Description

I am very happy to release my enhanced fanmade soundtrack for you to use within the game, which will give everyone higher quality sounding music and not just those with powerful MIDI equipment.

Includes FLAC lossless audio as well as the standard Ogg Vorbis option.

A big thank you for the countless emails I have had about this particular release and of course to Terry Pratchett for allowing my enhancements to be released for your enjoyment.

Installation instructions

To install, extract the music from the zip file and copy it to your Discworld folder on your hard drive. Make sure you have the latest version of ScummVM (minimum v1.0). For best quality (although not mandatory), start the ScummVM program and select Discworld. Now select [Edit Game], switch to Audio tab and set Sample Rate to 44kHz.

    As both a die-hard adventure gamer and a music lover, I heartily endorse Mr Woodcock’s superb work. The original Discworld game had some pretty catchy and tuneful tracks that sounded great even on the crude DOS hardware of the era; these new, enhanced tracks not only make those old favourites sound even better but, more importantly, really bring some of the otherwise less memorable tracks to the fore. The realistic woodwind, strings and drums give a much more authentic Early Music sound, perfectly fitting with the game’s pseudo-medieval-to-renaissance tone, to many of the locations than the more synthetic, electronic sounds of the average 90s MIDI card.
