Ozark Northern WOW!!!!!!!! One quick question, what do I need to open the ".sms" files to edit them. Great sounds with the sound pack, but I'd like to mix them up a bit! Thanks, Mike the Yank

Hi Mike,
Try the CONTEXT Editor. I have been using it for years.

Cheers,
Rob

Hello Mike!

If you have "Wordpad", then you have a ready-made Unicode editor.

Open the sms file using "Wordpad". (Note: You may have to "associate" the first time you open an sms file.)

Modify as desired and save using the "SAVE" command, not "SAVE AS". Using "SAVE" will preserve the Unicode the file is written using.

Have fun!
