I’m taking a few hours tonight to go through the archives and put up some of my finished/unreleased/unfinished game jam projects onto github. Ludum Dare 26 is next weekend and I want to have a simple URL to send people to to try out my stuff.
I’m under a tight deadline for BastardBlaster, the game I’m building right now for the Guelph Game Jam, so I’ll share my quick and dirty way to convert audio files in Linux and using some Windows software with Wine.
The source music is music modules in the .it (Impulse Tracker) format. So, I used Winamp (running via Wine) to export as .wav files. From there, I used the MP3 to OGG conversion script on this page (modified a bit) to do:
./wav2ogg filename.wav filename.ogg
wav2ogg’s contents look like this:
[rocky1138@atlas Music]$ cat wav2ogg.sh oggenc -o "$2" "$1"
Hope this helps someone in the future :) Note you have to have oggenc (vorbis-tools) installed in order for that to work :)
Now to do mp3s….
I’ve got some kick-ass music from David Newton that is in Impulse Tracker format (.it). It’d be great to play it right as-is as the file size is so tiny. Currently, I’ve got export the stuff to MP3 and OGG before it’ll work.
