Code:
Latest - 20210614:
------------------
- Fixed Raging Demon while "Round X"

20210425:
---------
- KO circle more frames
- Z phase 2 more frames
- All data from moveset, hitboxes and AI are transferred uncompressed to MSU file
for faster loading before Z phase 2
- Very good speed tweaks, 13 vlines at double frames

Everything else seems OK for the time being but I've not had a chance to properly test it.

My instructions was simple and clear. You did different things.

You're correct, I did do different things and the reason was that I had already tried the steps you suggested as this was the 2nd time you had suggested these steps and they had no result as there's dependencies in audio tweaks.asm that's required elsewhere, so it will always fail when trying to compile the asm files into the rom.

The method I've used, gets around this by just telling ASAR to ignore a few lines of code but it still calls Audio tweaks.asm so the dependencies are met.

it's not a very clean way to do it and it's still not 100% correct as the Capcom sample is running too fast but I'm happy enough that it's as close to 100% as I'll be able to get as the into music and stage samples are here. It is also mostly untested from my point of view so this method could create numerous bugs but I won't know that till I get time to test it.

Thank you so much for this. Keep up the amazing work here, this is astounding what you've been able to accomplish.

For the rest of the questions either are already answered or questions have logic errors.
Hello gizaha, thanks for your great patch.
I also wanted, if possible, to have just a patch that applies all your great game fixes and revision but without the hassle of the new music.
I tried to follow your instructions, but I allways end with a rom without music.
I post you what I did in the main.sm file


is this correct ?
do I need some other file to run the game with his original snes audio or the patched room is enough?
thank you very much

If the transition sequences between combats are skipped, the music doesn’t stops when should sound another, and when finally it ends, then sounds the next song.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khiZk-WEu4s


P.D: The problem of the sound of the hits, that sometimes sounds, and sometimes not, still is present.

I don’t see nothing more relevant for now.


@Gizaha Are you planning to add more frame animations to the characters?, Do you need some kind of help to do it?.

I noticed an audio glitch that is difficult to replicate, but it has happened to me twice now. On BSNES (I tried to replicate it on Snes9x, but couldn't), there's a glitch which causes a spike just before the announcer says "Round...". Here's a video...

https://mega.nz/file/V7ZhDAIY#s1j61JuXFMeJ8WhPsOy5noHu4KQNsJw0LPyaytrWCUI

The first fight seems to always be normal. It tends to happen from the second fight onward.

The issue with the "select" FX playing after confirming an option on the title screen is still present, but I know you're aware of that.

I don't support a Frankenstein patch with some things enabled and some closed. I overwrite some somples like D6 with other data. Read all the codes and fix all the problems.

@Relikk I know for the sound spike, i didn't really try to fix it.
For the title screen select FX bug, it no longer exists for me. Use bsnes debugger and send me a save state.
And remember to always patch a clean rom and NOT to use savestates (because they keep the old spc program, it's uploading only at boot)

Your work is great again, is it possible to edit characters sprites in order to look larger on screen?, how about like adding missing frames of animation?. Now the crazy part. is it possible for you to work alongside other hackers (or alone) to make new arcade ports to Snes from scratch in order to make them as arcade perfect as possible?. Perhaps i'm dreaming to much and i really value your work so far and i thank you for it, but i'm kinda sick of seeing small characters on screen. That Gundam game was an eye opener.

Hello Relikk, I'm new here, I must say that I enjoyed your pack with the original soundtrack from the SNES port, it stays the way I always imagined it should be in 1996, with the music without pause between rounds. Today I keep a hack with the CPS II soundtrack and another with the original, thank you very much for that. Would it be possible to do the same with the Super Street Fighter II soundtrack?

Sure. I'd only need to do the stage tracks as the game has SPC fallback for the rest.

@gizaha: would you like to have a look at "unholy night" and see if some of the problems in the game can be fixed?
I can't really pinpoint what the problems are or why they appear.
Obviously the game has issues with running fluently (compared to "fatal fury special" to name a good and similar game by the same publisher).
If it simply is a case of bad programming or if the game simply is stuffed with too much stuff and the system can't handle it.
Maybe you could have a look at it and make an educated guess, even if you don't plan on doing anything.
It would be interesting to hear an opinion on the game why it behaves the way it does
by someone with your deep understanding of (code and) fighting games
If you haven't looked at it yet and have the time
Thx Smile

Hi gizaha. Is one of your final goals to restore the censored backgrounds which are present in the JAP version, or would that be impossible due to the SDD-1 compression?

Found some examples over at the RH forums:

SODOM is written on the license plate and above it in hiragana.
Street Fighter Alpha 2 - Page 5 ZmqEYJb

"KILL YOU" is a graffiti on the wall.
Street Fighter Alpha 2 - Page 5 WQSXJpc

Background people at the urinals.

The stall opens when you use a super move to reveal a person using it.

I already did the Sodom background (it will be at the next patch version) but i did not knew about the other three, i thought that Nintendo cencored the word "kill" and the peeing at all regions. Thanks for noticing.

Was playing this on SD2SNES and encountered a freeze after beating Sagat with Rose. I'll record another play through and see if I can make it happen again. I was playing normally and then paused the game at the start of sagat's stage for about 30 seconds, then started playing again. Went to a black screen after beating him with the music still playing. I was able to use the soft reset command to go back to the title. Of note, I did use LunaIPS to patch the game and am playing on the newest patch, patched to a fresh copy of the game.

I repatched the game used the recommended patcher.
Here's a clip of it crashing while fighting chun li. https://clips.twitch.tv/TalentedDeadChipmunkTooSpicy-xTIpuI1YYUed6uIW

Here's one more, https://clips.twitch.tv/SpotlessRockyReubenRuleFive-rWh2UxCiAxODI5Hz

This one stung. I finally had enough perfects to fight shin akuma and the game reset back to the license screen and froze on the second screen. https://clips.twitch.tv/LittleDirtySquirrelKappaClaus-gUkbedmlR9aKyOXO

I did finally get to shin akuma in regular play and he whooped up on me haha. Instant dizzy recovery on him... oof.

Anybody who makes a bug report, please be advised to always  give a brief description containing the system (if it is sd2snes, whether it can be reproduced on emu, and if yes, possibly with a savestate), and what to do to trigger the bug. Since nobody else reported this bug yet, I'd assume it is sd2snes only... Worse, many here also play on sd2snes and didn't encounter it. So there's also the chance that it is your setup somehow since you ran in it frequently (I assume this since you posted some videos).

Anybody else with a sd2snes encountered this?

I just finished here with Rose too,
I had no problem (I played on SD2SNES)
I advise turning off all the functions of the SD2SNES / FXPAK PRO for testing, leave it as a normal cartridge, without any of the active functions (in-game hook, reset for menu and etc., leave everything OFF)
note that the patch is in the correct rom,
Street Fighter Alpha 2 (USA) .sfc - CRC32: 9C59DDFF - no header,
after patch: CRC32: 85A4BE94

I have sd2snes, so i can check it if needed.
Once again:
Use bsnes, when you found a bug, you can press the rewind key in order to capture it. Then you save state in the best position. I insist at bsnes because you can rewind, otherwise you missed it. Then sent me the save state, i fix it in a minute.

Bsnes because i use bsnes debugger to fix it.
