1 Information

This page is mainly for information about Xbox game music formats but anything can be added in the general codec/nfo area :)

pap: PAplayer, XBMC's multicodec musicplayer. Has features like Replaygain, Gapless decoding & APEv2 tag support. More info here

Currently supports the following decoders:

MP3, MP2, OGG, MPC, AAC, ALAC, APE, FLAC, WavPack?, SHN, WAV, DTS-WAV, AC3-WAV, IT, S3M, XM, MOD, NSF, SPC, GYM, SID, ADPLUG, ADX/AST/ADP/DSP/YMF/HPS, CDDA, DTS-CDDA, AC3-CDDA


By scouting around, we've come to learn the following about Xbox game audio:


Most games use these audio formats: ADX, PCM, WMA, XBADPCM. Many other consoles use a similiar TYPE of ADPCM format, however the code encode/decode algorithms are not identical.

1.1 Known Developer Formats

Most games use the XWB ( Xact/Xbox Wave Bank ) format, which can contain: PCM, WMA, XBADPCM.

XSB is a filename container for the XWB format.

Alot of Microsoft Game Studios games use WMA ( what else :P ).

Sega games use: ADX &/or AFS ( archive format which most of the time contains ADX files ).

SFD is CRI MiddleWares video Codec.

1.2 Xbox ADPCM Header Spec

4 bytes 'RIFF'
4 bytes Size of File +40
8 bytes 'Wavefmt '
4 bytes Size of Wavefmt Block (Always = 0x20)
2 bytes Wav Codec ID (Always = 0x69)
2 bytes No of Channels (Max = 2)
4 bytes Samplerate (Min = 8000hz, Max = 48000hz)
4 bytes Byterate ( (Samplerate * Block Alignment) >> 6 )
2 bytes Block Alignment (No of Channels * 36)
2 bytes Bits Per Sample (Always = 4)
2 bytes ? (Always = 0x02)
2 bytes ? (Always = 0x64)
4 bytes 'data'
4 bytes Size of Data Block (Size of File)
