[PC] Persona 4 Golden Opening Lyrics

In order to familiarize my self with some of the basic tools I need for FMV modding (the anime cutscenes) I decided to make a quick version of the golden opening with lyrics. I also filtered this opening using vapoursynth as the base FMVs look very blocky and compressed however this results in a higher file size. After this I plan to filter every FMV using vapoursynth in order to get rid of as much noise and blockiness as I can but that might take up to a week as there is a lot of encoding to do.


  1. Download my mod from the link above and the tools from this github
  2. Extract the folders somewhere convenient to you
  3. Go to your Persona 4 Golden installation then drag and drop movie00002.pac into Multi Extractor.exe, it should make a folder named movie00002 you will use this soon
  4. Open up the Pac Editor executable
  5. Drag and drop p4ctop3_e.usm from my mod into the white box as well as all the files you extracted using Multi Extractor.exe except p4ctop3_e.usm
  6. All of the text in the white box should now be red now just hit save and choose somewhere to save the new .pac
  7. After making sure you back up your old .pac drag and drop the newly created one into your persona 4 golden folder and overwrite it
  8. You should now have lyrics on the opening

What encoding settings/application did you use? I've been trying to match the encoding settings of the original file with ffmpeg and vlc with no avail.

I didn't actually try matching the originals but instead tried to improve on it a little bit. I personally used this

Code: Select all

ffmpeg  -i input.mkv  -i input2.wmv -map 0:0 -b:v 30000k -vcodec wmv2 -map 1:1 -map 1:2 -acodec copy -shortest -qscale:v 1 out.wmv
It takes mkv file and encodes that into the format this game works with... after that I take the original .wmv file and just copy over the audio tracks as I don't want to encode audio twice. -qscale:v 1 is the big one as from what I can see that is what allows the video to look much better than the originals.

Ah thanks! I don't plan on using the original audio but I imagine encoding that to the right format can't be too hard. I'll convert my current video into mkv and see if that works.

Trying to run the command I get "Stream map '1:2' matches no streams." I'm thinking this is because I'm not using the original.wmv file but a modified one with the same encoding, but I'm not sure.

Try to re encode the mod and downscale it to 720p and it works well on Vita Version

Thanks for the mod btw :D Image

How did you convert the video raw files? (That extracted from usm files)
