Well that's fantastic progress. Certainly its a bit distorted but clearly you can here what it is meant to be. Do you reckon you'll be able to get it sounding a little clearer?

Cheers,
Fudge

I've tried a few options, but the standard ones using GENH don't seem to be right. So, if someone can work out what the right codec should be, then it'll be easier.

Here's a few raw files extracted from bla01.scw to see if anyone can get them to play correctly (maybe I have start offset wrong, but I think they're right).

Hello again,

Ah right. Thanks so much for what you have done. Its tantalising close though! Fingers crossed some clever clogs comes along and manages to finish off the last part to get these audio clips in their original quality.

Cheers,
Fudge

Really very interesting format. And most likely coded by developers. I think you can look for the unpacked version in the dump of the game after launch.

In the dump, I managed to find the unpacked textures when, as in all files except fro03.scw, they are packed.

So this dump may help decode the audio files potentially?

Hello again,

I just wanted to bump this just in case some clever bugger fancies taking this one on for me. I would but my brain is too small.

Cheers,
