Just wondering, but is it possible to get the MIDI music files using the first BGM extractor tool? Or is everything limited to WAV extraction? --ArseneLupin3 15:50, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

The midi files are in the main .dat file. You just have to use a touhou .dat extractor. 17:17, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
Gotcha. Thanks a load. Oh, and if anybody's wondering why I want the MIDI files, I'm going to extract the notes from them and turn them into sheet music. --ArseneLupin3 22:49, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
...Well, now I'm stuck on which tool to use. Would I be fine using the Patch Making/Extraction tool, or do I need something else? --ArseneLupin3 02:44, 15 August 2008 (UTC) works with all official touhou games, including SWR and SA demo, plus patchcon. 05:48, 15 August 2008 (UTC)
Great! I just got the MIDIs now. Thanks a lot, you were very helpful. --ArseneLupin3 17:38, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

DAT packer?

Are there any DAT packers out there, as opposed to DAT extractors? --RufusQ 15:00, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Hey someone answer him. I'm looking for an IaMP datpacker myself.

Yeah, there is a DAT packer, but it only works on select versions, all the info is with the file: --ZeikJT 09:06, July 3, 2010 (UTC)

How to use the BGM Extractors

Question: How do you use the Music Extractors?

I'm seconding this question. The music in the Scarlet Weather Rhapsody demo is beyond awesome, but I can't figure out how to work that .wav extractor to get at it. I followed the instructions in the readme, but it didn't do anything...

How do I work another touhou bgm extractor?It just automatically closes each time I open it. It doesn't even have that "(insert program here) has encountered a problem and needs to close..." message.

I'll try to put some useable info into the newly created BGM page. Theultramage 16:54, 23 August 2009 (UTC)


A page called "random things" is a terrible thing to have in an encyclopedia. These kinds of things should be easier to find and linked more often from important pages. Firstly, might I suggest an overarching Tools page we can link to from the front page? Darkslime 19:55, August 23, 2010 (UTC)

Touhou DAT extractor

The link above is dead for the DAT extractor, is there some mirror to the file? I want to get the MIDIs for remixing purposes. Thanks, Heart's Soul 18:13, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

Download BrightMoon instead, it does the same job. Master Bigode 19:25, October 26, 2010 (UTC)
