[21:52:16] <static_> Hi all
[21:53:01] <static_> Not sure you remember me, but at some point we talked about the "Ogg encoded music files for Exult" being MT-32 only
[21:53:27] <static_> and while MT-32 is "da shiz", I wanted to have OPL version which is unavailable
[21:54:45] <static_> well i've finally setup my dos machine with a SB16 CT2230 which has a true YMF262 OPL3 and I'd like to help contribute
[21:55:17] <static_> Does anyone know if there is a way i can systematically playback each song in Ultima 7? Perhaps something in the ABCD debug menu?
[21:56:08] <static_> or some music player that can play them externally?
[21:56:25] <static_> I noticed all the files are numbered 00bg.ogg -> 44bg.ogg .. I assume that matches the indexes in the U7 data files
[22:05:16] <wjp> hrm, I think alt-1 plays sound effects, but I don't recall a way of playing songs
[22:05:23] <wjp> you can explore the F2 menu just in case
[22:09:24] <static_> i did but couldn't find anything.
[22:12:52] <-- Marzo has left IRC (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[22:15:22] <static_> hmm maybe a way to generate an egg that triggers a track number?
[22:16:45] <static_> ahh from readme.txt of the music pack: The recording was completed using MIDI tracks extracted from the two games' FLX files
[22:17:35] <wjp> that's probably less straightforward for OPL
[22:17:54] <wjp> modifying eggs in the map data should be possible
[22:18:39] <static_> do you know of a tool that can extract .flx?
[22:19:53] <static_> http://bootstrike.com/Ultima/Online/u7tech.php <-- seems mt32 is likely stored in a similar way as adlib.. and no SYSEX needed
[22:21:24] <static_> exultstudio.. of course :)
[22:33:16] <-- ttarrant has left IRC (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[22:46:44] <static_> can't really get it to work. anyone know how to reach "Simon Quinn" ? :)
[22:52:33] <static_> ok sweet expack worked..
[23:00:04] <static_> ok sounds like crap haha. maybe i need a better midi player.
[23:08:57] <-- Lightkey has left IRC (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[23:09:26] <static_> okay i guess the only way to play them properly is through the u7 driver itself.
