There are sd_call.irx in Genso Suikoden III and IV, is this a sound driver? (There is TD/HD/BD character in this file)

Genso Suikoden III files
Genso Suikoden III did not work, The song number is not written on 0x18 of .TD file(This file contains several songs).

Not quite - libsmf2.irx contains the driver (library), while sd_call.irx handles RPC function calls (more high-level functions). [EDIT: you are right actually, in GS3 it seems the driver is in the same file as the RPC request function; in GS4 they are divided]

I gave it a look, and indeed, it doesn't seem to work either. Too bad.

I would post my contribution on the thread, but I haven't figured out how to time these .minipsf2

The old fashioned way: By listening to them and timing them manually.

@MusashiAA: to time xSF files, you add a length tag. PSFPoint is probably the tool most people use for tagging (VGMToolbox may also have a GUI front-end, I forget). Or, if you're equally comfortable with a hex editor, tags are really just a list of x=y values separated by newline (ASCII 0x0A) characters (after "[TAG]" at the end of the file). The format for the length tag is described here. But as kode54 says, there's no magic button for automatically calculating times in this case. Although, the official OST, if available, is likely a good reference, and should be used if it makes sense.

Yeah, I realized. But...


My problem seems to be that the files are .minipsf2, NOT .psf2. VGMToolbox does have a PSF2 timer, but it doesn't seem to work in the intended way? All I get is a folder with a .smd file, a .swd file, and a .ini file, with VGMToolbox saying there was some sort of error processing the .minipsf2 file.

I recall being able to time .psf files before (a little), it seemed like a pretty automated process, but at least those were straight .psf files: I guess I'd need the .minipsf2 files here to be straight up .psf2 files?

I don't think it should have any problems dealing with minipsf2 sets. The tool in VGMToolbox indeed appears to be an automatic timer. My guess is that it expects a CSL (Component Sound Library) rip, where the sequence format would be .SQ (rather than .SMD). So obviously that won't work, and it's probably why you're getting those errors. You're simply gonna have to tag them manually, one by one, via PSFPoint or some other tool of your choice (it's a pain, I know).

Yeah the timer in VGMToolbox expects a CSL rip.
