Barenuckle 3 w/ Barenuckle Soundtracks?
« on: May 02, 2020, 02:56:49 am »
Hi there guys,
Just wanted to know if someone already done this?

Eventhough I love Barenuckle 3, the music is not as good as Barenuckle 2, so I would like to known if one of the excellent :thumbsup: rom modders have already done this alteration.

Apologies if this as been asked/answered before, I'm new to the site.

Cheers!

Yes! I would love a OST hack removing every single song from SoR3 and replacing with songs from SoR1 and 2 (or other fitting songs? like adventures of batman and robin have some tunes that would fit).
I think the random ost has always made the game unplayable. I know some people like it, but that's me.
But this belongs in the hack ideas thread.

While there are documents on the site, Streets of Rage 1 & 2 use a different sound driver from the 3rd game, making trying to use the data from either games impossible. This requires either a conversion of both games or using music from Beyond Oasis.

I think there are a few hacks that change the music.

Someone posted about the "Mega Drive Plus" a while ago.
http://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php?topic=29280

That will allow you to replace the game's soundtrack with pretty much anything you want, once someone does a little hacking. Considering how popular these games are, it's probably only a matter of time.
This signature is an illusion and is a trap devised by Satan. Go ahead dauntlessly! Make rapid progres!

There is a way to hack the music if someone understands the Coordination flags or whatever it's called. I think the sound driver from Streets of Rage 2 & 3 might be the same and Streets of Rage 1 and 2 Beta sound driver are the same.
I might go back to Thunder Force II hacking again.

If I recall correctly, Streets of Rage 1 & 2 uses a SMPS custom, while the 3 uses the Ancient sound driver. The only other game I know that uses the same driver is Beyond Oasis, and the music might not fit in.

Converting it might not be horrible, just tedious. Alternately, you can mess with the music patches and see what happens.
