That's possible. I already changed rick's strpack once because it couldn't pack some files. But why do you want xbox .strs unpacked? They probably contain the same sounds as on PC or not?

p.s. Is it really forbidden to upload any file samples here on xentax? Because I see people still upload them in new threads.

Oh, don't mind that mate. It's just because I always prefered to extract sounds from .xma files because it's pretty easier for me (it's my point of vue of course). I'm just curious to know if you ever modified Rick's StrUnpack.exe because if you did that I hope you could help me to unpack .str archives from Xbox360. Anyway... It's not the priority.

Hum... I think it's forbidden to give/share direct content from games at some points. Personaly, I always give a hex view of a file to avoid any problem with moderators.

Last thing, I've got Dead Space 1,2,3 on my PC and I would help with filenames but I don't know how to proceed. Can you tell me how you did with more details? Plus, I don't know if filenames offsets are the same for PS3 and Xbox360 users.

Alright, here's why.

XBox version of .str stores some files with another compression method than on PC. Probably lzx. So to unpack it, we need to find out what the compression is, and add code to unpack it.

I see but, however, your tool ds2_sbk.exe doesn't work on Xbox360 .sbk files so it's a lost cause because I doubt that many people would help about lzx compression. I'm sorry but I can't deal with compressions. I could help for filenames and .xma files but nothing more.

I can make it work on them, but unless we can unpack them from .str, its useless.

There's no universal method for filenames. You just need to find them or guess them somehow. I was able to do that for sound files, because all their names were stored in .smb files. But I don't know where to search for the remaining names.

Alright, but I need the bigfile1,2,3,etc... filenames. How do I get them if I can't recognize a single file in those archives? (no .filenames file)

Most likely Xbox360 has the compression on all files including potential filenames file so there is very little that can be done until solve compression first.

Here are the current filelists. But I think there's no need to find anything more. The only names left unidentified are 19 videos (with no sound) and a couple of text files. I doubt they are even used in the game.

Sorry to be bumping an old-ish topic, but I'm trying to extract music from a game (Godfather 2 PC) that uses the .STR file format, which I believe may be similar to what Dead Space is using. I tried Rick's Visceral tool, but the StrUnpacker reports that it's reading in too much header information. Did someone say they had a modified version of the tool?

That was about sound tool, not rick's tool.

Ah, ok. Well if anyone has any knowledge in these archive formats, I could really appreciate the help. :)

There are 2 unknown files in bigfile0 and 1. Are those sound files or just some useless text files?

Also I have 105 unknowns in the audiostreams folder of DS2.

105 unknowns is because you used old filelists. I posted them somewhere dont remember where.

Those in 0 and 1 are NOT sounds.
