Hi Datschge

Actually these days I have no time so the best way is to download the .ipa images which are the iphone and ipad game images much like .apk or mac os ones which are the usual .dmg files. Usually you can unpack and explore them with 7zip or poweriso since most use zlib or similar compression.

The games are easier to rip as the music is usually in the main directory and usually mp3,caf or aac but also fsb ogg when using unity.. they do ha e their own archive formats which can be hard to figure out or encrypted but even archives with odd extensions can regularly use zip compression or if you cannot open the file you can extract with those
typical common audio format extractor programs like Raviolli Tools e.g.

Games on iOS using Unity never uses split archives like Android does like .split1 .split2 etc.. so less stressful ;)

The easiest way to rip games is just to grab the .ipa files from online..from many russian websites or.easier ones like 4pda, iphonecake etc . Some links can all be broken for certain games so you may need to hunt endlessly for them but when finally a link works it feels good. Hah.

Anyway that is what I do these days. The hardest part is finding certain games as they can be rare.

Finally the archives that are .pak .iso etc can bs anything like pc archives as a few games I haven't been able to rip. The files are online so would be good if others want to rip too

The Rhythm Of Fighters:

Download from MEGA

Complete with every single sound effect, voice clip and music file (excluding DLC).

Changed the extension of the ".rof" files to ".ogg" as they're just standard ogg files.

Requested by @rcsb!

Requesting a bit of help on this one.

I've tried ripping UNO (for iOS) with success, but the audio files are MSD, which foobar doesn't support. Here are the files for anyone who knows anything about this:

(Long shot but) does anyone happen to have the old click-wheel iPod version of UNO? I remember the files being MP3 but for whatever reason I never saved a copy of them.

@MoldyPond - UNO for iOS:

Download from MEGA

Regarding the iPod version: if you connect your click-wheel iPod to iTunes with the same account UNO was purchased on, there should be an option to redownload it under "Games".

Once you do that, you should have a ".ipg" file, which is just a renamed standard zip file.

Inside should be the music assets!

EDIT: Listening to the music, it's identical to the WiiWare, XBOX 360, PSP and DSi versions, so I wouldn't be surprised if the iPod version just used the same music.

@simonmkwii Well thanks a bunch! ̶̶̶H̶̶̶o̶̶̶w̶̶̶'̶̶̶d̶̶̶ ̶̶̶y̶̶̶o̶̶̶u̶̶̶ ̶̶̶g̶̶̶e̶̶̶t̶̶̶ ̶̶̶t̶̶̶h̶̶̶e̶̶̶m̶̶̶ ̶̶̶t̶̶̶o̶̶̶ ̶̶̶w̶̶̶o̶̶̶r̶̶̶k̶̶̶? Had tried changing the file extension to MP3 but not M4A :D

Also for the click-wheel version I lost my iPod years ago, but they got rid of click-wheel games from iTunes at least like 5 years ago and they got rid of the option to redownload them as well. I've found multiple dumps of many click-wheel games but UNO never ends up being one of them. (Though thankfully Peggle was, and for some reason is higher quality than the iOS and Android version (Willing to upload as well)).

Any info on a download of UNO would be greatly appreciated.

@MoldyPond They were just standard M4A files with a slightly modified header, so I just needed to fix the headers and rename it to .m4a!

Here's what I have found regarding Gameloft's UNO so far:

All versions use the same music.

iOS uses AAC, Wii uses OGG and I'm currently checking the rest.

EDIT: Although on second thought, the leading null bytes in the header probably didn't need to be removed, as the MP4 standard allows that.

Regarding Peggle, I have the files from both the iOS and click-wheel version. The click-wheel ones are 192kbps while the iOS ones are 128kbps. This is why I'm wondering if UNO's the same.

Lastly, I'm trying to extract the game's launch icons, which are PNGs, but they only come up as black pictures. The ingame buttons are PNG as well but they extract just fine.

Didn't know about the Wii, DSi or PSP versions! I have it for Xbox 360 though and it's completely different from the others.
