    Gunbound Classic Soundtrack (VBR MP3, Badongo)

    Here's a rare soundtrack: all the music from the classic version of Gunbound from back in 2001.

    [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    -Technical Data-
    Format: MP3, Variable Bit-rate (8-128kbps)
    Sampling Rate: 22kHz
    Resolution: 16-bit
    Channels: Stereo

    I should mention that the original soundtrack from Gunbound was originally encoded at 128kbps and at a sampling rate of just 22kHz, compared to 44kHz for CD-Quality. The VBR encoding was to make the file sizes smaller, but they still sound just as good as the originals.

    There is a bit of a story on how I managed to extract the music from the Gunbound game files. I was just browsing the game files as I really wanted the soundtrack. I came across a file called "sound.xfs". Out of curiosity, I kept changing the file extension, starting with .WAV and a few others and tried playing the file through Windows Media Player. The MP3 file extension did the trick and I quickly converted it to uncompressed .WAV sound for easier editing (I was working with a 600MHz Celeron back in 2001 with a mere 64 megabytes of RAM and Nero Wave Editor) and also so no quality would be lost. I broke up the sound file into several pieces, making each full song play through twice and then fade out on the third pass. Lastly, I converted the new music files into MP3 using the highest quality settings available.

    I should have posted this ages ago, huh?

    My favorite tracks from this album are #7, #8 and #10.

    EDIT: Also, if the link goes dead, just ask me and I'll re-upload the soundtrack. 'Tis not a problem.

    You're very welcome. I do miss the good old days of Gunbound. Believe it or not, Softnyx recently reacquired the rights to the game.

    Sadly, I do not have the soundtrack for those variants of GunBound. I certainly did try to extract the music from those games, but my exploits were unsuccessful. Sorry. :shrug:
