Download that tool, then make a "gamedata" folder in your main stalker folder and then run the exe, select each .db file and extract to the new "gamedata" folder.

Here's some basic information (based on a 1.0001 patched game) on what is in each db file, so you only have to extract files from the ones you want to edit:

DB0: directories: ai, anims, config, levels

files: game.graph, gamemtl.xr, lanims.xr, particles.xr, resource, senvironment.xr, shaders.xr, shaders_xrlc.xr, stalkergame

DB1: Directories: levels

DB2: Directories: levels

DB3: Directories: levels

DB4: Directories: levels, meshes, scripts, shaders, sounds

DB5: Directories: sounds, textures

DB6: Directories: textures

DB7: Directories: textures

DB8: Directories: spawns, textures

DB9: Directories: config, meshes, sounds

DBA: Directories: config, scripts, shaders, spawns

Files: game.graph, gamemtl.xr, lanims.xr, particles.xr, resource, senvironment.xr, shaders.xr, shaders_xrlc.xr, stalkergame

DBB: Directories: config, scripts, spawns, textures

Important Note: After extracting each DB file into a separate directory to figure this out there are some obvious file duplicates. I'm guessing that the later DB files (in the order I've listed them) have priority so those files should overwrite any "older ones". In other words if you extract the files into a single "gamedata" directory do so in this order, unless someone says otherwise.

If anyone finds any interesting stuff in these files post them in here. For instance in the sounds/music/save directory there are 4 tracks from some Russian rap band? I haven't heard in game. They also all seem to be the same song.

Anyone have a link to a good codec or program for listening to the sound files? They are mostly in OOG format but some are things like SFAPO and SFK files? I downloaded one OOG codec that allows you to play the files in windows media player but it doesn't register half the files.

That might help you a little if you don't like rapidshare.

An easy way to play ogg music files, is to rename the extension from .ogg to .mp3. For example, change guitar_5.oggto guitar_5.mp3 and it should play.

Hi, just curios...I want to change the guitar music played by npc's. So what i would want to do is download that tool thingy, extract the desired .db file (the guitar music) into gamedata folder and then just replace them with my own into the gamedata folder?

So where are the .db files located? I would assume in the Stalker root folder? (i'm not on the PC where it's installed so can't check it yet) So i just use the tool to extract the .db file? Which db file do i extract for the guitar music?

And when replaced do i just leave it in the gamedata folder or does it somehow have to be packed back into the original DB file?

You don't even have to extract the files, if you want to use your own. But since the audio directory structure is rather complicated, it might be better to extract the files and folders first.

[quote=Polybius87;4383039] Which db file do i extract for the guitar music?

Search for Stalker yellow pages and use them to find out.

No re-packing necessary/possible.

Make sure you extract the DB files in order. From 1 to 9, then after that, A to C. So you should extract them like this: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 a b c

I tried that unpacker (from rapidshare) and it didn't work. I put the english exe in the game (clear sky) directory and opened it. I then pointed it to the resources folder and chose "resources.db0". I then pointed it to the gamedata folder I created to extract to. I then got an error message saying "file not supported".
