Hi,

For years I was hoping to find some tool that can extract the speeches in the game Need for Speed Carbon. Because in the game there are 2 voice actors I like and would like to make a ringtone for my phone of it and of course so I can also use for other things like alarm.

From what it seems like, I think these speech the format abk nor gin files.

Unless I am looking wrong, I think the files are here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Need for Speed Carbon\SOUND\SPEECH

From the size, the only 2 files that I think contains all the speeches are in the file:
copspeech.big

But other smaller size file is 2MB which could also have something:
ucapaudio.big

But I tried various tools to extract without any luck, does anyone know how I can extract it?

Thank you

"big" is usually an extension used in EA games and covered by this script:
http://aluigi.org/bms/ea_big4.bms

I doubt the format is the same so feel free to upload that ucapaudio.big (zip it first or upload it on mediafire)

How do I use this bms script on windows?

Here are the 2 files:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/azb351297 ... speech.big
http://www.mediafire.com/file/47hmm92xo ... paudio.big

I am not 100% sure if these are the files, I am looking for the sound speeches and talks during the gameplay. It is possible that they are located somewhere else.

It's an "SCHl" file that luckily has been already seen in the past and there are tools for it.
My suggestion is to search the following on google or other search engines for locating all the information and links:
"schl" site:zenhax.com

Check each topic carefully.

Hi thanks a lot for your quick response, I found it.

But it sounds like indeed as other comments said that the sound isnt clear it sounds like radio sound.

Is there a way to change that?

All the sounds are intended to be that way because of the game story and the way they speak trough the radio, cops and such, and no there is no way to change it, those are original files.
They use if I believe the "Electronic Arts MicroTalk" codec inside those big archive with .mus extension, and they're all mono/24000Hz at variable bitrates.
