Title: Dreamcast ARC Files
Post by: Bob Liu on May 04, 2015, 10:30:04 am
Does anyone here know how to extract arc files on Dreamcast discs? I need to know how so I can compress the sound/voices files for a game. Any help?

Arc(hive) is a generic data file that could be anything. Game or developer-specifc. It's like asking how to extract sound from a SNES ROM. It's just a data blob and you need to reverse engineer the internal formats.

Yeah, I know. I'm just trying my luck to see if anyone here can help. Anyhow, the format that the files actually are in is SARC.
