Into the Fire Game Soundtrack

Hi Everyone, new subscriber here,
I wondered if anyone on the forum could help me ...

I gather from the below threads on The First Ones forum that there was a very limited-quantity CD with 5 x 10-12-minute tracks containing the music from the Into the Fire Babylon 5 space-flight simulator:
http://www.firstones.net/forums/inde...t-sim-music-cd
http://www.firstones.net/forums/inde.../b5-game-music

They had these 5 tracks on YouTube until recently, when the user that uploaded them suddenly disappeared.
I've found the shortened versions available on:
https://musicofbabylon5.com/miscellaneous/
... but the longer tracks are arranged more nicely and contain extra stuff.

I wondered whether anyone might still have access to those files and be able to point in the right direction of where to get them?

Best Regards and thanks for any advice you could give

Hi Looney,
Thanks for the welcome!
You have a good forum here and a very friendly admin who helped me with the registration password.

Fingers crossed, one of our regulars here will have the files handy somewhere

Re: Into the Fire Game Soundtrack

Interesting, I would like to hear these tracks! I think I have most or all of the B5 soundtrack CDs. I wish more of the season one episode soundtracks had been released, the music was sometimes darker, moodier, ominous.

Hi Raw Shark,
You can get a good idea of what they sound like from the miscellaneous page on:
https://musicofbabylon5.com

But, as I say,the full-length ones are much better.

I did ask over at firstones.net over IRC but wasn't able to get my account sign-up validated.

Re: Into the Fire Game Soundtrack

I've only got the shortened versions that are on the Music of Babylon 5 website. I didn't realise there was a limited edition CD – wow, that's going to be one of my holy grails now.

I'd love for a speciality soundtrack label like La La Land or Intrada to release some sets of B5 music. There were lots of episodes that never got a CD release, mostly from the first two-and-a-half seasons.

Ah with more than one person looking, our chances have doubled.

I did write an email to Christopher Franke some time ago but I knew even less about what I was asking for then. So it mightn't have been crystal clear, from my email, what I was looking for.
I presumed at that stage that there must have been a commercial, if small-scale, CD release of that music.
In any event, I didn't get any answer back from there.

The longer tracks are just extended versions of what you've heard from the musicofbabylon5 site but they do have some extra bits in and the length of them makes them useful to listen to while you're busy doing other things.
In any event, 55 minutes of combined runtime is better than 25 minutes

Why do I keep forgetting to come back and read this when I have time?!?!?!?!?!?!

Please keep talking. LOL I do have all of the CDs as far as I am aware, but I have definitely never heard of this one.

Incidentally, this website; khinsider has the shortened tracks at a slightly higher bit-rate than the Bab5 music website ...

Re: Into the Fire Game Soundtrack

Is this FIRSTONES place where everyone goes after I have bored them to tears?
