    Final Fantasy VIII Sound Effects?

    I've been on teh mighty voyage across the seas of google; I've trekked through the forests of youtube; I've even been lured in by the sirens of dead links and I couldn't come up with my mighty treasure... these FFVIII sound effects!

    Does anyone happen to know where I can find them (or at least the Limit Break sound effects)? It'd be greatly appreciated.

    Try [Hidden link.

Naturally however you would require the PC version of FFVIII for this - I presume it wouldn't work with the PSX original.

    Failing that, you could try also looking through the Forums there, as I know there is a small but dedicated group of FFVIII modders on that site, and who may have extracted FFVIII's sound files as well.

    I've done a little searching around here, but I've come up unsuccessful.

    I suppose the only option is to extract them myself... At least there is a program for that. Thank you

    I have my pc game. If I remember correctly, it's all put in a folder when installed. Been a few years so I might be wrong.

    Never mind, I just found it. I'll install it tomorrow because I'm going to bed but I could've sworn me playing a few in WMP (me and a buddy were going to make a little youtube cartoon series) and thought I could use a few of the environmental sounds such as running water and the birds chirping right after the opening movie when you start the game. So I'm pretty sure they're. I'll let you know.

    Don't know if this is exactly what you're looking for, but this is what installed.

    Thank you for getting that.

    Now I just need to find the Limit Break SFX isolated from the battle music. I might have to get that game, and I extract them using that program.

    EDIT:
    Thank you IDX & Enkidoh. I was able to successfully extract the needed sound effects from the game

    Here is a handful of SFX from FFVIII in case someone else can't find them.

    Also, a rare SFX:

    Yeah, and you won't get the raw effect. As in the music would be playing under it and it would sound like shit.

    I've been looking for these sounds as well. I installed FFVIII for PC and tried looking for the sounds and couldn't access them from the install.

    Also, I was really surprised and annoyed that the music was in MIDI. Tch, i'll stick with the PSX version.

    I'm looking for the sound effects such as the sounds you hear when walking through a save point or opening an automatic sliding door or the announcement bell you hear when someone is giving a message to all of Balamb Garden.
