Try playing the CD in a CD player. :) I'm not sure, but I think it works with the Monkey Madness version.

He doesn't have the CD version...

Sorry, I was reading that way too quickly. I thought he said he had the Monkey Madness version and wanted to rip from it. Oh well... :)

It's not exactly clear what it is you're after. If you have the CD version, it's playable in a CD player. If you want to make mp3s out of the CD audio, get MusicMatch or something similar and go wild.

But if you don't have the CD version, just forget about it. First, the music in the floppy versions is in a kind of MIDI. Second, I doubt you're up to what's required to do anything with the MIDI data. Third, I wouldn't dare try to explain to you how to go from MIDI to mp3.

I suggest you just go over to Highland Productions (http://highland.mixnmojo.com/), get their MIDIs, and call it good.

I'm searcing for the midi of the Amiga version, could you help me?

The Amiga version didn't use MIDIs, but rather one of the first MOD formats - TFMX (The Final Music system eXtended). The songs are stored in two files - don't remember what they're called, but there's some info on it on the SCUMM Revisited page, here:


Look at the bottom of the page.

Yeah! Thats why I'm serching for it ;)

Serge thank you very much! Now the only thing that I need is the Amiga version of Monkey Island :)

Well, that's right, the Amiga versions use that exotic audio format (TFMX). There's a way to extract the songs from the data files. I don't know if Amiga data files are XORed or not (as the PC versions do). If they aren't XORed, you can just use one of the available rippers, most of them can extract TFMX; I had one called RRip for M$ DOS and could extract some things from older Amiga disk images.
If data files are XORed, you must find the XOR key and apply a XOR all over the file so the ripper can extract music and other things. I don't know how to find a xor key, but applying it is very straightforward (about 15 lines of C code).
Finally, if this seems too complicated, you can download the music from SoundFont Island (there's a link at Mojo) :)

the Mac version uses midi files but there was a file called "iMuse Setups" which had all the little sound patches which were used for the various instruments. It sounded pretty good, actually. Far better than any SoundBlaster at the time could do (though probably inferior to the MODs of the Amiga one). So I guess it was like MOD files, except that they all drew on one common library for the instrument samples instead of it being file specific.

I have MP3s of all Monkey Island pieces (ranging from part 1 to 4)... it's about 7 hours of music. I've even created CD-covers for all of them (part 1 on one CD, part 2 - 4 each on two CDs). I've converted the MIDIs from part 2 with my YAMAHA-XG soft synth... they sound all right.

Well, if someone has about 300 MB of webspace for me to upload the files to... I would upload them.

Jake, Mac version uses mods too, not midi ;)

I suppose, but I thought MOD files had their instrument sets embedded within each song file. Not that I know anything :)

youre right i'm abusing the MOD term. however they're too much cheap to be called midi, each note is composed of value (no microtones), velocity and duration. tha't all. But it sounds cool

It's simply write "take mod from Amiga Version"
How to extract from an adf to Pc ?

wouldn't it be insanely great if there was an application which could extract the correct samples from the iMuse-file, and combine it with the actual MIDI-file, and the result would be a perfect sounding MOD-file? I know it is impossible, but think of it! :)

Also, Thyphoon or whatever your name is, you can get the Monkey Island 1 CD-edition Songs at the SCUMM Bar download page (http://www.scummbar.com/resources/downloads/mp3.php). They have the "important" ones anyway. You're not going to be able to find the ambient forest music tracks, etc on there. :)

do I have to extract ?
Do I have to rename ?
