Can the WAV-file be played by XMPlay? What's in the DCS-file, text and timings? Could you attach it here?

yes dotpitch, both files were attached in the first message.

dcs file seems to be something as a cue... but not sure.

If the files are taken from Evil Twin - Cyprien's Chronicles, there is currently no way of playing them as they stand.

The .dcs files in this game are (standard?) Yamaha AICA ADPCM, you can convert them to GENH and play with VGMStream with these settings:

Input File Format: Yamaha AICA 4-bit ADPCM
Header Skip: 0
Channels: 2
Frequency: 44100
Interleave: 0x4000
No loops

Or if the file plays weird after that, try using these

Input File Format: Yamaha AICA 4-bit ADPCM
Header Skip: 0
Channels: 1
Frequency: 44100
Interleave: 0
No loops
Haven't tried all files yet, so there may be special cases requiring different Frequency/Interleave settings.

Hope this helps.

Use this tool with the settings I mentioned earlier: http://sourceforge.net/projects/vgmtoolbox/
And this plugin to play the files: http://hcs64.com/vgmstream.html
