Resistance's Enchantment Under the Sea

I came across this beauty as soon as it was released, and aside from the lovely Neptunian theme of the graphics, it has THE most hummable music I've ever heard, and which is also quite complex-sounding and even haunting:

https://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=70213

Of course, I had to hunt down the music module for it, but these were the results I came up with:

http://janeway.exotica.org.uk/release.php?id=84348

Frustratingly, there was no download link for the tune, and as I investigated, I discovered that the tune was actually called not "mod.ulysses shines", but "mod.for ever ulysses" (http://amp.dascene.net/downmod.php?index=12301)

The thing is, the mod sounds only vaguely like the tune in the demo, as just the bass track. I would surmise that this demo utilises a specialist custom music player for the main tune, which allows for all the complex subtle changes we can hear, which is beyond the scale of Protracker. The upshot of it all is, aside from an MP3 or a YouTube video, it's hard to get a version of this tune for Android mod players.

Shame, really. But the tune is still BRILLIANT.

Can you not rip the mod via WinUAE ?

I tried that back when the demo first came out; got nothing but an unplayable mess.

Tried it just now on 4.0.0... and whaddayaknow, it worked.

I'd still rather watch it in the demo itself, don't want to over-hear it. I'm not sure I trust rips, anyway.

Yep, I thought so: the rip has a glitch in the playback which ruins it. I'd rather hear it on WinUAE, anyway.

I've changed my mind, I decided to keep the ripped mod despite one little glitch, that only happens in XMPlay anyway - it sounds fine on my phone's XMP Mod Player.

I was also able to rip a couple of other tunes I wanted, like AttentionWhore's Invertebrates and the Tulou demo with Donald Trump. However, others don't rip at all, so it's rather hit and miss, but it seems to be the only way to get some mods at all.

To rip modules from demos you could use an external ripper like "Exotic Ripper" directly on the disks / files of the demo

It's not so difficult, just a tool to use

Sometimes ripping from memory fails, that's why Prowizard find nothing
