Tony Hawk's Project 8 .XMA Files

Post by ENunn » Mon Jan 25, 2021 7:03 pm

I've been trying to convert these audio files from the 360 version of Project 8 and for the life of me I can't get it working.

I initially extracted the file from an .fsb archive that the game uses with FSB Extractor. It extracted correctly and wrote a WAVE header.

FFMPEG detects the file as a "adpcm_ima_wav"

For the conversion to .wav, I tried QuickBMS with the XMA transform script and it threw me up this error:

Code: Select all

No XMA code found at designated offset (20).  Aborting all operations.
I tried vgmstream, nothing happens. Then I use VGMGUI, a vgmstream GUI, and it threw me this:

Tried ToWav, nothing happens at all.

Anyone know how to convert this? Here's a sample. ... dyrms-z0qM

It looks to me that there's a couple of issues with the .wav file:

Firstly, the codec is listed as 0x69 - it should be 0x165 for XMA, which is why you get "XMA code not found" error.
Secondly, the header is shorter than it should be - for XMA the header should be 0x3c bytes, where the audio data starts.

I can play the audio with a .txth file, so it's definitely XMA.

Did you extract the files from an archive first? If so, could you upload it, unless it's too big.

EDIT: Just noticed you mentioned an FSB archive - you should be able to drop that archive straight into Foobar and it should play with the vgmstream plugin.
