I've bought every single release from "Realms of Arkania 2: Star Trail", since it's my favorite DOS game, but to have it here on GOG as German CD version as well it's just awesome! :)
There are a few scenes voiced, but the main difference makes the full soundtrack (3 audio cds for Realms of Arkania 1+2).
I do hope the full soundtrack will be added to the English version, but in the mean time, can the audio from the German version be used with the English version?
Hi, as far as I remember the English version of RoA2 is a hybrid - CD version animations plus music and speech pack from the floppy version - as far as I am concerned the CD music does not really add as much to the game as it does for RoA1 but that is because at the time I played it I had a decent hardware Roland General Midi Daughterboard that made the music sound virtually as good as the CD soundtrack (so stuff Soundblaster/Adlib FM music ;-)) - even in the German CD version I still play with General Midi music !!! (alright, yes I am a bloody Kraut ;-))
(as far as I am concerned, anybody playing old DOS games with Soundblaster/Adlib if General Midi is possible seriously belongs in a loonie bin - DOSBox emulates sound equipment for free that used to cost a fortune (!!!) at the time...)
(even with RoA 3 use Soundblaster 16 for speech instead of Soundblaster AWE 32 - it sounds a bit more crisp (listen closely !!!)
