Theme Hospital: Game rip
"Plenty of medicine" (by honkstar82, 12 Mar 2013) [7/10]
A great little compilation of tunes from a crazy game! These are good easy-listening music, and when you hear them on an updated soundfont you can really appreciate all the work that was put into them. The songs themselves are light jazz with a bit of chiptune techno and big band thrown in, very much like the waiting music in hospitals. Hearing a pack like this makes me wish Syndicate Wars had this big of a soundtrack!
UFO: Enemy Unknown: Game rip
"Good, but not Flying Armor" (by honkstar82, 12 Mar 2013) [4/10]
The sound quality in these tunes is not great. Although all the tracks from the game are here, the bass feels overdriven and most of the other sounds are kinda washed out. This archive lacks the punch of the original game, even when listened to on a modern soundfont. Still, this will definitely bring back some memories, and perhaps even a cold sweat or two!
Tube, The: Game rip
"A fast ride" (by honkstar82, 27 Feb 2013) [5/10]
Good, unassuming techno with a solid beat. Nothing too remarkable at all, and one would expect a lot more from a track released in '95, but there's not too much to criticize. This fits great with any techno playlist and is easy on the ears, but it doesn't have that reach out and grab you visceral power of music from other Bullfrog games. Theme Hospital and Syndicate Wars obviously spring to mind. Still, judged on its own merits, this is a solid little track that pretty much defines "average".
PowerMonger: Game rip
"A mongrel of a track" (by honkstar82, 23 Feb 2013) [4/10]
This sounds like a melding of several tracks from the game into one file. The beginning part is an intro, the middle an in-game tune, and the end a decent victory or credit music. Pretty good, but nothing exceptional. It's from 1990, though, so one can't be too harsh on it. Has a very medieval feel, uses lots of trumpets and low bass to give as much of an "epic" feel as speakers back then could crank out.
Privateer, The: Game rip
"Its Nenad Vugrinec the cunductor of this Soundtrack? ;)" (by Verbatim, 17 Feb 2013) [10/10]
I didn't play the game, but i have ripped several songs from the game directory of the Game in XMI on my 4'86'er DX II an played it via "xmiplay.exe, today its feel that Nenad Vugrinec is one of the composer, maybe the conductor of the soundtrack
I very awesome quality of midisequenced horror cuts & moods, i love it. ;)
This Soundtrack i will mix with my Sw1000XG and my Motif XF, both synth's complement each other
See Ultima 8 Soundtrack also for awesome performance and quality from Nenad Vugrinec.
The Privater Soundtrack provides some funky (Track14), sentimental / melancholic (Track15, 21, 007)(and dramatic songs
Tyrian: Arranged/Remixed tunes
"just one ?" (by blarg, 5 Jan 2013) [1/10]
tyrian has more music then this!
Age Of Empires 2: The Conquerors: Game rip
"Thanks for uploading this" (by Rudolf, 23 Dec 2012) [10/10]
First off thanks for uploading this.
I noticed my game didn't have any music files at all, I checked every corner of the folders installed.
However, I still have a problem, I can't figure out what to do with the files. I read on some forum they were supposed to be in a midi folder, and then you had this extension to the .exe file to get it to work.
Any help on this would be appreciated.
If someone does figure it out, please post it here, and PM me.
P.S. You can still, however, listen to the music by simply using Windows Media Player whilst running the game ;)
Take no Prisoners: Game rip
"not bad, but not good enough" (by Controller, 23 Dec 2012) [7/10]
1) 19 of 20 tracks only
2) No usefull filenames (watto extractor extracts with proper filenames)
3) No compatible midi. Actually same as the extracted mds files, but only playing in Winamp if changing extension to .rmi. Kind of riff / MIDSfmt format.
Syndicate: Game rip
"Minigun Selected." (by honkstar82, 15 Dec 2012) [4/10]
That Introduction. The music really sticks in the mind after you've seen a guy get run over, abducted, and then converted into a cybernetic soldier. The game music is very fitting of a tactics game, but one could wish for a little more techno-energy when listening to it on its own. This little pack only has two songs. I recommend smacking it together with it's sequel, Syndicate Wars, in your playlists. Both have cyberpunk grimdark feel to them, and compliment each other well.
Gearheads: Game rip
"Grind your gears!" (by honkstar82, 15 Dec 2012) [4/10]
This is a great soundtrack for madcap mayhem, but it gets a little repetitive after a while. Most of the songs have a similar background, an active drumline that reminds you of a ticking clock or gearworks, but they all have their own unique twists on the formula. It's a cool little pack for the game, but it doesn't have a whole lot of independent listening value. Give it a go on a good soundfont and see what you get, it's MIDI after all.
