How to Extract and Edit .NAZ Files from Total Overdose
Total Overdose is a third-person shooter video game that was released in 2005 for PlayStation 2, Xbox and Windows. The game features a lot of action, humor and Mexican culture. One of the aspects that makes the game unique is its soundtrack, which includes various genres of music such as rock, hip hop, mariachi and reggaeton.
Some of the music files are stored in .NAZ archives, which are compressed and encrypted files that contain OGG audio files. These files are located in the sound folder of the game installation directory. For example, blocks.naz contains the music for the main menu and some missions.
If you want to extract or edit these files, you will need some tools and knowledge. Here are some steps that you can follow:
Download and install Game Extractor[^1^], a program that can read and write thousands of game archives. You can use the free version or buy the full version for more features.
Open Game Extractor and select Open Archive. Browse to the sound folder of Total Overdose and select the .NAZ file that you want to open.
You will see a list of OGG files inside the archive. You can preview them by double-clicking on them or extract them by selecting them and clicking on Extract Selected.
If you want to edit the OGG files, you will need an audio editor such as Audacity[^2^]. You can open the OGG files with Audacity and make any changes that you want, such as trimming, mixing, adding effects, etc.
If you want to replace the original OGG files with your edited ones, you will need to rename them exactly as they were in the .NAZ archive. For example, if you edited menu.ogg, you will need to save it as menu.ogg.
Open Game Extractor again and select Create New Archive. Choose Total Overdose .NAZ Archive as the archive type and select a destination folder for your new archive.
Add your edited OGG files to the new archive by clicking on Add Files. Make sure that they have the same names as in the original archive.
Click on Create Archive and wait for the process to finish.
Rename your new archive exactly as the original one. For example, if you edited blocks.naz, you will need to save it as blocks.naz.
Copy your new archive to the sound folder of Total Overdose and overwrite the original one.
Launch Total Overdose and enjoy your custom music!
Note: This method may not work for all .NAZ files or all versions of Total Overdose. Some .NAZ files may have additional encryption or protection that prevents them from being opened or modified. Some versions of Total Overdose may check for file integrity and refuse to run if any file is altered. Use this method at your own risk and make backups of your original files before making any changes. 061ffe29dd
