Additional Bag FilesΒΆ

Yuri’s Revenge only read audio.idx and audio.bag, either requiring modders to deliver custom versions also including the original sound files, or to rely on loose wave files.

Ares adds support for multiple index and bag files, which make it easier to deliver sounds while also decreasing the mod’s file sizes potentially. First audio.idx is read as before, and then all files from audio01.idx to audio99.idx, with the actual data in the corresponding .bag file.

Index files loaded later can override sound files that were included earlier, thus it is possible to update sound files using relatively small bag files for patches.

New in version 0.A.
