Question Contributions

I was really impressed with the effort you put into the site and was wondering if you were accepting any contributions. I don't know if you want the site to consist only of fan created stuff in the end or a mix of ripped/created. I have the original Dig soundtrack and could send some 320Kbs MP3 rips to you if you'd like. The cd's OOP and still selling for $30.00+ used on ebay so I'm sure other's would like it, but its your site. You can just drop me a line in this thread or email me.

Peace, Love, and Groooviness~~~

Thanks for the offer, but no need to send me the files, since I have the soundtrack-CD from "The Dig" myself (thanks to eBay).

I'll upload it soon.

XBox woes

I could find no sound files using the computer, mp3, wma, or otherwise. So either I'm doing something wrong, or the computer can't read the files. Seriously, there must be a program or something that I could download that would let me read the files. However, I do have some good news. If you have the Indiana Jones DVD's, you can have access to a track from Emperor's Tomb not available on the official site. It's called "Evil Tomb Action" and is a wma file. To find it, put one of the Indiana Jones discs in your DVD ROM drive, make sure you're connected to the internet, go to the Indianajones.com exclusive content, follow the Emperor's Tomb link, go to the music feature, and scroll to the bottom of the page.

Well, that's only partially good news.

That one files isn't enough, but I've noticed that the two free filse from the official "Emperor's Tomb"-page are at 44KHz too...

I hope Benny replies to my PM soon...

Damn it... so for now there'll be no higher quality files I guess. I found a ZIP-file containing all of those files through eDonkey... but I just don't get any sources for it.

I really liked the Knights of the Old Republic soundtrack. Good job on that. I really wish Lucasarts would release an official soundtrack to that. Actually, I wish Lucasarts would release official soundtracks to all of their classic games. With an actual orchestra playing the music. Wouldn't that be sweet to hear a live orchestra playing the Dark Forces theme, for instance? Or what about Secret of Monkey Island/Monkey Island 2 soundtrack where they re-arrange and re-record the music with actual musicians in the style of the CMI and EMI soundtracks? Still, the versions on your site are pretty darn good.

Finally, another update to my site:

I replaced the "Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb" soundtrack with a new, high quality version. It's now a 2-CD set consisting of the music from the X-Box version of the game (which has much higher quality than the PC version).

Of course I've added covers for it too.

Enjoy!

Listen, I truly am sorry that I could not be more helpful with that. And I'm sorry if I was overly critical of your work. I do appreciate your site, and I know you are making every effort possible to make it the best site it can be. So thank you.

Don't worry... no offense taken. I appreciate your criticism, and I am happy that you at least tried to help me.

The "new" Emperor's Tomb soundtrack IS in fact edited together... at least partially. There were several cues that had alternative versions of it, which contained some parts that were the same in both versions... so I tried to edit all the parts that were different together into one piece. Plus I've cut together a closing medley, which wasn't in the game, but since all Indy-soundtracks (most soundtracks in general) have a medley from different themes as the end credits, I did it.

After a while of silence, some updates on my site:

- The OST (Original Soundtrack) from "The Dig"
- The music from "Force Commander"
- The soundtrack from "Outlaws"

Everything including covers, of course.

You really need to get Peter McConnells soundtrack to Super Bombad Racing up on the site... its a little off beat from the rest of the stuff, but the soundtrack is pure comedy and is pretty good quality if youre interested in weird cartoon-style arrangements of Star Wars tunes.

Well, I would rather jump off a bridge than buying that game, but sure, if someone rips the soundtrack for me...

I have been really slow with updates in the last time, but I promise I'll add new stuff very soon... right now I am preparing the pages for "Star Wars: Rogue Squadron", "Star Wars: Battle for Naboo", "Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine", "Zak McKracken" and "Loom". I am yet waiting for the music from "Rogue Leader" and "Rebel Strike", which I'll add too...

I know, lots of "Star Wars" here, but what else is left of LucasArts?

Yo, wasdadillyo?

How do you have the Infernal Machine music? I thought that music was unobtainable? All the forumites at iMuse Island have been trying for ages!

Why would you want to do those last two Rogue Squadron games? Oh yeah, there's some original music there... answered my own question there.

Does Zak McKracken have much music?

The version of Zak McKracken with the most music is the FM-Towns version, and that's quite rare. The other versions only have little music.

Loom for the FM-Towns also is a rarity, though it has lovely music, very near the talkie version's in quality.

Luckily, you can get Ogg files of both these games' tracks by going here, to Soundfont Island. They're in the Music Section.

(This is not a plug. I repeat, this is not a plug. )

No, of course it's not a plug...

At least not more than this thread is a plug to my site...

The "Infernal Machine"-soundtrack was ripped from the N64-version via a direct cable-connection to a PC. The N64-version has a music menu (which was very comfortable for getting all the music)... unfortunately there's only occasional music in "Infernal Machine". This means that - though it's around 56 Minutes of music - it's 137 (!!) files, most of them with a duration of around 10 seconds... I am not yet sure how to create a soundtrack out of THAT. I have thought about editing together several files, but most of the are jingles, that only work on their own.

The other idea is to simply put up all the files, and creating a cover without a track listing... so you can choose the tracks you like for yourself. But a CD with 137 tracks isn't very nice (I even think that regular CD-players only support a maximum of 99 tracks per CD).

Regarding Zak and Loom, yes, I will indeed use the music from the FM-Towns versions... and yes, I will link to SoundFontIsland, instead of reuploading the stuff to my site's webspace. (But I'll do covers and host them ALL BY MYSELF :P )

Extra! Extra! Holy Grail found!

