Prophecy MUSIC.TRE file swapper v1.0
By Alex "Locke" Fong
April 14, 1998

Allows swapping of music files...  why would we want to do that?  Read on!

After a few weeks of tinkering with the Prophecy game files, I managed to
find a way of swapping the music inside Prophecy without having huge
external files.  Why the heck would we want to do that when there's
the 'moretunes' code inside the game?  Well, 'moretunes' doesn't let you
change the "Orchestral Music", nor does it let you listen to the Prophecy
Theme!  This patch took longer to write (blame it on school work), but
it's useful.  This patch modifies the MUSIC.TRE file.  Unzip the
contents of the ZIP into your Wing Commander Prophecy directory and MAKE SURE
THAT YOU'RE RUNNING THIS PROGRAM FROM YOUR WING COMMANDER PROPHECY DIRECTORY!
OTHERWISE IT WON'T WORK!!!

This should work on most versions of Prophecy, if not all...  if it doesn't,
email me at apfong@yahoo.com and I'll try to help you out.

BTW, since this program modifies MUSIC.TRE, something screws up, you'll have
to recopy the MUSIC.TRE from your WCP CD #2.
