Hello! I would like to know if a tool exists that allows to extract Lucasarts .IMS music container to individual files. I'd also like to know if there was a way to place those individual files into the relatively newer Lucasarts format .MDR . The reason i ask is that for Star Wars X-Wing, the Roland (CM-32L) music track is the best choice in the game...but only in the Floppy version. The DOS CD port converts the General Midi tracks (themselves apparently converted from the Roland Floppy score) back to Roland format, resulting in lost audio fidelity. Basically, I'd like to place the Floppy Roland files into the CD version of the game. Also, I'd like to be able to access the Roland MIDIs directly so i could make MUNT recordings from them for use with the Windows port of X-Wing (which used what appear to be Lo-Fi Roland CD recordings for cutscenes).
Since these formats are shared with other Lucasarts games, I'd hope something existed tools wise concerning them. If not, it was worth asking anyways.
edit: ...yeah, I have no idea where this kind of thread is supposed to go. At first I had it on DOS...but I'm not trying to get a game to run, per se.
