Quote from: ShadowOne333 on February 24, 2021, 03:35:06 PMGood day.Lately I've been playing a hack of Resident Evil Director's Cut Dual Shock, called Resident Evil Ultimate Director's Cut Dual Shock, which can be found here:https://nobelgas.blogspot.com/2019/02/resident-evil-ultimate-directors-cut.htmlI did some runs of the game, and it's quite good the amount of stuff that is restored and uncensored for this hack. However, there's two things specifically that I'm not fond of to make this the ultimate way to experience the original Resident Evil Director's Cut on console:The modified graphics for the Warning Screen, Logo, title screen, etc.The new "Deranged" mode. Feels really weird and weirdly put together.So, given those two things, I wanted to attempt removing those two things, and putting back all of the uncensored stuff into RE DC DS (movies, music, and keep Ultimate's Arranged costumes for Chris, Jill & Rebecca).The list of modified files from the Ultimate hack are as follows:SpoilerPROG2/LOGO.EXEDATA/GWARNIN1.TIMTITLE.PIXTMOJI.TIMModels for Chris, Jill & Rebecca:ENEMY/EM1032.EMDEM1033.EMDEM1035.EMDEM1040.EMDEM1041.EMDEM1043.EMDEM104C.EMDMusic and sound files:All files after SEP00.HSBSOUND/SEP00.HSB -> SEP36.HSBZMOVIE/CAPCOM.STRDM3.STRDM4.STRDM6.STRDMB.STRDMC.STRED1.STRED2.STRED3.STRED4.STRED5.STRED6.STRED7.STRPJ.STRSTFR.STRAnd huge amount of files/rooms from the several "STAGEX" folders (most likely the Arranged mode rooms)[close]I tried modifying the Track 1 BIN file from Ultimate and the official one, putting all of the sounds, movies and 3D models from Ultimate into Dual Shock, but I couldn't find a way to make the modified Track 1 BIN work with any emulator.So with that said, I wanted to ask how would I go about properly doing this?I have already listed the modified files, and the only ones I'd like to port over from the Ultimate DCDS hack into normal DCDS are the new costumes for Jill, Chris and & Rebecca (inside the ENEMY folder), the new music (inside the SOUND folder), and the uncensored FMVs (inside the ZMOVIE folder).If anyone has any suggestions or knows how to properly do this, please let me know!

Quote from: Asaki on February 24, 2021, 10:11:45 PMDoesn't work, there's a copy protection (CRC check?) on the game that must be bypassed.I tried adding the color intro video back into the game once-upon-a-time, but gave up when I was told about it.Obviously someone somewhere knows how to bypass it Just not me.
Quote from: PhOeNiX on February 25, 2021, 03:53:18 PMThe CRC thing is not a general PSX image issue. It is specific to this game. If you first don't remove this CRC check, any modification you apply to the game data will result in a black screen.February 25, 2021, 04:35:24 PM - (Auto Merged - Double Posts are not allowed before 7 days.)This is where the game checks for the CRC in the french version of the game:
Quote from: PhOeNiX on February 26, 2021, 02:42:19 AMIn the main EXE (the SLUS) of the USA version of RE DC you should see the sequenceCode Select Expand0300A614at address 0x5534. That sequence is your bne, just nop it with 00000000.There is one more place where the game checks for a CRC, but it seems the game works already with the change I suggested.In case you need to also change this additional check, in the SLUS of the USA version of RE DC, you should see the sequenceCode Select ExpandF5FF4010at address 0x8100. Replace also this with 00000000.

Quote from: PhOeNiX on February 27, 2021, 04:12:23 AMWhat are you using to replace the files, btw?
Quote from: ShadowOne333 on February 27, 2021, 11:45:41 AMEDIT #2:Failure.While the ISO does boot now into the WARNING screen, whenever I try to import any other file aside from the SLUS one, the game just stays at a black screen when the CAPCOM movie is supposed to play.Doesn't matter if I just import one of the new Chris models, and leave everything else untouched, it always crashes right after the warning screen.
Quote from: PhOeNiX on February 28, 2021, 02:24:47 AMLameguy's GitHub has still old binaries of mkpsxiso that are not compatible with the latest version of isodump uploaded here at rhdn. (These tools have some changes I made and pull requested that fixed some serious bugs. Lameguy merged the changes but did not release new binaries yet).
Quote from: acediez on February 28, 2021, 08:21:30 PMNice, thanks for your work, and for the heads up! I haven't had any issues since I updated to 1.23, and only ever checked the releases page on GitHub. I didn't realize there were newer versions here.
