Changing Music in Crazi Taxi 2!!!

Here is another one you all might like. Hopefully this will reduce the repetitive posts on the main forum. This may sound similar to the THPS2 Tutorial I wrote, and thats because, IT IS.

Programs you'll need:
get from: [URL=********]********

isobuster or CDmage
Sound editor (I used windows sound recorder)

Echelon self boot tutorial from Grimdeath's site: [URL=***********]***********

1. use isobuster or CDmage to extract game data to hard drive (make folder called "Data")

2. Sort files by type and copy out the files named "SONG3.adx, SONG4.adx, SONG5_2.adx" and SONG6.adx, and put them in a folder called "Music"

3. Select 4 songs that you want to use in the game (convert mp3 to wav on a side note) before proceeding. You'll have to cut down the size and lengths of the songs so they closely match the size of the originals. I used the windows sound recorder just to trim them down a bit, but i'm sure there are others that might be better. (use a one word naming system for the songs i.e. "Master of puppets" to "Puppets" it makes it easier when working in DOS in the next steps).

4. Next compare the volumes between the originals and the new songs, as they may be different. You may want to adjust volumes with the "adxcv" program in DOS to set the volumes, but its not critical. The read me file gives a good description of how to use it, the volume level I selected was 10000000 . Better to be a little high and turn it down if necessary. You'll have to convert back to adx first using the wav2adx program, and then set set sound levels.

6. If you tweaked any sound levels you are all set for a moment, if not then run the adxencd program, and convert all songs to adx format. Rename all new songs accordingly (i.e. back to original Crazi Taxi song names), so that they correspond to the original names.

7. now in the music directory you'll have 4 new .adx songs. Delete the wavs unless you want to save them. Cut and paste the new songs into the game data directory, It will ask if you want to replace existing files say yes to all.

Thats it!!! Now use the Echelon self boot tutorial, (I used Grimdeaths Tutorial cause it got pics and real easy to understand), to put the game back to CD.

Hopefully this was easy for people to understand. It worked perfectly for me. It's pretty much the same as THPS2, so if you've done that one this one will be a piece of cake, if not it may sound a little difficult but its actually not that bad to do with a little patience.
