There are lots of threads about this in the forum. Perhaps this one is a good starting point, if you're running Windows. (I don't, so I can't verify it.)

That's the source code, not an executable program. It's probably not what you want. Perhaps the LAME home page has some better link?

You still need RAD Game tools installed. As without it you can't do anything with the smk files. You'll also notice in the SCUMMVM Tools folder two batch files (convert_dxa.bat and convert_dxa_one.bat) they'll make life easier working with the feeble files as they're already setup for it. If you edit them you can set the paths to what you need.

Don't include the file in the path statement, just the directory.

Besides which you don't need to include the file name in the run line. Just put all the smk files for feeble in the one place and run the batch.

That's part of it. When it executes it pulls apart the smk files to png and wav

Ah whoops in convert_dxa_one you'll need to change vorbis to mp3 forgot that part.

Then the encode_dxa will be run an convert the png files to a dxa and a mp3 file.

what i must edit in :

rem Auxiliary script for converting Feeble Files video to ScummVM format
rem
rem (c) 2006 ScummVM Team
rem (c) 2006 oduverne
rem
rem $URL: https://scummvm.svn.sourceforge.net/svn ... xa_one.bat $
rem
rem $Id: convert_dxa_one.bat 28817 2007-09-02 12:46:17Z Kirben $

@echo off

if "%DXA_CONVERT%"=="CORRECT" goto proceed

goto usage

:proceed

echo Processing %1...
"%BINK_PATH%\BinkConv.exe" %1 "%SMK_PATH%\%~n1.png" /n-1 /z1 /#
"%BINK_PATH%\BinkConv.exe" %1 "%SMK_PATH%\%~n1.wav" /v /#
cd /d "%SMK_PATH%"
"%TOOLS_PATH%\encode_dxa.exe" --vorbis "%~n1.smk"
echo Deleting temp files
del "%SMK_PATH%\%~n1*.png"
del "%SMK_PATH%\%~n1.wav"
move "%SMK_PATH%\%~n1.*" "%DXA_PATH%"
cd /d "%TOOLS_PATH%"

goto quit

:usage
echo Please, modify and run convert_dxa.bat

:quit

"%TOOLS_PATH%\encode_dxa.exe" --vorbis "%~n1.smk"
should be
"%TOOLS_PATH%\encode_dxa.exe" --mp3 "%~n1.smk"
since you're using the lame encoder.
