Hi all,
I would to know if there´s any wa to get my hand on the sound files of this game, and I don´t mean just the soundtrack. I mean all the dialogues and things guards or patrol men say during the game. I heard, apart from English, German, French, Arabic and Turkish and I would like to know the meaning of all this. Anybody can help on this?
Thanks in advance......

Yeah, good point. I'd like to get my hands on them, too. When jump-stealthing guards last night, I heard Altair speaking Arabic, and I'd like to know what he says..

Here's how they sound to my English-speaking ears:
1) way-hach
2) Allah-lwrist-lich

The ends of both have a kind of guttural, German-like sound to them.


EDIT: I've heard a couple more recently:
3) rrotolo-Allah-hech
4) tama-hal
5) ochra-ban-wajhee

I got a handy tool, in which you can upload nearl anything and you can extract any sound that's in it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
I'm trying it out on some data files of Assassin's Creed right now...

P.S. The tool I'm talking about is Audacity, completely free of course. It's also real handy for chopping sounds in pieces and stuff. Google it if you want it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Sorry, no succes http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

The data files which obviously have the audio in it, are decoded or something, as they are only filled with noise http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

It worked with Hitman: Blood Money, and I think you can also get the music from SNES games if you have the emulator files or something, but no luck with AC unfortunately

i kinda assumed they'd encrypt their files so som1 with free software couldn't grab em http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

maybe some hacker out there can do it hmmm?

Like I said, Hitman's files weren't excrypted http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Ubisoft is just more cautious http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

BTW, cracking a encrypted file would take, in theory, about 100 billion years http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif It's really a matter of luck

They seem to have created a new encoding method. Using a Hex Editor, I look at the beginnings of files to see what kind it is. This is especially useful when downloading ZIP files and such, potential trouble-makers. Lets me know more about what's going on before I proceed. Anyways.. When I looked at these files, the first characters in the file say "scimitar" which would mean it's completely proprietary.

FYI, the opening Hex characters of a ZIP file are "PK", and "%PDF" for a PDF file, and "RIFF...AVILIST" for an AVI file.. These things could tell you a lot.

drego thats not hex its a random text string generated using file coding basicaly its the computers way of representing the code that it canot understand since you will most likly be using a text editor. hex only inclues the nubers 0 to 9 and the letters A to F and normaly come in strings of 4 letters/numbers.

Okay, yeah, good point. Yes, the Hex is only 0-9 and A-F. So if a file is small, I use NotePad to see the first characters of the file, otherwise I use a freeware program called HexView (http://www.funduc.com/otsoft.htm#hexview), which on the left side shows the actual Hex of it, and on the right it shows the translation.

Therefore, I was also mistaken when I said Hex Editor, as this program only allows viewing. My bad.

So,
maybe we can gather all the sayings together, of all possible languages and try to find a translation for them!! Well, not the english ones but all the others maybe.....

The Prince of Persia sound files were encoded in .ogg, which can easily be imported into Audacity and converted into .wav or .mp3 for more common media players.

Is the data in AC spread out across folders or is it stored in a single, large file?

everything is storred in forge files that are probly a type of arcive that will most likly be encrypted.

Yea, Audacity can be really usefull sometimes http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Anyway, AC's audio is probably located in the .forge files, like caswallawn_2k7 already said. There are a lot of files, and a few say "Sound_eng" or something, maybe there's some way to extract the .forge files since their name suggest it consists of multiple file types which are "forged" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Might be worth trying...

Oh, I use a free Hex Editor (which allows for changing) called XVI32. It was great usefull for haxing Hitman Blood Money save files for pulled-out guns http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

First:
There's a free tool called Dragon Unpacker which has a function called "Hyper Ripper"
useful for ripping common files like wav,ogg,jpg.... in any file
It works with AC as well
Second:
Music files are found in DataPC_StreamedSounds.forge
Dialogues and sounds are found in DataPC_[cityname].forge
Third:
the translations for the phrases posted by drego5
1-Take it easy / watch out ????
2-Calm down / Slow down ??? ????
3-[someone]is right
4-slow down ????
5-get off my face ???? ?? ????
also in the end of the game when altair killed al-muallem he said "la shaya waqe'on motlaq bal kollon momken"
it's the famous: [Nothing is true, Everything is permitted]

It's not really luck. Think about it. No matter how tightly they are encrypted the game has to decrypt them to be able to use/play them. Just have to look at how the game decrypts them. It can be tricky, but not impossible.
