Far Cry 4 Audio/Music(.sbao/.spk)

Post by RayTrace77 » Sat Nov 29, 2014 9:15 pm

Hi There,

I am looking for a particular song from the game, I have managed to get a rough copy from the game which I uploaded onto YouTube here: ...

Have been trying to get the music from this game for a while but not had much luck, have used "Oggdec" and DecUbiSnd but a number of files it is unable to work with, Oggdec can convert some of the .sbao files but not all, DecUbiSnd can barely handle the .spk files, out of a folder of say 40 it picked 1, showed around 4 streams but when played it was just static. I have unpacked a number of the .dat/fat files only to come to the same result. I have also tried DragonUnpacker with the Hyperripper function but nothing.

most .dat/fat files, when unpacked, have a folder called "soundbinary" in it, in there is sometimes .sbao or .spk, aside from that folder I don't know where else to look for audio.

Inside the "common.dat" file in /soundbinary there is a file called "2fffffff.spk" which is 26MB, much larger then the others, however DecUbiSnd is unable to handle it and am interested to know what it is, I have uploaded the file to the link below:

If anyone can help that would be greatly appreciated.


Nevermind, figured it out in the end and got the song, took bloody ages though.

It could be good for the others (starters) to tell how you managed to find a solution. So, please, tell us what was your solution for that.
