Extracting CPS3 rom sounds
« on: February 26, 2014, 09:20:04 pm »
There's a tool to extract and insert sounds on a CPS3 rom? I would like to extract some sounds from Street Fighter III - 3rd Strike.

A bit of Googling suggests that people have already extracted all this data in the past, possibly from the Dreamcast version.
This signature is an illusion and is a trap devised by Satan. Go ahead dauntlessly! Make rapid progres!

I need for the arcade version. I found this, but I can't find the software he said, the ByteSwap one.

Well, if it's just a matter of byteswapping, it looks like you can do that with ucon64.  The link implies that you will have to force it to recognize the ROM as an N64 ROM.

...What difference could it make?

The game plays very different on each version. Dreamcast and the Xbox versions are the worst. PS2 is the closest to the arcade version.

I will give the Ucon64 a try.

I'll take your word for it, but surely the sound effects at least would be pretty much identical from one version to another?  Whatever.

I mean it's different in a high level play. The PS2 version is faster than the arcade version, for an example.
I intend to modify some sounds and I will play it with my friends, for that, the arcade version is best version available (besides the Online Edition for past-gen consoles).

If you mean against the original, yeah, maybe. I’ve seen netcode that outright disallows different ROMs going head to head for that reason.

Most sound mods, on the other hand, shouldn’t affect the game state very much; for better or worse, most game developers like to treat sound as a “fire and forget” thing. This does lead to some subtle forms of cheating in some games (think wallhack)....
