    Hey guys, I'm currently in the process of making a ROMHack for Garfield Kart (Don't Ask), but I seem to have run into some issues, namely with the audio files.

    The files are in BCWAV format, but when using ctr_WaveConverter32.exe, I can't manage to make a file that I can replace the current audio files with. Whenever I load the rebult romfs with HANS the audio just glitches out and the game eventually freezes.

    So my question is: Am I doomed to stick to the default audio with this game? Or is there some sort of BCWAV editor I just haven't found? Or am I just missing something obvious?

    Honestly, after hours of searching, I'm at my wit's end, any help or advice would be GREATLY appreciated.

    I'll bite.
    Google gives you this: http://www.3dbrew.org/wiki/BCWAV.
    This is a very good header description. It's IMA adpcm, which is a common ADPCM format. Try renaming it to .wav and opening it? If it works, use ffmpeg or an ffmpeg-backend editor like Audacity to export IMA ADPCM.
    Otherwise, I suggest you try editing the header in a hex editor.

    vgmstream may be able to play this

    What and why? For some reason I feel like it's related to syrup.
    Anyway, I'll release a tutorial on these once I have my OR/AS ROM hack done with these files. (TUTORIAL: GOVRENEMNT TOP SCERET)
    I don't have a proof of concept yet, as it's actually more complex to replace cries than to just edit the BCSAR.

    Until then, you can send them to me and they'll be ready for happy .wav editing in a few seconds.

    Thank you so much man. I've had so much trouble finding any way to edit or alter these files, so your help is truly a godsend to a noob like me! Though I'll probably just wait for some sort of soundfile editing tutorial to come out, since I don't want to send people the sounds I'm putting in this game for now, due to the nature of the ROMHack I'm making (and how much hate it could potentially attract).

    I'll probably end up making a thread about it once the hack is complete and everything is working, since I'm sure at least SOMEONE on this forum will enjoy it.

    But until I can actually edit and replace these audio files that definitely won't happen, unfortunately. So the sooner I can get this stuff edited, the sooner it will release! ;)
