Re: Saints Row 2 XWB compressed wave

Would your planned tool also work on replacing adpcm and xma? I wasn't able to find the cell phone calls that happen in-game and I'm wondering if maybe they are in adpcm or wma format instead of wav and I just missed them when extracting/looking with unxwb a while back. Yes, replacing adpcm and xma...

Re: Saints Row 2 XWB compressed wave

Hey! It's an excellent game with shoddy code. Hopefully they'll put more effor into the PC version of Saints Row 3. XD I'd say Dreamfall: The Longest Journey was the worst port. The mouse X-axis is backwards with no way to change it. So, so, SO annoying!!!! :'( Yeah, very good for us. Tropico 3 uses...

Re: Saints Row 2 XWB compressed wave

There really aren't that many phone calls in SR2 (compared to, say, GTA4). They could theoretically be in any XWB file. Ones that are part of a mission are probably in cutscenes. The rest are probably in VOC_SP. I need to get xWMA support into my code so I can get that SR2_CUTSCENES extracted. Then ...

Re: Saints Row 2 XWB compressed wave

I'd guess phone calls are somewhere in audio.vpp_pc. The Gen X radio station, for some reason, is in audio.vpp_pc instead of the music#.vpp_pc file.

Re: Saints Row 2 XWB compressed wave

So I was basically trying to decompress an xWMA file?

I always take the hard way because it the most fun. XD

Re: Blur [PC version] - unknown audio format (headerless)

Did you try throwing a RIFF WAVE header on it and see what it sounds like?

Re: Saints Row 2 XWB compressed wave

I think it uses a combination of compression and encryption. That is, it compresses x amount of data and then losslessly encrypts it to y block size (1487 and 929 for sure). The compression itself could be as simple as zlib inflate (the SR2 exe has references to it) but I have no idea on the encrypt...

Re: Saints Row 2 XWB compressed wave

This new section of the XWB (apparently unique to Saints Row 2) I call "CompressionInfo" has been described: int[FileCount] compress_array_offset_from_end_of_this_array; // if -1, File is not compressed // at each offset int count; int[count] uncompressed_begin_offset; For example, compress_array_of...

Re: Saints Row 2 XWB compressed wave

All WMA files start with 0500, 0600, or 0700. The ones that are obviously music actually have the first 17 bytes match. It would make sense if their uncompressed headers matched therefore causing a large chunk of the compressed data match. So I guess my question is this: What types of compression su...

Re: Petition to Ubisoft to release a DRM-free version of BG&E2

But that's the pickle. If we boycott them, they'll just abandon Windows/Mac development altogether and only develop for consoles. They need to prove to themselves (and they'll do so reluctantly) that DRM is losing sales and in turn, losing money. If they can double their profits by abandoning DRM, t...
