The Sims 2 GC/PS2/.ARC files/sims2_arc.bms/sims2_gc.bms dont seem to work.

Hi.

I am trying to get the audio out of the ARC files from The Sims 2 on the GC/PS2 but I keep getting a error when using the already existing bms scripts found elsewhere online.

sims2_arc.bms/sims2_gc.bms

Does anyone know how to either fix this or help extract the contents? Would be appreciated as I can't found much else about this online.

Screenshot and files linked below:

audio.arc files: (The Sims 2 & The Urbz use the same container format, both in here,

This script will do the GameCube archive:

# The Sims 2 - GameCube .arc extractor
# By Dave, 2019

Endian Big

Goto 0x10
Get ENTRIES Long

For A = 1 to ENTRIES

Get JUNK Long
Get OFFSET Long
Get SIZE Long
Get FILENAME String
String FILENAME + ".dsp"
Get JUNK Long
Get JUNK Long

Log FILENAME OFFSET SIZE

Next A

Thanks DKDave. Only just seen this now as I haven't been on here in a while.

It turns out there was a script for The Sims Busting Out that did the trick for The Sims 2 Console as it uses the same archives.

Cheers
