Club Penguin - Elite Penguin Force (music)
« on: January 12, 2018, 09:16:21 pm »
Hi, I'm trying to extract music from the Nintendo DS game Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force. I opened the .nds file in VGMTrans, but only saw the following soundtracks: SEQ_GENERAL, SEQ_FRIENDS, SEQ_CHAT, SEQ_AVATAR. None of them are recognizable. There should be many more soundtracks (see here), but I couldn't find them.

I also tried using ndssndext (NDS Sound Extractor) and VGMToolbox's NDSTo2SF tool, but no luck. However, I used DSBuff to unpack the contents of the game and found "music.bin" and "sfx.bin" in the "sound" directory. Can music be extracted from these .bin files?

I would like to avoid converting the music from YouTube videos because of audio quality loss due to YouTube's compression. I would also like to avoid the tedious process of recording music straight from the game. Those are the reasons why I want to extract music instead.

Also, here is the game's file tree:
