Hi there,

i wanted to extract the spoken samples from DOTT via scummrev, but a problem occured: when exploring the monster.sou, the only sound files shown and playable are the normal soundeffects like "swoosh", "bang" and so on. (except the last one which is a sentence from one of the FBI-Guys).

So, does anyone have an idea how to extract the talking ? It would be awesome to get Hoagieīs voice on my PC!

BTW: I have the german version of the game..

You may want to try different versions of Scumm Revisited and see if you get any better results. Some versions did some things better.

Well, I tried, but scummrev 3 is not available and the prerelease 5 doesnīt seem to solve the problem either.

I wonder if iīm the only one with that problem?

ScummRev 2 can play them, for the english version anyway. The German version shouldn't be any different. All voices and effects are in the CREA blocks and can be played.

Hmmm, there is only one crea block containing speech, the one I mentioned before. But thereīs an unknown block ("????"), which maybe contains the voices? When I switch into hex mode, scummrev describes this block as an VCTL; nevertheless, i canīt open it.

The German monster.sou must have a slightly different format then. Or perhaps the file is damaged.

The problem is solved: I used the sou to mp3 compress tool to convert the whole file into one audio track. Of course this is not the best method (i have to search and cut out the wanted pieces now - horrible work) but itīs better than nothing.

Thanks for your help, though!
