    The title says it all... Is there any way to open these files? What option in UnrealEd should I use? How to convert them to wav/mp3/ogg or sth like that? I mean exactly these files:

    AcheronE3.con
    Angels.con
    Body.con
    DrakkBoss.con
    Intro.con
    M01.con
    M08.con
    Sulferon.con

    all located in Unreal II/Music folder. Please help.

    THANKS! Thank You very much, both of you!

    BTW, I actually decided to supply myself with U2XMP - the Euro version (because it's already patched), the CBP, the CXP, the GFP and the map that was in the first beta of CBP, named CMP back then - Chlorophyll. After I get all these files, I'll be really pleased.. BTW, I would like to convert the music myself - but under Sir_Brizz's second given link, after a short search I found a solution: The CONtainer, a part of - if I remember correctly - DirectMusic software. Well, I guess it's time to seek for a trial of it. After I find it, I'll edit this post and put a tutorial right here.

    I know GAP, the Game Audio Player, can play the CON files straight.

    In reality, CON files seem to be basically a whole bunch of looping WAV files, with the game instructed to play these loops in whatever order the designer desires.

    As for is it possible to make them... that I'm not sure of. But if we know how the format works, it shouldn't be too much work.

    This post may be a bit too serious for this forum...

    Regardless, it's the best place to put it.

    And a sure way to ensure this thread probably gets him no answers. Let's face it, this forum isn't visited nearly as often as the U2 ones are.

    Sorry, but I cannot help you with that. If I knew sth about CON files, I wouldn't ask for help myself in the first place. Don't count on me as my knowledge sucks.

    I did it. It works perfectly. ^^
    After 4 days with hard working and testing, I did it. I am very happy about it.
