A Satellaview research blog.

The sound of novelty and horse racing

Here’s a brand new Satellaview Memory Pack dump from Andrew Henderson, with some interesting content, to say the least.

This Memory Pack contains 4 files, filled with brand new undumped content, and everything works.

The first file is オキラクコウザ (お気楽講座), which is actually a first: This is the first dump of a playable Sound Novel Tsukūru DLC!
This is dated June 30th, 1996, and with a bit of a playthrough, this is a very silly one, and it’s fairly hard to find actual information about this.
It starts with a lot of instructions, and a choice between the main story, a minigame and to exit. I did not understand much, unfortunately.

To play it, load the Memory Pack with Sound Novel Tsukuru, select the first option, then the last option, then it should be after the two first samples from the base game.

The second and third file are KANADERU SCORE, which are Ongaku Tsukuru music data. The thing to understand about these files is that they’re basically SRAM backups, not very different in functionality than using ASCII’s Super Turbo File. Loading one of these would replace the SRAM entirely.
What is very interesting however, I believe these are actual downloadable content of some sort because these are some of the actual non converted music used in Ryōma de Yuku!

Normally, you use the convert feature of Ongaku Tsukuru to make a new file compatible with RPG Tsukuru 2 and Sound Novel Tsukuru, but you cannot actually convert back to an editable format, so this is either the Memory Pack of someone who actually made the music, or this was made available via broadcasts.

The fourth file is サテスポDX5号 (Satesupo DX Vol.5), which is a magazine pretty much all about horse racing! You may remember that we have dumped some of these in the past, which also prompted the findings of new Satellaview music (which were in the BS-X ROM the whole time), there’s really not much to say as we don’t really read japanese properly, but we still think these magazines should be preserved too.

The overdump data after those is from a RPG Maker Super Dante title, it cannot be differenciated from any of the Super Dante games like Jewel of Live or Cock-A-Doodle-Doo, there’s nothing to recover.

Here’s the file with the full Memory Pack dump. Again, thanks Andrew Henderson for the dump!

Listen to some strange-sounding SPC rips.

A few weeks ago I’ve tried making a go at ripping music from Satellaview ROM SPCs looking for some songs that aren’t going around in common sets.

I’m still mastering the ripping art at the moment. You can see some of my results here.

For you guys who don’t have SPC Players but want to take a listen to some of the rips, I’ve Chun-Yu’d them to MP3 form for your listening torture – er, pleasure.

A few notes to the other SPC rippers out there – these are my first real attempts at ripping these, so I’m sorry if there’s any grave errors.
for the ones in which I just have the name of the ROM.spc, those songs are the only songs I could access. Most of the song names for ROMs with more than one song were made up based on some text that was on the page along with the music.

(EDIT: I’ve had a problem with these MP3s sounding weird on the embed, but not on Winamp. Therefore I’m direct-linking the Mp3s on top of the embeds, in case other people also have this problem.)
