Sounds- saving as files?

Hi again, I've got all the sprites and graphics catagorized in files, now i need the sounds too. I've been trying to use Wintex, but theres what i understand as a known bug where listening to sounds through it will eventually crash Wintex. (I read that somewhere ).

Anyway, I imported about the first 56 sounds, having to reload Wintex about 3 times to accomplish that, because you can't select a sound without it playing the sound too (!) which makes it crash after several sounds.

But now I cant even play/select any sound without it crashing. Ive restarted my computer several times in this process, all to no avail.

What editor can I use to find, and convert the sound files to .wav format? If i was ready to yet, I wouldnt be able to edit the sounds in wintex because i cant do anyhing with the edit sounds option now.

Any help at all, as always appreciated. Thanks, your help has been awesome so far!

DeePsea Export assuming you mean convert the DOOM sound to a sound you can edit with Windows tools:

1. Press F7 to bring up the PWAD tool dialog.
2. Select "Export Lump to a File"
3. (Optional) uncheck all types until only Sounds is left - now click "Show Types".
4. If you want to do all of them at once, click Grouping.
5. Push "Select All" for all sounds. For only specific sounds, press Ctrl+left mouse button as you select sounds.
6. Click WAV - this will create a WAV file for every sound selected. It will prompt for a directory to store the files. The name of each file is the lumpname.WAV. IOW, ALL the files are exported at once with nothing more to do:)

If you meant to take WAV files and put them in your PWAD converted to DOOM format sound, that can be done too. F7, Merge-Import. Change the "Auto Options" (click that button) to change the default from WAV to SND. See bottom of http://www.doomworld.com/vb/showthr...&threadid=12173 to see how to do that.

If you're using WinTex 4.3, you can turn sounds off when looking at them. When you edit a wadfile, you'll notice at the very top a bunch of options. One of them is 'Music'. Select that, then click on 'No Sounds'. After that, you shouldn't hear the sounds when you select them.
