In order to make you even bother reading the post, I'll try to keep it short:
Since the names of files aren't stored inside MPQs, they need to be loaded externally via a listfile you load into WinMPQ. However, even the best listfiles don't have all names, and this is where you guys come in.
I'll attach a .wav file from StarCraft Beta's StarDat.mpq that we don't know the name of, and I would like help in guessing the name.
There are ways of automatically trying to guess names (called namebreaking), but I've been doing that for the past six months (probably even more) and so far without success. While I haven't found the name, I do have some criteria:
- The name begins with sound\bullet\
- The name is at least 10 characters long, apart from the "sound\bullet\"-part
- (Almost) all names are in alphabetical order inside MPQs. At the end of the post there is a list of the other files inside sound\bullet\
- As said, it's in alphabetical order, and I know from the namebreaking that it must be after "NI(I000000".
As you can hear, it's a zergish-type of sound. It's been long since I actually played StarCraft, so I can't remember what sound it is, if it even is in the "real" version and not just in the Beta.
I hope everyone understood at least what I meant.
Simply make an educated guess of what it might be called, based on what the other names are (however, almost all other names are <= 8 characters long, excluding directories and extension, and this name is at least 10 characters long.) And it also must be placed after NI(I000000
If you crave minerals, I can give you some if you find the name
