You can decompress the VGZ files using standard tools like gzip, 7z or WinRAR.
And unless you want to hex-edit the VGMs, there should be really no reason to decompress them, as all programs that handle VGMs should support them as VGZ as well.

Hello,

So, regarding of my question, I wasn't talking about the zip file we can download directly from the browser, sorry if I did not explained well, my mistake. I was talking about the sound file. It has been compressed before the zip file I suppose.

For this file here:

https://vgmrips.net/packs/pack/dragon-s ... o-system-2

you will notice that the original file was compressed. So, my question would be how can I get the file without been compressed. (Not the zip file, the original file).

Thank you very much :)

vgm_cmp "compresses" by removing redundant sound chip instructions. vgm_sro "compresses" by removing unused data from the sound chip sample ROMs. (e.g. voice clips not used by the music)
Both tools remove data and it is not possible to reverse that process.

There is no newer version. I didn't work on vgm2mid since that date.

thank you for your answer.
It's a shame, but I hope it will come back someday.
In this version, there are some midi parts where the score is missing, so please improve it.

Feature suggestion for vgm_tt: don't transfer tag parts the user specifies at run time (like Ripper).
