    I know it's been discussed before, but I was wondering if someone here has all the ambient tracks from both Fallout games in mp3 format. I'd really like to have them... I found some on napster but the speeds were slow and the people didn't have all of the files.
    Thank you in advance.

    Btw I'm on cable so it should be reasonably fast to transfer.

    Good Lord, have you never heard of ACM2WAV?

    Of course I have, but copying the files off the cd, extracting the music into wav and then encoding it all would take much longer and require much more work than just downloading it off someone.

    Not true. It's actually faster than looking for somebody who has the tracks and willing to spend his time uploading them to you.

    The soundtrack is usually on your hard drive already inside the Fallout 2 directory. Also, what speed computer are you running? I think it would take a bit of time to try to schedule a download time between two of us, and that time could be spent encoding the files yourself. Get the LAME MP3 encoder and WinLame and run it in the background while you're doing something else.

    I encoded my Fallout 2 files in 44100hz 16bit stereo 256bit/sec, so it would probably take you a while to download them, and I upload at only 30kb/second. Seriously, encode them for yourself.

    Okay, to tell you the truth, I have neither of the games installed and I only have one of the cd's at home.

    However, I found the soundtrack on napster (and I think it's complete), but a lot of the tracks are encoded in shitty bitrates, or in 128kbit/22khz.

    Well the source WAV files aren't encoded any better. They're 22khz 16bit stereo. However I upped the hz value on my files to 44100hz only because the MP3 encoding didn't preserve the "quality" of the original when encoded in 22khz.

    If you ever see me on DALnet (alias Bionic-Badger, in channels #animemovies and #mangascans), I'll send you the mp3s. I'd give you access to my FTP server, but for some reason it just isn't working.

    Cool... although a few tracks were encoded in VBR and they were only around 90-100 kbit.

    Thanks :-)
    I hang out on DALnet a lot, mostly serving in #metal_videos and idling in #black_metal or #ftp.se or something.

    If you're not already using it, try Serv-U FTP. It's really easy to set up and works well.

    I already have a WarFTP server up, but my ISP doesn't like port 21 for some reason.. it used to.. so I have to see what ports to use instead, probably port 2121.

    Okay I've set up an FTP program to serve the Fallout 2 soundtrack. I don't know how long it will be up or if the computer will be on at the time but here is the info:

    FTP: 166.70.25.36
    Port: 2121

    Username: fallout
    Password: nma

    Max Users: 20
    Max connections per user: 2

    Download restrictions: None.

    Please use a *real* FTP client like CuteFTP or WSFTP. Don't use a browser.

    Oh hey.. by the way.. if you got anime (not in Real Media format) upload it if you want. Maybe I'll serve some other stuff someday.

    My ISP has apparently also blocked port 21, so I just run my ftp server on port 666 or whatever.

    I got into the ftp once, but it only showed a blank directory. Are you sure it's set up right?
    Try Serv-U as I said. It's pretty good.

    [font size=1" color="#FF0000]LAST EDITED ON Feb-26-01 AT 10:15AM (GMT)[p]I saw. You were using WS-FTP right? Try using Cute FTP, it shows up just fine using that. Get a copy at www.cuteftp.com and crack it with something at astalavista.box.sk/.

    Heh, I had to recover a movie I downloaded and burned to a CD which then had errors near the start, by resuming a "download" of the file from my own computer. It worked!

    CuteFTP is gay.

    Oh my god, are you suggesting me to download warez? What kind of person are you?

    I tested it using the command line FTP on a Linux box and it worked just fine.

    You kidding? It's soo easy to work with.

    Of course I am! :)

    Of course. It certainly wasn't Real Media.. I hate Real Media.

    Yeah it isn't inside the startup folder of all the accounts on the computer. Try it later at night (night being US Mountain Time).

    How do you change port in the command line FTP client? If you just type ip.address:port it doesn't work.

    Yeah but it's a bit too simplified for newbies. Reminds me of microsoft programs.

    Why, are you advertising a warez site here?! It's against board regulations! Your sorry ass is banned!! You... you nazi!

    While inside the program:

    open <FTP ADDRESS> <PORT>

    >Yeah but it's a bit too
    >simplified for newbies. Reminds me

    If you want simplified, try WS-FTP. I like CuteFTP because it can recognize many FTP servers, has a clean interface, it displays what is being sent to the console, and it has an easy to use interface for adding a site, rather than being encumbered by different dialogues like WS.

    >Why, are you advertising a warez
    >site here?! It's against board
    >regulations! Your sorry ass is
    >banned!! You... you nazi!

    It's a "security" site, e.g. a search engine that lists other sites that *might* have something that may.. um.. change programs so they work. Nothing is actually stored on there.

    I still can't download anything off the ftp, once I was able to list the directory but when I tried transferring I got and error message. Usually I'm just unable to even dir the server.

    Try Serv-U.

    It may be because of the locations we're at. I'm able to access the FTP easily from other places.

    Find me on IRC and I'll send you the files, or you could provide an FTP and I could send it when I have the time. Oh yeah, I was also downloading a lot of stuff today, so it may have been unresponsive because of that.
