ISN2WAV

Converts ISN/ISS/SSN audio files into standard PCM wave files.

Usage:  ISN2WAV <AudioFiles>

        AudioFiles      Specifies the audio files to be converted. Wildcards
                        are allowed.


TLJView

A graphical application to view The Longest Journey ressources.

After the first launch, use the "Options | Set TLJ directory" menu to specify the path of your TLJ installation, i.e. the directory where x.xarc is located. TLJView will then scan the ressource files and build a tree view which you can use to navigate through the various entries. If a certain format is known to the application, a converted preview will appear on the right-hand pane. Resources can be extracted via the Edit menu.

Currently, not all formats are fully implemented. This might be improved in the future. Keep in mind, however, that this program is not intended to be a ready-to-use application, but was developed as a personal replacement for the seemingly abandoned TLJ Viewer (http://geocities.com/rescosoftware/), which does not convert images with their correct colours, but has some extended features compared to this application. Parallel use of both programs is suggested if you want the most complete feature set.

TLJView will save its options to an INI file in the current user's application data directory. If you want to completely remove the utility from your machine, you will have to delete this file as well as the program itself.

If you install the RAD Video Tools (http://www.radgametools.com/bnkdown.htm) on your machine, TLJView will attempt to play Smacker animations and Bink video sequences via this toolset.

This application uses the excellent Audiere Sound System by Chad Austin (http://audiere.sourceforge.net/) to play back sound resources.


XARCExt

Extracts files from XARC archives.

Usage:  XARCExt <XARCFiles>

        XARCFiles       Specifies the archive files to be processed. Wildcards
                        are allowed.


XMG2BMP

Converts XMG images into the standard Windows bitmap format.

Usage:  XMG2BMP <XMGFiles>

        XMGFiles        Specifies the XMG files to be converted. Wildcards are
                        allowed.
