will or dose VGMToolBox have an encryption key slot for extracting AWB/ACB?

Not at this time. Not sure how it is implemented, but I'll look around for examples. Do you have any sample files?

So, I found a special type of .pss file. Here are the samples.

Keep in mind that there are still some files left to be uploaded in this folder, though. Game is Zone of the Enders.

Can't seem to get that mega link to work.

@snakemeat - Do you want me to link at least one file then?

I looked at the Zone of Enders PSS files. Evidently, they are MPEG blocks with custom data (no actual video data). You can get the "real" data (audio+subs) out with the video demultiplexer in VGMToolbox, but it needs further parsing. I haven't been able to figure it out, but it should be pretty easy to manually extract the stuff by eye afterwards, and then you can just GENH them.

For example, here's anna2a41.pss.

Newer .ACB files do not seem to work when I have a matching .AWB archive to try and extract the names.

Error received: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Samples provided

ACB/AWB Update by snakemeat at 4:05 PM EDT on October 30, 2016

It looks like CRI updated the ACB spec. Here's an updated version of VGMT that works with your sample: here.

For anyone interested: the "Id" field for Waveforms is now either "MemoryAwbId" or "StreamAwbId" in the new format. The ACB copy of the checksum of the AWB file has also been changed to a 100 byte (800 bit) field. Not sure what the algorithm to generate it is, so it is skipped for newer sets.

@AnonRunzes, Nisto

Thanks for the samples. Agree with Nisto on this.

Cool thanks :) Like usual though, the ACB doesn't have enough cue names to match the number of files inside the AWB archive. There seem to be more dummy files than there are in the cue sheet.

When it extracts/names the HCA files, does it just do it in alphabetical order or are there given specific offset locations in the ACB that match the name to the track offset inside the AWB file?
