Final Fantasy XIII Pc (Extract sound and menu files)

Post by akafa123 » Wed Oct 15, 2014 5:21 pm

I guess they are stored in sys folder, but files don't have headers at all, is there anyway to extract sound files and menu elements? I tried ps3 script, but no luck!

I managed to extract all files
And I know how to convert scd audio files to wav, but I can do it only for 1 file not multiple ones. Is there any way to convert all audio files just using one script?

Oh I found a way to play them throught foobar2000, just download it and download this component
http://www.foobar2000.org/components/vi ... _vgmstream (double click, apply)
Then just play all files from sound/pack in foobar

But I sitll don't know where all menu stuff is, I found fonts and background animations when you click Status in game, but there must be anything else...

1. Download vgmstream and its external DLL libraries from HCS here.
vgmstream
vgmstream external dll

2. Extract them both into the same folder.

3. Save the following into notepad with the extension .bat in the same folder with the test.exe

Code: Select all

FOR %%a IN (*.scd) DO test -l 2 -f 10 -o "%%a.wav" "%%a"
4. Run the batch file and it will convert them for you :)

For some reason, very few of these are able to be played in Foobar, even with the vgmstream codec. Hardly any of them work from what I got. I plan to rip the SFX and English voices, but anyway, here's an example: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Vs8f0a...gg2uINLDeU

So, can you help me?
