian shares some lexical similitude with french. Is it easy to learn romanian for a french-language native ?

Nope, that's not what I meant !
Just that the last 2 pages of this thread have been sterile in the terms of political debate.

I guess it's becoming a fertile debate, and it's time to lock this thread, which has started to be an endless monologue of Mr. Bing with his crazy conspiration theories, not listening / completely ignoring others saying him that everything he's saying is totally impossible.

Also more than half of all his posts (14/23) are made in this thread only, which leads to the following questions : Did he register here for trolling about Russia, or for romhacking ?

How does a PAL SNES change in the SPC?
Are the timers or pitch-to-sample-rate any different?
As far I know the response to those 2 questions are respectively : Nothing, No.

However, the VBlank runs at 50Hz and the CPU runs at a different pace. This effectively change the CPU Cycle / SPC cycle ratio, which itself varies slightly between consoles of the same region.

Could you please stop to invent bulls***t in order to think you are interesting ?

Yes, the situation is worrying, but most of you're saying is made up lies that makes no sense at all. For instance, the Baltic countries are now fully democratic, are growing economically at a crazy pace, and are even less corrupted than the vast majority of EU countries (Spain, Italy, Greece, etc... are more corrupted than Baltic countries). There is no chance Russia can ever have any significant influence over them for a good long while.

At the end of the day, no single nation can ward off Russian aggression [...] Russia believes itself the rightful ruler of the continent.
Sure, the same can be said about the USA, except they believes themselves the rightful ruler of the world.

Why are you scaling those images so horribly ?
If you're going to upscale them, then you should make sure that each pixels becomes an integer (fixed) number of pixels after scaling.

Only then we'll be able to tell you if it's readable or not.
