MGS1 is pretty much my favorite game of all time, and my favorite soundtrack of all time.

As for the files that didn't play, I tried them with foo_psf and they did play, albeit broken due to the way foo_psf reads these files. So, looks like it's C. They were the Rex's Lair / Genola tracks + dupes of other tracks, so nothing new there. Seeing as Rex's Lair extracts fine from SLPM-86111, it's no issue.

In terms of VR Missions, there are technically 3 builds. NTSC-J: Integral, NTSC: VR Missions, PAL: Special Missions.

Integral has PocketStation support, plus a requirement to check saves from MGS1 to unlock the Ninja missions.

VR Missions dropped PocketStation support, and is standalone so Ninja missions have an alternate method for unlocking.

Special Missions requires the MGS1 discs, it's really strange. It loads voices from the MGS disc into memory, and then plays the rest on the Special Missions disc. So you need to disc swap in order to play.

Anyway, given the way software builds work, I'm always curious to dig into different releases in case someone forgot to remove some unused tracks.

I also do know some Python, so this is pretty convenient for me. Thank you for sharing your kit! I am pretty busy this weekend, but when I get to playing around with it, I will post my results here.

As for the Encounter track, if you were up to fiddling with it and seeing if it is just fading sub-tracks in or out, that would be awesome. I'm not super picky, so I don't need the transition.

Oh, hah, it seems I don't even have to do the timing myself for the evasion mode. There's already some delay after triggering it.

Viopsf has been updated and now supports mgs: https://ux.getuploader.com/foobar2000/download/195

That's terrific. Even the Integral tracks that wouldn't play in Mednafen works! Thanks for sharing the news, Kirishima.

@Nisto
According to viopsf author (anonymous), it seems to be a problem of HLE BIOS.
HLE BIOS code has changed significantly, so PSF of other games may be affected.
There seems to be no problem with MGS PSFs you made.

@mogikihei

All the psf's that I have and tested so far haven't had anything broken so far, and that includes some hacked up Final Fantasy 6 psf's I made a long time ago as a test.

I will post here if I come across something in the future.

@mogikihei good to know that there's nothing broken in my code. Thank you once again for relaying the information. I'll check some other PSFs for errors as well.


EDIT: While it's not viopsf(1), I noticed viopsf2 doesn't play back the PSF2s from Silent Hill 2 properly. The note delays/releases are a bit too short. This is especially noticeable in Ordinary Vanity (BGM50000) and Laura Plays The Piano (BGM50016). It would be great if the developer could have a look at it.

I was contemplating running foo_psf alongside viopsf1, but unfortunately foo_psf doesn't allow disabling PSF1 support, so there would probably be a conflict.
