Title: Ogg conversion from .WEM files
Post by: Gavroche93 on 2017-11-08 07:17:15
Trying to extract sound files from Witcher 3. I used quick bms to unpack the sound cache files, which resulted in a bunch of bnk and wem files. I managed to convert the bnk files in ogg using wwise unpacker, then used a standard audio converter (Pazera) to convert from ogg to wav. I tried the same with the wem files, even followed https://forum.xentax.com/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=7792&start=15 instructions (https://imgur.com/a/25lSD), but the cmd process stops after a couple of lines and no ogg files were created (https://imgur.com/a/5QyS9). Do these wem files have a specific type of encrypting like the bnk ones? And if so, what can i do to convert them?

Google is your friend:

How about these instructions (https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/95552-converting-wem-to-ogg-for-sound-mods-tutorial/)?

I think ww2ogg (https://github.com/hcs64/ww2ogg/releases) is what you need.

I swear you should be able to do this with ffmpeg but perhaps it is beyond even the program that can play anything.

VGMStream now has native support for WEM archives, so you don't even need to convert them to Ogg files to play them.

Yup, this is what I've used before.

Btw there's a TW3-specific guide for wem to ogg conversion here (https://forums.cdprojektred.com/forum/en/the-witcher-series/the-witcher-3-wild-hunt/mod-discussions/56938-tutorial-sound-extraction-and-basic-modding).
