EMI Voice Files

Is there any way to extract the voice files from EMI, short of turning off the music and holding a microphone up to the speakers? Thanks!

Not currently, but if you have Soundblaster Live, you can easily record the voices. If you go into the master volume -> options -> Recording, then you can check a option called 'What you hear' or something similar. It's the first tab.

Now, you can open a recording program, press record, open CMI, and turn down the music and soundvolume, and then you can only get voices.

This won't really be of any help, but still:
I once made a wve->wav converter for the EMI voice files that was heavily based on ScummRevisited code to decompress Grim Fandango sounds. Sadly I lost the code to it along with other SCUMM stuff...
AFAIK the EMI files have a slightly different structure but it shouldn't be too hard. I would make it myself but I've got nearly no spare time these days.

Unfortunately, I have the experience of a well trained weasel as far as it comes to comes to computers. I wouldn't know where to begin doing what you suggest. Thanks for the info, though.

I don't have SB Live, but I do have another program called Creative Recorder that lets me write to .wav whatever's coming out of the speakers. It'll take a bit of editing to get just the sounds I want, but I guess it'll be worth it for certain ones. Thanks again.

If you mean the tool, yes it worked with all the files I tested it with.

You can use the EMI Resourse Viewer to extract the sounds from EMI. The links are in the Readme First thread.
