i thought this meant its compatible with 2k12 too??

Or is it just that the tool is only compatible with 2k13?? If that's the case im hoping there's a tool in the works for 2k12 :cheeky:

2k12 isnt completely dead as many of us still play it do to the great UBR.. im sure hawk would love to change some 2k12 songs :mrgreen: (Y)

melomanu20, the tool won't work on Windows XP. I'm starting to make use of technologies in .NET Framework 4.5, and I guess that doesn't support Windows XP. I'm sorry for that. You'll need Windows Vista, 7 or 8 to run any of my tools that use these technologies, and most of them will be migrated to them soon (NBA Stats Tracker has already switched, for example, and others will follow).

As for 2K11/2K12 compatibility and compatibility with other audio .bin files, I'll work on that today. I think I've found the magic strings I need to detect chunks and files, so I'll see if I can automate this.

melomanu20, unfortunately I can't help you with that. You'll have to ask your local computer stores.

Sometimes it just takes a good night's sleep before you're back, kicking. And kick I did.

v0.2 has been released!

- Addition: All NBA 2K BIN Audio files that are of similar format are now compatible
- Addition: Ability to save and load descriptions for audio segments
- Addition: Added button to clear song cache
- Improvement: Various minor improvements and fixes

How about ALL NBA 2K BIN AUDIO FILES being editable? Not just jukeboxmusic.bin, ALL BIN FILES. The tool will now automatically detect files and chunks inside any NBA 2K BIN Audio file you give it, as long as it uses the format we've researched. My tests show that it can open all NBA 2K12 and 2K13 audio files, and I replaced one of 2K12's songs with one of my own already.

So have at it, and have fun!

Awesome work! Is there anyway to export a song in an mp3 format from the .bin file?

There are 3 .bin files that (I believe) are used in blacktop mode? Which one is used for music? I would think one of them is used for the announcer.

aistreet.bin
aostreet.bin
asstreet.bin

BOOM

anyway you could take it one step further and make it a playable audio file, even an export all? Then we could know which commentary/environment segment we are editing/replacing, rather than trial and error.
Opinions are my own.

also since its asf type you can use
wmplib to play http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hGsv4Cths8
and WindowsMediaEncoder lib to cut/edit songs
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microso ... 02347.html

For anyone intersted, here's how you do it.

Go to microsoft and download the Windows Media Encoder SDK.
Add a reference to WMEncoderLib.dll

WMEncBasicEdit BasicEdit = new WMEncBasicEdit();
BasicEdit.MediaFile = "source.wma";
BasicEdit.OutputFile = "destination.wma";
BasicEdit.MarkIn = 1200 // time in miliseconds
BasicEdit.MarkOut = 18000 //time in miliseconds
BasicEdit.Start();

That's it. It's that simple.



create a basic header :cheeky:
insert dat at end
play/copy/cut...

nesa24, I don't think it works that way. There's no "basic header" for those files AFAIK, because every file after being encoded with xWMAEncode has a different header, specifically their dpds section which takes care of seeking are different both in length and content. I'll try, but I have my doubts.

Have you managed to get any .DAT file to play by inserting a basic xWMA header?

JaoSming, what I said above is what's stopping me from making the exported files playable. I'll see if I can whip up a header that works on all segments.

EDIT: In order for those files to be playable/convertable, we need to rebuild their dpds table. I studied two xWMAencode'd files in Hex On Steroids and I saw that the dpds table consists of 32-bit integers, each denoting how much data will have been decoded after each xWMA data packet has been processed. Unfortunately, these are non-standard, and there's no way for me to be able to predict them. The other way would be to figure out how the game plays them, which would probably take a managed wrapper of XAudio2 or something... and, yeah, that seems like a lot.

In any case, I'll do Export All.

generic header + .dat ( striped data )
when i have time i will explain

it worked for me yesterday on my home pc
when i get home and find some hexing time i will demonstrate how i did it (hex + c# code for writing/playing)

yeltrah123, can't help you if you don't tell me what error you got.

nesa24, okay, when figure out how to build a generic header, let me know. I'll code it into the tool ASAP.

EDIT: Done with export all and some other enhancements, such as improved loading speed and the ability to load huge files like lines*.bin fast. I'm waiting for nesa24 to help me in order to make the exported files playable and even play segments from inside the tool, and I'll release the new version.
