Duke Nukem 3D N64 and Saturn Music Packs
Since the Duke PSX music pack is having a lot of success, I made packs for the N64 and Saturn versions a while ago and posted them in another thread. Here, I am rereleasing them in a better place, with some bugs fixed. Thanks to TerminX for a bug report; I found the rest.
  • The packs would not run without the HRP installed, unless you added a command line paramater. (TerminX)
  • The Saturn Grabbag sufferered from poor quality OGG conversion, resulting in staticy cymbals.
  • The N64 pack made ambient sounds, like the strip club music, go blank, instead of having no modification.
Extract the 7-Zip archives to your EDuke32 directory. The .zip files will automatically be added to autoload. If you want them to work, either remove the duke3d.def file from the directory if you have one, or if you have custom modifications, add n64.def or saturn.def to the load cycle. If you do not want to use the HRP, then either disable highres textures and models in the video menu, or run the batch file included, which will just use the music DEFs.

Some other notes:
  • If you add the PSX music pack before the Saturn one, I think that all of the non-Saturn music will have the PSX versions in place of MIDIs. The N64 version has no level music on purpose, but it could still have the new sound effects.
  • The Saturn pack takes precedence over the N64 pack in autoload, because of their filenames. Because they have “w” before the file name, they will load after everything else normally in your directory, except the Duke D.C. HRP, which has “x”.
  • If you have a problem with the Saturn rendition of Stalker, then just extract the saturn.def file to your directory and comment out the listing for E1L1. Personally, I don't.
  • If you want level music in the N64 pack, then extract n64.def to your directory and comment out everything but the two entries that go to “highres/n64/grabbag.ogg”.
  • If you want a Mega Drive music pack because you like the music, go splash some cold water on your face.

Cool, Im gonna download this just so i can hear the saturn music, i really ought to buy Duke 3D for my saturn.
Mega Drive music pack? how about a soundblaster one? i was considering doing a GUS one, but figured it would probably fail to make a single download, seeing as how my SoundCanvas one didn't hang about for long.

I've never heard the saturn music before, this should be interesting.

Thanks for this.
Downloading now.

Will be interesting to see how the game plays with the Saturn soundtrack backing it.

The Saturn soundtrack is awesome. It's just too bad they couldn't fit the whole soundtrack on a CD .

Re: Duke Nukem 3D N64 and Saturn Music Packs
I never played the Saturn version, so never understood how their soundtrack worked.

From what I just read, was it a case of only being able to fit a portion of Duke 3D's soundtrack into the game?

If that's the case, what music did the levels have if their original track was missing from the CD?

The Saturn soundtrack is redbook CD audio on the game CD. Obviously you can't fit all 43 songs (32 if it only had the first 3 episodes, which is probably the case) as CD audio tracks on a single CD. They are a random selection of the whole game. I know Stalker is included, as is Gotham (my favourite), XPlasma (also a good rendition), Grabbag (Lee Jackson's Atomic CD track version), and others. I don't remember off-hand. Just download the guy's pack and you'll find out.

Re: Duke Nukem 3D N64 and Saturn Music Packs
Oh I'm already ahead of you and downloaded this great pack.
I thought that lack of storage space would be the obvious reason but thought I'd double-check it.

The only thing I'm really curious about though is what tracks played on the Saturn version, when you played a level with it's own original song removed due to the lack of a full soundtrack.

I can see that Hendricks has written the defs file to revert back to the PC's default midi soundtrack, however I assume that's not the case when actually playing the Saturn Duke 3D.

So was just wondering if anyone knew which tracks were played on which level?

I don't know. I haven't actually played the different versions.

I could make a FLAC pack of the Saturn one, but it would be useless without FLAC support.
