Hi,

Hopefully the advice I need doesn't break any site rules with regard to official material - I am not reqesting or posting such material so I hope not.

Here goes - I have 'The Eye' PC game, and would like to find out if there is a way to extract the instrumental mixes from the discs (probably in .wav format?), so that I can have them on my PC and then burn them to CD, or copy to my ipod etc.. for personal listening.
Having explored the discs the tracks do not seem to be visible, so must be hidden away somehow, and I am not clever enough to work out how!!

Hope someone can help

Cheers

the tracks are "red book" audio - which means they rip like a normal CD.

No Dark, he means 'protion'.

Don't you know what a protion is?


Gullibility and credulity are considered undesirable qualities in every department of human life -- except religion.