Apano Sin: Game rip
"Sinless, but not Splendid" (by honkstar82, 15 Dec 2012) [5/10]
Apano Sin's soundtrack is brief, unassuming, but still good. The game seems to have more tracks than are listed here, but very little information remains about it either. As this archive stands, it has a nice little jolt of background space-techno that would serve well as spacers for a larger playlist. These are not exceptional, nor are they wretched, they merely are.
If the archive was larger, it could be called a good "safe listen". As it stands, these are average.
Iron Seed: Game rip
"Echoes of Iron" (by honkstar82, 15 Dec 2012) [7/10]
Iron Seed has a great tracklist of techno/space rock tunes that really get your brain thinking of the stars. There are several standout tunes, Intro 1, 2 and the Colonization music are really good. What caught my eye is that these tracks are by Andrew Sega, AKA Necros. He composed a major chunk of the soundtrack for Crusader: No Remorse, and the ear-etching song from the first level of that awesome game "Dimension 2021" is actually in this game as well!
These tunes are not as well developed as Crusader's soundtrack, clearly showing Necros at a developmental stage of his music, but are still great space-techno chiptunes that ring in the ears. Give 'em a shot and you won't be disappointed.
Terminator: SkyNet: Game rip
"great varios terminator & epic themes in this Soundtrack" (by Verbatim, 21 Nov 2012) [9/10]
One of the last great midi sequenced arrangements of the DOS time
Great sequencing and composing Work by Andy Warr :)
Deus Ex: Game rip
"MOD goes out with a bang" (by honkstar82, 14 Nov 2012) [9/10]
As someone who has not yet played Deus Ex, or the reboot Human Revolution, I have to say I am greatly inspired to by this music! Lots of good cyberpunk and techno music that shows off considerable talent from the designers. This pack is huge, after ripping it to MP3 with XMPlayer I had 130 songs. Each song is named and numbered, so the pack is well-formed and will fit great on your playlists. Highly recommended to anyone seeking some dark cyberpunk music or melodic techno.
Terminator: SkyNet: Game rip
"Trust the Machine" (by honkstar82, 13 Nov 2012) [7/10]
Military-industrial futuristic rock. Solid drumwork underneath, good effects and solid guitars. Never played the original game, but these would fit in fine with a first person shooter. These songs do not surprise, just solid music all around that stands up pretty well even without the opportunity to blast robots. One big annoyance is that the songs are not named, just labeled, such as "T204", "T100" or "TEST". Aside from that, the archive is great.
ShadowWraith: Game rip
"Revenge is Best Served on the Net" (by honkstar82, 13 Nov 2012) [9/10]
Cyberpunk infopulses from some great artists. Never played the game, but this music is extremely good. From Marshins to Stardust Memories, the archive has a lot of awesome machine-synth rock tunes with heavy techno undertones. It's pretty easy to close your eyes while listening and feel yourself in a futeristic nightclub. The entire package is sold, there are no stinker tunes in my opinion. Highly recommended, this is a great example of why old game music rocks!
Tyrian 2000: Game rip
"Beware Microsol!" (by honkstar82, 13 Nov 2012) [8/10]
Tyrian is all about big guns, bigger ships, and amazing music. This package, along with the original Tyrian archive available elsewhere on Mirsoft, is full of high-power tunes. Lots of energetic synths and chiptune guitars, along with plenty of whooming space effects, comprise these tracks. The MIDI rips are solid, try XMPlayer if you have trouble with them.
Tux Racer: Game rip
"Almost sounds like On The Beach Tonight by Crusing Gang" (by Syntaxfel, 6 Nov 2012) [9/10]
I like computer music that slightly reminds me of commercial music available on the records.
Final Fantasy 7 Original Soundtrack (MIDI)
"awesome music" (by djmatthias, 29 Oct 2012) [8/10]
Favorite tracks being anxious hearts, shinra corporation, sandy badlands and cosmo canyon/ great warrior. They sound VERY awesome in Logic if you substitue the GM instruments for the exs24 and sculpture versions. Almost like a movie soundtrack.
Descent: Game rip
"Destination Saturn" (by Warcow, 24 Oct 2012) [8/10]
When I first played this game at a friends home back in '95, it was unlike any other gameplay I had tried before and I thought the music was cool and fitted really good with it. When listening to the soundtrack today I feel the same vibe and it still works.
And I agree with honkstar82 that the songs here is better than most music to any new game today, it sure was another quality then. My favourite tune would be Game18.
