Heart of the Alien - How to convert the Audio tracks?

Hello!

A few days ago I read from the Amiga Conversion of the "Another World" Sequel "Heart of the Alien".

http://amiga68k.de/2016/11/04/anothe...as-erschienen/

I want to convert the Audio tracks from the original Megadrive version. In the docs I found following information:

Quote:
If you want use the HDD MUSIC option, you must convert the CDDA tracks to
8 BIT MONO 22050 HZ SIGNED audio samples and save it into the "data/audio/" drawer
in game directory with names:

AUDIO01.RAW
AUDIO02.RAW
AUDIO03.RAW
...
AUDIO41.RAW
but there is unfortunately no info how to convert this tracks. Do I have to convert the original 16 Bit, 44,1Khz. WAV-Files to 8Bit Mono, 22050Khz and just rename the files to RAW or do they have another header as Windows PCM wave? Can I use Cool Edit Pro 2.1 for this or is there another tool or program able to do this? - Please help!

Get the CD32 Beta which includes these tracks already (ripped by me from the Mega CD release):

Earlier on that thread warfalcon posted another version that isn't CD32-akiko specific. Get the one that applies to your config.

This game run best on an expanded A1200 and from hard drive. See my post that details the requirements.

If you are using WinUAE, just download Retroplay's .HDF with everything setup / ready to go from here

I had to set the CPU to be a 68040 in order for the intro sound to sync with the video though.

FYI, I used the tracks from the verified redump.org image and converted the tracks in SoundBox.

Thank you, works perfectly for me!

Can I use the same archive for my real A1200 with Blizzard 1260 (68060 @ 50 Mhz., 64 MB Ram)

Thanks, works very well.

Is there a reason why "cdplayer.library" is not needed with this version?

And are there checkpoints in the game or do you have to restart the whole level from the beginning after failing?
