Extracting audio from The Wolf Among Us

Post by mikaelN7 » Mon Oct 14, 2013 10:13 pm

I used Aluigi's tool Telltale TTARCH file extractor to extract wavs but they are unreadable. I've used this tool before for The Walking Dead but it seems Telltale uses a different filetype now (TTARCH2.) I'm not sure that's causing the issue.

On his site it says "The Wolf Among Us remember to use the -m option which allows to dump the FONT and D3DTX files as DDS and the AUD as OGG but do NOT use this option if you plan to rebuild the ttarch archive!."

This is what I am doing:

Code: Select all

C:\ttarchext.exe -m 54 "C:\fables_pc_fables101_ms.ttarch2" C:\output
The wav files are of all different sizes so at first glance it seems like they extracted properly but they won't play in any programs. Any ideas?

Upload one of the extracted files from the tool.

They should be Vorbis in an OGG container and not WAV according to how the tool works.

I guess you are referring to the FSB4 files, the wav files are just FSB archives that you can extract with fsbext.
Try it

This works! Each wav contains one mp3 file, but fsbext is only letting me choose one file at a time. There are over 5k wavs, is there a way to extract from all of them?

OGG is exactly what I was expecting. Here is an example of what the tool extracts: http://speedy.sh/6Scvn/295744826.wav

The tool Aluigi mentioned (fsbext) extracts an mp3 from the wav, which is perfect. But I just need to find a way to convert all the wavs. I tried a batch or other tools but they also only allow one .fsb to be unpacked.

Try that command line in the batch file:

Code: Select all

for %%i in (*.fsb) do "%CD%\fsbext.exe"  %%i
pause
The fsbext.exe has to be in the same folder as the .bat file and .fsb file. This command will dump any .fsb in that folder, so put all the .fsb files in it and you're ready to go.

Thanks a ton, listening to the files now.
