WaveToLip

WaveToLip is an application that generates a lip files (*.lip) from wav, ogg or wss audio files supported by Bohemia Interactive's engine. A lip file accompanies a sound file meant for spoken words in a mission. The file lip-syncs the month of the charter to the spoken words in a sound file. It shares the same name of the sound file and must be in the same folder.

Example:
talking1.ogg 
talking1.lip

talking2.ogg
talking2.lip

NOTE: ogg files are actually sound files encoded with the Ogg Vorbis codec developed by Xiphophorus software, http://www.vorbis.com/. wss files are proprietary BI sound files created by WaveToSSS. Wss files are optimal for the engine except a long audio that needs to be streamed - for that ogg format is best.

To use, simply drag a 16-bit mono audio file into the WaveToLip.exe. It will then generate the lip file to the same directory/folder as the source audio files.

Tip: Add a short-cut of the WavToLip program to Windows Send To folder (C:\Documents and Settings\<your user name>\SendTo ). This will let you simply right click on a supported audio file wav and select "send to" and WaveToLip.


WaveToSSS

It can play wav, wss or ogg files or directory (wave2sss -play <directory> ). It can also convert wav file to wss.
Wave2SSS is available here.
