So is this only going to be MIDI or what?
I've got a huge collection of MP3 music files that could be used, but if it's limited to MIDI I still have some stuff I could contribute.

As far as I know, Abandonia Frequency will play only music in MP3 format. But there are conversion tools, so all is acceptable :ok:

You know a freeware conversion tool by any chance? I would love to have it! :)

Winamp Basic is for free.

Seems like I should dust out my game music directory. Only PC game tunes allowed or also console/handheld stuff?
Hehehehheheheh. I sent in a lot of LucasArts music.

Yep, versions 2.xx are good enough for conversion. You can either use the Disk Writer plugin (inluded in the Winamp installation) to convert to Wave format and then use another program to compress to MP3 or use LAME plugin to output directly into MP3.
Midi files can be converted into MP3's that way too, if you choose the right synthethiser option for the MIDI plugin.

if you say that the radio will play both MIDI and MP3... then you just put yourself into helluva trouble. I have oodles of both kinds of files with game music. :evil:

midi's are also a lot smaller in bytesize.

Tracker formats hold the middle ground, though. But I understand they are not an option?

The problem is, from what I saw so far, shoutcast/icecast can only stream mp3 format in a specified bitrate.... I'm not sure there is an on-the-fly converter from midi to mp3, but I believe all playable files will need to be in mp3 format.

ok sounds fair enough.

Yes Crash Bandicoot Three is abandoned I think.
