Does this come with the soundtrack?
It was released in a simpler time, and usually the music files were to be found in the game dir.
I just want the soundtrack, could someone who has bought the game check?

Yes, the soundtrack comes with the game's data files once installed. You should buy the game and play it yourself too, because its gameplay is part of what made it a classic.

I've played it before, I've got it on cd somewhere, if I didn't throw it out. Which is why I know both the soundtrack and game is very good.

But ty, I'll get it.

The game isn't quite as "simple" with regards to its music as you might think. Some older games on CD used to store their soundtracks as CD Audio right on the disk, so you could simply listen to the soundtrack on a CD player just like any audio CD so as long as you skipped the Data Tracks. Mechwarrior 2 and Age of Empires 2 are two such "classic" PC game titles that stored game soundtracks in this fashion.

Of course, CD Audio is a notoriously bloated audio format, otherwise we wouldn't be limited to "74 minutes of music per disc." That's how compressed audio formats came into play, and Sacrifice is one of them. At least it's not in a proprietary audio format, which makes extracting the files on your own much easier than, say, the excellent soundtracks for the earlier Command and Conquer titles.

Hnnngh used to listen to the mechwarrior cd's all the time, same with Carmagaddon and Quake 1. Which is it though with sacrifice?

Don't worry, Sacrifice's soundtrack is all in the (getting rather old right now) MP3 format, easily copied to any MP3 player or played with Windows Media Player.

At least that's easier than another favourite turn-of-the-millenium title of mine, Aquanox 2: Revelation which stored its music and sound effects in a proprietary format. I still can't find out how to extract them.
