Without playing an unofficial copy of the game? I want to play through GOG but there is a free version with full music tracks apparently. Any way to get that in this version, or should I consider the money I spent on this version wasted?

EDIT: Just tried the free version of the game (War2Combat) and the tracks are fading out early there too. If the issue with the Bnet version is just that the tracks fade rather than looping I am OK with that. I don't like if I'm missing new melodies etc. though.

Some pre-compiled packs. Someone post it here in the this forum as well.
My advise if to find... well... best solution - keep it as is. There is no lossless solutions possible.

If you want a little bit better quality - find CDs (or only CD for expansion?) and grab music from them to wav files. using mpqeditor add it to mpq... backup patch.mpq and add to there, they should load before original files.
Or you can use existed pre-compiled music if you dont want to do anything manually.

The tracks are full. It seems to be a common misconception that the music tracks aren't, simply because they were made to loop on themselves. If you extract the music files, play them with a player and listen to the end of the track without and then with loop on and it'll become clear.

I don't know why Blizzard decided to change it from the DOS version where only one track played per mission and looped on itself to them playing all tracks, but it is what it is.

As for the quality of the track, I couldn't tell you, I'm not an audiophile, but the BNE versions sound fine to me.
