PSF builder python script ? by Squaresoft74 at 10:54 PM EDT on September 12, 2018
Hello,
This one is mainly for Nisto if ever willing to help.

Could you make/share a python script that would automatically build PSF files by simply dropping a folder that would contain a "Driver.exe" , Bgmxxx.seq, Bgmxxx.vh and Bgmxxx.vb files.

Something similar to your mkpsf.py from your mgs_psfkit.

That would be very appreciated and a huge time saver since i'm currently assembling everything via PSFLab and that is a long, repetitive and boring process.

Many thanks.

Can you upload some files? I also need the VH/VB/SEQ addresses.

Sure here you go:
http://rgho.st/private/74rKDSWxP/ba667cd75e64740f49984e85eeac5bf4

0x80100000 (SEQ)
0x80120000 (VAB Header)
0x80140000 (VAB Body)

Maybe you could make this section adjustable for other drivers that would use different import addresses ?

It's a proper rip of Pandemonium! using a recycled pQES driver that i patched to match the game's original reverb settings.
(I used no$psx's SPU I/O Map to get the values).

I saw someone attempted to rip that game, using VGMToolbox i guess, but it's not good at all:
http://psf.joshw.info/p/Pandemonium!%20[Magical%20Hoppers]%20(1996-10-31)%20(Toys%20For%20Bob)%20(Crystal%20Dynamics).7z

You might notice that .seq files have a bit of extra (useless) data at their ends that i left on purpose because PSFLab won't properly import them if they're not 32bits multiple in size (Correct me if i'm using the wrong definition, i'm no expert).
Doesn't seem to affect playback but it's just not "clean" to me.

Would be neat if your script could bypass this "requirement" since i like to have proper raw files extracted.

Thank you for your help.

Let me know if it needs any improvements.

Huge thanks for this script Nisto !
It works perfectly with everything i tried so far.

It will definitely make things faster for my PSF ripping needs and bring back motivation to make some more. :)

Got any mail address where i can contact you ?
