    Hello !
    Currently, I am trying to get the music from The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword for Wii, so I extracted the ROM. I have already converted all .bcstm music in .wav who were in the "WZS" folder but it lacks some music that are stored in the "WZSound.brsar" file only downside I can not get them all. When I try to extract the .brsar file with ripping_mama.exe or brsar unpack.exe, I have lots of messages "I don't get it ******SKIPPING******" shows although all the files are not extracted.

    I searched on Google another way to extract it and I came to Brawlbox.exe, the music is there but I have an error message when I want to export the musics...

    So I leave it to you ... Does anyone know how to retrieve the damn music in this .brsar file ?? Thank you in advance !!

    If the music you are trying to extract is streamed and not sequenced you can simply open the brsar in a hex editor and search for the text RWAV, the next file is likely also RWAV so mark the current position, search again, and use the 'select block' option to quickly select the entire thing, copy it to a new file, save, and open with winamp+vgmstream or something that converts RWAV.
    Do this until you find what you want.

    Since brawlbox is actually playing the sounds, you may be able to corrupt some RWAVs in a hex editor to see how far you are from the sound you want. IIRC Brawlbox does display each sound in the order they actually are in file so it shouldn't be much of a challenge to find it this way.

    I don't understand... Open it with a hex editor will bring me nothing more. What editor are you using?

    There is also VGM Toolbox, a nice tool for extracting RWAV chunks and much more.

    Open it and choose "Misc. Tools" --> "Extraction Tools" --> "Generic" --> "Advanced Cutter/Offset", then select "Nintendo Wii - RWAV Streams" (or any other tag/magic) from the dropdown-list at the right side and hit load.
    Next, optionally select the output folder and finally drag & drop the desired .brsar into the textfield on the left side of the panel where it says "Files to Search". It will then start to extract the RWAV chunks.
