Gauntlet III intro song

Is this one ripped? Seems to be a non-standard format, ProWizard can't detect any modules from memory.

If there's any docs on the format then I'll code a player for it, maybe make import functionality in my ProTracker port.

It's a custom format indeed :/ I wonder if there's any docs for it.

Maybe Don_Adan can help you with the format.

I think I managed to disassemble the player part of the custom RAM dump of Gauntlet III:

http://pastebin.com/Qa4zTrQv

What a mess
Maybe a crazy geek in here can try to find out what parts of the file (cust.MUS0) it reads? Like, to figure out what byte offset is for sample volume, for amount of patterns etc... I know it's an extremely hard and time consuming process. It might be nearly impossible unless you're a genie.

Here's the DeliCustom dump of the replayer+data+samples: http://16-bits.org/cust.MUS0

There's a disassembly here which is easier to work with: http://pastebin.com/5a0yKwVk

No it isn't, it's a custom format.. The dumps contains 68k code (replayer + song data + samples). The only player that will play it (that I know of) is DeliPlayer, which is an annoying resource hogging player.

Leffmann: Thanks, this is much more structured.
I can already see certain effect routines like vibrato, set volume etc... too bad the tables are not proper labeled and parsed.
One day I'll try ty convert this to C and figure out what the var names should be.

There is not any single documention for it. This format is not "Soundtracker" based. It was made as fileformat, for all crossplatforms. Atari ST / Amiga / C64 / Sepctrum ....
Only the follin brothers would know. And the game authors.

the delitracker custom format, was the only way to play it in some kind of standard method. Even it is a hack..

Yep I know, as said it's just the replayer in 68k assembly binary code + data... The only way to figure out how it works is to try and understand the disassemblied source or ask one of the developers.

I have added some example delitracker .s file for this format for you. Please have a look.

I just made a WAV capture of the intro song using DeliPlayer (choosing oversampling, disabling click-prevent and interpolation), getting 100% L and R separation for no channel data loss...
Then I did some extern crossing with some of the volume of each channel together so you get a nice panning -> MP3 VBR V0 export. Very high quality export, I am amazed!
