I am interested in getting a sonor ping for my mobile.
Do any of my fellow kaleuns know where I could download one?
Thanks if you can help,

You've beaten me to it! I've been meaning to ask how I'd get sound files from the game for phone use (when I get a phone soon that allows custom stuff).

I'd love to have the radio-message announcement for texts, and "ALAAAAARM! *bell*" for a ringtone http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

on the Nokia brand phones, connect it to your pc, the music suite allows you to save sound files from your pc to your phone.
In your phone, it will be in the media section in the files folder.
Then go to the settings, ringtone, select from media. Or when you go to the media section and select the file folder then select the sound byte, it sometimes gives you the option to set as ring-tone.
I hope this helps, at my last job they supplied me a compnay phone, it was a Nokia and I did have the ping as my message tone.
Finding the sound and copying it to desktop is time consuming, but once it's in your phone and the phone can play it, then it should be easy enough to use as a ringtone

Something else I discovered, you can save your favorite screenshots as wallpapers to your cell also. I have not tried to find a cord to connect my phone to my PC, but I just upload the screenshots to Photobucket, then go there with my cell and simply save them. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I asked this very same question a few months ago U310. Thanks to the guys who have replied in this thread http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

The only ones I found on the net you had to pay for, which given we all have a wealth of sound effects in SH3, isn't what I wanted to do!

I got so far as managing to send the sonar ping in the SH3 sound files to my my Nokia via bluetooth, but it's in the wrong format. I can see it in my phone, but it has a big question mark over it meaning the phone can't play that type fo file. It's in my phone as a .wav and needs to be a .midi file.

I guess I need to find some file converting software? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/disagree.gif

.Wav to MP3 should work on most phones (I think) and there's plenty of free converting software available to download out there.

I've got a Creative Labs Audigy soundcard of some description which comes with software for this, check the bundle that came with your soundcard as you may also have something you could use.

07-18-2007, 02:10 PM
I have the Creative X-Fi sound card, looked in the tool box but it won't convert files to Midi.

So, I put out a call, anyone have any links to converting software that will help U301 and myself? Failing that, anyone have the sonar file in various formats on their PC's? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

My old Seimens A60, four years old in August only plays "Polytones" and only when it feels like it so I guess I will have to beg, borrow or steel one on the Net to find a downloadable tone.
I will certainly give you all the link if I find one!
Thanks a lot for your help!
Good Luck and Good Hunting,

Since I'm not very cell phone inclined could somebody please direct me to a site where they can be purchased? I don't mind paying a few extra bucks to take away the hassle. Thanks!

The way I got the sonar ping from SH3 as a ringtone on my phone was to email to my phone as a multi-media message. Since the sound clip was already in a MP3 format, I didn't need to do anything else with it. I was going to make several others but haven't bothered with it. I also emailed some of my screenshots to my phone for wallpaper. Unfortunately, with my cell plan this costs me a little each time, but it was the easiest and quickest way I could think of at the time.

@ realjambo,

Have you managed to to get the sonar.wav file in mid ( midi ) format yet?

As far as I can tell, the sound files found in SH3 are installed on your hard drive, I found the sonar ping in .wav format.
Using the software which came with my phone, a K750i I transferred it to the phone in mp3 format and it worked fine as a ringtone.

I can retrieve it from my phone in mp3 format.

As someone else mentioned there are free converters out there, windows xp has wav to mp3 with it but it doesn't do a good job of converting and preserving quality.

Only been sh3 player around a month, working way through the single missions.

Thanks Evv6857, I am yet to find a decent free sound file converter but I will keep looking http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

The Creative X-Fi Tool Box doesn't seemt o want to do it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

I have had the sonar ping on my Motorola for a couple of years now in mp3 format,

I converted it with Totalaudioconverter.

If anyone wants the ringtone I could email it to you as its only 76kb.

Instead of the sonar ping does anyone have an ALARM ringtone or know where one can be bought online? I'd much rather have that over the sonar. Thanks!

I would have thought any sound file from the SH3 data files on your hard drive can be used - and the 'Alarm!' one is in there, provided it can be converted into a format your phone can use.

I took the RaM_K_New Message_Received file, converted it to mp3 and put it on my cell to play when I get a text message.

For me the best (and 100% FREE) converter to use is http://koyotstar.free.fr/indexEn.html

I hope its ok to put that here. Look in the left in the menu for Free Wma Mp3 Converter.

Oh and you can find the new message received file in the data/sound/speech_en folder. Its will be easier to find if you do a search for "message". I listened to all 9 of them to get the one that sounded most neutral, I think its in folder 5

I was wondering if anyone knows of any software that can be used to edit audio? I want to make an effect of a destroyer ping, followed almost immediately by a loud reflection off the boat's hull. So it sorta sounds like ping..PING. First quiet, split second later a lot louder.

Anyone know how to do that?

Check your PM's old Buddy.

RJ, if you have connectivity software with your mobile, check it to see if it doesn't have it's own sound file converter. I know Nokia phones did, but couldn't say now, as I proudly joined the ranks of those who refuse to own a mobile.
(Basically, my job no longer requires me to have one, and after a few weeks without I found myself enjoying the freedom).
Failing the mobile - pc software, try the website of your mobile phone brand and see if they have a free downloadable version.

I use "replay converter" which you can download off the net. You have to pay for the full version but i found it well worth it. You can change various video and sound files to various others with it.
