It's a little mean to use Linux users. It has outdated SO files and I'm still looking for a solution to uncompress the sound files. But other than that .. it's good.

I'll post eventually if I find a work around/patch ;).

Ok ... I managed to finally extract that file using WINE and UHARC GUI v2.0.

Linux Users:
Do you want a tar.bz ... or ... you just want to use WINE and UHARC GUI?

I've just tried installing this now on OS X. Of course, I can't run the application to extract the sound files from the cryptic archive, as the binary is Win32. I can't seem to find a regular install of dday on the DDC any more, making it impossible to install on *nix. Would be nice if this could be fixed.

What all do you need just the sounds? I had to use winDOZE to get it to work.

It's alright, I managed to get the files using an emulator.

I'm not sure this method of compression is very good. Isn't something lost when it's converted to mp3? I swear the radio recording on invade one sounded a bit more, glitchy, than I remembered it.

Oh, and I found the original installer. It's under Downloads. I was looking for Files. I've been out of the system too long, lol. Although, the only version of the British expansion is an EXE.

I was sure there would be some loss, but I looked into it today when I noticed a blip playing invade1.

Listen to these two clips:
http://stormwolf.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/f ... -1-old.wav
http://stormwolf.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/f ... -1-new.wav

While this new compression method does do amazing things, the loss is noticeable. Also, the original version is 284KB. The version that has been compressed is 512KB. That's twice what it should be! This means that if the files were ever compressed again, it would become even worse. I'm not sure it's worth it for the 5 minute download it saves...

If size is really an issue, you should look at the 7-zip format. It saves about 10MB on the original mod download.

If I ever update the zip, I will just compress the wavs that don't have compression problems like that. I know there's a skip in the tank on soviet1 too. But overall I don't think there are many noticeable problems.

Can you use 7zip and tell me what size all those files compress to? If it's close to 150 megs then I will definitely use that instead.

Audio files do not compress, becasue there is no logical sequence to their data.

I unzipped a copy of your ddayfull.zip, and leaving the audio in mp3 format, I repacked everything into 7-zip format. The original is 150.2MB, the 7-zip is 107.2MB. That's pretty impressive.

I'll make an update then just to rezip it. Anyone have any suggestions for what should be added or bug fixes? Or does anyone want their cfg added? I'll update it next weekend.
