Ripping audio from a game? Anonymous 12/16/2017 (Sat) 01:22:00 [Preview] No. 11947
I'm thinking of ripping the audio from an executable so I can translate an eroge and then rebuild the visual novel. What tools could I use to capture the audio?

That executable must expand the audio somewhere if it's that quality. I shouldn't think you would need to capture the audio, but you can capture any audio being played.

Were you thinking of using ren'py?

Renpy because it gives simple documentation and is the least work. You know I have a book on how to use a Japanese program to make visual novels, but the book is in Japanese. The visual novel is voiced and I want to capture her sexy moans otherwise it will feel like it's missing something. Frankly it's the total sum of the components in a package that makes a VN erotic, the art, voices and writing by themselves usually are low budget and aren't that good.

Any luck yet? If you upload the exe or let us know where to get it we might be able to help better.

No, not yet. I tried using "universal extractor" but it didn't work. Sure, the game is right here if anyone wants to have a go, or to play it. It's a very simple doujin erogame about a loli succubus who gains stronger powers as she levels up by having sex. It's more of a digital manga really, except for the voice acting.

Here's the gallery:

My plan is to edit the gallery how I would typeset a manga, and then to compile it with the audio in renpy.

Definitions found: 2641

Collecting data from file: C:\test\Succubus_Lolika.exe
34.8% (.EXE) InstallShield setup (43050/17/16)
33.6% (.EXE) Win32 EXE PECompact compressed (generic) (41569/9/9)
11.8% (.EXE) Win32 Executable Delphi generic (14687/80/4)
8.5% (.EXE) Win32 Executable Generic (10527/13/4)
6.1% (.DLL) Win32 Dynamic Link Library (generic) (7600/42/2)

It's not an installshield extractable, there is no cab in there I'm pretty sure. I think it's made using PECompact, looking for something to extract it now. It also seems to have a copy of Locale Emulator stuck in there(I think), that leads me to assume it's been bundled like this for foreigners. I tried finding an original unpacked japanese copy of the game but with no luck. It says it's made by "HUMANBALANCE ltd" but can't find anything. Any more info?

I think this is the only tool for it, but there is some odd question for signup, no idea what it's encoded in so can't think how to decode.

Actually scrap all that, just tried a bunch of PEUnpack tools and it's not working. Not sure what to do now.

Well thanks for giving it a shot. If push comes to shove I can give up on extracting the audio, and always record the tracks manually with some fidelity loss. I think there are only about 21 of them that I would need to record anyway; one full playthrough for each page plus the title.

The art style looks painfully familiar. Something from a WikiHow article to be honest.
