Help Extracting Sounds? - Revenge of the Flying Dutchman by JomSpoons at 11:33 PM EDT on June 10, 2019
Hi there! I've trying to rip all the music from the game SpongeBob SquarePants: Revenge of the Flying Dutchman, which released on both GameCube and PS2, so I can compile a soundtrack to listen to. Ripping most of the soundtrack is easy, as all the main tracks for the game are just PCM WAV files that can be played without issue on a computer.

However, there is one track in specific I've been looking for that is not with the rest of the music and I cannot find anywhere. There is a jingle that plays in-game whenever picking up a letter tile, the main collectable of the game. Here is an example of the jingle. Since it's not with the rest of the music, I have to assume it's stored alongside the game's sounds, which I have not been able to find. I've checked both the GameCube and PS2 versions and I've not been able to figure out where the sounds are stored, let alone how to play them.

I've tried using Dragon UnPACKer's HyperRipper and PSound on the PS2 version to see if it could locate the sound effects but all it could find was the aforementioned WAVs and what I'm assuming are false positives as none of the rest played any sound. The game has a lot of files which I'm unable to figure out how to open, specifically .DPS, .NPS, .IRX, and .SPS files. The game is made up of mainly .TSC files which are viewable in text editors, so those seem to not be of any use to me.

If anyone has any ideas as to how I can rip the sounds from either version, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

Alright, I got it figured out. Sandmanfan from the Battle for Bikini Bottom modding Discord helped me out and told me how he extracted the jingles.

In the /SPEECH/ENGLISH/* folders you can scan the .SPS files individually using PSound. For some reason a full game scan did not work for me but scanning the singular .SPS files did. Each one has voice clips for specific areas and each one has the three jingles I was looking for, those being the lost life jingle, the letter tile jingle, and the treasure found jingle.

The sounds play at incorrect speeds unless in PSound you click Options > Configure and then turn on "Force to [blank]Hz" and set it to 22050Hz. This fixes the speed for most of the sounds but some of them still are too fast or slow. You'll need to mess around with the Hz if you want to rip all the sounds and voice clips.
