Need help extracting sound from .str files

Post by terminator@ » December 31st, 2016, 5:15 am

Hi,
I am trying to modify the .str files of the Dragon Ball GT Final Bout game to change the the character voices of the game to another language. The problem is that these .str are not the same type of format as other games: They're like a pack of sounds. I have tried using Xtractor .NET, quickbms and other programs, but I don't even know if the program is extracting correctly the .str files. And in the case I succeed on extracting them, I don't know how to repack the files because, as I said, it doesn't has the same structure as the majority of STR files. Does anyone know how to edit these .str files?
Here you have the .iso of the game:


Here is the iso

STR files don't contain SPU based audio. It's all interleaved XA, so replacing it would consist of remaking the entire STR from scratch.
Development Console: SCPH-5502 with 8MB RAM, MM3 Modchip, PAL 60 Colour Modification (for NTSC), DB-9 breakout headers for both RGB and Serial output and an Xplorer with CAETLA 0.34.

Development Computer: Windows 98, Pentium 3 [400MHz], 128MB SDRAM, DTL-H2000, DTL-H201A, 21" Sony Trinitron CRT, CD-ROM burner, 3.25" and 5.25" Floppy Diskette Drives and a ZIP 100 Diskette Drive.

but the str has not the same "shape" as the original one, it shows a lot of small files

I had a very quick look, and it seems it a custom format they've made. You'll have to write a tool yourself which will rip out the required data as most likely it's been packed with multiple STR segments.
