@datschge Sorry I dont know which one either. I happened to find it on 2ch, he said the key was the same as the key in the game Hortensia Saga which i also found in the same thread

@earise - Thanks, that's good info nonetheless. Hortensia Saga appears to be a hybrid app as well so the key may actually be shared by all those hybrid apps, likely due to using the same framework.
Edit: Actually both are by the same developer, f4samurai.

Heads up, the latest vgmstream autodetects known keys so shouldn't need .hcakey anymore in many cases.

@bnnm - That's great. What is it based on though, do you collect and include the keys right in vgmstream?
Edit: Never mind, just saw you did answer that already in the vgmstream thread.

@chrrox - What's the game (ideally its android id)? With only the encrypted files nobody has the actual data needed to look for the key.

@datschge its this game

What's your method for testing each key?

In VGAudio, I unpack a few frames without decoding the entire frame, and if there are an arbitrary number (10 ATM) of frames that unpack successfully, the key's marked as valid.

@furrybob - vgmstream's HCA decoder will (AFAIK) always decode even with an invalid key, but I observed there would be a bunch of clipped samples (0x8000/0x7FFF).

So for each key I just decode frames (max ~100) until a number of non-blank samples (~10*1024) and see how many clipped. The key with lowest number gets picked.

Not super great but seems fast enough and worked with all my files. Usually the correct key gets 0 clips and gets immediatedly selected. I guess a wrong key could still get 0 clips in the first frames so the values can be adjusted though.

(see here).

I tried to check VGAudio for inspiration but the whole ReadSpectralCoefficients was way beyond me, so I just devised this funny thing.

Also, it doesn't matter to the decoder if it unpacks successfully or not, since the checksum verification happens before the decryption occurs.
