    ***I will not take any questions regarding this Guide as I am no expert on 
    technical aspects of extracting the music.  However, anything of importance 
    that should be directed to me via e-mail must have "WWE SmackDown! vs.

                                II.   WALKTHROUGH
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    NOTE:  Credit for writing the walkthrough goes to Paul Rudoff.  It has been 
    word-for-word written by Paul Rudoff.  Also note that Paul has not provided 
    any support (technical or otherwise) for this guide.  Please refer to Rudoff's 
    site listed below to view his works:

    SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
    -------------------
    
    Along with the SmackDown! vs. Raw 2006 game disc, you will need the following
    on/in your computer in order to do the music extraction.
    
    1. A DVD-ROM drive, or any other optical drive that is able to read DVD
       data discs.
    2. Microsoft Windows 95 or higher (unconfirmed about 95, but I know it
       works on 2000)
    3. Three gigabytes of free space on your hard drive.  I don't know what's
       the least you could have to do this, but three gigs would give PLENTY
       of room to do everything with space left over.  Otherwise you may have
       to convert songs a few at a time.
    4. A copy of ADXUtil (Win32/GUI version), which you can download from my
       PlayStation page (http://spookcentral.cjb.net/playstation.htm).
    
    You'll also need a program that can handle .zip files.  If you don't have one,
    you should be able to find plenty at: http://www.snapfiles.com
    
    OPTIONAL
    
    * An audio editor. (personal suggestion: Goldwave)
    * A CD making program (one probably came with the drive when you
    bought it). (personal suggestion: Easy CD Creator)
    * An MP3 encoding program. (personal suggestion: MPEG Suite)
    
    Links to the above can be found on either SnapFiles or my Software page:
    
    http://spookcentral.cjb.net/software.htm
    
    
    EXTRACTION WALKTHROUGH - DIRECTLY TO MP3
    ----------------------------------------
    
    You can directly extract the audio on the game disc into MP3 format.
    If you follow this procedure, the disk space requirement is very low.
    
    To do this you'll also need a copy of the LAME encoder's dll file
    (lame_enc.dll), which you can download from:
    
    http://www.hot.ee/smpman/mp3/
    http://www.jthz.com/~lame/
    
    1. Install ADXUtil.  Extract it to any directory on your hard drive and
    run adxutil.exe.  You may want to create a start menu shortcut for easy
    access.  Extract lame_enc.dll to the same directory as ADXUtil.
    
    2. The audio in the game is in ADX format.  However, the ADX files are
    archived inside AFS files.  You will need to decide which AFS you want to
    open.  They are as follows:
    
    \BGM\BGM001.AFS - Game Music: Match Backgrounds & Menu Music
    \BGM\BGM002.AFS - WWE Themes
    \BGM\BGM003.AFS - WWE Themes
    
    3. In ADXUtil, click on the "File" menu and select "Settings" from the list.
    Set the "Output format for ADX stream" to L.A.M.E. MP3 (CBR/VBR) and click OK.
    Set the "Output Bitrate" to 320 kbps (CBR) and click OK.
    
    4. Click the "Open Archive" button (or press CTRL+O, or select "Open
    Archive" from the "File" menu).  Navigate to your DVD-ROM drive and select
    the AFS file you wish to extract audio files from.  Select it and press
    Open.
    
    5. The program will automatically list all of the ADX audio files contain
    therein.  Select the first one, hold down the Shift key, and press either
    the down arrow key or the Page Down key to select all of the files listed.
    
    6. Click the "Extract To" button (or press CTRL+E, or select "Extract To
    The Folder" from the "Commands" menu, or right-click on the file list and
    select "Extract To The Folder").  Find a folder/directory on your hard
    drive where you wish to keep all of your Here Comes The Pain music files
    and press OK.  You can use one folder/directory for all of your HCTP
    files.  When the blue bar reaches the end, your file extraction is
    complete.  This time varies greatly depending on your computer's specs and
    the length of the tracks you are copying.
    
    You will need to repeats steps 4 through 6 for each AFS file that you want
    to extract audio files from.
    
    7. The full list of the tracks is at the bottom of this guide.  You can
    delete these tracks, especially if you need the space.
    
    8. Now that you have all of these large wav files on your hard drive, you
    can do lots of things with them (wav is a very common format).  First you
    may want to maximize or normalize the volume and/or remove any silence
    from the ends of the wav files.  To do this, you'll need an audio editor.
    
    Now, chances are, you'll want to do one of two things with the wav files: put
    them on an audio CD so that you can listen to them on an audio CD player or
    convert them to MP3 format for listening on your computer or a portable
    MP3 player.
    
    AUDIO CD - You'll need a CD-RW drive (or "CD burner" as it's sometimes
    called) and a CD making program (one probably came with the drive when you
    bought it).  Just follow the directions in the program and you shouldn't
    have a problem.  If you have any problems, contact the folks who made the
    program you're using, not me.
    
    MP3 - You'll need an encoding program.  Most should be able to convert all of
    your wav files to mp3 files in one go.
    
    Once your files are successfully burned to an audio CD or encoded into MP3
    files, you can safely delete all of the wavs.  You might want to keep
    ADXUtil because you never know when you'll have a use for it.
