An HPS file may also be an audio file used by a Nintendo GameCube video game, such as Super Smash Bros. Melee, FIFA World Cup, or Lost Kingdoms. It contains either music or a sound effect played in the game. HPS files are compressed using Adaptive Differential Pulse Code Modulation (ADPCM).

Modders and other GameCube enthusiasts may encounter HPS files while examining or modifying a game's contents. For example, those attempting to replace or edit Super Smash Bros. Melee's music will encounter several HPS files in the game's audio directory.

While HPS files are saved in a proprietary audio format, some specialized video game audio players can play them. Thus, gamers also sometimes share HPS files online, so others can download them and play the audio they contain on their PCs.

How to open an HPS file

You can open an HPS file with vgmstream (multiplatform) or vgmstream-web (Web), to play the music or sound effect it contains.

How to convert audio to the HPS format

Those attempting to replace a game's HPS files can use Melee Audio Converter to convert .MP3, .M4A, .FLAC, .WAV, and .OGG files to the HPS format.
