    This is my first post here, so forgive me if I am posting in the wrong place.
    Note: I not a native speaker, so forgive me for any gramatical mistakes.

    Not a long time ago, I decided myself that I would change one part of the Arcanum wiki that always bother me, that being the part that mentioned all the endings, along with all the slides, narration and conditions. I changed a large part of it, but I still think I can make it better, in this case I decided to put the sound files of the narrations along with the text, like the Fallout wiki does.
    I decided to look on how to unpack the Arcanum.dat files, and I did with the unDAT_MatuX_TMS, but I cannot find these sound files contaning the narrations of the end slides. Searching a little I saw a lot of .scr files contaning the names of some events that happen in the game, like when Virgil in ressurected and encounters Joachim, so I believe the sound files I search are in these .scr files, but I cannot open these files.

    So, are these files I search inside these .src files, or they are in other places? And if so, where?

    I did not check EVERY .dai in the main directory, since some are additions of the UAP mod, but the main ones (like Arcanum 1, 2 3 etc) were all checked. Though, I think its worth check in?
    Also, I did not think about the .patch files in the module folder (since there is none in the main directory folder). Also there are other .dat files I did not see, so yeah, gotta take a look in these files and see if I find anything.

    Many thanks!
