Assuming I did it right, I extracted the MIDs out of Hoyle 4 today using the SCI viewer. I used the Roland MT32 option (#12) and the General MIDI patch (#4) in the program (as suggested by the SCI viewer website FAQ).
They play great as MIDs in Quicktime, but when I export them to AIFF (on their way to MP3), they dont come out right. The main title track has a note that gets stuck and hangs throughout the remainder of the track, stuff like that. It doesn't happen during playback but appears after export. Weird!
Probably going to get record the sound output of my Mac straight to MP3 and avoid using QT export altogether, but also wanted to make the MIDs themselves available here if anybody wanted to take a swing at running them through real hardware or just looking to have another Sierra soundtrack for their collections. I'm HOPING the export through SCI viewer will have retained the Sysex data. (if not, yell at me with directions ...) Here's the URL where i saved themhttp://www.sendspace.com/file/wdzc4c
Vanilla MT32 (like you'd be playing the game through yourself) would be nice to compare my default Quicktime playback against. But I know some of you guys have some choice equipment *sigh*. i'd love to hear how it sounds ( maybe others too, might serve as a mini set to post here on QS ... been a while since a soundtrack was posted. Pesky real life ...
Thanks and enjoy!
EDIT: i didn't put the track in order, the numbers are the ID from the SND files inside the resources. My idea of proper order would be the themes, menu options then each game. So I'd think 1, 1A (10), 2, 40, 97, 30, 98, 50, 80, 90, 20, 95, 70, 99, 60 and 707.
