discworldtitleRecently, the team at ScummVM announced support for the original Discworld point and click adventure including its sequel. Today I am very happy to release version 2.0 of my enhanced soundtrack for you to use with the game, which will give everyone superior sounding music and not just those with powerful MIDI equipment.

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 SVN version of ScummVM from their website or version 1.0 or later (when it is released). 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.

If you enjoy my enhancements, please consider donating.

Webmasters: Please do not link to the files directly, instead link to this page!

    I've put the Discworld on the hard drive (C:), unrar-ed the tracks, putted them in the "Discworld" file (the data of the game). Now I think I need to EDIT the game via scummvm. What I must do now?

      You can if you wish alter the audio rate to increase the quality of the music from the default, however this is not essential. Instructions are in the article above.

      Then you should be able to run the game with my enhanced music featured.

    I've done that and… nothing. Do I need to put everything in default mode in the audio tab?

    Thanks a lot for this wonderful work! The music are superb, very best of original in my opinion, congratulations! I've played this game at the time of PS1 and some years later I found it also for PC, and it always stayed in my heart, as also the second chapter (the third, "Noir", a little less, but it was nice anyway). Thanks again from Italy, will now play more willingly!
    (Waiting for a remake in HD, as already have done for Monkey Island 1 and 2! You know something about it? I hope someone deal with it!)

    I copied the files in the discworld folder but I have no speech sound at all. The rest works fine but when i go to the audio tab, then the text and speech option is grey.

      Did this only happen 'after' you copied the music files to the folder or was this also the case before?

        No originaly I had no speech sound and I thought by copying your files it would solve this issue.

          The files I created are for the Music only, this does not include voice or sound effects. I recommend you post on the ScummVM forum if you are still having problems.

    Hiya, I’m really confused about this; are you trying to create a format of Discworld that will work? Or is this just the soundtrack….? (am so desperate to play this game again!)

      This is an enhanced soundtrack for use within the game using ScummVM software.

      Using ScummVM, many point and click adventures including Discworld are supported as long as you own the original CD / floppy disks.

      There was talk of Discworld becoming Freeware (free to download) at one point, but that appears to have stalled for the time being.
