I want to play Arx while the speech-files are extracted and loaded from the speech-folder instead of the speech.pak.

I've extracted all the .wav files from the speech.pak to the speech folder within the Arx installation directory (in the language subfolders of course), but if i play Arx there is no speech at all.

Simple question: is it common that the Game can't play the speech files from anywhere but the speech.pak, or is this an exception? I ask because i had similar problems with another old game where the program could not load some .wav files from a folder.

greetings, Mebber
