HCl Develops Sega CD Voice Extractor Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

HCl took a break from investigating the 3DO file formats to dig into the Sega CD/Megadrive. His preliminary work has already produced a utility that allows extraction of Sega CD speech! WC1 on Sega CD includes full spoken dialogue in place of the original game's subtitles. Try out the test release of SegaRIP here (7 k zip). If you don't have a Sega CD disc hanging around, HCl has posted audio samples from each of the pilots at his Editing Site. Now the challenge: what enterprising Wing Commander modder's going to create a speech add-on patch for Wing Commander 1?
I have been playing with my old Sega Megadrive a bit as well, so I ended up making a small detour and looking at the Wing Commander Sega CD files. Long story short, things went better than expected, so was able to quickly make an extractor for Sega CD speech! You can find my little SegaRIP utility here. Open your cmd window and type something like: segarip RIG.DAT

Please keep in mind that there may be a few voices in the game that are not extracted properly. I'm still looking into that. However, I decided to release a first version of this extractor since it does seem to work well for the large majority of speech in the game, so it could still be useful as is.

Cool stuff! This little adventure made me appreciate the Sega CD port of WC1 a bit more.
