View Full Version : Missing Music image download

Since I own an original copy of JK: DF2 I felt sorry for those who can't hear the music because steam has no form of Red Book emulator.

So what I did was make a image of my CD and strip the data track of it's contents (and replaced with a ReadMe.txt with notes and usage of the image).

Forget that last message. What I need to know is how to get it working. I got the image, I got the Daemon Tools, I mounted the image to a virtual drive, not how do I get the music to play in the game? I even went to regedit and edited the CD path for JK and it still didn't work.

Are you playing from a save game?
When I tested the image it would not work from a save game (don't know why).
Try starting a new game.

I actually did try starting a new game, but I did with my current user name. Should I make a whole new user name then start?

Actually, one problem that I noticed having was that before starting the game, I went to regedit to change the CD path, then I went to start the game, and when I went back to regedit, the CD path was on its original location. Is there a way to change it permanately?

Doesn't hurt to try.

Also try using the reg script on the image (read the readme.txt for more details).

This was mentioned in another thread, but you need to actually burn an audio CD. The music won't play through drive emulation because the game uses the optical drive's hardware function to play it, the one that requires a cable connecting the drive to the sound card (or on-board sound, nowadays). Since you can't actually wire up daemon tools, that's not going to work.

I was going on info from this thread: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=973328

And my limited testing (ripping my discs and installing from those) confirmed no audio. There could be an option I missed.

EDIT: I see now that you mention an older daemon tools release. Did they remove this feature at some point?

No, that's not true. The game just uses a standard API to play music from the disc -- it doesn't matter if you have a cable connecting the CD drive to your soundcard. Such cables were necessary years ago, but now it's handled in software. It makes no difference to JK how this happens. It can be a cable, in software, or though emulation, as mentioned here.

I use an MDS image rip of my original JK disc, which has the audio working just fine when mounted in a virtual drive.

Agreed, Daemon tools is EASILY the best program out there for mounting tools. No nagging, nothing. Only issue I have is having to reset my computer, I hate that.


Thanks though, if you can figure out something for MOTS, that would be great. I have the original DFII discs, but recently bought MOTS. Worked on the first try, was so happy.

Hey do your tracks only play once per level or do they loop momentarily? Mine only play once but I believe I remember them looping periodically back in the day.

Oh and I'm using an actual CD by the way. The virtual mounting didn't work for me

It works for me, but not with registering the other drive letter. It seems always to play from the drive with the lowest letter, so I needed to burn the image and do it in the first drive or swap the letters of my deamontool drive and the first CD drive...

But my problem is that a track plays only once, when it should repeat. This seems to happen in every game that uses CD music. The only way to keep it playing is to save, abort game and load my saved game again. Any idea why? Maybe because I have Vista?

hmm turns out mine actually did work after all... I just assumed it needed that audio cable from the CD drive and yes I now have your problem. I also believe the track is only playing once. I do remember that the repeat was not instant back in the day.. I'm pretty sure there was a fair gap of no music before it would repeat. Only now it just doesn't repeat even after waiting for so long. Or am I not waiting long enough?

CD 2 is meant to be entirely different.

On another note it is possible the tracks for disc 1 might be out of order if this disc image was assembled with track 1 as track 1. The game treats track 2 as the first musical track because originally track 1 was the data files of the game disc. This was the issue with the Mysteries of the Sith soundtack image found off of a link in this thread. I haven't tested this image with Jedi Knight myself but it may have the same issue of being out of the original intended order.

EDIT: Well, I just tested it and is in fact in the right order as there is already some data on the image being treated as "track 1", So your solution would be to find an image of disc 2 that has been assembled in the same manner to ensure the original track order.

So it seems the soundtrack loops momentarily (as it should be) when I play Jedi Knight through windows XP. But when I play from within Windows 7 the soundtrack only plays once and that's it. Silence for the rest of the level except for the sound effects.

Obviously one solution is to just play it in XP but I'd rather stay in the one operating system than having to boot up XP for just 1 game.

Any ideas as to what could be done to solve this in Windows 7?

I agree. It shouldn't be too hard at all. The company Rebellion proved that it can be done in their release of "Aliens Vs Predator Classic 2000" on Steam. The original game many years ago required CD tracks for music just like Jedi Knight did.

It needs to be your lowest CD drive or virtual drive, I have many partitions so I can't use D: drive. For me my lowest CD drive is Drive H: and it works but if I use it in a higher letter it wont work in that drive anymore. Give that a try.

I believe you will need to swap K with F if you are planning to use the virtual drive to play the music otherwise burn that image to a CD and it should play in Drive F without changing any settings. Hope this helps

This image contains the actual music scores for the levels. When you played the game, it read the music off the game disk like an audio CD. The steam version cannot do this (as there is no CD) so the OP kindly provided the audio tracks to mount as an image so the game can play the scores during SP.

As for mirrors, how large is this file you're trying to share? Might you be able to use something like 7zip to split it into smaller pieces, and perhaps even distribute those pieces across different hosts? And as for the actual hosts, is there a reason you're avoiding the "obvious" ones, like Megaupload or Mediafire?

