BG1 MUS Files

As some may know, the BG1 Original Saga 3-CD collection has all the music that the 5-CD version has, except the MUS files for the battle music were duplicated so only half of the available combat themes can be heard in the game, without editing.

I'd appreciate it if someone with the older 5-CD version of the game could copy and paste here the contents of the following MUS files, located in BG1's music folder:

BC2.MUS
BD2.MUS
BF2.MUS
BL2.MUS
BP2.MUS

The MUS file is a formatted text file so a straight copy and paste will work fine; I can figure the rest out on my own. I'm asking for these because it's hard to guess the proper order for the different ACMs (and their tags), due to there being so many of them used in combat music.

Thanks in advance.

As an aside, it's funny to see Wistrik sending these kinds of requests to CoM.

I really don't know much of this issue at all.  Should I just do a straight copy of the files to the override?

Ideas?  I've tried to look at these files, but I don't speak Greek.

devSin, you mentioned this would be a simple addition.  Help!, because I'm clueless here.

IIRC, the problem was that the original saga didn't contain all the MUS files that it should? If this is the case, you just need to copy them from a real version into music/.

I think this was one of the things fixed over at Dudleyville. I'd suggest running over and... well, steal steal steal!

EDIT- So, I actually read the thread. The problem is that the Original Saga contains duplicate playlists (whereas BC2.MUS should be unique, it's just a copy of BC1). You just need to grab the correct MUS files and then COPY ~stuff~ ~music~

Oh.  So... there's no fancy REPLACE_TEXTUALLY stuff I need to do?  I can do override dumps.  ;)

That's music dumps, but it's nothing other than a straight copy.

I guess you could recreate the playlists using APPEND/REPLACE/SET_2DA junk, but there's little point.
