- The Grand Infinite Undiscovery Renaming Project by SquareTex at 4:16 PM EDT on September 12, 2018
- When I realized that the encoding for tri-Ace's Xbox360 projects had been cracked, I was overjoyed. Having Infinite Undiscovery and Star Ocean: The Last Hope in a looping format was a delight.
There were only two "disappointments", and both were minor. First, the audio files were in their dry, data-type names from the game files and not matching the OST names and sequencing. But you know what? That's okay! The important thing is to get the music out quickly, and not hold it up because the tracks have to be in order.
...and besides, it gives me a fun project to do. ;)
The other was a bit more unfortunate. For some reason, the file related to the OST's "Another Challenge" was missing. I'm not sure if the extraction process had overlooked it, but it's one of my favorites...the one time in the soundtrack that Motoi Sakuraba broke the "no band instruments"constraint he used here and on Trusty Bell: Eternal Sonata. Kinda reminds me of Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria, which is quite delicious. :D
So yeah, I've fixed those things. After doing a side-by-side, I made a batch file that renames all the files into the OST order. I also took "Another Challenge" and LOGG-ified it, so that it finally had a place of honor among its kin.
One curious thing revealed was that the audio file "BGM_78_RAIN_OF_MOON_B.genh" seems to have no equivalent on the OST. A shame, as it's a rather haunting piano piece. So it's become a "999 Unknown".
Alright, I've linked the 7z with the BAT file and looped tune in the link below. I know the BAT works in Windows 10, but not if the syntax is similar if you run it in a Linux command shell.
p.s. I think I might give SO4 the same treatment at some point.
p.p.s ...oh yeah, Dirge of Cerberus will REALLY need the renaming love. ;)

- Just in case, backup the originals! I wouldn't want you to have to re-download the entire set if the process goes bonkers! <:D
