Remastering of the soundtrack, including licensed songs, with files from their original sources (Rik Schaffer, Darling Violetta, etc.)
How to install:
Drop the "Unofficial_Patch" and "Vampire" folders, which contains the music, where the exectuable is located:
(Steam\steamapps\common\Vampire The Masquerade - Bloodlines)
This is a simple addon to use with VTMB, along with Unofficial Patch 10.9 with the plus patch installed, mostly because it restores unused music and it implements it in some areas of the game, which I also remastered.
- Almost 80% of the soundtrack is remastered in this addon, some files I couldn't get an original source, others I couldn't get a clearer quality source, but most of it is here.
- The song "Clean" from Womb which is found in Santa Monica's Diner is brought back with clear quality from the original song! So it's the same song, but with lyrics.
- All of the files are in the bitrate of 192 kbps, I've tried 320 kbps but... the game didn't like that. But it's an overall improvement over the original files, which some were at 128 kbps or 92 kbps. All taken from Rik Schaffer's recent HD releases of the soundtrack and the licensed songs from their respective composers in album quality.
- Maybe in the future I'll be adding more features to it, such as continuity in a few songs, I can't crack how to replace .wav files since they don't load despite being the same bitrate and size and length.
- I've replaced the default Combat Music with an alternate version from Rik Schaffer, mostly because it sounded more fitting with the rest of the soundtrack... but I've left the original file in case you don't like it!
Anyways! I hope you like it, it might not be easy to pick up but there's noticeable improvement in some places.
I don't take ownership over any song, music or score included in this, I'm only a fan who loves their videogames and always want to restore them back to glory when possible.
This is my first mod, so... I hope I did well, any issues or bugs, please let me know in the comments!
Good evening, kindred.
