SCI Resource Viewer (ZIP file) [368 KB] - Unversioned. Also opens AGI resources.
But it uses the same link (v1) for both versions.
This is quite a problem as there's a huge difference between them. Only the unversioned one can actually extract resources (in raw form).
All you need to do is remove the "1" from ...1.zip and you'll be all clear.
Can you please fix it?

The unversioned one can extract raw resources, but its Sound code is bugged and doesn't play all channels/instruments. It extracts corrupted and exports to MIDI with the same problems. A shame. But that's certainly why both versions are important to have.

Someone seems to have fixed the link, thanks!
If what you say is true, it should be mentioned there.

I think it kind of flew under the radar. I only remembered because I tried using it to do just that a few weeks ago and remembered about the bug. It was the only unfortunate part of that version. If that wasn't a problem there'd be no need to have V1.

Keep in mind that the sci subdomain is largely abandoned as the reason for it has been replaced by the wiki.

http://sciwiki.sierrahelp.com//index.ph ... _Utilities doesn't even mention SCI Resource Viewer - can you please add it there (and everything else that might be missing)?

And then perhaps consider deleting the largely abandoned subdomain - just put there a link to the wiki or redirect.

It seems it only mentions 2 versions out of 3 - it misses the unversioned GUI that can actually export resources.

Can you mention to this wiki article from the previous wiki article?
