[THPS3] [PC] Random Soundtrack Fix & GameCube Soundtrack Restoration

This THPS3 patch brings to you the soundtrack quality at an higher bitrate (from GameCube) and also fix the random song order which was the same at each game boot.
The mod also include automatic high resolution/widescreen hack.


To enable HQ audio quality (320kbps music) :
- launcher.exe => check "use .mp3 extension"

Image

- If you still have the music, then it works !

To enable Random soundtrack fix (Might be required) :
- Skate3.exe and launcher.exe set compatibility mode as Admin

About the save :
- 100% savegame is included by default with random OST option selected
- If you create a new save or use another one, be sure to select the random option and save it again !

The mod is also compatible with LevelMod v4.2.0

Note :
Tracks of Redman/Del/AFI were encoded in mp3 v0 due to being not playable at 320kbps by the engine.

Credits:
- Demo for the launcher
- ThirteenAG for the random soundtrack fix

Pretty cool.
I mainly grew up with the Gamecube version so this will be pretty great.

I've always ran the launcher without compatibility mode and it works fine for me. It just gives me the "no way" message but the game still launches anyway.

I've seen some people complaining about the "file not found" message, i got the error too, making it unusable without that tip.

So I tried it and it's pretty good.
I took out the mp3 player part of the mod and just added the files to the game's already-existing music folder since there was no way to turn the music off.
Also, the CKY song still has that slowdown bug/mess up at the end of the song. I don't have a problem with that though. Just pointing it out.

That bug's normally in the Gamecube version anyway so it had nothing to do with the ripping.

I confirm, they destroyed the track on gamecube only.

Final version out!
Native mp3 player used and random order completely patched.

I recommend to do a fresh install if you used the previous version.

Track "I can't surf" is heavily distorted in its last part, maybe there are more distorted songs as this and other one from CKY, I wasn't listening carefully whole album but still noticed those two. I decided to rip music from game discs by myself until I find the best version of soundtrack, because obviously Catarax didn't checked any of his releases before uploading, who knows how many faulty songs are in his releases. Peace.