For Dark Forces 2 the image is about 200MB and 2.60GB for all the images (Kingpin, Quake etc..).

I don't use services like megaupload since they delete files after a period of inactivity and therefore require me to upload the files all over again.

Trojax is right. Disc 2 is used after defeating Maw (if I remember right) and features even more music than disc 1. Also: I already have a clean wav-rip of the MotS soundtrack and will upload it along with the music from disc 2 to my webspace and send you a link to the files, probably during the next couple of hours.

Edit:
It's done. Upload is ready and you got the links via PM. I won't publically provide my webspace for this though as long as I'm not completely positive that nobody is gonna complain because of copyright issues. In fact, I remember a website that provided all Star Wars game soundtracks as mp3s and had to remove those because LucasArts complained about it. Would be neat though to explain to them that this is just meant to clean up their mess with the lacking music and to get permission to host your images.

In fact, I remember a website that provided all Star Wars game soundtracks as mp3s and had to remove those because LucasArts complained about it. Would be neat though to explain to them that this is just meant to clean up their mess with the lacking music and to get permission to host your images.

I don't demand anything from you guys, but are you going to provide links to the JK and MotS complete soundtracks?


EDIT: by the way, couldn't we ask LucasArts to include the soundtracks along with the game files on Steam?

I mean, I know they have lost the source code and couldn't reprogram the game to read the tracks from the HD even it they wanted to, but they could give us the soundtracks to create the cd image on our own.

Uploading to dropbox now should be ready in 40min or so.

Hey guys

I just finished reading through this whole thread, and still haven't gotten music to work. I found my original disc, i bought like 13 years ago, music works fine in windows media player, but not in the game. I downloaded and edited the reg file, as instructed in this thread, still no dice. I also noticed the reg file says version 1.0, when I have version 1.01. Should this be a concern? Also, I can't play the music files from the bin files provided by this thread. is that normal?

I really appreciate you guys creating this thread and helping those of us who feel the game is bland without music. I had this game since I was 7 years old, and never played it without music till now.

What is the behaviour of the music supposed to be? Does it just play through the disk from start to finish, or is some of the music cued to events?

I'm considering just playing the music in the background in WMP, but if the behaviour is meant to be more complex than just played I'll do the whole virtual drive thing.

No special behaviour of any kind, other than the music stops after the track is over, then it loops a few minutes later.

I noticed something of interest while playing the music in the background in WMP. When I adjust the in-game sound effects volume, WMP volume is also adjusted with it. Does this mean anything?

spacebug
02-10-2011, 03:34 PM
You'd need to rip the mp3s yourself.

Use Daemon Tools (or some other CD emulator) and use it to mount one of the .cue files. Now your computer should think there is an audio CD in a CD drive. Use whatever mp3 ripping software you prefer to convert the songs for you.

Yeah, it's still a bit of messing about, but you don't have to worry about the game itself detecting the virtual drive. Once you've got the soundtrack as mp3 it'll be much more straightforward in future.

well I don't know what everyone is doing wrong but I downloaded your updated images and set the file to my mounted drive letter as you said and the music works even in an old save game :)
However.. if you complete a level then for some reason it doesn't start the music for the next one. You must save then ABORT to main menu then load your last save to get the music working.

Many thanks Bloodshed. I have the original discs also from the time they came out.. the manual paper is yellow with age :D But this is better than having the disc in the drive.

OH btw I mounted the image with MagicISO not DT so you don't NEED DT to do this.

Well I tried this method and it worked, yay no messing about in the registry! I also had to go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Management and change the drive letter of my real DVD drive to G so that the virtual drive could take F (so it's the highest drive other than physical hard drives). And it played music. At least, it plays the first two tracks and then stops.

I've made a playlist of all the tracks from both disks and I think I'll just put that on random repeat in WMP instead :)

As someone mentioned before, it is probably because there is no audio cable connecting your CD drive to your sound card. Which is what was needed to play the audio tracks years ago.

This is a pretty old post so I'm not sure if you're even checking for replies anymore, but if anyone else comes across this the only solution is to play on XP or an older version of Windows. Sorry. MS changed something about how CD audio is played in Vista, which prevents the music from looping properly. This affects pretty much every mid-90's game that played audio from the CD. :(

I'm not sure if this applies to JK, but I know Quake and its kin only check the first CD drive letter. To get music in Quake, I had to make my virtual drive D and my physical drive E. Music works okay for me in JK; I'm just mounting the bin/cue with Daemon Tools. I shouldn't say "fine;" it never loops, as mentioned above, and it tends to stutter a lot.

You can play music anymore with virtual drive as it no longer support analog audio, at least with daemon tools 4.
I don't know if there's a virtual drive software with analog audio support.

I have the original version on cd, I have to put the cd on one of my physical dvd-rom drive, and the dvd rom drive should have the analog audio cable connect on my sound card to have music.

I never try on a sata drive at this time (as on sata, there's no analog audio connector.)

