    Hey all, I'm doing a redub of Rhapsody DS so we can have the english voices (and higher quality BGMs... they suck right now). My boyfriend has an R4 and I have a DS Xtreme 2GB. I noticed the card bandwidth on both of them is very different. On the DSX, the bandwidth is too low for the cut scenes, on the R4, its very fast. I need people with multiple types of flash cards to assist with debugging the cut scenes with music. My target goal for the romsize will be 256 MB, but will probably be much smaller if I need to decrease the bit rates.

    So who do I need? Well I need dedicated testers willing to try out betas of the ROM on their flashcarts. The kicker is I need a WIDE variety of testers. So I will need at least 1 of every type to ensure its working optimally for all of them.

    Specifically I need:
    Cyclo
    M3
    G6
    N5
    DSX - 512 MB version

    Did I miss anyone? Let me know.

    Also, I dont have much time to go through the game, so another DSX 2GB and R4 user would be greatly appreciated but not needed. If anything, the game will be optimized for use on the DSX, all of the other cards SHOULD be able to keep up. Best cast scenario, if testers co-operate, I should be able to release a high bit rate version for audiophiles to use on faster cards like the R4.

    Game is close to being done, just have a few more things to rip from the PSX version. Easily one of the easiest things to do. Google says everyone wants this... yet it has yet to be done? Weird lol. Anyway, let me know!

    Edit: just saw CPhantoms post, weird google didn't come up with it. Anyway, by his description, his will only handle the musical parts, mine will be the entire score. His also borked on the DSX, so this will aim to fix those issues [​IMG].

    I can be the extra R4 [​IMG] (who isn't needed [​IMG] )
    but the m3 N5 and G6 all is a VERY similar system flashme thingy as the R4 (the N5 and G6 actually have the exact same interface ... as far as im aware ...)

    I actually am done 100% with all the music. The patch I have it entirely ready.

    does it really mess up with other carts though? Me, I only tested it on my R4, and I know that emulators just screw it up, but I don't think speed would mess it up.

    Then again, you said you were using a DS-X, lol.

    like, is it heavily off? On the R4 it is slightly behind, but not horrid. The text is actually just faster because of the Japanese songs being faster than the english. Is it like a heavily obvious flaw, or is it just slightly lagging?

    It's actually not really possible to do a 100% sync up to the Japanese speed text at the bottom without cutting up the songs a bit more and then probably somehow changing the text box speeds.

    I was actually thinking of releasing a song patch for that song. It was pretty off, and I was going to see if I could cut the time from the English song to make it fit more. More specifically, the timing between their singing could be trimmed to make it look nicer.

    But yeah, also if you'd like to see the other song I was going to patch, it's further in the game, so spoiler box for your use if you'd like
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    So far no good. I wish I could find somewhere/someone with it, but I can't. It'd actually be easier adding that to the ROM than the English though to get the songs aligned, haha.

    I can test for CycloDS.
    It's a bit of a surprise to see a redub thread, most ask for undubs.

    I can do backup testing for the M3 Real with all three firmwares if needed. I'm at chapter 2 right now.
