I post code snips in case other hacker comes around someday and wonders wth got changed. ;)


Summary:
Game loads full sound file into memory. For some of them (BGM), exe uses fixed size values when to cutoff and restart music. IDK why they did this but it prevents larger streams from being used (OST CD quality).


Chose to use method 02 - 2 GB max BGM playback size
Code: Select all
mov eax, 7FFFFFFFh
mov [edi+10],eax



Sample re3.exe mod here (5 byte change vs usa restoration exe)

edit: Throw in any 44100+ replacement waves you want. The MAINxx ones should play fully and auto-restart.

edit2: Don't have a force feedback gamepad. So I won't be able to analyze or try porting ffb.

Did Capcom also split resources for RE1 or RE2 like they did with RE3 - certain ports have better sounds, models, animations, OST replacement, bugfix, ..?
(ignoring remaster or remakes)


RE3 PC restoration project is a big plus, especially in audio department. Surprised how much more superb the quality is now.

That's a very good step forward, thank you very much! As I can see for now, all game music playing in 44100 in full length. Now I can start preparing all my 44100 music sources with 1411 kb\s bitrate instead current 22050 and 705 kb\s, and perhaps I have to change my sound system... But looks like now something wrong with some MAIN non-music sounds, like city sounds, moans, etc.. For example, even standard track MAIN1E.wav now playing with little stuck in beginning of every loop cycle. You can hear that track after you exit from Warehouse - it's a zombie moans and fly city sounds, playing in full length but now with stuck.

upd: Looks like all music and sound from DATA_A now playing with little stuck after loop.

Yes, the similar situation with RE1 and RE2: a lot of high quality music material and annoying restrictions.
But situation with polygons in RE1-2 much better then in RE3, there's no problems with that, with scaling it looks perfect.

Don't have a headset at this place but I'll try looking into it or alternate.

Did some logging tests at new game starting scene. This is a tricky problem. Game does something like this:

stream 1 = OTHER_01.wav = fire
stream 2 = SBB_33.wav = bgm (urgent tempo)

On first play, it goes from 0 - end. Okay.

On next loop, game does not play at 0 start but uses a new loop system
s1 = 18500 bytes - new cutoff
s2 = 615424 bytes - new cutoff

I'm going to look for how repeat loop works and hopefully modify it to behave like 1st play.

Hacked re3 + mercs to loop from 0 position. Logs suggest it replays entire file now. Please try this build.

Located motor function in Bio3 sourcenext. This is not something I can backport. It would take someone clever and understands force feedback to maneuver a hack into place.


Code: Select all
BIOHAZARD(R) 3 PC.exe


motor = 1
00411843 - 8A 8E 35140000        - mov cl,[esi+00001435]

eax, edx = 8-bit motor values
0041184D - 8B 8E 28140000        - mov ecx,[esi+00001428]
00411853 - 8A 00                 - mov al,[eax]
00411855 - 8A 12                 - mov dl,[edx]
00411857 - 50                    - push eax
00411858 - 8B 31                 - mov esi,[ecx]

Ok, now it's finally working properly, I hope, but only with this values:

Code: Select all
offset 257AB: BA00000000
offset 257B3: B800000000

With this values sound playing smoothly, without lagging.
This game should use some music loop pointers from .RDT (room files) which can control sound playing, but in PC version they act only for two position anyway: start and finish playback. That's why many tracks working not like it should be. Some tracks not playing at all, like on graveyard in cut-scene with Nikolai.

No, I was wrong. Game using loop pointers in .WAV tracks in some places and cut-scenes. In cable car for example, when it start moving, wheel sound should repeat one section in the end of the track, now instead of this, game repeating whole track from the start.

RhymeKidder, Is it possible to make this game play 44100 tracks without sound lag, but with built in loop pointers function?

Code: Select all
https://anon=files.com/file/bbd560accca7c16709314aa85fcaccae


Use untouched Restoration v0.7 exes.
Place music tool in DATA_A/SOUND folder.

Run music_tool.exe
- Original adpcm files are left alone and should work correctly as-is. Ambient files keep original loop spots.
- Non-adpcm files are adjusted in bgm table @ offset 114a60 (both exes)
- Uses smooth looping technique (0 size) found by kalash49 when possible (less auto-repeat delay)
- Fixes sbb_06_0 to auto-loop now (untested)


This is mostly the best of my ability atm to choose between smooth play - 44100 - original loop points depending on track requirements.

If you need to adjust loop points for better repeats, you'll have to do it by hand. I can't help much here.


