2 more gamerips:
Madballs in Babo - Invasion (PC)(2009-09-17)(Playbrains)(Playbrains) features electronic, ethnic, orchestral and even rock tracks while being easy-listen & somewhat catchy score;

Road Warrior [Quarantine II - Road Warrior] (PC)(1996)(GameTek)(Mindscape). Now this one is quite special but it doesn't mean it's actually bad. Most tracks are pretty lo-fi here but supposedly composer's original intention was to achieve this kind of sound for those select tracks (keep in mind that a few compositions sound crystal clear which further proves my theory).

Also apparently all ISO dumps of this VG on the Net are the same or were made using pretty old CD which was in use for quite some time. This means that some tracks have scratches and clicks in them (for example Track 13 has 'em in the middle & Track 14 has so many of them that it's tiresome). Anyway it's up to our mod to decide whether this release of mine truly deserves to be added to VGM Archives... There's no Quarantine 2 rip ATM (or even the 1st one for PC) but maybe we should wait for some different, better disc image? Whatever...

Goodbye!

Got a few goodies to share:

PC

Dad Beat Dads

Heart&Slash

Molemen Must Die!

Vulture Strike

Warlock's Tower

PS3

Invincible Knight

Rocket Knight (The sound all originally came in these .SND files that turned out to be containers for FSB archives, which I extracted (and left unsplit). However, I included the original source files since I know folks like bnnm would prefer to have them on hand in case there's a way to make them playable)

Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3

^Hmm... curiously, both Invincible Knight and Commando 3's music don't loop for me despite being in .msf files..... eh, whatever. Anyway, that's it for now!

And BTW.... since it seems PS4 rips are a thing now, is it possible to nab the 2016 remake of Ratchet & Clank 1? Just curious!

Thanks for the rips. I’ll add them to the archives soon. Also, as soon as someone dumps the decrypted app for R&C, l’ll jump right on it.

What site does everyone use to upload their rips? I've noticed that most people use Google Drive, so I was wondering if MEGA was a good site to use.

Ah well, here's a new Wii rip:
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games

It's this time... again! Prepare to snatch some more goodies!

Kawasaki Fantasy Motocross (PC)(2001-03-29)(Canopy)(Nitro): a tiny cool soundtrack with a song or two and even a few stingers as well as a track from some video (I was quite surprised to find those among CD-Audio). Music genre is mostly instrumental rock with ethnic influences thrown in the mix here and there.

Merchants of Brooklyn [Drug Wars] (PC)(2009-03-17)(Paleo)(Paleo): I found out this videogame existed when a VGM Legacy member posted a rip in his thread (probably shortly after it was released in '09) and finally I've made my own one! I thought it's gonna be 85-90% obscure and forgettable rock score but it turned out there's much more to it than that (like dance or atmospheric compositions) so you're safe to grab this release of mine too even if you've never ever heard of this title.
Audio from comics was included too. Beware of numerous F-bombs in comic #4 though!

Bruce Lee - Quest of the Dragon (Xbox)(2002-07-01)(Ronin)(Universal): I originally ripped this one almost a decade ago for a GameMusicHall forum (nonexistent for many years now) user who later became my FFS buddy but obviously I didn't save complete streamed version of the set (and of course I transcoded ADPCM & Bink files to Vorbis q4.0 or something). Fresh rerip contains both BGMs (and a few ambiences I deemed worthy of addition) and demuxed audio from videos (6 stereo tracks per file, the 1st two have English voiceovers in different quality while remaining 4 are translated to four other main European languages). On multiple occasions you can even encounter clean music in those movie tracks (sometimes there's no speech at all and it means that channels #2-6 are the same), there're 18 such *.bik files in total.
Baddy quotes & protagonist taunts are simply hilarious here so check 'em out! Even a few select screenshots perfectly translate that "so bad it's good" vibe of the game so try them out too if want to have a good laugh.
Anyway score isn't utter garbage either although one may consider them being sound wallpapers which immediately disappear from memory. Well I actually liked Ms01_20=Ms03_20=Ms20_20.lwav & especially Ms12_20.lwav despite the fact they're quite chintzy... What about you?

I was also planning to add great lossless scores from Suzuki Alstare extreme racing & Redline racer to Archives but apparently there's quite a hitch this time. EAC is seemingly unable to detect gaps in this case and append them to the next track (this solution worked for Prototype but not with these VGs unfortunately).
Final result is that most compositions (starting with the 2nd one and ending with penultimate) in Suzuki game end with a split-second snippet from the next track which isn't good at all. Resulting WAVs from Redline racer have 1-2 secs (!) from the next track in them which is way worse.
That's why I dunno if I'll provide any decent version soon. If you think this isn't a CD issue (or maybe music tracks were supposed to be this way, can it be some ancient precache/prefetch solution?) and have any proposals I'll be very happy to hear them.

Bye!

Edit
@ChillyBilly: I'm wondering what *.spr are for in "Wolf of the battlefield" set... Are they original archives *.msf files were extracted from or some unplayable/undemuxable tracks/vids?

Can you please rip Splinter Cell games ? (especially Double Agent) ? I ripped all the platforms but your rips are better in term of organization etc.

@Ultrafighter: Oh yeah, nearly forgot to mention those .spr files! They were in a separate folder from the MSFs. I'm guessing they might be SFX/cutscene audio or something. However, checking out the files through hex, they don't seem to have proper headers, but I included them anyway for the heck of it. Again, perhaps someone around here like bnnm could figure them out or something.

@bx: I've also uploaded 4 new Vita sets (1 with encrypted HCA files). Made a directory with my name
by bxaimc at 10:41 AM EST on January 13, 2018
Aye, saw that. Moved them to the main archive.
Btw, which one had the encrypted HCAs?

@Ultrafighter: thanks for the uploads. also would you mind using something like zippyshare or gdrive next time? sendspace is using download limits now.

Can someone upload my two Wii rips to the archive? Those are the Mario Party 9 and Mario & Sonic rips.
