1) MSA from DemoZoo into .ST file.

2) Couldn't find my key for WinHex, so had to use a browser based hex editor to find the start of the tune. Aka can't define a start and end for a file, so had to *manually* extract 62K page by page .... ZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

3) Finally save off the ICE file from the disk image

4) Depack it.

5) Test it. All OK.

6) Upload here :)

Would have been 100x quicker with WinHex as you can set a start and end address and save off the data between

That's a fairly standard feature of any capable hex editor. If you can't find your WinHex key, perhaps have a look at HxD: https://mh-nexus.de/en/hxd/

It's by T.D.X but that one isn't listed on AMP:

That's pretty cool, never saw that on the ST at the time.

The original, in case anyone was wondering:

I always wanted to make an intro with samples from :

Here's the full set of MODs ripped out. Along with the scroller and the two PRGs used (*) . I've used a STEEM screenshot to number the MODs based on their position on the menu.
WILDBOYS.zip
(*) Don't try and run them though as they're not standard PRGs, just the executable code ripped out of the disk image!

They (The Wild Boys) really, really didn't like Arganaut at all :)

Me? Bored? I'd just bought a new licence for WinHex, so had to see how long it should have taken yesterday :~)

Brilliant! This is probably the best demo by The Wild Boys. I think later they went on to make that game Charlie J Cool on the Amiga. Not all the tunes were converted from the Amiga but some of them might not be on AMP or DemoZoo.

For me the demo doesn't run on any version of STEEM (3.2, 3.2 Debug, 3.8.1, 3.9.4, 4.0.0) with TOS 1.02 (UK) and 1Mb but it works fine on SainT.

I have written a program in C++ to extract ICE! packed sections from .ST disk images:
