AdPlug, and its stand-alone release, AdPlay, is an audio engine that emulates the sound of the OPL2 and OPL3 found on the various 8 and 16-bit sound cards through the 1980-1990s, particularly the AdLib and Sound Blaster boards. AdPlug does this by playing music files in their original format. Though it hasn't been updated in some time, it still has a wide variety of support, not only from games, but also from OPL-targeted music trackers.

AdPlug can only play the AdLib (OPL2) portion of SCI files, and the files must follow a strict naming convention in order to play. Music ripped from Sierra resource files will look like this:
sound.001 sound.006 sound.039 patch.003 patch.005
However, AdPlug will not play a soundtrack with these file names; you must first rename the files according to these rules:
- All the files must start with the same three-character prefix.
- Music files may contain a custom title after the prefix, but you must change the file extension to "sci".
- The patch.003 file (which contains the OPL2 instruments must also have the prefix, followed by "patch.003".
- Other patch files are for other devices are not needed and may be deleted.
Thus, to play in AdPlug, the above example should be renamed like this:
KQ4 - Title Theme.sci KQ4 - Cupid's Pool.sci KQ4 - Troll.sci KQ4patch.003
You can use the Make Sierra Audio AdPlug Compliant script to rename an entire soundtrack automatically.
