You'll turn up quite a few hits if you search on "sound effects". I wonder where LWM goes for some of her excellent ones...maybe just takes 'em from various games? (LWM, it's safe to come out, "he of great vexation to the spirit" is gone!).

WinTex will open the Duke3d.GRP file, and I think XWE will do it, too. From there I'm sure you can find the sounds.

WinTex does NOT rule. It's buggy as hell... but for some things it is actually faster than other editors. From "File" in Wintex's main menu select "open Duke3d .GRP file" or something like that.

That wad apparently is "007: License to spell Doom", so you might get it at
/pub/idgames/levels/doom/Ports/0-9/007ltsd.zip . Do not worry, those sounds are also just from Q(1|2) and (prbably) HL, some others too.

I use 4 main sources:

1. Other games - most games these days have tools to rip them apart. Look along your games shelf, see what games you have, do a google to find the tools. Quite a few games just use zips, but with a different extension. eg Q3's PK3 files are just zips. I've managed to pull files put of almost every game I own.

Try and use games that other people don't use. We've all heard Duke, Quake, UT etc etc effects. in a number of WADs.

BTW, I think you'll find XWE better for pulling Duke apart. Or find a good prog for converting VOC's to WAV's. IIRC most of Dukes sounds are on the CD as individual files in a dir called "fun" or "cool" or similar

2 Sound effects CD's. Available from some record stores and public libraries.

3. Internet searches of sound sites

4. Record my own. Just go down to the basement and prod the chained up demon with a red hot poker until he makes the right noise.

Come on, we've all got our demons (pun intended). But I can believe we don't all own mics :D

I dunno about Max Payne (PS2) but I certainly got stuff out of the PC version - don't remember what I got, or what I used it for. I remember it was a pretty easy job to get stuff though, but don't know what I did to get it. Because quite a few games use zips (as I said) I usually try to open them with winzip first (don't drop onto winzip - the different extentions are usually enough to confuse it). If that doesn't work, then I do a google. A modern game usually has a host of hacking tools both officially provided, and from 3rd parties.

There are a lot of sounds from Sin (a game which other people don't use) in there too, especially the pipe/machine sounds. The rest are mainly Quake 2, Half-Life and Unreal. (and a handful from Quake 1, Malice, Duke, Heretic and Hexen)

You don't need a mic - all you need is a line-out/auxiliary wire (the sort of thing that connects personal cd players to external speakers) and a stereo that has an auxiliary port (two holes next to each other, one red and one white). This lets you play game sound through the stereo, and you can record onto a tape as normal. In fact you'll get better quality than using a mic, as background noise and distance from the speakers doesn't play a part. But remember to turn up the game volume, as that controls the recording volume (not the stereo).

That's how I do all my sounds. (apart from the Sonic ones, where I had to revert to a stereo with a in-built mic - which is what happens when your megadrive is part of an ancient PC with no external ports for anything like mics or headphones)
