Extract audio files

Postby F_Slim » Tue Jan 18, 2005 11:54 am

Hi there,
I remember that there used to be a program with which you could extract the audio files from I'76 (located in i76.zfs).
I tried two game-extraction-softwares ("GAP" ("Game Audio Player") and "Game-Editor"). They both find the WAV-files, but I can't use them if I extract them.
So maybe I need a special extract-program, or I need a special program to convert the WAV-files.
Thanks for any help on this!

PS: Interstate'76 is still one of my favorite games ever created!!!

The first one is untested on the Interstate .zfs. The second claims "100% working support".

I just Googled for these links so dont ask me any technical questions about exctracting files because i have no idea.

Im sure someone around here does though. :)

Some bloke had a website with a Civ2:Call to Power unpacker on it. I remember using it to unpack i82 files. I also remember RedFive got him to write another util for i82 useage. The details, like most of my life, are long forgotten, however.

Try this one. If you want to extract from a zfs other than i76,zfs or nitro.zfs then I believe you have to rename it either of those.

A lot easier to use than jwzfs as I recall.

Thanks for all your answers guys. The programs all work, but I still can't play the wav-files. I always get an error like "This is not a known sound-file".
I even tried to import them into GoldWave, but it doesn' really work. All I get is a very distorted sound ...
Any ideas? Is it because I have the Gold-Edition?

I never had that problem :roll: I used Sound Recorder and and Cool Edit 96 though. This was also back when I was on Windows 98 on a different computer. I've got a small list of sound files if you want them already extracted. I can FTP them to you if you want.

I just tried all of the programs linked except for Pack76, and none of them work with Nitro Pack, even Pack77. The thing is that I wanted to see if tinkering with the click sound file would keep the game from freezing in XP on some computers since it seems to be the road block for most people. Oh well. :?