Firstly, thanks BloodShed for sharing this music set. Now, after having gone through this thread completely, here are a few things I'd like to confirm:
1. On Windows Vista/7 it's not possible to get the music playing even when changing the drive letter in the 32390_install.vdf and 32380_install.vdf and mounting the image in a daemon tools virtual drive or actually burning a CD and putting it in a SATA drive which has no analog audio connector right?

2. To get this to work the only solution is to play the game in Windows XP, there is absolutely no way for this to work under windows 7?

If someone could make a mod with the music using references from http://www.jkhub.net/ to make the music totally hard disk based it would be awesome if point 2 is a yes.

RESOLVED: Did the thing which I should have done first and changed the drive letter of my daemon tools drive to A: (no floppy drive these days :) ) as noted at one point here and IT WORKED!!! I guess I just ended up thinking that on 7 there was no point even trying that solution because of no directsound implementation. So Windows 7 64-bit daemon tools set to A: does make the audio work, thanks everyone :)

I didn't read through this whole thread but just in case it wasn't mentioned to make the CD audio play the music, the disk must be mounted/inserted into the first CD drive in your list (for example if you have D: E: F: which are all CD drives... only D: will be used by the game to try and play music) I made my daemon tools drive my first CD drive in the order and the iso's play music just fine from it. I made iso images with stipped data track and just music with a readme quite a long time ago and had it hosted on megaupload so I'm glad someone sorted it out and hosted another.

I tried both methods with no results at all. I first tried with the latest DT then because someone posted that the new ones don't have the right functions I tried the old one but it says that it's not compatible with my OS (Windows 7 64-bit). would really love to have this working.

only problem is it only plays once then stops, unless i go back to the main menu and load the game. i have heard that this is an issue with windows 7 64-bit. i was wondering, is there any reason that you can't make an image of the discs but switch the original sound files with versions that you made the music longer? i mean use audacity or something and then just make the track as however many times you want it to loop?

Probably its an issue that the music isn't configured to loop on Win7, maybe messing around with Direct Sound should do it, but I'm not sure

gordonfreeman1_
06-24-2012, 11:33 AM
Direct Sound has been removed from Windows Vista onwards so the looping of audio cd tracks does not work in many legacy games as per my understanding. It's something of a miracle the single playback is working to be honest, probably there's some legacy handling of analog CD audio signals still remaining in Windows.

rlowy86
06-26-2012, 09:39 PM
is there a way to download direct sound? i know that many windows features that were cut out from vista onwards can be downloaded and installed seperatly

gordonfreeman1_
06-27-2012, 11:39 AM
I don't think it's an issue with DirectSound itself as whatever MS included as its replacement does much of its work, instead I'd advise Creative's OpenAL and Rapture if you have a Creative Sound Card to restore EAX in old games. Concerning Jedi Knight, the problem is that CD drives came with an analog audio cable which allowed the CD audio to be streamed to your computer straight from the drive which allowed old games to play CD quality music without taxing slow old processors. As this does not seem to have remained on modern disc drives (and since this game version is a download), that expected audio signal is absent and the newer versions of Windows have dropped support for processing it in the expected way even if it is provided as DirectSound was dropped. If you find any way of getting the looping running please do let us know.

Also, if anyone is interested in making an audio mod which correctly inserts reencoded audio for this game as the background music, please do so, http://www.jkhub.net/ has tonnes of documentation and resources to help! [I just don't have the knowledge to do all this!]

Well, Usually I havenīt have any problems with Daemon Tools except now. I have not any kind of partitions on my hard disk. My Daemon Tools version is 4.08HE and I canīt switch the Unit disk letter to D: or A: or other letters except E: (this letter is the next one to D: I have read all the readme texts I have changed
"%INSTALLDIR%" to this "E:\\" Finally all looks like these: "CD Path" "E:\\".

But, the music canīt work in the game. I am confused because by the moment I can only listen the music through the windows media player by double clicking at the disk unit mounted by Daemon Tools, so please can you help me? In addition I would like make two questions. When does start the music at the game? Maybe I should play more to see If it works or not, and the second one is, When I should use the rest of CD images?

Every level has a playlist of 3, and then it loops. I dont know it it has some kind of trigger inside the levels, since i havent played it in almost 10 years, but i remember parts where the next track wouldnt keep playing till later on.

CD1 has 8 tracks (track 1 is the data)
CD2 has 12 tracks (track 1 is the data)

I got these from my cd, inside the #:\GAMEDATA\EPISODE\JK1.GOB file.

I'll get technical from here on, so you can ignore the rest of this post.

Inside the JK1.GOB file, there are the levels. Opening that file with "container manager" (conman), you can find the levels in format jkl if you open those in notepad, you'll find on most levels the line 00_soundtrack.cog twice, the second time it appears, it has the parameters to which tracks to play. the only exception to this are levels 06a (5.- Barons Hed - The Fallen City) and level 09 (9.- Fuel Station Launch), those include a line to a file called 0#_starlevel.cog that has the track order.

I think on level 6 someone made a mistake, since it has both the line 00_soundtrack.cog, and the 06b_starlevel.cog, on the line it calls for tracks 2 3 2, but on the file it calls for tracks 6 7 6.
