[Rayman Revolution] Importing VSC.BF

Post by Fifo » Sat May 26, 2018 7:29 pm

Howdy experts!

As a challenge, I’d like to try ripping all the Rayman Revolution music myself.

I’ve found out that the music is stored in VSC.BF. How do I import that file? What’s its format?
Importing it as raw 16-bit PCM (22,050 Hz) gives me noise.

Thanks in advance. :)

Trying to get into ripping? Nice! :)
I remember that the main BF file had a .DSC file that came along with it and stored the offsets and sizes of all files in the BF file, but I don't remember if the music BF came with one or not. If it has one, you should first extract the individual files or you'll be stuck with one big clunky wav file in the end.

As for the format, it's not PCM, but PS2 ADPCM. You need to create a genh file for it using VGMToolbox before you can convert it to PCM using VGMStream.
It'll ask you for the format (PS2 ADPCM), the sample rate and channels, and the interleave. I think the interleave was 0x10 but it's a long time ago so I'm probably wrong.

I hope that helps! If it doesn't, I'll look at the files and refresh my memory on the process ;)

Did you get this sorted in the end? I just found this thread on the bottom of the last page and I don't need to explain why. :P

I'd be also interested to try this myself too when I'm not doing anything, just to see if I can and also because why not. :)
How much Ray may a Rayman man if a Rayman may Man Ray?