Wow! That's quite inventive. It would be worth it just for the end credits. You could probably stand to remove some of cues, like the ones that are basically just one note.

On a different note, can just take the time to thank you for making your site look so professional and (important this) official?
While making a Kotor CD, I had to use the CD Burner in my Uni library. Unfortunately, the CD was screwed up, so I had to complain to the person in the library who sold it me. Before she would give me a replace, she had to know what I was doing... long story short (too late), I persuaded her that the MP3s were being officially released. Because your site looked like an official and professional LucasArts deal, she was convinced and I didn't get kicked out and/or fined.
Nice work!

Updates, AT LAST!!

I've added:

- Star Wars: Battle for Naboo
- Star Wars: Rogue Squadron
- Star Wars: Rogue Leader

Oh no! It's all Star Wars!! Then you'll probably like this:

COMING SOON... Star Wars: Rebel Strike

OK OK, now go there and enjoy it... as usual they all got CD-covers as well. So, go... GO!

No disintegrations

How about Bounty Hunter next? How much did Jeremy Soule compose for that (if the preview I read was accurate - I wouldn't buy that game if LucasArts' wellbeing depended on it)? Would it be worth a whole Soundtrack?

I would love to add "Bounty Hunter"... basically I dig all the stuff Soule made. Does anybody have the game AND managed to rip the music from it?

By they way, Murray the Chao, thanks for the tip with Elyon's FTP... unfortunately I didn't find anything else than "Rogue Leader" there.

I'm gonna miss the poisoning!

LucasArts' Bounty Hunter site has a few tracks on it, I know that much. Don't know the quality yet, though.

Also, are you still considering a Grim Fandango Complete Soundtrack, or at least a follow-up that contains some of the decent tracks not featured on the official CD? Lupe, Start Credits, Glottis' Theme, Carla's Life Story amongst others would make a pretty decent list.

Yeah, I am still thinking about that one... though I would have to sort through the music yet (It's all ripped, but I need to play the game again checking out the music, to bring it into chronology).

What about the music from "Armed & Dangerous"... you can listen to some music on the game's site, but you can't download it. And again, it wouldn't be enough... so someone has to rip it. (If I'm not mistaken there's an official soundtrack too.. coming with the collector's or so edition of the game).

Another little update:

I've added the soundtrack from "Star Wars: Rebel Strike - Rogue Squadron III" to my site. Plus covers, as usual.

For the time being this will probably be the last "Star Wars"-update. At least until either someone manages to rip Jeremy Soule's music from "Star Wars: Bounty Hunter", or Mr. Simonsen finishes his "TIE Fighter" and/or "X-Wing" soundtracks.

Stuff to look forward to:

- Loom
- Zak McKracken
- Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine

And maybe sometime in the future:

- More music from Grim Fandango
- Full Throttle
- Afterlife

After that there's not much left... is it? Suggestions are very welcome.

Well, there's only one major theme in the Maniac Mansion game, and that wouldn't make for that great of a soundtrack ... unless Laserschwert is willing to make MP3s of the characters' themes heard in the Nintendo port as well.

I just wanted to say how great your site is. I've been waiting for a rip of Force Commander for some time.

One question though. After reading through this thread, I'm still not sure why certain songs from sam and max are missing. Such songs include edutainment, mole man blues, and the 4 snuckey's songs, just to name a few. I'd really like to have definitive soundtracks to these great lucasarts games and I think you've come the closest to making them in terms of the quality of the sound. I'd like to help in some way.

As for Maniac Mansion, while I can't comment on other versions, the NES version's music is quite easilly accessible. Most NES roms have had the raw data to their music ripped for quite some time now. Just check out http://www.zophar.net's massive music library to find Maniac Mansion's. If you want, I'd be glad to rip them to mp3 with Winamp for you.

Thanks again for your awesome work and here's to some more great music!

I'd like to apologize for the extremely long delay in the Toe Fighter and X-wing soundtracks, I decided to start over because the brass ended up sounding utterly horrible, almost teethgrinding - so I'll be using different brass, but don't worry they will be completed.

warmgun, www.zophar.net doesn't seem to be working correctly, at least for me. It gives me some sort of "Zero Sided Reply" error message.

Oh well. Do you know any other sites which have the music tracks put into the Maniac Mansion Nintendo version?

Hey, Ken... don't worry, I can imagine how long arranging the files might take. It's the result that counts. By the way, I've read a post by you on the GamingForce-forums from January of this year... at least I think it's you... your name there is Aztaroth, right? Now, you're really thinking about re-doing the FOA soundtrack? I would be VERY excited about that...

Regarding "Maniac Mansion", yes, ATM is right... the main problem is that there is VERY little music in the game. And even with the tracks from the NES version (which I think I've got) there's merely 15 minutes of music altogether...

But thanks for the praise, Warmgun... always needing it

Yeah, I'm Aztaroth on GFF, though I don't visit there much anymore. I do plan to remake FOA again, though that may be some time in the future...

wow, there's been quite some added content since last I visited the site... downloading.

I await the Loom soundtrack eagerly, but I have to say - a lot of the music in the Rogue Squadron series is directly from the Star Wars movies soundtracks. If you've used any of this on the soundtracks, I'd suggest you remove them. I can't download it for myself, cos I'm still on 56k, but I probably will when I get back to uni. The only reason I say this is that I'd hate to see the site get closed down because of a few Star Wars mp3's that are commercially available. Its not the same as downloading music that you can't buy anywhere, they'll see it as losing money.

If you didn't use any of the official music (I didn't see "into the trap", which is a good sign) then it doesn't matter
