Quoted from gabegabegabe:
For Metallica, I didn't expect song fragments to be the same size as the control song.
?What? What is the same size about them? The fragments are just snippets of the full length song and not as long (time wise).
Most songs on Metallica have 2 locations that have full length versions of the song.
Ex: Sad But True has 2 full length locations (0x22D and 0x23B). The 0x22D location has 1 sound request pointing to it (Request 839) and the 0x23B location has 3 requests pointing to it (95, 853 and 854).
I think I understand how the sound locations work with sound requests. I also understand that replacing a full length song that has many fragments is used to make up the smaller sound fragments. What I don't understand is why there are 2 or 3 full length versions of the same song in the software...when replacing 1 seems to take the place of all of the full length locations as well as the smaller sound "fragments" that are in the software.
It seems that this is using up a lot of room that it doesn't need to.....unless these repeat full length song locations are just placeholders......maybe for live versions to be added later?
Another guess would be that the 2 complete, full length song locations may be "fragmented" differently. Meaning that even though they are both showing as having 12 fragments....maybe their fragment breaks are in different locations on each of the full length songs.
