Post tutorial RSS Driver Parallel Lines Restore PS2 Music

Missing all those tracks from the PS2 version? Want to add them back in? I've got you covered.

Posted by on - Basic Installers

With the move from PS2 to PC, there were a lot of things cut, some things changed, and of course, some things still fine as they are.
One thing notably different is the soundtrack. It's lacking songs from both eras, and overall, it makes the experience repetitive, from an audio selection perspective at least.
I recommend turning the volume for music down to half that of sound effects for optimal performance, though I made sure to keep the volume of added tracks reasonably close to the original music included
with the game.

[How it works and Conclusion]
The way this works, the game's engine loads .XA files from the music directory for each era... 01-50 being 70's era and 51-99 being the 2006 era.
However, due to certain complications when porting over the Driver: Parallel Lines experience, yes, a lot of audio had to be cut.
Yet for some reason, it's possible to load .XA files in their place and still allow this game to function.
I made sure to find each and every track that was left out, refine them, and add them in, for a complete experience.
Thank you for reading, and I hope this helps!
