For the next file, read from there until the next, etc.

Still no idea where the hell those name table offsets come from, but since monkey1.pak had the file table in the same order as the actual file content (while monkey2.pak doesn't), there's probably a bug there, and they never actually use the filename table offsets in either game.
Thanks for that Serge, I've only really looked at the audio stuff this evening

Thanks to Serge I've updated Monkey Island Explorer to support MI2-SE. Its not fully optimised or anything yet - but it'll work for browsing the pak and extracting images and files.

It'll also work with the Xbox (if you use the XBDecompress tool) and iPhone versions should you feel the need to delve into them.

Get it here.
