Chrono Trigger






Download:http://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php?topic=23115.0

Description: Not only does this hack replace all of the in-game music with high quality orchestrated versions, it also supports all of the anime cutscenes from the PSX version.  Work is still ongoing to improve the video quality, as well as to fix any remaining bugs in the audio code, but a final release should be available eventually.

Audio Notes: This hack originally used the Chrono Trigger Symphony album by Blake Robinson.  This 3-part album is not free, but is available for purchase here.  Upon purchase, the FLAC files can be converted to MSU-1 .pcm files using this tool and this config file.  See the usage instructions provided below.

An alternative audio pack has been graciously provided for free by Youtube user Dracula9AntiChapel, and it can be downloaded here:

Sorry Smile
I don´t understand anything.- in relation to tranform the flac into pcm files.

I have downloaded the msupcm.exe but this is closing immediately, when i open it.
(I have win 8.1 64 Prof)
What is to do with the config file? Its a browser tab - not a file ( i dont have any skills in such things, and my english is weak)

- i found this on this webpage:
But where can i find the decode_flac and create_pcm.bat ?
___________________________________________________
= Creating the .pcm =
=====================
First get Chrono Symphony album in FLAC format (http://www.thechronosymphony.com/). Extract them all to a folder.
Run decode_flac to convert FLAC files to WAV files
Use create_pcm.bat to create the .pcm from WAV files.

i guess u have to create manifest.bml..it's not on the files... u]
___________________________________________________

I would be so grateful when you can help me Smile

It's more than likely the .bat file is looking for files where there are none, or the FLAC files aren't named the way they should be so the .bat file can find them.

The .bat files are the old way of doing it, ignore instructions regarding those. Download the config file into the same folder as msupcm.exe, then just drag-and-drop it onto the exe to begin conversion.

with right click i saved the config file and get a file named this:
chrono_symphony.json

But when i drag-and-drop a wav file on msupcm.exe a cmd window opend and is closing immediately - and no file is created. Nothing is happend...

Than i tried it with wav2msu.exe. But the same result. It´s so fast, that i can´t read what is written in the cmd window

PS.: I could made a screenshot of the cmd

Can you open the .json file in a text editor and copy the first couple of lines here to confirm the contents?

Edit: The problem is your folder structure. Each of the 3 albums was supposed to be in a separate folder. Look at the "file" lines inside the .json file to see what folder/file names it's expecting.

Thanks qwertymodo - with the wav2msu.exe it worked. With msupcm.exe it did not. But i get the .pcm, but not with start the exe. I had to drag-and-drop every single file and get the file with the original name as .pcm.

It seems i have to rename every single .pcm file Sad
I can see the order from the .json file, but which is the exactly name of the file?

And what is with the msu file?

Thank you for everything - my english is not the best so its hard for me, too invest the threads...

The way you did it, wav2msu will not work correctly. Yes, you'll get .pcm files, but they won't loop correctly and the volume will be wrong. You need to put the flac files into the folders specified in the json file, then drag-and-drop the json file onto msupcm.exe. When I get a chance, I really need to just record a full video of the process... :/

Ok, I finally just went ahead and made a video because I'm too lazy to type up instructions. See the post above in this thread (or just click here: http://www.zeldix.net/t808-chrono-trigger#21321 )
