Gamecube Music?
 
First was PSF, then USF, then GSF. What's next? Maybe the next sound format should be the Gamecube Sound Format (call it GCM). Is there any chance in the future to make that kind of format?

GCM is used and it doesn't play music.<img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>

Well, get started developing one then. Chop chop!

As far as I've seen, GCN is just like PS2 (hell, and any other console, really) in that there's no generic sound format that's used 100% of the time. For example, Phantasy Star Online uses ADX, a streamed format that's found in many Dreamcast and PS2 games. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles uses the WD/BGM sequence format that's found in most of Square-Enix's PS2 games. There are probably tons of other custom drivers used in other games.

It's a given that the ideal situation would have a sound format for every game console imaginable available. Until then, keep your damned pants on and be patient, and unless you can directly contribute, keep your yap shut.

From what I understand, the 'Cube's sound hardware isn't nearly as well understood as say...PS2, or the DreamCast's (keep in mind there's been a big homebrew community for the DC for years). For this to happen somebody'd have to figure out the MusyX hardware, then actually have the means to dump a GCN disk, which seems like a pain in the ass the way it's done (although there IS a DC format and in a way GCN discs aren't so dissimilar to rip, so I'd think this isn't out of the question).

Basically I'd guess this wouldn't happen any time soon, and while that would be awesome, I'm definitely happy with the current progress being made on all these PSF formats. Basically, there's so many that I think everyone deserves a break. :P

I am neither a girl nor a rock. I am a soundcard, damnit.
