Rejecting, as CD audio is already offered by the FM-TOWNS version of the game.

Sorry, maybe the request discription was a little vague.
The request is meant for the PC version which right now only supports the midi and adlib tracks.
It would be graet if it supports mp3 tracks, like FM-Towns already does.

We will not add support for external music files, in any games that offer music via CD audio in any of its versions. Since it would make piracy of the CD audio tracks far too easy.

Altough I understand your reasoning, and in your line of thought, having game support in ScummVM would enhance piracy as well, which wouldn't be a good reason to not support a game now would it?

comment:8 by Kirben, 13 years ago

ScummVM allows games to be played more easily and on more platforms, I don't see how that encourages piracy at all.

Games were often downloaded illegally by people via the internet, long before projects like Doxbox and ScummVM.

While the CD audio tracks are currently no use in other versions of games at all, unless support was added for external music in ScummVM.
