(Info)


The VGM file was logged in DOSBox 0.74 during gameplay. It was then trimmed to loop properly. The VGM logs at the second loop of the song because the first loop has some instruments fade-in.

It is unknown what native format the game uses, since everything is compressed in .OVL files, but it might be a MIDI or XMI file.
