(Info)


To get to the type-1 MIDI files you first have to extract all of the files from the main DAT file. The name changes depending on the release (CF_ENG.DAT, CF_GER.DAT, CF_CD.DAT, etc.). The file header structure is:

4 byte length of the header in bytes

1 byte length of file name
. varying length for file name
4 byte integer for file's starting address
4 byte integer for file's length
...
continue reading until you reach the length of the header

Music is stored in the compressed files: FODMUS.ADL, FODTITLE.ADL, FODMUS.ROL, FODTITLE.ADL.

Music exists in two types. Files named "INGADL*.MID" are used if you have an AdLib/Sound Blaster configuration. Files named "INGBEP*.MID" are probably used for the Roland configuration. There is also a NULL.MID file, which is probably used as a place holder if you turn off music. There is an ADLIB.DRV, ROLAND.DRV, and a NULL.DRV.

The current rip may not contain all of the game's music.
