Issues fixed[edit]

No Music[edit]

The game streams the music from Redbook which modern versions of Windows don't access anymore. To fix it:

Restore BGM
  1. Extract the *.WAV audio files from the CD2 with an audio ripping program such as Exact Audio Copy.
  2. Save the *.WAV files in an easy to access folder, such as <path-to-game>/MUSIC. Keep the tracks as originally numbered.
  3. Download the _inmmdll tool and install it.
  4. Run _inmmcnf.exe.
  5. In the first tab method, change default to DirectShow.
  6. Go to the Patch tab and search for SEGA\Sega Rarry 2 and click patch. Confirm the action.
  7. Go to the _inmm.ini tab. Click in Add and select all the *.WAV files. Then click on Save to save the generated list in the game's folder.
  8. Launch the game.
