Scrap XCC mixer, I finally found something better

You know how we have all been trying to get the videos and music from the Blade Runner PC game, well I found this program called VQA 2 AVI.

From my understanding the VQA files (Compressed in the .MIX files) contain all the movies and all the location backgrounds for the game and the AUD files (Also in the .MIX files) are all the music, sound effects and speech.

Yesterday I downloaded VQA 2 AVI and after playing around with the program for 30min or so I finally extacted the whole Blade Runner introduction movie off the game disc, actually extracting it took 50 long miniutes but now I have a 958mb .avi movie stored on my hard drive.
This program is really good because it also converts the sound to stereo without even asking you and also compresses the movies for you.

You can download it here:
www.fansiteads.com/tiberiumsun/download ... qa2avi.zip

Make sure when you start the program you tick the "Ask for compression algorithm" because otherwise it wont compress the movies and will fill your hard drive all the way up!

*NOTE* So far this program hasn't crashed on me yet so it should work for you

Which video codec did you choose from the list?
What ever you do dont choose "Full Frames Uncompressed"
I used a techsmith codec which I got from downloading that Camtasia studio thing.

KEEP TRYING! TRY ALL THE VIDEO CODECS FROM THE LIST!

By all means it should work, I mean my system specs are as followed:

AMD K6-2 500mhz Processor
256mb 72pin edo Ram
64mb Geforce 2 mx 100/200
Really old Asus P55T2P4 motherboard
$20.00 2 Channel Sound Card
Standard CD-ROM Drive
6 gig hard drive (Only have 1.78gigs left!)

Let me know how you go

*NOTE*
All the game endings can be found on the 4th Blade Runner disc
The big introduction movie is on the 1st disc
Heaps of the backgrounds from the game are spreaded out on all the disc's.

VQA2AVI---I found it myself this weekend. Extracted all the audio and video, but be warned: it converts the VQA video files to uncompressed AVI files (about 15 times the size of the VQA file).

The audio files are cool. Lots of music and sound effects. The video clips will make great reference material for the fan film we're working on.

You guy's are forgeting to tick "Ask for Compression" :x
Once you click OK it will ask you what video codec you want to use, "In my opinion use Indeo 5.10 it compresses the files very well and keeps the good quality too".

So far I've extracted EVERY video from the disc's I could find and ALL the sound effects but I'm not too keen on getting the speech files, there's over 500 in there :cry:

Ok, not sure if I'm doing everything right. I downloaded VQA 2 AVI. I then Open ->MUSIC, then click Open again.

Now I have filenames 001D04C3 etc, about 22 files. I click Ask for Compression algorithm. Then what? If I choose Convert a box comes up, and program crashes.

:(
