Hello! Maybe someone can help me with this one.

I've been trying to extract these .abk files from Medal of Honor Frontline without luck, using PSound helped a little bit but it didn't recognize all the sound files inside the bank file, just a few of them that i could convert to .wav.
The NFS abk decoder (by id-daemon) shows the number of files inside the sound bank but then crashes. Now there's where my knowledge end's. I was wondering if someone can make a decoder/extractor or some kind of tool to extract the sound files. I'm attaching some sample files for anyone who might want to give me a hand!

Help would be much appreciated!! Thanks!!

This .ABK files (banks) provided contain 2 types of audio: the standard VAG codec for effects and EA-XA for voices, which is also very common.

For VAG Use my VAG scanner here viewtopic.php?p=12703#p12703

It will autodetect and split all small files in these banks.
After that you can make headers for them with VGMtoolbox and convert with vgmstream

For EA-XA you have to find something yourself, i dont have time to make tools now.

Thank you very very much for your reply!! I've found your post very useful! Any idea of what tool i could use to extract EA-XA files? Maybe Ealayer3?

sx.exe can decode that codec, but you have to split files somehow

So first i'll have to split (extract them?) the files in order to convert them, right? So that's out of my range right now, i was able to extract the .vag files but with this ones, got no idea how to do it!
Maybe in another moment, if you have time, you could help me with some tool or something like that! Thanks for your advise anyway, you've been very helpful!

Greetings!
