When making custom music, some modules take up more disk space than really required. If you visit the old “Daily Carrot” (Yah, maybe it was daily the day they made it :P) and look in the downloads section, you will find the JCS Utilites. Finding the program isn’t hard, it is the only one.
Download that program then move it to your JJ2 Directory.
Now go to Start and then Run…
Type in command (this will open DOS)
Now chances are it will be in the C:\WINDOWS\ Directory.
If so (you probably know this if you have ever used DOS) type in
Now enter CD Games\Jazz2 (or whatever your directory is)
Open your JJ2 Directory and Right click and select Sort by file type, and scroll down to your modules.
You will need file extensions on unless you know it by heart.
(To turn them on go to Tools, then Folder Options and click the View tab and uncheck the Hide File Extensions for known file types.)
Now find the file name and extension of the module you want to convert to J2B file format.
Let’s say you want to convert SpazBoy.it to SpazBoy.j2b:
Enter ‘mod2j2b SpazBoy.it’
It will convert it to SpazBoy.j2b, making it a much smaller file, and won’t lose any quality.
Sometimes, it won’t downsize it much, but it will some.
You might want to do this only if you are just using it for a level, if you are making custom music then I don’t because people won’t like having to find out a way to play it in j2b format.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
