exciter: Looks mostly stream-based, very surprising, would have thought pieces like the Sandship dungeon music would play via sequence for sure.

dj4uk6cjm: Wait, so no sequences afterall? Aww... I was hoping at least the boss themes would be sequenced.

exciter: Getting some .rwav files from the .BRSAR files, which were extracted from the 'Sound' folder in Skyward Sword's main directory. If there are sequences, they aren't in the Sound folder
Jul 16, 2014 21:28:50 GMT -5
exciter: Could be somewhere else, never know
Jul 16, 2014 21:28:55 GMT -5
exciter: I'll upload a copy of the files I've extracted from these .BRSARs
Jul 16, 2014 21:34:07 GMT -5
dj4uk6cjm: .RWAVs are the samples afaik, I've extracted the new super mario bros. wii samples before and it uses the same format to hold them...BRSAR...crap I hate that format! Don't know where else they could be except there are none probably.

dj4uk6cjm: Sadly this reminds me of the time I had tried to find the samples and sequences in starfox assault and ninja gaiden dragon sword, nothing. Nintendo could have hidden them or there aren't any.

exciter: Ah, I'll upload it anyway just for the hell of it, I'll look around in the rest of Skyward Sword's ISO, see if there's anything else
Jul 16, 2014 21:39:36 GMT -5
exciter: Put them in a .RAR titled 'demo' in the new folder 'Skyward Sword .RWAV files' on the sample collection page
Jul 16, 2014 21:40:08 GMT -5
dj4uk6cjm: Thanks for trying anyways I'll check out what you uploaded.

exciter: The sound directory file names are pretty funny: ZELDA_V_RETHINK
Jul 16, 2014 21:41:23 GMT -5
exciter: 'GIRAHIM_WalkL/R', as if it has separate directories for samples used when Ghirahim steps using his left foot removed from the samples used by his right foot. Oddly specific

exciter: Do you recall if Twilight Princess's .BMS files are stored in an unpackable file format like .BRSAR in some way?
Jul 16, 2014 21:44:43 GMT -5
exciter: Skyward Sword's sequences/streamed audio could be stored in a container format, perhaps .ARC or something
Jul 16, 2014 21:45:20 GMT -5
exciter: Not all that familiar with these formats
Jul 16, 2014 21:45:28 GMT -5
exciter: Think .ARC would house the 3D models, would be surprised if any audio-related material were in there
Jul 16, 2014 21:47:11 GMT -5
exciter: These .DAT files look a little funky, looks like they're all "movie" related in some way. Could involve audio in some way
Jul 16, 2014 21:49:50 GMT -5
exciter: Perhaps sequences/streams are stored stage by stage, could look in the Stage directories for anything interesting
Jul 16, 2014 21:52:48 GMT -5
dj4uk6cjm: Those might be the cutscenes and no twilight princess uses Z2Sound for their sequences (BMS) which is an ARC file. This is the gamecube version of the game, not sure about the wii version of twilight princess though.

dj4uk6cjm: Good god! Skyward Sword has some awesome samples!!! I'm going to have to get to looping these soon.
