thanks for the info on the tool. every time i try to convert wav 2 pcm it gives me one pcm file, and a basically empty header file. any idea whats up with that? can you also explain the change it needed? was it just hex to decimal? i also think a binary file would probably work better but i've definatly not seen any examples using one.
Does anyone have any experience with the music in Shining the Holy Ark or Grandia? I just bought both of them, they will probably arrive sometime next week. I've already played STHA, and I don't recall it having any sort of handy sound test, so recording it off the system would be a pain. So, I am hoping I can convert/rip the music directly from the disc.
Grandia uses ADX streams packed into a massive .STZ file.
There is a Saturn utility made by some Japanese dude called CINEPAK.EXE that can open and convert .ADX, .CPK, .CAK (Cinepak video with ADX audio), .CAX (packed .CAK files) and .SZT (packed .ADX files).
That app kicks butt, since it can even convert Burning Rangers' and Lunar 2's videos to .AVI perfectly, with audio.
Sweet, I just got them in the mail. Thanks for the info, I'm busy converting away now. You're right, this app is excellent! If only I knew what those options did, they probably arent necessary for my purposes, but it bugs me a bit.
I don't suppose anyone knows anything about the audio in Shining the Holy Ark? What are .mdx / .mdt files?
