They used to be on Fileplanet, I think, but I suspect that site has been kaput for a long time.
If anyone can help, thanks much!

I am fortunate enough to be in possession of the SFC1 and SFC2EAW's bonus material discs. They have audio sound tracks on them. (see screenshots).

I honestly cannot say how I got these discs ~20 years ago. I think some kind person snail-mailed them to me. So I am certainly up for sharing.

Just wondering if there is any efficient way to host these relevant files (SFC1 MP3 is about 30 MB, the whole bonus disc is about 400 MB; SFC2EAW MP3 is about 50 MB, the whole disc is about 280 MB). Do the admin's here host download files? (i.e. does this: http://www.dynaverse.net/repository_upload.php still work, and can it handle 30 ~ 400 MB?)

p.s. Thanks to E_Look for reminding about this game, and how good it was. I might boot up old copies and try them out again when I have a bit more time.

Hey 3.14 if you get a chance head over to Punishers place.  There has been a lot of fixes and even managed to get Dynaverse up and running again.  You can find it here:

Hope this helps and good to see you again.

Aw, Three-Dot!
Come on, you forgot how good it was?!
I only played standalone and I still love it (even though several weeks ago was really the first time in many years)!

Hey, wait a minute...

I  have the bonus disc, too !

And I am willing to upload too, if you guys have a site or a link!

Well, 3dot14, thank YOU for reminding me that I got the disc way back when too!
I think you had to send away for it shortly after you buy the game or something like that.

Or if it's easier, with my fresh newly built computer, I made sure I bought also a CD/DVD reader-writer; (I'm old fashioned; so what?)  if you have a mailing address, I could send you guys a copy of the disc and you can host the files on whatever server or drive you want.

So, let me know what you guys think.

Gentlemen,

I just poked around the Bonus Disc.  It full of stuff I've never seen before and some things I've seen elsewhere.  (SFB was around probably when I was in high school, but I never heard of it!  I was probably trying to solve integrals and bummed about the Mets.)

Much of it, I took a quick peek or listen at, and aside from the music, my reaction was, "Meh."  Maybe that's just 'cuz it's been so long and I ain't young no more... I sorta recall that back in the day, I tried that SFC desktop background for my computer... deleted it and took it down the next day.  A screenshot from a .rec file is much cooler.

But the music... there are 38 .mp3's under CONCEPT>AUDIO>SOUNDTRACK.
However, if you look in the music subdirectory in the SFC directory on the hard drive, there's lots of .i4x music files.  Some of them are short, so I wonder if they are "nuggets" or "kernels" the programmers used to "string together" the pieces of music we hear when we play the game or run a "film".

I'd LOVE to be able to convert somehow those .i4x files directly to .mp3 or .wav or whatever can be played on our PCs today.  Where's Scotty or Spock (or Geordi or Data or O'Brien) when you need 'em??  Pffft... probably off kicking the pylons of a spaceship on some Ferengi used car asteroid.

Now, I'm wondering, what I have I totally forgotten about that's on the SFCOP Bonus Disc.
Boy, talk about discovering treasure in your old toy chest!
