View Full Version : Loading Sound
9th Aug 2007, 1:30 PM
In The Sims there is a file called :
If you wanted to change loading sound, just replace it with another wav-file
The point is, I don't like the loading sound in The Sims 2 Pets and I want to replace it
But I don't know how to replace it
Can anybody tell me how I replace the loading sound ?

I'm a bit confused. Did you ask a question, then find out the answer by yourself and posted it here ?
Where is the loadloop.wav is located ?

Patrick is just remembering when, in the Sims1, it was possible to change that wav file to change the loading sound.
In the Sims2 the loading sound is in XA format, and is located in:
(program files)\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Sound\Splash.package
As for me, I sometimes replace the Splash.package from the latest EP (the one that you hear when the game is loading) with the Splash.package taken from UNI or the base game, so that I hear the old music, instead of the latest one.
Perhaps it should be possible to replace the XA files in the Splash.package with an MP3 or WAV file, but I'm not sure...

I hope splash.package uses same codec as the other music, the other music from the game are using a normal mp3 codec, so splash.package might uses the same...
I will check it out soon...

I can't find any software which can convert splash.package to wav/mp3

But it may be possible to replace it with one from another game, ex. NightLife

I have now replaced Splash.package with the one from TS2 base game
It works 100%
But, :Pint: I still want to replace it with a wma/mp3/wav file from music or the loading music from TS1

It would be good if there was a program which can import WMA/MP3/WAV files and convert them to a correct Splash.package file
