What is an SND file?

An SND file is a sound file used by M.U.G.E.N (or just Mugen), a freeware 2D fighting game engine. It contains WAVE audio data, and is generated from multiple .WAV files. SND files are used for sounds played during various parts of the game, which includes during gameplay and "motif" title screens.

More Information

You will most likely only encounter an SND file if you create games with the M.U.G.E.N engine. Audio data stored in SND files include action sound effects, such as punches or kicks, character voice clips, and button clicks.

SND files that store sounds for characters are located in the chars/​ directory. SND files that store system sounds for title screens are located in the data/​ directory.

NOTE: The SND file is one of several resource files used by M.U.G.E.N, which includes Sprite .SFF, Character States .CNS, Character Commands .CMD, Character Definition .DEF, and Animation .AIR files.

Common SND Filenames

[character_name].snd - SND file that stores audio data for a specific character.

system.snd - SND file that stores audio data for game system screens.

How do I open an SND file?

While SND files are referenced by M.U.G.E.N, you can open SND files with Audacity as "Raw Data" in Windows, macOS, and Linux. You can also open SND files with Fighter Factory, which is a Windows program used to modify M.U.G.E.N content.
