So, I was trying to listen to some music extracted from an old casual game called Gearz, and I find that its format is called OXM. I figured it'd be like a normal XM module file, but all I get from it is weird static from it, as if its trying to play it.

Maybe someone can look at it and find out why it plays weird? Is there a way to convert it back to an XM?

OXM should be a normal XM with ogg samples, indeed there are OggS files inside.
It's supported by some trackers like OpenMPT and everything is correct but the samples that seem to have some garbage in the middle (very visible in the software).
Patterns look ok while Instruments are empty.

I'm not an expert in this field so that's the max I can do and say.

I managed to find a way to convert OXM to just XM by using something called OggMod tool. It was pretty difficult to find: http://www.modules.pl/?id=soft&sid=21

In the program, you load the OXM into it, you click 'check none' and then click save.

After converting it to XM, the music plays correctly as it does in the game.
