Today I am very happy to release version 2.1 of my enhanced soundtrack for you to use within the game, which will give everyone higher quality sounding music and not just those with powerful MIDI equipment.
Version 2.1 includes FLAC lossless audio as well as the standard Ogg Vorbis option and features improved audio mastering with slightly reduced reverb. I am still searching for the complete MIDI soundtrack at the correct slightly slower tempo, so if you have any assets that would help – please contact me.
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.
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.

Great work – sounds so much better!
Thanks Bob :) Glad you are enjoying it!
Many thanks for this, it makes the music sound glorious!
I have one question, in your sample video above for the music, if the scene where Rincewind is woken from sleep. On my version there is no audio played there, it appears as a subtitle. and then the audio kicks in to say the chancellor wants to see him. Which version of the CD is this? I understand from http://www.lspace.org/games/discworld/faq.html that there are at least 3 versions.
Really pleased you are enjoying the soundtrack.
I have heard about other versions and some other language variants that for some reason play the tracks in a different order :/ It could be a bug you are experiencing, although my copy of Discworld is very old so would have thought it would be version 1 with the bugs also. May be worth copying the files from your Discworld CD over again to your ScummVM folders to ensure everything is there including the missing sound effect.
Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.
I was so surprised how easy it was to just drop your enhanced music in and just have it work. Totally unexpected.
Regarding the copying the files from the disc I shall give that a try, cheers for the tip.
Wow, Great! Thank you!
