The song titles reflect the filenames of the original XMI files. Only General MIDI songs have been listed, but it might be worth recording the other four versions if they are significantly different.

Despite the filenames suggesting formats like ROL, the music files are all in XMI format thanks to the use of the AIL library. Probably the actual XMI file played depends on the audio device, although apart from instrument and octave changes, the songs appear to be otherwise identical. The songs were extracted using Ripper6 and named according to the filenames in SOUNDS\MUSIC.DAT. Conversions to MIDI were made using XMI2MID.