Code: Select all
Table @ 114a60

Each room holds 3 tracks x 16 bytes
00 = name ptr  [ffffffff = stop]
04 = ?
06 = loop flag (1 = repeat)
08 = loop offset (bytes after wave start)
0c = track size (0 = auto-dsound looping)


150 = main07      [save room music]
2d0 = main0f_0      [tram] [** mid-loop]
4e0 = main1a      [clocktower]

870 = main2d      [chapel]
8a0 = other1      [fire ambience 2]
8d0 = other1      [fire ambience 2]
900 = main30_0      [railgun charge] [** mid-loop]

a80 = main38      [Options screen music]   
db0 = other1      [fire ambience 2]

f60 = sbb_33      [intro music]
1290 = sbb_3d      [machine] [** mid-loop]
1380 = main14      [fire ambiance]

1500 = sbb_06_0   [**] [** fix looping]
17d0 = sbb_3a      [terror music 2]
1b30 = sbb_38_1   [?] [** mid-loop]

RhymeKidder, big thanks to you for everything you've done. That's a very advanced method for tuning loop points. But can you explain more simply, if it's possible, how to identify each .wav track in wav table, or in your source code, or by using hex editor? How to find these values like 150 = main07, and where I should search them? Cause I can't use debug tools. Thank you.

Re: Resident Evil 3: Restoration Project (PC, PSX) (Release)

Once again kalash49, :thanks: for replying, looks like the FMV issue described is exclusive to the EIDOS/EMEA/EU version, so no probs here. But alas I've conjured a few more annoyances (you see what I did there :D ) that could benefit the endeavour if elbow-greased:
1. Will the effort be put into including features that are console-exclusive into this mod (ex. N64 non-tank controls and DC costumes, which seem to be an upgrade of the pre-existing along with the known two additions)?
2. Also is the timing of the subtitles in the outro sequence (between the final FMV and the credits) be rectified? It is known to have bothered some and would certainly be one of the highlights if managed...
3. And lastly, it's a minor thing but also being a nuisance, will the graphics engine be modded to implement "bleeding" as a fade effect during cutscene/inventory/ other transitions instead of the usual (as in further increasing the experience in being more "PS1-like")?
Wishing you the best of luck on it, and also on avoiding CAPCOM going all derp and stuff :up:

Hi everyone. We not lost, we not gone. New version of our project has arrived on our Mod.db project page.
New version of Resident Evil 3: Restoration Project brings lossless music quality for the entire game, which means new level of sound, new quality of game perception and deeper immersion like newer before.

- We've finally managed to get the background music playing in lossless, which means no compression and loss in quality were applied, exactly the way it sounds on OST CD's.
The music quality is far more better now, sounding in its full palette, which can be appreciated not only by Hi-Fi system owners but the ones who have less expensive equipment.
- The original music playback was fully restored. Some melodies that were muted before can be played again, besides an incorrect playback of some melodies was fixed to loop smoothly.
All credits to RhymeKidder and Lexas87.

annoyment, thanks for your good words, we not afraid of Capcom, we just try to fix their some not well done job.
1. All small things should come after big one.
2. It's already fixed since original project release, you just need to check and verify this.
3. It's interesting, but I never noticed any differences in such effects between PC and PSX, please, explain more clearly, or show it somehow.

RhymeKidder, if you still have opportunity to help in development of some awesome things for this game, we can move forward.
1. This game still have very big unrealized potential. The most of her graphical resources (like backgrounds, movies) performed in full color with 24 bit depth, in spite of this it works only in 16 bit color mode. The game has built in 32 bit resolution option for all game resolutions, and it really switching display in this mode, but judging by the graphic appearance, it actually works only in 16 bit color anyway. Maybe it's possible to find out how to turn on real 32 bit color mode?
2. It seems PC version still have console like options menu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avGH1_oDKuA - it's not a fake. Looks like most functions works, and most important one -
reset game function. It's really shame that this game don't have such useful feature. Maybe it's possible to make it work during game play, besides RE3 still have couple unused keys, it sounds fantastic but what if..?
3. I was thinking about unlocking boutique feature. But with boutique mod game crush in cable car if we select non-standard costume in main menu. There could be a two ways. Make this game start only with standard costume like on PSX by modding of main menu, or find out how to fix game crushing with boutique mod. The second way will be more preferable cause in menu we can choose 7 costumes, but in boutique only 5.

You're :welcome:
For the proof on #3 (yes, it's RE2, the same behavior happens in RE3 as well): check on the fades of the main menu in the PC, and then the PS1 version. The latter bleeds (as seen on the lighter colors, choppiness of the effect doesn't matter) while the former fades evenly. Might be D3D's inability to do the bleeding fades in general (probably possible in software mode, gotta verify)...
As for the PC console menu: "SolidSnake11 is a pretty cool guy, eh hax 4 lulz and doesn't afraid of anything!"
HIDE: ON
