You mean editing the maps from the CD-ROM to rip the tiles? I and Nukey played a little with that concept for Duke 64. But the PMPs can be troublesome, so it would require doing it for each existing level, if that's really possible...

Now that you know the location of the data in memory, couldn't you just change the tile number of a sprite you know is on screen directly without having to find different maps containing all the tiles?


It's possible. The tool Oasiz used allowed us to already inject data to the RAM (to change levels in our case).

The problem is that the sprite block of data in the RAM is least consistent in-game, plus something seems to push the data around when you enter the game, although so far it's in a consistent location. But it's still doable.

Notes:
E1L9 music: I cheated to go to that level.
Track 44 is the E1L2 song, track 46 is the bar music, and track 45 is both tracks "mixed", intended to make a "transition" effect AFAIK.
There's 3 tracks for the minsitry of fear's song, for the transition effect.
I wonder if these effects are possible to do in eduke32... probably not.
Track52 (metalichorrific1) unused ?

BTW, will you guys use ogg or FLAC for this ?

Amon Amarth - Live For The Kill | Disturbed - Torn | In Flames - Dead Eternity | Scar Symmetry - Deviate From The Norm | Throwdown - Godspeed

Coming soon to a synthesis build near you:

Quote

Introduce audiolib support for PlayStation CD-XA audio, a simple ADPCM format.

It's functional, but due to the odd 37.8 KHz nature of the format, I will need to add a resampler to the audiolib to prevent the aliasing artifacts that occur at present. I also hear clicks/pops every so often, but I do not know if a resampler would fix these as well or if they are a separate problem.

Note that you cannot directly use the four XA files on the Total Meltdown disc because they each contain eight songs. They would need to be split using a utility I wrote that is outside the scope of this SVN.

No, in Eduke32 it restarts the song from the beggining.

Apparently the PSX didn't support high-quality audio for ambience sound, so they created an ugly hack. My plan so far was to convert the SEs 40 into MUSICANDSFX.

This is a mapping of E4L6 background music:

And this would be the result with the code I have in mind:

I don't think the three sprites will all play in sync.

How not? Does MUSICANDSFX music starts only when you are in the radius?

Edit: Fuuuuck. Alternatively, you could add the already requested feature to adjust music volume. It would do the job, since E1L2 and E3L1 only have one epicenter...

Edit: Though I could make the MUSICANDSFX jump from one place to another. Hmm... I suppose it wouldn't cause desync if I change the coordinates of an otherwise ineffective effector.

Almost done with this code, the result is very close to my prediction, but E4L6 sync is a problem...

What an overly-complicated CON code can't do.

I did the test drive, and despite there being three individual sounds playing, it's hardly noticeable and the background music played nicely.

XA audio support is in. I would not recommend using it yet because you will hear aliasing artifacts above 18.9 KHz. ASS needs a better resampler.

The "xasplit" utility I mention can be found here: http://hendricks266....rxa2wav_h266.7z

When the feature is working better, I will update my PSX music pack to use the XA files directly, and in turn they will be used in this mod.

Glad to see this episode come into fruition! :(

Hey, I have both Alien Rendezvous and Faces of Death with the exit done, I could upload them both for yall if yall want to take a look.

I also have Duke Royale but it's incomplete, I have it worked all the way to the pawn shop which is nearly done, however, the only things missing is the bar area and the blowout building with the exit.

EDIT: Are yall planning on adding the new Duke quotes from the PSX version as well?

Cool! You guys are awesome! I have been waiting so long to see this on PC! :D

Will they be for those levels only? Or will Duke be able to say them in all the other levels as well? And also, will these levels have multiplayer compatibility?

This mod will work with all episodes, but what do you mean by multiplayer compatibility? The 7 new levels are all broken with multiplayer spawns, but the other levels remain the same.

I can guarantee it will have pretty much everything from the PSX... And I don't think they need your maps because they don't need ones done by hand which will not be perfect 1:1 copies.

@Fox I don't think he understands English very well, he still thinks we have the Shadow Warrior beta and other old Betas.

Eehhh, I call it Lite exactly because it won't have all assets. =P It's basically new maps and the exclusive content. I am not going to replace all the art and sounds which is different in the PSX because it would be too much work.

All the art? Last time I checked it used all the same art apart from the new enemies and Plug and Prey episode...
What would be the point in replacing the pc version of a art tile with the PSX counterpart? Is their a major difference between them?

I'm actually glad to hear that, I've tried many times in an attempt to remake the episode myself but failed to do so because either I was unimpressed by my work or that I lost the motivation to do them. I would like to see this as close and as accurate as these guys can possibly get it. So far as I can tell from the images these guys are doing a hell of a job. :D

So thats why you called it "lite". I agree with this, it's pointless to convert ALL the PSX versions of the original textures, art and enemies that are used on the PC. Simply using the new textures, art and enemies from the PSX version in conjunction with the originals is good enough, besides it's too much unnecessary work for you guys.

It would also require some new grayscale types for tint DEF command.
