    Darkmage has successfully ripped the beautiful music from Super Wing Commander in MIDI format, and the files are very tiny. All 64 tracks and samples are only 141 kilobytes (download here, zip)! While sorting through the server, we also came across a Super Wing Commander Medley (download here, 5 meg mp3) that's absolutely delicious. The music from SWC is very similar to the classic tone of Wing Commander 1, but with a dazzle of flash added. It's based on the music by David Govett & George "Fatman" Sanger, with some enhancement by Joe Basquez, Britt Daniels & Stretch Williams for the port. Enjoy!

    Nice work! :)

    I wonder if it's also possible to extract the speech files of all the dialogues...that would be cool, too.

    No one who'd heard the speech before would say that. :)

    Nice work! Now if only there was a way to extract the FMVs...
    I always thought speech sounded the way it did because of how it was compressed. Well, compression AND not using professional voice actors.

    Late to the party!

    The speech is in aiff's - easy enough to convert and play on windows

    darkmage, i think you may have missed three midi's:

    killbase
    kilrathi
    landing

    how did you convert them?
