Do you happen to have some EA/Electronic Arts (BlackBox) tools for .mad files?
Check out these sites:
https://wiki.sc4devotion.com/index.php?title=MAD
https://wiki.multimedia.cx/index.php/El ... ts_Formats
https://wiki.multimedia.cx/index.php?ti ... c_Arts_MAD

You can read there
FFmpeg can display and convert MAD files.
Thank you very much. Big help for me
I will check it out.
Edit:
It seems to work with FFmpeg.
But how do I get the extension to .mad? It doesn't let me save as source format.
Also I can't seem to replace the audio file, maybe I have to look further into the program.

To be honest, I don't know.

As you can see on these sites
https://ffmpeg.org/doxygen/1.0/eamad_8c.html
https://ffmpeg.org/doxygen/1.0/eamad_8c-source.html

there is decoder defined, but there is no encoder.
I'm not an expert on video stuff, so I am not sure how to write such encoder. :wink:

Ok. Thanks anyway.
Maybe someone else knows more.
I saw threads like this on some SimCity forums, but no further success.

I can provide a dumy file for purpose. The batch automation is work in progress...

Edit: I couldn't attach the plain bik file so I had to compress it as a rar file
