I /think/, but I'm not sure, that the music from Zone 66 is in CDFM or 670 format. From what I'm reading here, this is a format used in a previous Renaissance demo that combined samples with adlib FM. Sounds a lot like Zone 66, eh?

Using the data from the demo (Amnesia), and the musicplayer they released for DOS, it should be fairly straightforward to reverse the format.

Using this knowledge, it will be possible to combine an existing modplayer and adlib emulator to play these mods. Then I will finally have what I've wanted for so long -- pristine copies of the Zone 66 music. Mmmm....

This is totally a distraction that I don't need right now. Onto the to-do list it goes.

(update) This demonews seems to confirm my theory.

Did the Zone 66 you had not come with a little Renaissance advertisement-intro thing? I remember that the one I downloaded did back when it came out.

And I always wondered what they had to do with the game.

Yeah, I vaguely remember that intro thing. It was text based, and I had no idea how they did some of those tricks. If I saw it now, though, I'd probably be less amazed :P
