    hey everyone, i recently got this computer game and there are complete songs that play in the background while you play. i liked some of the songs and checked in the game's data folders and found these audio files, however they were in a MUS file format. i was wondering if there was a way that i could convert this audio to MP3, or any other audio for that matter. please assist. thanks.

    Have you tried to open the mus file with Goldwave or Audacity? If you can send me a small mus file I can look at what I have and see if they will convert the file.

    You don't need to convert it. Just change the extension to mp3. That's what GSpot reads it as.
    MPEG-2 Layer 3 96 kbps 22050 hz

    I thought it was a midi clone from all I could find on Google but it seems it's just an mp3 renamed.

    It depends on the game. '.mus' is a rather generic extension, IMHO - some games like the original Doom used 'mus' format music, which I think was indeed a variation on MIDI.

    This is not really video related. Moving you to the Computer Forum.

    thanks for the tip, there were like 30 tracks and it would have taken forever to run them thru audition, so i just renamed them and it worked fine. thanks.

    You're welcome.

    There is a program called ProperyPlus that will let you highlite all of a certain file type in a folder and change the extension of them all at once. It's alot easier than changing them one at a time.

    ren *.mus *.mp3

    DOS? What's DOS? Just kidding. I still do DOs all the time for certain things.

    A good renamer (does a lot more than extensions) is CKRename and it's easy to find.

    BTW, PropertyPlus integrates itself into explorer so when you right click on a file, you not only get the normal Properties but also a Properties Plus.

    It's just like Properies but gives you the capabilities of changing extensions and timestamps.

    Here is the Link from PC World.
    That's the first place I went and a search turned up nothing but rental property software.

    That's probably where I originally downloaded it from years ago when I subscribed to the magazine.
