Multiple Files in One
I recently started learning Delphi, and I wanted to know if there is a (this was hard to explain in the title) way to have one file as a compendium of sorts. For example, having one file called files.bin which contains 5 images, a MIDI file and a wav file that I could easily load in Delphi and show/play them without having to make temporary files. I already know how to do this with a TImageList (WriteComponentResFile) but there are no equivalents for sound. This could be solved with resources but I do not know of any way to add resources dynamically.

Hmm... sound? check www.fmod.com, and scout around, you can 'pack' multiple files to a single file, and play it easily.
.. i mean download the FMOD, and see the documentation... i forgot the name for that sorry
