    1. Where can I find the file acm2wav.exe so I can listen to the BGII sound waves?

    2. Does Sol's Searing Orb and Fireseeds automatically fire or do they appear in your inventory?

    3. How do I complete level 2 of watchkeep's dungeon (with all the elemental rooms)

    4. Is Watcher's Keep on the SOA map as well?

    2. The manual says that fire seeds are created in the casters inventory and that Sol's searing orb cannot be given to another player as they are too hot to handle. I assume that they work in a similar way to melfs minute meteors and are stuck in the casters attack slot
    3. Use a walkthrough
    4. Yes

    Acm2wav cannot be found on that site, as the author explicitly states that he will not distribute that program because he doesn't want to run the risk of being sued.

    DLTCEP will allow you to play the sound files, and I think that you can get acm2wav here.

    I don't know if I can post the name of this site, is competition, you know, but, errr... you know where Kelsey is? In the tool section there are several tools, there is this one that I used that allows you to convert the format that BG uses in the songs to a wav file.

    [​IMG] Gulp! Rastor you are right, sorry, my mistake.

    You can get any tool there.
    The one that fit cat needs is Infinity Sound Converter (ISC) v2.0.2, I used that so I have any song to listen in any mp3 player.

    Thanks Sydax,

    I don't suppose anybody knows where the wavs are kept that make the spell-casting/chanting sounds.

    If you use the tool I use (the one I pointed) you find out that those sounds aren't in .wav, all the sounds are in the BG sound format (don't remember the name, you know, I am in a place far from home because I have no internet back there). So if you manage to find where the music is, you'll find some others files named in a easy way like: musicblabla.xxx; npctalk.xxx and I know there is one named effects.xxx or something like that. Sorry if this confuses even more, but I promise tomorrow I'll give you more details if you can't find anything untill then.
    My best regards

    There's no need to go to all that trouble. I did look in music for the awc files, but there doesn't appear to be any for the spell chanting components. It's no biggie; just an experiment. Thanks for your help.
