TheVisitorX Posted March 19 Share Posted March 19 (edited) Sound Editor [Released: Version 220.127.116.11] It's time! After several weeks of work, the new version of the Sound Editor is finally live and comes with a lot of new features. But first: A big thank you goes to Mark/Rampage for allowing me to include his data.xml for 2K23. Also, a big thank you to all other authors of the data files from previous releases like Living Human, iTwistedSpartan and others. This was not my work and it wouldn't be possible without you guys! Thank you to everyone who helps and provides their data! And thanks to all the kind words and people who have supported me with donations before! It motivates me a lot! Here's an overview of the new features: Over 90% of the code has been completely reworked and rewritten Many minor and major fixes and improvements (including: search terms and sorting remain when switching as well as selected folders) XML files have been outsourced into databases, making SE compatible with multiple versions (currently 2K19, 2K22, 2K23) Sound-Converter has been completely rewritten and revised (new volume slider, new view of running tasks, download of YouTube music via txt files) New TTS feature for easy creation of RA via Uberduck API New file indexing feature to save storage space -> After opening a PCK file, SE now creates an index of all offsets. If a new file is imported that is larger than the one being overwritten, this table is updated. In the later course, the storage space gained can be reused if it is large enough. New UI (light and dark mode, slim titlebar) Revised export dialog -> mass export as *.ogg is now possible View, export, and import of embedded sound files in soundbanks (import is still UNTESTED and in BETA!!! Use it at your own risk!!!) ... and much more!!! Please note that this is a BETA version that may still have errors. I am not liable for any risks or damages that may arise from use. ALWAYS create a backup before doing anything else. A final word: My tools are, have been, and will always be free. I will not offer earlier access via Patreon or charge anything for them to be used by anyone. But developing them has cost me time and money. For example, my Uberduck access costs me money every month. Therefore, I would be very grateful for any donations. So if my work helps you and you find it useful, I would appreciate your support. Thank you! Notice: Not all data for 2K23 has been collected yet. If you want, you can send me your custom_data.xml file and I will merge your additions with the next update. This is a first test version and may contains bugs!!! ALWAYS MAKE A BACKUP BEFORE USING IT!!!!! !!! Please read !!! SE is compatible with WWE 2K23 and should also work with previous titles. It ships with a database for 2K19, 2K22 and 2K23! More can be added manually. Here is a tutorial video on how to use it (Thanks @Waldoocs) Changes 18.104.22.168 Changed: - TTS now opens the internal file browser after successful result 22.214.171.124 Changed: - Adjusted scaling (experimental, still needs work) 126.96.36.199 Added: - Completely new and revised audio player - TTS engine rebuilt on FakeYou (experimental feature) Changed: - Changed the behaviour of the template selection in "Sound-Converter" from a radio button to a combobox - Added volume adjustment for sound preview to settings - Automation for "Phonetic Abbreviations" can now be optionally used in the TTS dialog, which converts individual letters directly into their phonetic counterpart, for example: M J F = Em Jay Eff - Added alternative dialog for "manual" selection of sound files in audio player and sound converter - Backups are now created when deleting files - App no longer starts maximized but remembers the current status as before - Completely adjusted handling of title bar, especially the "drag" option, which sometimes did not work, as well as maximize/minimize/close functionality - Removed border from focused minimize, maximize, close buttons - Added new DLC entries to DB + update of current data (Thanks again to Nikita Roberts!) Once again, my request. Providing TTS has incurred high costs here. SE is completely free for you and I would like to continue offering it for free, as well as a TTS option. However, there are costs for me that I would like to and need to cover, so if you like my work, please use the donation button within the app. Even if it's only 1-2 euros. Thank you very much! 188.8.131.52 Added: - RA data for 2K14 from @denbigh7 - RA data for 2K23 from @esbatmusic- @Nikk_Roberts on Twitter 184.108.40.206 Added: - Sound-Import (still WIP, please leave feedback!): Finally, full support for 2K14 PCK files! (It is now possible to import sound files directly into a 2K14 archive - please note that this only works with files specifically created for this version!) - Sound-Converter: Support for conversion to 'Legacy' files (files for 2K14) has been added - Sound-Converter: Volume has been optimized and renamed to 'Volume-Boost'. The slider has been adjusted and now ranges from 0 (no change) to 40dB. 2K14 requires very high values here, so the range has been extended. 