DX-Ball 2 (W32)
|DX Ball 2|
- For another games inspired by Arkanoid, see Arkanoid.
Originally, game soundtrack contained just 4 MOD tunes. Three of them are for title, and the Orbital Flower is for highscore. The rest were a part of an addition freely downloadable music pack by Gieseke himself, however, in later versions, including the 20th Anniversary one, those tracks are provided with the game itself. They play if you press F5 during the gameplay. Once the key is pressed, one of 14 tracks (excluding Orbital Flower) will be randomly selected and heard and will loop forever until either the level is finished or F5 is pressed again. Once such event is triggered, and the music is set to a condition to be played again, another track is randomly selected.
The recordings were made by Audacity from the game itself (20th Anniversary Edition, 100% Master Sound level and 50% music loudness, sound effects are disabled), to keep the hard stereo separated.
The tracks were named after MODs metadata and placed in alphabetical order of their file names, but menu tracks are placed on the top of this list, the highscore song is the last one.
