Hello, this is my first time here. I've been trying my best to figure out how to do lots of audio hacking, but most of it is really beyond me so I'd like some help.

There are two Japanese PlayStation 2 games developed by Vanpool (Coloball 2002 and Endonesia) that I've been playing a lot and really adore, I've been wanting to rip the music but there are some difficulties. First, there are some rips on Zophar's Domain that are incomplete and don't have all the music... Meaning I need to rip the music again. Second, some of the music is stored in different places and I don't know how to access it.

In Coloball, the majority of the music is stored in a CDS.bin, I think it's all streamed and I have it all. There are a few other songs that are stored in a "MMS.bin" and a "SEQ.bnk", and I don't know how to open these up. The "original music files" from Zophar are all .genhs. I've used things like MFAudio to try and find and tune the audio files, but I can't figure out all the right information...

For Endonesia, there are a lot of times in the game where the music will become off-key because you're dying or hungry. The Zophar rip seems to contain a lot of these off-key songs and not the regular ones, so I think it needs to be ripped again (or re-tuned, idk). The "original music files" are .mib, .pfs2, and .psf2lib.

I've attached one Coloball file and one Endonesia file, and here are the Zophar links where you can see all the files: https://www.zophar.net/music/playstation2-psf2/coloball-2002 https://www.zophar.net/music/playstation2-psf2/endnesia. You can hear an example of the off-key music for Endonesia in SOUND_0086.

Sorry for the long-winded post. I've been trying to figure this out for weeks and I just can't do it, so I'd appreciate if anyone can give me some pointers or help me extract all the music outright. Thanks for your time :)

Edit: I wasn't paying attention and didn't notice the files couldn't be added... You can find them via those two links though. Sorry :(

Maybe these will be helpful... These are screenshots of what each game's SOUND directories look like, plus Coloball's directory of stuff I can't touch.

Here is a link to Endonesia's SOUND directory: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1GxIMckdETCR05BZXpR6r0lZTdlzpt2TF?usp=sharing

I ran SD_MMS.bin from Endonesia's sound directory link through PSound, and I got about 63 music stings. Perhaps this software may help you extract what you're looking for? :)
Here are the files I got, so you can check: https://mega.nz/folder/WaJBmSDK#POJD_thTdIpmSxn0zSF0Og
Since I've never played the game, I don't know if these are in the right sample rate, however. Hope this helps.

Thank you so much! These definitely don't sound right, but I will try that program out and see what I can do.
