Software for ripping out video game music from CDs?

Post by Kingpin » 17. Mar 2019, 14:44

I have a few CDs I'd really like to get the audio from, but they store their music in some one huge file that apparently stuff like Dragon Unpacker can't detect. Perhaps some of you have experience with this and would like to recommend something?

Asunder or K3b, both work very well.

I know how to rip audio CDs haha. I'm looking for extract the songs from a file with a custom format. I've tried Dragon unpacker and others and none of them can touch it. If someone wants to take a crack at this, here's the file (two files, actually): https://upload.disroot.org/r/qXlfI_Qu#x ... k40+tY5Vc=

I downloaded a file named music.zip via the link provided. It is actually an extractable ZIP file that contains two files:
music.DKX
and
music.DKD

Through a Google search, I found out:
.DKX -- DART Karaoke Author Document
.DKD -- JBK Karaoke Data

Gslapt says to karaoke:
libkate (a karaoke and text codec for embedding in ogg)

Maybe this information already helps!

There are hints on karaoke players on the web, also warned that many are contaminated.
The only direct indication in the short time was: Dart Karaoke Studio http://www.dartpro.com/

I could be wrong, but I don't think you'll find any linux software that could open this proprietary format.

Thanks for the help. This was a false lead by the way. Tried a bunch of other programs like Dragon Unpacker and Ravioli Game Tools - still nothing but a bunch of false leads.

Then I found a program called quickbms which had a script specific for this game (Submarine Titans), and it did extract the archive but I don't know what to do with the resulting files. Linux tells me they are "TGA images" but that's impossible since there must be music there. And GIMP can't open them anyway. TrID (http://mark0.net/soft-trid-e.html) says the files are "unknown".

Once again, if someone would care to tackle this, here's one of the files (the biggest one - 12MB): https://upload.disroot.org/r/7uDGDh4d#z ... 2hGHbdk+I=

Hey, I was surprised Linux doesn't even have a program for video game extraction at all, while Windows has a bunch.
