@Knurek - I'm thinking of adding tag support via M3U (did some feasibility tests), if you want to hold on renaming.

@bnnm - That'd be a great feature, thanks for looking into that!

So, I'll be uploading two versions of the first White Knight Chronicles game. In order:
Shirokishi Monogatari Inishie no Kodou (original release)
Shirokishi Monogatari Inishie no Kodou - EX Edition (released 10 months later, this seems to be the basis for the USA/EUR versions of the game - there are new music tracks in there)

That's it.

Time for goodies:


Draw Puzzle

Rocket Riot


Twinkle Star Sprites: La Petite Princesse


Blade Arcus from Shining EX

The King of Fighters XII

The King of Fighters XIII

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (Not quite as complete as I'd like, this one.... I still gotta add the content for the Blade Wolf and VR Mission DLC (Jetstream is already there, though). I might be able to get those during the weekend though, I'll see)


Power Rangers Samurai

My apologies in advance about the Wwise rips (Metal Gear, the KOF titles).... I once again didn't have enough time to sort out the files, so there's a bunch of SFX tracks mixed in there. Also, I'm not sure why, but the KOF tracks loop just fine while the MGR ones don't at all. Those issues aside, that's it for now!

@Marcusss: Yep Sacred 2 turned out to be something I'd call a perfect score for any Divinity installment or just any other fantasy RPG, not overly revolutionary for its own good but still unorthodox enough. There're lots of cool sounding and even rememberable action pieces (most Dryad Fight ones and especially Shadow Warrior Fight tracks to name a few) and the game can even boast about some songs by Blind guardian (although I've never been a lover of sung stuff, my constant search for various instrumentals was the main reason I dived in the VGM ocean like dozen years ago). I'd also like to note 106_loc_skeleton_bar_51 along with desert ambience, they're nice!

On the other hand I really liked just one track from Divinity 2 extended OST and that was "The dragon terror patrol will prevail". I even looked up in my leftovers folder and apparently this exact composition's (+ its atmospheric electro mix) the only file I saved from both Developer's cut PC & Ego draconis X360 rips by Alpha23 so that complete ripped soundtrack wouldn't change my opinion I guess.
I also think I tried out gamerips for every single Divinity installment in existence and can't remember a single track from them all. Granted all those scores were pretty alright or even good but still nothing I'd ever actually want to relisten. Who knows, maybe all those Sacred 2: Fallen angel fight loops happen to be not so excellent & catchy as they seem now. Only time will tell...

When it comes to cinematic VG scores I'd firstly recommend Indiana Jones and the emperor's tomb, it has some of my most beloved and overall rememberable symphonic ambient tracks with slight touches of ethnic here and there. Some orchestral action pieces remind me greatly of original film soundtracks, maybe they were even borrowed from motion pictures themselves. Anyway PS2 rip would be most welcome, it's not really hard to do but it will require manual extraction of multiple BGM files out of a big file, then adding correct Sony ADPCM headers with right frequency and amount of channels can be done via batch file. You can try out either PC or XBox rips to grasp all what this score has to offer a listener, they're both on JoshW servers.
Psi-ops: The Mindgate conspiracy can also brag about its original soundtrack, Vincent Pontarelli's 1st and probably last work which has it all: atmo amb, Chinese traditional music, sympho rock, driving industrial and suspenseful orchestral compositions. I had no idea how to rip from XBox and never really started ripping PS2 port, I guess it's for the better because I should have firstly searched for SShd, FSB3/4 headers and such instead of scanning sound archives with Fastelbja's ADPCM player and probably getting truncated sounds with messed up interleave all over the place. Anyway for sure PC gamerip is the easiest plus it's still absent in VGM Archives so you can process this specific platform and add it to our collection here.
Underworld: The eternal war uses easily accessible PCM WAVs for BGM (rock + ambient) and typical PSS video codec with possibly (presumably) lossless audio. I didn't actually finish my own rip, I wanted to extract its big file with names for SFX but couldn't do it in an automated way (or I don't know how to use VGMT's VFS tool). You can always scan it for VAGs though, maybe there's no additional VGM there anyway.

For top-notch original music / licensed song combos you can attempt ripping any console version of either Enter the matrix or Marc Ecko's Getting up: Contents under pressure. Even if it happens to be very hard task you can always resort to computer ports, they're easy-peasy in both situations.
Evolution snowboarding and especially RLH (Run like hell) might be truly hard on XBox and semi-difficult on PS2, I'll disclose more info on request if you're interested.

Best wishes!

More stuff:


Cat Quest

Damascus Gear: Operation Tokyo - HD Edition

From Shadows



KanColle Kai

ALSO! Here is the Blade Wolf DLC content for Metal Gear Rising! I also checked the VR mission data, but all I got from it was a single tiny Wwise file with no sound (nor were there movies included), so.... yeah, I guess this is about as complete as it gets.

Actually, I also want to post an addition to a different rip I posted here already. Remember Nadia Was Here for the PC? Turned out there were some tracks that I missed the first time around due to me being unaware at the time. Well, here they are, now! Enjoy, guys!

@Marcusss - If you simply wanna listen to something new and interesting then you may try these: the very 1st R6 & Hulk '05 by Bill Brown, composer of all Rainbow six VGs before Vegas. He also scored Wolfenstein '09 & even Star wars: Republic commando although they're both not nearly so electronic as any R6 VG or Hulk.

You also can't go wrong with TRON Evolution, Marvel Ultimate alliance 1 (small custom selection of BGMs for now) & especially Battlezone (2006) in case you liked electronic action and ambient tracks from Spy hunter: Nowhere to run (all 4 titles were scored by the same duet or at least they contributed some portion of tracks to a title).
BTW Beowulf along with Dark messiah of might and magic were also composed by the very same two folks, I listened to both soundtracks eons ago but didn't quite like neither. It's pretty much probable that I'll change my opinion on them now... Anyway both are absent in VGM archives ATM so maybe you'll want to rip them from just any platform.
See you!

I really, really, really recommend the recently uploaded rip of Brigador.
Absolutely amazing soundtrack.
by marcusss at 10:02 PM EDT on August 13, 2017
Thanks for the recommendation Knurek

Thanks for those recommendations Ultrafighter.

I remember playing Enter the Matrix when it came out but didn't pay attention to th music so should check it out.

I remember listening to Marvel alliance and was good and I always loved Tron so should check that out as well ! Mindgate sounds good too.

Divinity had some good songs. The terror patrol was that rock track hey if I remember. I liked the fortress.musics like raz's tower music and the hidden dungeon which was ice/cold where the lieing statues have a puzzle to solve.
I pretty much loved the other musics such as original sin and other new ones as they have remix or higher quality tracks than the originals. FoV had some good ones like the hospital barracks e.g.
