Extracting SPC's from SFC/SNES ROMs by Infamous Lunchbox at 3:50 AM EST on February 2, 2020
I know this is probably a dumb question, but I've been having issues trying to find good SPC extraction tools. I have tried SPCTool, but it keeps crashing in DOSBox, maybe I'm doing it wrong? I know you can save SPC's as they play in game through emulator, but is there a better way to extract SPC's from the ROMs? If there is no option for a music test this can be very tricky.

I am not great at disassembling code, and picking them out individually, but I can learn if necessary.

In particular I'm looking for the SPC's from Kachou Shima Kousaku (Super Business Adventure) from the Super Famicom (not the DS game to be clear). I can't seem to find in any database. There's a few others that I can't find SPC rips from that I would like to preserve by recording from hardware (Firebrand modded SNES). Thanks.

SPCs are just an emulator savestate prepared with music only, they don't exist inside ROMs and are an artificial format.

Without a music test your best bet is to fiddle with the emulator's cheat engine. With some luck you can find and patch a value that controls the scene BGM, probably there are still some tutorials out there.
