I am very happy to release my enhanced fanmade soundtrack for you to use within the game, which will give everyone higher quality sounding music and not just those with powerful MIDI equipment.
To install, extract the music from the zip file and copy it to your ‘The 7th Guest’ folder on your hard drive. Make sure you have the latest version of ScummVM (minimum v1.5.0). For best quality (although not mandatory), start the ScummVM program and select The 7th Guest. Now select [Edit Game], switch to Audio tab and set Sample Rate to 44kHz.
You will also need to extract the first track off The 7th Guest’s game CD, which is the introduction music. You can choose any format that ScummVM is compatible with such as ogg, mp3 and so on. Name this track intro.*** (*** should be the file extension of your chosen audio compression codec, for example intro.mp3).
If you previously extracted the Audio CD music before adding my music enhancement tracks, make sure you don’t have any stray files by removing track1.*** and track2.*** – otherwise this might stop the updated soundtrack playing correctly.
The ScummVM Music Enhancement project was created by James Woodcock to help enhance the MIDI music of some titles that are compatible with the ScummVM program. Enhanced work by James Woodcock must not be used for profit or hosted elsewhere without express permission from James Woodcock.
The original MIDI files from this classic point and click adventure have been altered and enhanced by James Woodcock with permission, to work with current MIDI devices and further optimised and recorded from the Yamaha Tyros series of keyboards.
These files are for personal use only, not to be used commercially and are not to be distributed without permission from James Woodcock. They are intended for use with the ScummVM software only! Game not included!
IMPORTANT NOTE: My ‘enhancements’ are literally myself enhancing the original MIDI file quality, which is sent through modern MIDI equipment and the result recorded. It is not meant as enhancing the work of the original composer and if anything is a testimony to their wonderful creations!
