I have it :

show spoiler»



It's a better widescreen hacks than the one we used.
I'm trying to polish it, keeping the main title screen in 4/3 format in order to avoid the clouds issue before to release a complete widescreen hacks version.

For me, it's not possible to keep the main title screen in 4/3 than the game is still in 16/9.

One possible issue is to fond a background picture larger than 4/3... If you have somewhere...

I'll share the widescreen 16/9 track03.bin soon.

https://darius-saturn.com/forum/downloa ... &mode=view

We are going on well, but I would like to use this project for trying to import some models and skins from gamecube version like Vyse and Alfonso :

https://www.noelshack.com/2019-32-4-156 ... 042773.jpg

https://www.noelshack.com/2019-32-4-156 ... 417990.jpg


so I had a look on datas. There are stored identically but as we know the gamecube version is quite compress and for a file with textures like player.MLD (we can find Vyse textures here), I have this :
https://ibb.co/LgZ26pb

All files are compresses by the same way.
Do you have any idea how I could I unzip the files ?

May you can suggest me a gamecube forum where I could find some help please ?

Any progress with using the GameCube skins/textures in the Dreamcast version?

I did a mistake, I find some help on obscure gamer forum :
"Skies of Arcadia Legends files are AKLZ encrypted, use this command line tool to decrypt them (made by ADnova): https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/ ... 0/aklz.exe

To decompress a file:
aklz -d inputFileName.sct -o outputFileName.sct

-d for decompress
-o for output

But don't work...

That's too bad with the GC Skies Legends files.

So the updated widescreen version on the first post is for both discs? The only difference, besides widescreen, is the intro piano music?
