> Hey Olaf!
> Like I told you, I've been trying to extract the old soundtracks from RA1, but the problem is I don't have the CDs; my bro does, so I'm kinda doing this the hard way. Anyways, he got the XCC mixer 1.21 and run a search for scores.mix, but he didn't find it. There is however a aud.mix in the TEN subdir, which is only 1 meg, so that couldn't be it. Now there's only 1 mix file in the whole CD, namely main.mix about 440megs in size. There is a problem however: when he tried to open it, he told me he was getting some 16bit stuff and he couldn't see any files in that mix. He said that everything was in "hexadecimal form" if I remember correctly. I even asked him to download the XCC Mix Editor Utility incase Mixer isn't configured for the old mix files, but that got him the same hex results. Could you plz tell me how to go on about getting the files (which if I'm correctly informed - cause I don't remember - are in the .AUD file format)? I made him try changing the format in the XCC Mixer's options (View->Game->Red Alert), but frankly I don't know what that does, so I'm not sure whether that was a move in the right direction.
> I'd appreciate any help.
He needs to delete all "global mix database.dat" files on his HDD, extract a new one from the ZIP and start XCC Mixer again.
> Sorry to be keeping this up here. Maybe this should be taken elsewhere from now on, so that other people trying to get informed about the new MF won't be annoyed by this. If so, plz try contacting me through BA.org, or tell me if you'd like me use e-mails.
This forum is fine for this stuff.
