How do I extract and convert the raw music files from the PS2 version of Need for Speed Underground? by UndergroundMusix at 3:33 PM EST on January 3, 2022
Hello everyone.

First of all, I wish everyone a very happy new year!

As I side-hobby, I like to extract and convert music from game that I like. Just like you guys, I guess.

For a few days now, I've been trying to extract the raw music flies from the PS2 version of Need for Speed Underground.

I'm well aware they're available in the archive, but I'd like to try it myself. The archive is also missing one song; T.I. - 24's. I'd like to rectify this once I manage to extract the files.

I've tried a few dedicated music extractors and converters, which work fine, but I really want to have a crack at it myself, just for the fun of it. It's so satisfying.

I'm assuming the audio is in either BIGFILE.VIV or ZZDATA0/1/2/3.BIN. All five files are located in ROOT > NFSUNDER.

I've tried VIV Wizard to inspect BIGFILE.VIV, but that doesn't seem to want to work on Windows 10, or any other Windows OS in compatibility mode. Very weird.

I've tried to inspect the BIN files using NFS-Disculator, however, I doesn't seem to recognize the audio files as they come up as unknown.

I've tried to search online for some VIV and Need for Speed BIN extractors, without much luck.

Now what? Am I perhaps using the wrong keywords? What do I search for? How do I extract files from VIV and Need for Speed BIN files and convert these to WAV?

Any help, pointers or suggestions are much appreciated!
