    Some .app files are .arc files.

    Sorry to push that old topic again, but I'm trying to extract the Mario Galaxy sounds.

    Firstly I used WiiScrubber to extract the *.iso-file.
    Now there are a lot of *.arc-Files, I tried extracting them with FreeArc, but they seem to be no orginary *.arc-Archives.

    Sooo...could someone PM me the extractor which was mentioned here?

    u8tool can't extract them.

    I always get run-time failure '5'

    Any other ideas?

    search on google "yaz0dec.exe" [​IMG] and then you wil get a rarc file that you can extract with u8tool

    Ah thanks!
    But how to use it. the readme says:

    I don't get it. whenever I do yaz0dec with arc-files in the same folder as the exe, it just does nothing :/

    open a command prompt ( windows buton + r and type cmd) and then type cd"your folder path" for example

    cd c:\users\Nick\Desktop\wiistuff\****

    then put yaz0dec.exe in that folder and type in the same cmd window

    yaz0dec "file you want to dec" and it wil generate a new file [​IMG]

    Uh... You can drag+drop an arc onto yaz0dec and it will decompress it, you don't need to use command prompt.

    Good point, many apps I use for various things need command prompt too.

    Just seems they never used it before for much, and drag+drop would probably be much simpler for them =P
