Hmm. So you can't, say, take a MP3 and 'trim' it to a certain length, after the in-game music has 'looped' two or three times? And for that matter, you mean to say Winamp or any other modern music player doesn't have a "loop" or "repeat" feature?

I'd rather use MP3s than download a whole Gamecube ISO.

Pro's and cons, that's what it is.

Sure, mp3's hae an advantage of being somewhat easily obtainable, and self rippable, but at the same time, an adx of the same thing wont have some of the artifacts present in an mp3. Lets say, f-zero gx. if you were to rip audio from practically any part of that game, you'd have the '3,2,1, go!' countdown in it, or if not, a pause sound effect. the adx lacks these, and comes with looping and a (likely) smaller overall file size compared to what an mp3 of the same would have.

It's all preference. would you realistically rip mp3's from your snes games, when you can listen to spcs of them that are only 64KB each?

What we're talking about now is the need to download a GC disc ISO to play music tracks right now. with SNES games I'll listen to the SPCs just fine. But that doesn't require a 1 or 2 GB download either.

Uh... for the streamed formats the files themselves are downloaded. There are some sites around where you can get just the music.

http://bt.halleyscometsoftware.comlike this tracker</a> (if this is a problem please delete this link, but since ZD hosts ripped soundtracks anyway...)
It doesn't work terribly well for BitTorrent distribution, since the files aren't quite popular enough.

Yeah, I've noticed. The Super Smash Brothers Melee torrent was going OK for me until a peer popped up with about 75% of the torrent and started uploading to me. The seed I was connected to seemed to feel his job was done at that point and went home for the day, leaving me and one other peer with 90.5% of the torrent between us. Fantastic.

I also have Sonic Heroes, Puyo Pop Fever (1 peer each), and Sonic Gems Collection (totally deserted) which haven't even started after something like five hours of waiting.

With this you can play the streamed music from a lot of games. Mostly Gamecube but others using ADX as well.

I'd love to distribute the sets via HTTP but I simply don't have the gigabytes of server space (14, by the current count) it would take to hold them all. We have one dedicated seed who I'm very grateful for seeding most of them, but then you have a genius like the guy who showed up a few days ago trying to download 25 different sets at once, all of which were only seeded by this one person... so he had to cut off some of them so the others would move at all.

[edit]
Someone is setting up HTTP seeds. While I wonder why he doesn't just host the files normally I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth... (probably bandwidth issues in case things do get popular).
If you have a reasonably modern BitTorrent client it should be able to support them (once they're up, which should be in a day or so).<P ID="edit"><FONT class="small">Edited by hcs on 02/11/06 04:12 PM.</FONT></P>

I've found him. Two of the ones I wanted are complete and I'm seeding them now. I'm only getting 1.5-2KiB/s on the remaining two, but at least they're moving.

Sounds good. I've just upgraded to Azureus 2.4.0.0, which shouldn't have many problems with that.

Well, I found this server which I think will do good for you and your files: http://www.dreamhost.com/ (http://www.bigupload.com/ is also a good option).

And I also see what you mean by not working well. My SSBM download is painfully slow. This is the third day and it's still at 38%. <img src=smilies/sleep.gif>
