Mega Man X - Better Music Mod
Mirrored from: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p=830206
The MS-DOS port of Mega Man X was actually pretty well done, aside from one problem... the default music sounded terrible. And what's Rockman without the ROCK?
I set out to remedy this problem by scavenging out some better MIDI renditions of the original songs, converting them to the game's native XMI format, putting in the correct loop points and attempting to get the file sizes down enough so the game doesn't crash with an error.
To install the mod, extract the "XMI" folder in the zip file to Mega Man X's root directory, overwriting the files in the already existing "XMI" folder. You'll know if it worked just by going into the game and listening. And be sure to select "General MIDI" in the game's SOUND.BAT file to get the awesome music.
