re: What to do with a ABC code on a Web Site

0
If you are out there exploring websites for music, you will soon come across the ABC code posted on the website with no way to download it. It will be a collection of numbers and letters that does not seem to make any sense. LOTRO needs a file type of ABC to generate music from. To make an ABC file from the code on the page follow one of the two methods below.

Method 1 Using LOTRO ABC Player (recommended)

1. Highlight all of the code for the song. It usually starts with X: and a number X: 1 for example and go all the way to the last character. Make sure you highlight the entire code as a partial file will not play.
2. Right click on the highlighted area and select Copy or do CTL+C or do an Edit Copy from the top menu to get the song into the clipboard.
3. Open LOTRO ABC Player then select File Open from Clipboard. You will get the bonus of hearing the song before you save it. The song may stink and you do not actually want it. It will also tell you if there is something wrong with the song.
4. When you are ready to save do File, Save a copy as ABC, then give it a file name, you do not have to append .abc to the end of the file name. Select the correct folder and click save.
5. Done

Method 2 using Notepad

1. Highlight all of the code for the song. It usually starts with X: and a number X: 1 for example and go all the way to the last character. Make sure you highlight the entire code as a partial file will not play.
2. Right click on the highlighted area and select Copy or do CTL+C or do an Edit Copy from the top menu to get the song into the clipboard.
3. Open Notepad and the click on the empty white space in notepad. Do either CTL + V or Edit Paste to paste the ABC code into notepad
4. Select File Save As
5. From the Save As window select the correct folder to save the file to, Type in the file name. **** IMPORTANT *** you must append .abc to the end of the file name *** EQUALLY IMPORTANT *** You must also change the file type (right below the box to type in the file name) from txt Text Files to *.* All Files. If you do not do this your file name will come out songname.abc.txt and will not play.
6. Click Save
7.Done
