@bnnm: Appears to be a Quick Macros compiled executable, too bad they didn't post the source code.

@kode54 - "too bad they didn't post the source code."
Well, unless one knows how to decompile that executable somehow, it seems like reverse-engineering the format from scratch(and I mean anything that uses an codec that vgmstream doesn`t cover, not just Croc 2 .ASF files) is the only solution.

If any of you were even capable of that, that is.

It's an executable compiled from a scripting language, whose documentation even goes so far as to report not being able to decompile the scripts. Lots of people even use it for random lazy ass shit.

@kode54 - Yeah, so what? That`s why I said that reverse-engineering the audio format(and the codec with it if it doesn`t use an already-covered audio codec on vgmstream) from scratch - as in, not "borrowing" from any "source-code" files whatsoever - is the only solution.

@Bnnm - would you like to get all BGMs from those 2 VGs? For example in Terminator 3 a few tracks sound almost crystal clear but some other ones are played back with quite a bit of static. Maybe comparing the former to the latter can help you improve support of the codec (or MDS variant of DSP to be entirely correct)?
Goodbye!

@Ultrafighter - sure, I could take a look. Similary sized files that sound roughly the same (like 2 variations of the same song/sfx) also help.

This is Mission Impossible & this is Terminator 3. The former has bonus SFX which I'd not normally call music (like whistling or belling) and the latter contains only BGM (there're pairs of tracks with the same play lengths so they may have roughly the same file sizes).
Cheers!

Hi, in case you were wondering, I have not actually performed any reverse engineering for this project. My work consists entirely of melding together existing source code. I leave that IDA shit to the bored.
