Extracting Music from a Gameboy ROM
« on: 24 Jan '11 - 23:40 »
Hello people,

I have recently started to download GBS files to listen to gameboy music endlessly without a stall or brief silence interupting it every few minutes.

However, One game in particular is not listed on the site I get them from.

I wanted to know if there is any program that allows you to rip GBS files from a ROM

Thanks in advance :P

That sounds something an emulator should be capable of doing. If GBS files are similar to other console and computer music dumps, they don't actually exist inside the ROM. Rather they are created by an emulator running the game ROM and logging the sound chip register values. Or the "music files" are ROMs with just the music data and player code being executed in emulated environment.
