How would I open Heroes IV .dat files?

Postby Xdarkon » Mar 27 2014, 10:28

I've tried to look at tutorials but I never managed to make it work :baby:

Anyone extracted the contents of the dat files or know how?

So after extracting all the sound files I tried playing them but it says the length of the file is "0:00" and I can't play it. Would you know what that is about?

First they extracted into SEQ files which I tried to play with VLC, so then I got an updated version which extracted them as MP3's which I tried with the Windows media player, classic, Winamp, VLC.
