Look Ma, I'm not dead!
« on: September 19, 2007, 08:41pm »
Yes, I've been summoned from the netherworld by Midnight Curse, who has been busy convincing me that you lot sorely miss me.

Now, feeling like the ungrateful bastard that I am, I really want someone to get me up to speed on the following three questions:

1. Has there been any success in getting the X360 DLC data dump to work from? If so, have I missed the fun of working with those?

2. Has anyone managed to beat that dreadful extra-soundset problem I've been frustrated about badly enough to quit this here modding altogether?

3. Has anyone invented a way of decoding the X360 audio format? Anyone?

P.S. Oh, yeah, almost forgot - have they managed to invent better-tasting Pepsi Light yet? Just wondering.

Hey, long time no... chat... :laugh:

1. Yes, but the models (skins, boltons, etc) don't work... The game CTD when those are used. Icons and textures work fine though. I think all the XMLB/ENGB files (powerstyles, talents, etc) can be used as well.

2. I don't think so... :(

3. I don't think "we" got these files...

Waaait, wait, wait. You mean that someone out there has actually dumped the DLC data? Where would I go to get that, I only have the data dump of the vanilla X360 version (and believe you me, downloading 8 gigs worth of a game you don't even have anything to run on was no picnic)?

Yeah, thanks a bunch. Now all that's left is to reinstall MUA, XML2 and find where did I stash the seven DVD-Rs with all the data dumps I've had :)

Glad to know I'm welcome :)

I'm currently setting up shop to resume my activities. Probably gonna go procrastinate more about the file formats as this seems to be what's the hardest part around here - editing official models and making brand-new soundsets. Maybe rewrite my old format guides from their blogtastic non-linear multi-layered craporama into full-fledged guides with piccurs and stuff.

If anybody wanted to find out some secrets of my trade but was screwed when I was gone, go ahead, PM me.

Times two. I've had an e-mail tip-off that one of you broke through what I've been gnashing my teeth at since day one - the sound hash thingamajigs - and that, coupled with my buying a PSP a month ago, kinda drove me to my return. First to pick up the Next-Gen mod for the PSP. And then to check out the news. And... well, then my ADHD acted up. So... Hi?
