Do these MUS files play ok in Winamp3?

Don't think the "HMP/HMI/XMI/CMF/MUS/etc to MID" feature is in Winamp3.

In Winamp (current version = 2.91 with 2.95 due shortly),
Right click playlist entry -> select "File Info" -> click "Save" button.
Save the MUS file as MID
Voila!

You should search for an .mus to .mid converter (apart from winamp).
Maybe on download.com?!

In Winamp 2...
Ctrl+P (for preferences) > Plug-ins > Input > Nullsoft MIDI plug-in > Configure button > File Types tab > select/highlight MUS from the list > close out of Prefs. > close and restart Winamp
Now, Winamp should be able recognize the MUS extension and hopefully play the files. I know it is not the same as converting, but I hope this will help out. Why do you want to convert the MUS files to MIDI?

Been there, tried that.
w3.download.com dont have such program

I've tried downloading .mus converter from yahoo.com
Apprantly this guy who plays the game Doom also converted .mus Doom game files into .mid

God be my witness, but his program is a MS-DOS program.
When I run it, it cant execute any commands at all and has finished running the program....

Tell me what to do then??

Winamp 2.91 can open and plays .mus files smoothly. But i really want it in .wav or .mid
This .mus files belong to the game who i love dearly
But has since closed down already.
Though there is still the US version of the game, I prefer to keep my memories as my Singapore Dark Ages...

With the idea that MUS is a type of MIDI file try the following links for MUS to WAV conversion.

The "Save" button is there!
You can save any other midi format (mus, hmp, rmi, kar, etc) to a .mid file by using my above instructions for Winamp 2.91.

btw, I've also dealt with this issue via pm.

Thanks DJ
