REminiscence (Flashback port) confusion

Tried this some years ago, but it was just today that I've actually read the README file, that states:
Quote:
In order to hear music, you'll need the original music files (.mod) of the amiga version. Copy them to the DATA directory and rename them like this :
Okay, that sounds easy...
So I've downloaded the WHDLoad version, extracted the 21 music files from the Amiga version, and... here's where the confusion starts.

There are 21 music files in the Amiga version...
Code:
ascenseur
ceinture
chute
debut
desinteg
donneobj
fin
game_over
holocube
intro
journal
level4
logo
memoire
missions
missions2
options
planetexplo
reunion
taxi
voyage
Check.

There are 21 files listed in the readme file...
Code:
mod.flashback-ascenseur
mod.flashback-ceinturea
mod.flashback-chute
mod.flashback-desintegr
mod.flashback-donneobjt
mod.flashback-fin
mod.flashback-fin2
mod.flashback-game_over
mod.flashback-holocube
mod.flashback-introb
mod.flashback-jungle
mod.flashback-logo
mod.flashback-memoire
mod.flashback-missionca
mod.flashback-options1
mod.flashback-options2
mod.flashback-reunion
mod.flashback-taxi
mod.flashback-teleport2
mod.flashback-teleporta
mod.flashback-voyage
Check.

The problem is, the names don't match, so I'm not quite sure which file should be renamed as what.

See for yourself, these are the obvious ones:
Code:
ascenseur ------- mod.flashback-ascenseur
ceinture -------- mod.flashback-ceinturea
chute ----------- mod.flashback-chute
desinteg -------- mod.flashback-desintegr
donneobj -------- mod.flashback-donneobjt
fin ------------- mod.flashback-fin
game_over ------- mod.flashback-game_over
holocube -------- mod.flashback-holocube
intro ----------- mod.flashback-introb
logo ------------ mod.flashback-logo
memoire --------- mod.flashback-memoire
reunion --------- mod.flashback-reunion
taxi ------------ mod.flashback-taxi
voyage ---------- mod.flashback-voyage
And we are still left with these original files:
Code:
debut ----------- ?
journal --------- ?
level4 ---------- ?
missions -------- ?
missions2 ------- ?
options --------- ?
planetexplo ----- ?
That should be renamed to those names:
Code:
mod.flashback-fin2 ---------- ?
mod.flashback-jungle -------- ?
mod.flashback-missionca ----- ?
mod.flashback-options1 ------ ?
mod.flashback-options2 ------ ?
mod.flashback-teleport2 ----- ?
mod.flashback-teleporta ----- ?
But which?

Hi Shoonay,

I have absolutely no idea whether this is the right thing to do or not, but have you tried renaming them in the order in which they appear in the first two lists? Seems reasonable, even if some names don't match.

Good idea prowler, but look at those two lists, the 4th file is "debut" while the name asks for "mod.flashback-desintegr" which is the 5th file.

It has been quite a while but I tried Reminescence on DS.
If I remember correctly, I used the Exotica archive.
That's probably what the Reminescence author used too, hence the names (Exotica = TOSEC of amiga music now?).

And here are the exact names of those confusing files from the Amiga original game (assuming by the filesize):
Code:
debut ----------- mod.flashback-jungle
journal --------- mod.flashback-options1
level4 ---------- mod.flashback-teleporta
missions -------- mod.flashback-missionca
missions2 ------- mod.flashback-fin2
options --------- mod.flashback-options2
planetexplo ----- mod.flashback-teleport2
