Hosting the music.rsc from inherit the earth?

Post by Urd » Fri Feb 22, 2008 6:31 pm

I wanted t ask if it may be legally possible to host the "music.rsc" from "inherit the earth" on your site.
The problem ist, that i have the '94-cd dos-version from the game, wich don't came with digitl music.
Since i have only an XP-system and a Mac, i couldnt install it the normal way and had to apply some tricks to get the file from the patch (wich comes only in an exe-file)

Since is is possible to download the music.rsc (indirectly) from the offical iste (with patch 1.2) mybe it is possible for you to legally host the file directly for those whocannot axtract the file from the exe.

You don't need to install the patch to get the music file. This patch is actually an auto-extractible archive. Just unpack it with 7-Zip or WinRAR (right-click, extract here) and you're done.

that was what I did to get he file, but I meant for all those people who have an original Windows version but have an OS that cn't extract exe-files.

Any unzip utility can handle those archives.

That program is called unzip, just as I explained. If you're a big fan of GUI, just rename iteupd2.exe to iteupd2.zip.
