01 Yellowcard - Lights And Sounds how do I change this to say 01 band - song

Thanks for the support,


Unless someone makes a tool, you'll have use a hex editor, as the names for the tracks in burnout 3/revenge are not contained within xwb's, nor are they in any xsb's.

I found the file where they're all contained a while ago, can't remember the name of the file/extension though, you'll just have to have a scout around -> the file was less than 100kb (I think).

Also, the only way to change names with EkszBox-ABX is by putting a name in the rename files textbox, clicking the list to change individual names is not yet functional.
This doesn't change the names contained within xwb's/xsb's however, just the names of the extracted files.

QUOTE

You know the list which pops up in programs (B button click), when you've highlighted a game.
What if there was a play music item on this, which loaded all tracks contained in the audio banks pertaining to a game into a playlist & then played them.

We should be able to do this without too many issues, I think.

(I'm not sure if the XBMC authors want features like this though).


sounds like a great idea would probably have to build a database to where all the audio files are of each game or else have some sort of automatic file search *.xwb,etc or something to that measure.

QUOTE

Sounds good, I have all the specs on the formats which my app supports (20 atm).
If you gave me some info on XBMC coding conventions/practices maybe we could then collaborate on this endevour.


did you get my forum msg if not i can resend it to youre email address ?

Didn't include it as I wanted to keep the compressed filesize to <1MB.
However, I just e-mailed it to xbox scene, so hopefully they will put it in the tutorial section.
I'll put a link to it here, if/when I get one.
If you have any constructive comments regarding the guide/tutorial - I want to hear them.

Sorry to say that my tut was never put up on XS for whatever reason.

Here is a link to someone else's which may help you out for now.

http://wiki.xentax.c...ndex.php/DGTEFF


I will include my tut in the next ver as long as I can get the filesize down.



Props.

I would like to point out that some XBE's are compatible.

Keep up the good work Ekszbox.

There should not be audio data in any xbe's, headers/audio file signatures are probably all that my app will find & extract.

Support to extract audio from Mashed rws's should happen shortly.

Audio swap support will probably not happen very soon though- due to there being so many very different rws types (I may approach it later on).


Thanks for the interest/support.
