Hello!
I've been trying to extract the music files from Layton and the Last Specter, however with no success. I tried using VGM Toolbox and VGM Trans-
With the former I managed to extract an sdat however I could not replicate the process, though that might probably my unfamiliarity with the software... and when I tried to Import that file into either VGMTrans or NitroStudio it won't work (VGM trans wont even react and nitro studio says: "error could not read file from disk. it requieres a number that is not negative"). Also if I try to put the rom directly on VGM trans it wont react at all, though it does work with other roms. Any idea on what might be the issue? Thank you!

i'll do more research, but if you open up the rom in nitro explorer 3 and "expand all", you can see a bunch of .sad files which contain audio and can be played in foobar2000 with the vgmstream plugin.

i'm not sure how you managed to get an .sdat file as there doesn't seem to be one at all in the rom. probably why you can't replicate it.

Hey thank you! Nitro Explorer 3 worked, however it seems none of the music is in those formats.. There is a WAV folder with .SWD files, how would i extract the music from those files, in case it where there (the .sad files where cutscenes and other audio effects)
