I can't play these XM files, can anybody check them?

Thanks.

Those files aren't recognised as XM files because the header's ID contains "Advanced Module:" instead of the usual "Extended Module:". I've never seen that before. I guess it's a customised version of the XM format. Do you know how they were created?

I agree, I've never seen that before. I don't have much information, except that I extract them from a 2002 game called Pickman 3D

Thanks anyway for the answer :)

In addition to the strange file header, the sample data also appears to be completely missing, so it's probably stored in an external file (possibly shared between songs).
