RAD Game Tools: Bink/Miles/Smacker Windows .dll's.

Postby DosFreak » 2006-2-17 @ 09:45

Bink
Search for:
binkw32.dll

Smacker
Search for:
smackw32.dll

Miles
Search for:
MSS16.dll
MSS32.dll


Once you find the files you can usually identify the version # by right-clicking on the files, going to properties, going to the VERSION tab, and then clicking on PRODUCT VERSION. The version will pop up in the window.

The really old Smacker/Miles files may not have a version dialog box. In those cases you'll have to search the file for the version #'s....try searching for the text "version" and the version # should be close by. I'll see if I can write up something more detailed for searching later.


Check further down the page for a post I made with the .dll's.

Here's what I have - looks like I have a few that you don't and you have a ton that I don't:

A3D:
a3dapi.dll.2.02
a3dapi.dll.2.22
a3dapi.dll.3.02
a3dapi.dll.3.12

EAX:
eax.dll.2.06
eax.dll.3.00
EAX.DLL.3.062
eax.dll.3.065
eax.dll.4.00
eax.dll.4.01


OPENAL:
OpenAL32.dll.Creative.0.980
OpenAL32.dll.Creative.0.989
OpenAL32.dll.Creative.0.991
OpenAL32.dll.Creative.0.993
OpenAL32.dll.nVidia.6.14.462.0
OpenAL32.dll.nVidia.6.14.464.0


Generally, with Bink, Smacker and MSS you can interchange any files with the same number1.number2 version (i.e. the letter can be different but not the major and minor version numbers).

Smacker v4
KISS Psycho Circus v4.0d
Might and Magic VIII Platinum Edition v1.0 v4.0b



Could you attach the .dll's you have that I don't?

I'll do the same for you.


Getting close to posting that thread on Miles Sound System + other drivers......

I never did get into collecting OpenAL/A3D/EAX....so mabye I'll put it off until I go through my collection again....

Sorry I took so long :sly:

Please rename the archive to raddlls.7z and use a 7zip decompressor (.tar.bz2 and .zip both made archives that were quite a bit larger and got too close to the 5MB limit for comfort). Includes a couple extra versions that I've scooped up in the last year or two (including smackw32.dll v4.0e).

It would be cool to get all of the DLLs you listed, although at the moment I'm mostly interested in smackw32.dll v3.0r because for some reason the 2.2i version included with Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II leaves black box artifacts all over static parts of the scenes. I tried versions up to 3.0j and had the same result. Version 3.1n crashes the game, so I guess it's not 2.2i-compatible.

Currently visiting my folks so if I don't get around to doing it here, I'll do it when I get back.

Haven't kept up with the files for the last couple of months since I've been focused on Vista and 64bit testing....When I get around to 2008 testing I'm going to look back through my list and identify the game I haven't looked at to see if they have bink/smacker/miles files. Also alot of games on my list I identified as having the files but I didn't identify the version so I just left a question mark.....


I think we'll just put up all of the .dll's if the RAD Game tools people have a problem then they can just tell us to take it down.

lol thanks. I took 2 years to post mine, so I wasn't expecting an immediate response ;)

Edit: most of your DLLs are bigger than mine for some reason. Going to keep mine when I find a conflict during merge because I got almost all of them from actual games.

I was wondering if you UPX'd your .dll's. Haven't checked the small ones I got from your zip. I took most of my .dll's straight from the game demos without any compression to them.

I was thinking they might be UPX'd as well. I didn't UPX them myself but maybe whoever distributed the games I got them from did.

Hmmm, some downloads yet no one else offering .dll's.

Actually, somebody has and for a practical reason (at least for Smacker files to a certain extent). Rowan Software once acknowledged a problem with Flying Corps Gold where the included Smacker DLL did not work on some systems/configurations. They made an alternate version available, but while this version worked on some systems, it still didn't resolve the problem on others. However, most users were able to fix the problem by going through and testing all the Smacker DLLs on their system until they found one that worked. That's how I got the game to work on my particular configuration.

So a ready-made collection of Smacker DLLs may make it easier for someone to get that game to work at least.

When I start full Windows 2008 testing I'm going to slowly go through each game and categorize as much as possible:

Space Used
Game Engine
Smacker/Bin/Miles/Qsound/EAX/A3d, etc....

So you can expect an even more thorough collection of .dll's sometime this year.


I also have my file server almost done (will have 4tb of space) so the plan is to install each game and then copy the files over to the server for all time. This way I won't have to constantly re-install whenever I want to study the game.

I've got troubles with No One Lives Forever (shipped with mss32 6.0i). What if I try with 6.0m or another in the 6.x range (with 7.2c it complains that some functions are missing)?

P.S.: 7.2c is the mss32.dll shipped with the demo of miles sound system.

I'm very slowly going through all of my games for Windows 2008 and backing up the installed game directories so I should be able to add some more versions.

Doesn't seem to work.

Maybe if you ask nicely, they'll send you changelogs? :)

Looks like robots.txt prevented archive.org from backing up the site.

I'll look into seeing if I can archive the site with wget and see if there is still a copy on their server. If not I think I may have save a copy of that page a couple of years ago.

Damn internets why must you change!
