Today I looked into the D2 music stuff a little, particularly the midi code, trying to make it portable by using SDL_mixer.

Whatever format the D2 makers chose for their music, it isn't standard midi, at least if looking at what SDL_mixer expects in a MIDI file.

If there is someone around who has more insight in this subject, please enlighten me.

Darn the guys who implemented the D2 music.

there is(were) utilities for converting d1/2 music to midi. I think it was a format propretiry to interplay.

it might be saner to point people here and use that instead.

flip,

problem is that D2X midi is not available on Linux and OS X right now, and the only way for me to make it work is the SDL_mixer lib. It requires real midi though. Is there source code available for a hmp -> midi conversion? That would do already. If I could use SDL_mixer, I could also add mp3, wav and ogg vorbis playback and play lists.

Edit:

I've found some source code for hmp -> midi conversion.
