    Hey, I'm trying my hand at extracting the songs and data in the new Taiko no Tatsujin game, I wanted to extract the sounds and songs to have as mp3s, and try to look at the data to see if any more unlocks can be found (such as the mcdonalds song unlock here http://nintendo5star.blogspot.com/2010/07/...51st-song.html). Besides sound codes for the unlocks, there's hiragana input, so hopefully more unlocks will be somewhere in there.

    My problem is with the songs... I've used dsbuff to extract the data, and the sounds are visible in the /Data/Sound/ folder of the unpack, but they are all in .dsb format. dssndext.exe was able to get files in the wavsample folder it extracts, but they are all the game/wifi play/rpg/menu sfx, but not the songs. has any other game used this sound format, and has anyone had luck decoding them? I searched the forums but it looks like with other games you can look at the .strm or .sdat files, but there isn't one in the game.

    As far as unlocks, looks like there's no extra songs, but there's another drum sound besides the small taiko sound you get with the mcdonald's song unlock, it's Mekadon (the robot drum from autoplay mode). the other unlocks should be costumes and masks, since the spaces are there, i'll try to figure out how to extract the images (they are .pb files in the /data/Image/ folder) and see if I can find the strings that need to be entered to unlock them... don't expect too much though, this is my first experience with ROM hacking, so I'm learning as I go.

    Edit: Confirmed Mekadon as the 26th sound, name:???? description: ????????????? (Everyone's beloved Mekadon) @ 00123C90

    Ok, nevermind about the .sdat file, I found it, but it doesn't have the songs information on it, just the sound files, so it looks like the only way to get the songs is to decrypt the .dsb files that are in the /data/sound/ folder somehow. Looking at musicinfo.bin, I see there are no more songs to unlock, it's just the McDonald's one [​IMG]

    As for costumes and hats, here's the info on them, still looking around for the unlock conditions or passwords

    well, i had an old song extractor, only can extract.
    i've been using desmume to record a song.
    it's working properly. with my all-unlocked save (51songs)
    the problem is, you have to avoid some sound effect. (like rainbow)
    and there is no music in .sdat. i'm trying to remix musics in 1&2
    i don't know what i'm saying. sorry....
    - i found 3 has dsb format 2 has s14 format
    - i'm keep trying.
    songs and notes are seperated.
    one song has 4 notes (e - easy, n - normal, h -hard, m - mad) ex) relati1p_h.bin means SONG NAME:relations DIFFICULTY:hard
    i put taiko2's song but failed. however, you can exchange songs.
    and song links are in musicinfo.bin