220.127.116.11 Fixed: - Validation for YouTube links in "Sound Converter" should now support more link formats Added: - Crowd chant lines by Taylor86 @PWM - Thank you very much!! 18.104.22.168 Fixed: - Wrong file ids for little endian PCK files Fixed: 22.214.171.124 Added: - Partial support for WWE 2K14 lastgen PCK files (read, preview, export is possible, import is not yet implemented) - Database folders for WWE 2K14 lastgen and up to 2K18 (currently without any data) Fixed: - Fixed an issue where the window was still draggable when the cursor has been moved outside of the window Changed: - The UI has been tweaked a bit more to make it more consistent and to make it easier to use - Titlebar and some other components now have a visible background color 126.96.36.199 Added: - It is now possible to export files as ogg and wem with their name (which is now the default setting and can be change in program settings) instead of ID 188.8.131.52 Added: - Rudimentary support for PS4 PCK files (read, preview, export) 184.108.40.206 Fixed: - Importing RA sounds with smaller size moves files to another folder 220.127.116.11 Fixed: - App is now always starting maximized to prevent issues with 'invisible' window - TTS input box was always disabled - Drag'n Drop on labels in "PCK-Archiver" tool wasn't working 18.104.22.168 Fixed: - File encryption brokes indexing 22.214.171.124 Added: - AI powered "Identity" tool for RAs (very much experimental!) - Drag'n Drop functionality into datagridview for faster wem-file import Optimized/Fixed: - File indexing into larger PCK files took a really long time - Sound-Converter tool shows filename with extension (should be without) - Tweaked the order of contextmenu items (Export/Import/Identify, ...), added some separators 126.96.36.199 - Initial Release Download (installer) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1CXH4euc5d580mpT5VgfZuK_LP2p9vduO/view?usp=sharing Please also install the dependencies, if you don't have it: https://drive.google.com/file/d/15TxqjFvUG7PzjtsRZl6n0X_GyOtZ_QN1/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lrSCBhtxgQ2lmjaUStgBZS1sGaqTEs6z/view?usp=sharing Without that, conversion to wem does not work!!! This program is released as it is. Use it at your own risk! I don't take any responsibility for anything (good or bad) that may happen by using it! You should only use this tool on a clean game installation otherwise it could have some issues! FAQ What does this tool do? It gives you the opportunity to export, play and replace sounds in the game WWE 2K. What you can't do You can NOT add new sounds and it is also not possible to rename existing. Here is a tutorial video on how to use SE for importing custom music (Thanks @Waldoocs) How to GET CUSTOM MUSIC For WWE 2K23! (UPDATED Step-By-Step) - WWE 2K23 Mods - YouTube Why is there no name for some sound files? Because nobody has named them yet. This is a manually process and needs a lot of time and effort. If I try to open Sound Editor 2023 after an update it shows me some configuration error message Like in the past, some users have problems with the internal update tool which - in some cases - corrupts the configuration file. To fix this do the following: Navigate to: C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\Sound_Editor\Sound_Editor.exe_Url_somehash\188.8.131.52 delete the user.config file here. After this SE should start normaly but you have to make all changes in settings again. I get an error if I try to convert files to wem -> "File 0 conversion to wem failed. Please check your Wwise settings!" What do I need to run this tool? Sound Editor is a .NET-Application. So you will need .NET-Framework 4.8 to run this application! You will also need a 64bit Windows version up to Windows 10/11, because the executable was build with 64bit support. OH NO!!! Your tool is a virus!!! I've get virus alerts from XYZ!!! This tool uses methods to read and write to memory and file streams and also needs (admin) access to the registry because it gets its path information from there. Some Anti Virus doesn't like that and their heuristic scan recognizes it as a virus! So if you'll get that alert it is simply because of that. I can guarantee you that there is no virus. It's only a "false positive". So you will have to add this application to your exceptions. If you don't trust me, no problem. You don't have to use this tool! What audio format do I need for themes? You can only import *.wem files! WEM is a custom audio format / container made by Audiokinetic! Can I import my wav or mp3 files? Yes, but you have to convert them to *.wem first, because the game doesn't support other files than wem! I will expand on this post later.
