GOG never ceases to amaze me on their great attention to detail and amazing support.

Thank you.

DanyKing: Interesting. I contacted support about this, and eventually found out that the cracks only appeared in my somewhat outdated version of VLC. With the new version, everything sounded fine at first. There were still cracks in one place, though. But I thought they were due to the player, as before. I hope this isn't just converted MP3s now :)

JudasIscariot: Feel free to run the files through Spek and you'll see they reach into the 22 KHz range. MP3's and MP3's converted into FLACs won't :)
Judas your answer is very misleading :

an MP3 has its high frequencies cut-off (it's the nature of the format -> lossy)

a transcoded MP3->FLAC will display the same cut-off frequencies (i believe it's what you wanted mean or i missed something ?) , except the weight will be much more important.....

because offering transcoded mp3 into flac it's big a NO-NO >.<

It was clear to me, though :) I'm glad the GOG team takes matters seriously and is aware of how multimedia codecs work. I haven't had the chance to look at the new version yet - but it's a wonderful feature to have proper FLAC content around. To me, that's as if I got a soundtrack CD for free for which other companies would charge me $30 easily. I'm sure there are games on GOG which would be worth buying just for the sake of getting the soundtrack :)
Hi guys

Excuse my ignorance, but what is FLAC OST?
Exactly (in plain English please) what has been changed?

Thanks :)

Flac is a lossless format for music/sound

OST stands for original soundtrack
Thanks GOG! Sounds great.
Just noticed the update couple of days ago :) Well done guys!
So is this an in-game update that requires re-downloading and re-installing the game?
Or does it only apply to the sound track mp3s?

Thanks
siddham: Pay attention, the update is to FLAC soundtrack, not MP3 soundtrack.

Edit: (in case it's not obvious, I can mention that FLAC gives better sound quality than MP3.)

This only applies to the bonus content OST (which is available in high quality, lossless FLAC - the version that got fixed - and lossy, but still good quality MP3) and has nothing to do with what's actually in-game.

Perhaps you might pay attention and answer the question I asked.

Flaming did answer my actual question.

He wasn't flaming. I also assumed you didn't know what FLAC is. Actually, I'm still not sure if you do or not?

To answer your question, it only applies to the sound track FLACs. Nothing to do with the mp3s. Nothing to do with in-game.
