Classic Bosco Audio Restoration

A Sound Mod for Sam & Max Save the World

Updates

Episode 5 - Reality 2.0 1mo
  • Addition Restored Bosco's voice to Episode 5
Episode 5 is now complete.

Along with now having restored audio from episodes 1-5, the mod has now been split into two .zip files, as briefly mentioned in the previous update.

As such, the first download now contains episodes 1 to 3, and the second will eventually contain 4 to 6 (but currently contains 4 to 5).
Episode 4 - Abe Lincoln Must Die! 1mo Addition Episode 3 - The Mole, the Mob and the Meatball 1mo Addition Episode 2 - Situation: Comedy 1mo Addition

Restores and lightly cleans up the original Bosco voice lines.



PROCESS

This mod (painstakingly) ports all the original Bosco voice assets to the new remaster of "Sam & Max Save the World".

The lines in each game were labeled as numbers, with random numbers generated for both games (aka the same lines don't match number-to-number filename-wise), so first a full set of Bosco's lines had to be identified and sorted.

Each line was then converted from the proprietary ".vox" format (in the original game) to uncompressed .wav files, for editing.

Then, each of the original lines had to be edited to match the vocal timing of the new actor (as the new timing affected how long Bosco's lines play and how long Bosco's shot's in-game last), so that they'd play uninterrupted and at the right time.

Finally when this was done and working correctly in-game, the lines were given a basic cleanup and processed with "iZotope RX 8" to "EQ Match" a handful of surviving , but unused Bosco lines in the new remasters archives.

The results aren't perfect (you can only do so much with heavily compressed audio and timing constraints in-game), but it's the first step in restoring the changed assets in the remaster.

  • Thank you tons for this! I'm a newcomer to the series and Bosco's voice sounds really uninspired in the remaster. Happy that this is a thing! Eagerly awaiting the Ep. 6 mod :)

    Hi BenjaMoose, can you help me please. I tried using your mod and it didn't work. I'm playing the Steam version and when I tried putting the files in the Archives folder, Bosco's voice is still the new VA.

    Can I ask how you managed to open and modify the remaster's sound archive?

    You are a true hero, never thought this would happen.

    A million thanks, changing Bosco stopped me from buying the game as someone who has played them a lot.

    Was devastated he was gone but now the day is saved.
