Drakan Order of the Flame Sound Effects and OST?

I'm looking for the ENTIRE soundeffects library and OST Playlist for something I'm working on that is Drakan related. I can't find any of it in the files for the game, and i'm not a powergamer or a coder, just a guy who likes drawing. I also have no way of recording audio only.

If anyone here can help, that you. :D

Hi,

This should help you http://www.arokhslair.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2721 I have the soundtrack but no sound effects - Ill have a look at seeing if they can be extracted from the game's archive files. I used Psound to extract audio from the PS2 game DVD.

I don't have any other idea besides installing the editing tools, opening the Level Editor, then the level from which you want sounds, opening the Databases window (Window->Databases), then playing each individual sound under Sound tab and recording it with external software (Audacity comes to mind, there might also be something already available in Windows). There's no export option for sounds like it is for textures.

Sounds are stored in *.sdb files (Sound database) as regular *.wav, but it's proprietary format which nobody ever bothered to reverse engineer, so their content can only be heard with Level Editor as I mentioned above AFAIK.

This is exactly how I used to record the sound effects. Just point your recording software to your output on your computer. Make sure everything else is muted. Press record, play sound, stop recording software. Save file. That's the only way to do it unless we can enable to export features on the editor.

You should be able to record whatever is coming out of your soundcard with Audacity's WASAPI loopback fearure.

Oh I see! So De Profundis would you use audacity guides to manage sound record perfectly? I think it's one of the best record editor so I wanna try to download it on my computer.

There's no need for any such crude workarounds anymore.

Now we have BuXXe's DB Reader tool which can export the sound files directly out of the Drakan databases as .wav files.

BuXXe also made an experimental RRC reader tool which allows extracting the game music from the Music.RRC file. That tool is floating around on the Discord channel, so if you also want the music then you'll need to ask around over there.
