How to convert DC *.ADX sound files back to one *.AFS sound file?

They are used in Metropolis Street Racer for e.g..
These are a few *.ADX Dreamcast sound files packed in one *.AFS sound file.

If I want to downsample the *.ADX audio files, I had to extract the *.AFS file into the different *.ADX files using AFS Extractor ver.0.3.
Then I got a few *.ADX files.

Now I had to convert the *.ADX files to *.WAV files using ADX2WAV.

Then I use COOL EDIT 2K to downsample the audio files to fit it on a CD-R.

Now I use WAV2ADX to convert the *.WAV files back to *.ADX files.

This all works fine, but now I have to convert the*.ADX files to back to one *.AFS file, and that's where the troubles begin.

I use AFSLNK to do this, typing the following commands in a DOS box:

1. Step: Make a list of all *.adx files in the dir which should be combine back to one *.afs file

dir /b /o /s *.adx>[name of the list]


2. Step: Convert the *.adx files back to one *.afs file:

AFSLNK [name of the list] [name of the new *.afs file]


but it doesn't work. Is there another way, better another programm to do this?

Please help, THX

Use this to put .ADX files into .AFS files that the Dreamcast can read.

One more thing...
You won't want to use Wav2adx. It makes terrible quality and fuzzy scratching sounds in your music. You need to use ADXENCD to get good quality ADX files.

I use AFSlnk to make AFS files, and it has always worked fine.

Take care,

Please Help!!!

Like my other friends up there i got the dvd9 version of 50 Cent Bulletproof, but this game is is a little bit more the my 4.7g Dvd can, like 2 gigs over. Please someone help on how to fit this game into a 4.7G DVD without loosing nice things like Music Videos; I like the idea of downsampling the songs format but the only problem is, I can't seem to find anywhere on how to do this kind of stuff...Please HELP I WANT TO PLAY THIS GAME!!!

Metropolis Street Racer has some seriously hard protection, so if it is for that game I wouldn't bother.

Bero's adx decoder is terrible for any sample rate other than 44100. I use one called ADX_Converter.exe

And yes, use adxencd.

I wrote my own AFS Linker, get it from my webpage. You will need to create an ALS with it though. My AFS Extractor creates an ALS automatically of the extracted files. If you need adxencd it's included in my ADX Loop Calculator.
