That's surprising considering that DICE helped out on the weapon sounds.

Yeah, dunno how it was pulled either, but it typically follows the format of content/0000000000000000/eight-digit number with letters/00080000 - which is why I won't be able to do anything with this I think.

Vire, did it ever look like that when you took it out within those four folders, and you just took the content of the last folder?

Weapon sounds and sounds in general are leagues ahead of the last games.

The .rar worked fine for me, but I was (apparently) one of the lucky few who got it from the original dropbox link.

Yeah, what I got was nothing at all like that, I think this is either missing files/directories or something weird is specific to this demo.

Anyone have a good guide for how you typically rip a demo off the 360? I'll try again recompiling if you guys can help.

how did you ripped it?

It's structure looks like a content that can't be shared (XBLA games, etc).

edit: I just saw the demo sharing thread, and it's working. So its not the case. Must be something wrong with your procedure.
edit 2: oh... I just realized that you just plugged the USB stick in your PC and copied the content? It will not work. You need a specific software to rip the content.

Alright, what is the software I need? (I'm running Lion OSX)

Edit: Couldn't you rip the content since it's the same file I would be ripping?

I peaked just for a second and the graphics are a huge step up over 3. The motion blur really adds a lot too. I just hope that's intact on the PS3 version since it's a huge part of the visual makeup of ME3 and I don't know of any UE3 games with motion blur on PS3.

Just go back when he started. I'm going to watch that. I was hoping since I am at my parents house this weekend; that someone would fine a somewhat feasible way to get this through but it doesn't seem like it anymore but whatever. I'll just watch this guy play.

I don't know if the structure is locked to your console id. I'll try just copy the content.

What's the size of pendrive you used? 4gb?

I don't believe that has an effect on sound.

Anyway I used incinerator ammo on all weapons in the ME3 demo and they still sounded weak (except the shotgun).

Maybe I'm just crazy.

In other news, those Reaper SFX are possibly the best SFX I've ever heard in a game.

Well. I managed to reproduce the exactly structure in my pen drive. I used a 4gb stick and formatted in the X360 as 2GB. Trying to copy right now.

If it not be recognized in my X360, I still can try to rip the content via USBXTAFGUI.
