Ive altered all of the music files for Amnesia to attempt to replicate a sortof surround sound system on standard 2.1/2.0 pc speaker systems or higher (quadraphonic etc. "expands" the audio), THIS IS NOT FOR HEADPHONES (though with the new update, you may find it enhances the experience anyway). If you enjoy it or think it significantly enhances the Amnesia experience, tell me about it via comment, please rate this mod, it will be greatly appreciated... thank you all for trying this out, keeping my ranking higher than I previously ever would have expected.

Description

(2.0.0.0) UPDATE! Audio has been completely re-worked, the process of manipulation unto the audio is now subject to much more quality control, instead of some audio sounding better than other(s) now, (proclaimed by me) pretty much all of the audio sounds equally immersive/"surround-ish". A better encoder has also been used for building the sound files, higher quality than the default vorbis encoder used previously. By the way, DO NOT ROLLBACK TO THE PREVIOUS VERSION, you will lose all of the original sound files. Enjoy, please tell me what you think, comments and ratings are at this point (7/19/2012) are not very abundant and I like to hear what those of you who download my content think of it. Here is the Installer: It backs up all previous audio files and if you choose to uninstall this modification, it will restore all the previous audio files. Unfortunately some picky antivirus programs will react to the way this program is run.

old hat:
Unfortunately your antivirus software might complain because my installer is "deemed malicious" or something like that, well its not true. The reason for this false alarm is that I use Wilson WindowWare's Winbatch (http://www.windowware.com/) to script this installer, when the script is compiled, there is no built in interpreter for winbatch (in windows); so the exe file is merely compiled with an interpreter built in. Some clever malicious software recompiles itself in ram to avoid detection by antivirus software. The executible for the installer contains a copy of the original source of the program which is loaded in such a manor that it may appear to be malicious, but its not... I apologise for any inconveniences.

thanks for the screenshot, I think this means that you didn't have all of the original amnesia background music files in the first place... or they are in use for some reason, did you have one of them open in a media player/editor? If you'd like I can sure upload a simple SFX archive for you.
