Just a quick thought that came to my mind:

What happened to all the old tracks in the APB music player? I remember it having so much more nice music

 

I remember the artist program being implemated to the game and such not that long before i took a break from the game itself and when i came back to it after about a year i noticed there are only few of the old tracks I remember listening to in-game

 

It's 2017 now and I still have no idea what might have happened, is there anybody who knows what was the matter?

 

 

Edit: Also a nostalgic APB music general thread.

The case is those were so much enjoyable (in my personal opinion) and since my fav tracks got taken out of the game I pretty much started listening to my own music, which happens to me rarely as I tend to enjoy games I'm playing with the original soundtracks

Afterall I created the thread more of curiosity than anything else

maybe

 

maybe I remember those songs from even earlier days

maybe the rap playlist stayed untouched since then (which I doubt honestly)

 

I miss Tears for Fears' Mad World and Boys Noize's Lava Lava the most tbh

The two songs that I miss the most are Rational Gaze and Tick Tick Boom.  I remember the first song I heard back in the day was Rational Gaze the first time I got into a car.  It was actually because of this game that I bought that Meshuggah album, and I've since re-imported the song back into the game.  Music licensing sucks.

Was it due to licensing?

 

Remember Rational Gaze too, suprisingly good song if you count the fact I hardly ever enjoy djent and I actually liked it a lot

Is 1901 still in game by any chance or have it been removed aswell?

Yeah the licenses on some songs ran out so they had to be removed.  Meshuggah is a more groove oriented djent band and I think that's why I like them, but pretty much no other djent.  

 

1901 was removed too :(

Johnny Got A Boom Boom by Imelda May was removed as well, but can still be heard at the bar in the Breakwater Galleria in Social.  Jeez the only theme song from the original trailers this game has left is Gimme That Punk.  I hope that one never gets removed.

If they will touch Gimme That Punk, imma start a riot

 

No but seriously, there isn't any more iconic song in the game than this one, there's literally no sense in getting rid of it

also had Refused on the ingame radio, one of the best & most underrated Swedish punk bands, or at least a few years ago before they got huge and put out a hit or miss post-reunion record

Long story short, song contracts ran out and they had to take out many songs, which led them to make the Artists progrma that also got gutted when the sound guy was let go. I do wish they would bring the artist program back though, as it seemed like a great way to stick to the theme of players making everything.

 

If you're looking for a certain song from the originals, here's a link of the playlist: http://forums.gamers...oundtrack-list/

Are there any new tracks from the whole artist program worth checking out?

Not sure if I even listened to all of them before uploading own music and if I did I hardly remember any of them

I managed to rip 99% of the older music from the retail installer. A lot of the songs are not properly tagged and looks like they were added to the music library manually. Still a few missing that seem to be hidden or use a different file format.

 

Here's the XML file with the full list from the G1 retail disk:

Which ones are you missing?  I'll see if I can find em on my RTW disc.  Or I might even just have them.

I'm not 100% sure which ones are missing. A lot of them are not tagged so I have about 20 songs that are unknown. The one I know of that is missing is Rational Gaze, but I own all the Meshuggah albums so I don't need it. It's not in MP3 format unlike the rest of the music.

 

From the G1 retail disk, all of the music is saved in the music.pck file. There's no compression or anything, it's just every single file stored as a single file to speed up load times. Kind of ironic that Reloaded broke the file apart into separate .mp3 files, and then said in a blog post that they want to create single, larger file packages for faster loading. :Ha Ha Ha:

 

Would it be possible to upload the whole disk? I'm trying to extract all the old vehicles and stuff. For example here's the vehicles from one of the early trailers that were still in the game files. Also found Yo Dawg's vehicle, but I've gotten warnings in the past for posting unreleased content, so no pics of that :P

Sure man I'll see what I can do.  I'll try to throw it on Mega or Dropbox if it isn't over the size limit.  Add me on Steam and I'll link it to ya when I have it up.  At work right now so it'll have to be in a few hours.  Lol, the police Subaru looks like a toy and the crim one still has the Webzen logo on it.

 

Edit: It would probably help if I told you my Steam name wouldn't it?  Cilantro, and my profile pic should be the same as on here.
