MM7: How to extract all the sounds?

Unread postby dat_ugly_dude » 18 Feb 2024, 22:30

Hi forum, newcome here!

I have successfully used mmarch to extract images and various event information from the game resources. I can find the game music, too. I would like to retrieve the game sounds: clicks, magic, monster effects. Is there a way to do it?

There is a file SOUNDS/Audio.snd, but I do not the format of the file. It does seem to contain .wav files. This is some of the first bytes output:

```

So it seems to be some sort of sounds database with the actual data following sound names/metadata?

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

I use GrayFace MMAchive. Open MMAchive and drag and drop the file Audio.snd into MMAchive. Then find the sounds you want and drag and drop out of the achive into any folder. If it doesn't work, you have an old version of the program.

Thanks a lot David for the quick response! I could get the sound effects out of the file via:

Code: Select all

./mmarch.exe extract Audio.snd extracted_sound/
produced 2518 files, including, as a sample:

Code: Select all

$ ls extracted_sound/
