Yeah, that's a pretty good sign that they aren't. Just wanted to make sure of things, that's all.

Yeah, that error shouldn't be happening. It is because there's a bug in the script. I have fixed it and uploaded it to the page.

That's actually nicely organized, thanks to the header with offset/size information and what kind of data it is (reminds me of the Dreamcast's MLT files somewhat). In these cases where I can get the necessary extraction info from the file itself, I tend to use that than rely on general tools such as seqext and tonext.

Based on that file, I put together an extractor script. I've also written up an example ssfmake.py to work with it so you can see how to deal with multiple tone banks (it's kludgey, but it works). Hopefully it will answer your questions (scroll down to the bottom of the ssfmake.py file to see the scripting).

Also, if you are using ssfmake.py, you don't need to manually set the transfer bits. The script will do that for you.

I now have Phoenix Wright sitting here doing nothing but playing music. Great success!

Also, the subroutine that plays music. Set r1 to something to play a sound code.

Congratulations! When you get done with Phoenix Wright are you going to stick with Capcom games and rip Mega Man ZX/Mega Man ZX Advent?

As soon as it's running in a music player, of course.

And besides, I can just as well plop in another SDAT file and have the Phoenix Wright code play it although I'm sure there'll be incompatibilities at some point.

Also, load this savestate into a generic copy of Desmume to hear the objection music (or whatever's assigned to sound code 4 in the sdat). You'll need the US version to get it to work.

I'm expecting older computers to crumble to pieces with the requirements for the player, so get upgrading, you lazy bastards.

Isn't that Microsoft's motto? :P

perhaps it is

I have now dropped off the face of the internets, and will stay away for either two weeks or forever depending on how the flight goes.

Thanks, that shortened the rip process immensely.
Gonna encode the CDDA tracks as well and put it on Sendspace (feel free to strip those when hosting on the site).

Here are the files: http://www.sendspace.com/file/llpczt

Speaking of Dreamcast, a friend of mine has Sakura Taisen 4 (done by Overworks, so there's a chance it uses sequenced music as well). He says there are no MLT files readily available, would you be interested in tackling the game? I can up the ISO or select files someplace.

Also, one other thing. I've noticed that the some of the Albert Odyssey SEQs have subsongs ('sequence data contains x tracks'). Is this something I should be aware of when ripping music? Didn't see that message pop up with former rips, but those were non psflibs...

I wouldn't mind taking a look at it. Hopefully there are MLT files buried in there somewhere in an uncompressed form. MLT files will begin with the string "SMLT" with other strings such as "SMSB", "SMPB", etc. afterwards in 32 byte intervals.

Yes, it is something you should be aware of. ssfmake will rip all the tracks present in the sequence data in .minissf form if the output filename ends in .ssflib. Otherwise, for a plain .ssf, the track parameter in the script will select which track to be played. The Sega Saturn SEQ format is really a sequence container format and can contain anywhere from 1 to hundreds of tracks.

@Knurek: Now if only some place had Japanese Saturn games available (certain hustling site has full American set, but most of the stuff there is streamed)...

underground-gamer? got invites if you need them.
by Knurek at 2:50 PM EST on December 21, 2007
Well, I've been banned there two times already. The place hates my ISP (I can download fine, uploading for ratio isn't possible).

Still, thanks for the thought.

// Edit

Kingshriek, the Albert Odyssey link is dead. :)

Also, one other thing. Would you consider writing an automated PSF timer as well (for the sets using the standard driver?). SEQ/VAB and CSL is rather well documented. There's PGConv (http://www.tukinami.com/) that can conver them to MIDI, but that doesn't help with more than one loop.

Would be pretty nice, there are over 150 untimed sets (mostly using standard drivers) which got close to no chance of seeing the timing data.
And the existing timed sets do need a recheck from time to time as well.
