Rayman 3 ADPCM audio

Post by Droolie » Tue May 02, 2006 12:22 pm

Hello,

I would like some help with this.
I managed to extract some .wav files from Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc - Pc version. ( the data.hst file )
I released a codec finder program on it, and it said it was ADPCM.
I can't play ADPCM audio! I need a converter or something like that!
I attached one of the files with this post.
Can anybody try to find out how they can be played?

Looks like the audio of king kong, the decoders identify the data like Ms-adpcm but can't convert

At the moment i have no idea how to reconvert it

Even VLC can't play it. So this file must be really corrupt.

I do not believe the file to be (fully) corrupt. When visualized, the data shows distinct patterns (see attachment). There is no sign of a compression I am familiar with, but it is quite definitely not the IMA variant of ADPCM -- at least not directly. On the other hand, I have not seen enough samples of MS ADPCM to be able to identify this method.

Also note the regular distances between areas with minimum and maximum values -- possibly chunk borders?
