Sorry, I should have tested it in the first place. I though that ogg
support was also to be used for sound effects and not only music

Ok, this is the wav file, I tested it in-game, and I edited it to make
it a bit less loud, sounds good to me now. I've tried to reduce the
wind of the micro as much as I could. It's still quite noticeable
sometimes, but at least I hope it's a bit of an improvement. Perhaps I
can convince my sis to record another one someday if I get a better
micro (the recording was quite some time ago, I hope she still has the
lungs :P).

Converting it to ogg won't give better quality, so probably the wav is
ok as source (unless you are interested on the full unedited scream
that's a bit different from the one I sent), I have no flac, though.

I hope it's useful, I'll try for more sounds when I have the time.
