Jurassic Pack
« on: February 02, 2013, 00:59:44 »
Hello

 And another strange format pops up. This time, first found in My definition in blue demo by Scarab. Then it is found also in Jurassic Pack #14 (0003.mus and 0004.mus).
 This appears to be a derived from DBM, obviously. Header is slightly different and the pattern data are not packed. Writing a converter sounds possible, although it'll take some work.
 Anyone encountered this format before ? And if so does anyone know of a program that handles this "SSM" format ?

Thanks
Sylvain

Just for the record, I've asked Stingray and Puryx about the music in the demo. Stingray answered it's a dedicated replay to a specific format. Original file is indeed Digibooster.
He told me he thinks the original DBM file is still around, somewhere, and he promised to look up for it.

Cheers
Sylvain

I've sent him a mail.
Files are either P6* or this weird DBM format variation in JP14.

I received a reply from D!rt!e. He's on vacation and told me he'll look into his archives upon his return.
Cool ;)

Unfortunately, still no news yet. Maybe I'll try another email.
