[WIP][release][pre-alpha]Modded Monaco RS2 Online Dreamshell Edition

Post#1 » Mon Sep 25, 2017 10:58 am

TLDR; Jump to EDIT2!





Hey guys,

since Monaco has been brought online again, is anyone interested in an "updated", modded release in style of ReviveDC?
I spent a couple of days studying its file formats and can confirm following mods to be possible:

+100% modable
---------------------
-official Driver names,official Team names - already updated to 2017 season data
-official Track names - already updated to 1998 season data
-Menu gfx - already changed a couple of loading screens(see Menu assets download link below )
-CDDA music (mrneo managed to create a working CDI, so music probably can be swapped easily)
-all Game menus


+100% modable (most likely)
---------------------
-FMVs (already got the intro vid swapped with F1 Racing Championship's one)
-making oldtimer race track playable in multiplayer(in case it's not working in an official way)
-->First tests failed
-Sound effects (no tests yet, low priority)


+ 70-100% moddable (usable file converter needed):
---------------------
+Car textures(can be viewed as RAW Data, no proper color palette yet)
+Track textures(can be viewed as RAW Data, no proper color palette yet)
EDIT can be swapped with custom ones. Color palette and resolution must remain the same though

+Track skyboxes(can be viewed as RAW Data, no proper color palette yet)
+Cockpit gfx(managed to make F1RC cockpits show up, no patrticullar order yet)



EDIT2:

Hey Moi,
That sounds like a great idea! Maybe you could make a 2018 version with new drivers names and change the car textures to represent current year.

I havent played the game but from what ive seen it looks like a lot of areas could be more polished. Any improvements would be great.
Dreamcast: Blue Swirl, 60hz, White LED, Removable battery holder, Internal SD card reader, BBA, DreamPi, RGB Scart

Sounds great! Maybe you could swap the music from dayona usa 2001, or maybe some other Sega classic as the in game music in my opinion is pretty awful

I just finished a tool that might help with this but maybe not.

If you need help I just made a selfboot of this game and still have the files.
My utility:
Neodc_cdda.exe (2 versions: tiny 6k, large 92k) can rip cdda tracks and encode them to FLAC or WAV. Working on reinserting currently. I'll post it in a minute

Good luck on your mods!

Let's change the banner to have Shuouma instead of Castrol, lol! Too bad we cannot pay tribute to him somewhere!
