I realize this may come off as a silly question but whatever, I need some help.

So I wanted to open some files with .net extension and my computer asks what program to use so I can open it. The thing is that I have no fucking idea so yeah, any help would be great. Thanks.

.net is a weird file extension. It's not a common one, used by netViz, FileMaker, linux OSs (rc.net) and a few obscure random apps.

Where did you get it from? What are you expecting to be in it? Image, video, a program? Is it possible that it's got the wrong file extension?

It's a game soundtrack. So yeah, just music.

I did come across those things you mentioned while I googled it but I'm still clueless as to how to open it.

where did you get it from?

try use SUPER to convert it to mp3 or something, its weird ive never seen any music files of that type, did you copy it straight off a game DVD or CD or something?

I don't really get it either, the soundtrack is on a site and it just says the extension is .net
Maybe I should just let this go. But thanks a lot for all the help guys.

In that case, it's probably going to be a proprietory file format ONLY used by that game, probably containing multiple audio files and other information (rather than just being one MP3). A bit like GTA games use IMG files to store lots of DFF/TXD models.

If you really need it, you could look for mods for that game and see if there are any tools for opening NET files.

You could try renaming it to .mp3 or .wav and see if any of them work, but I'd doubt it unless you are expecting to be one song.

You could always record the audio from your game? Bit of a hacky workaround but if you're desperate and can't get it anywhere else you could do that. Probably not strictly legal, as you won't be licenced to listen to that music except in that game.

It's a PS2 exclusive game so yeah....

Anyway, I got a classmate of mine in a hunt for the soundtrack, he knows that shit well so hopefully he should be able to get it for me. Thanks anyway Gerard.

Try using Switch Sound Converter as it can convert anything regardless of file extension since it decodes the file based on figuring out its internal structure, not the extension. It should work, I once used it to convert a .ogg file (didn't know what it was at the time) when it was incorrectly named as a .docx (WTF? :P)

Ha, fun fact:

I just found out of a place with the whole soundtrack in a .rar extension, so I can finally get it :)

But thanks for telling me about that program Raybob, I'll keep it here just in case.

Another program that's VERY versatile would be VLC Media Player and if you right click on the .net file and then click open with VLC once you locate the EXE it may be able to play it.

But that's just for future reference since you said your problem is solved. :)

lol rapidshare? :P

i was gonna suggest, you can use a rca -> 3.5mm adapter and then plug that into your pc to record it from the PS2 but you already found that file so yeah :)
